Music listening habits have come a long way since Bowers & Wilkins launched Zeppelin speaker dock eight years (!) ago in 2007. The overhauled Zeppelin ditches the dock and adds Bluetooth — which is pretty much exactly what the thing needed.
For our iPod dock Battlemodo we tested new 30-pin speaker docks under $500 Australian from Sony, B&W, Logitech and Altech Lansing.All of them are compatible with both iPods and iPhones.
Come March, the original high-end iPod dock won’t require docking. Equipped with new drive units and subtle design tweaks, B&W’s Zeppelin Air adds streaming AirPlay to the mix for $US600. [Bowers & Wilkins]
