14524-10134-Zeppelin-Wireless-Beauty-1-lAirPlay is Apple’s standard for wirelessly streaming audio. Essentially one could think of it as a connection exclusively for iOS and Mac devices. Now if you happen to be in the market for new AirPlay compatible speakers, you might be interested to learn that Bowers & Wilkins has recently debuted their new Zeppelin Wireless speakers.

These speakers are shaped and look more or less like its predecessor, however the main difference here is that Bowers & Wilkins is really forcing the wireless connectivity onto users. Gone is the Lightning dock meaning that apart from using AirPlay, the only way you will be able to play music and connect devices to it would be via a 3.5mm jack and Bluetooth connectivity.

The speaker will also feature an Ethernet port to hook it up to your network, and there is also support for WiFi and Spotify Connect. So like we said, it seems that the only physical way to connect now would basically be through the 3.5mm audio jack, thus making the Zeppelin Wireless truly wireless.

As for the hardware specs, the speaker will feature a 50-watt 6-inch subwoofer, along with two 1-inch tweeters, two 3.5-inch midrange drivers that are rated at 25-watts each. There is also an upgrade DSP that converts to 24-bit, 192kHz sound. The speaker is currently available for purchase in the UK but it is expected to arrive stateside in the coming weeks where it will be priced at $699.
