Advanced Technology

Z2 is packed full of some of the most advanced acoustic technology around. Digital Signal Processing keeps music sounding amazingly rich, controlled and fully formed. Z2 performs like a much larger speaker system, no matter how loud you play it.

Class D Amplifiers

Z2's versatile size is disproportional to performance; critical to this are the carefully selected amplifiers. The latest class D amplifiers provide pristine sound across the whole audible bandwidth. To the listener the result is smooth and clean high frequencies, and a surprisingly deep, full bass output.

Digital Signal Processing

For many docking speakers, when played at high volume levels, the sound become unlistenable and incoherent. Z2 takes a clever approach by applying propriety Digital Signal Processing. Z2 monitors and analyses the audio signal at every sample and intelligently optimises the system to ensure controlled bass output and room filling sound at all listening levels.

Bowers & Wilkins History

In leading recording studios around the world, music that will soon be heard everywhere is first heard through Bowers & Wilkins loudspeakers. In London's world-famous Abbey Road Studios, all three main studios use Bowers & Wilkins 800 Series speakers to capture the output of the world's biggest selling artists.

Engineering Innovation

Every discovery Bowers & Wilkins' scientists make in their dedicated Research and Development facility influences how speakers all over the world are designed and built. Technologies such as Nautilus Tapering Tubes and Flowport start life in their high-end loudspeakers, but are also important factors in the likes of Zeppelin Air and A7.

Doing It from Day One

When John Bowers set up Bowers & Wilkins in 1966, experimentation in sound and recording was escalating rapidly. It was the time of Sergeant Pepper and Pet Sounds, and Bowers had a pioneering spirit to match. His ambition was revolutionary for the day, and remains so: to create a loudspeaker that neither adds nor takes away from the music. Bowers & Wilkins has been exploring the world of sound ever since. And they'll never settle for less than perfection.

Easy to set up for wifi, and great sound.
Charles Falls
Poor Documentation: Enclosed set-up instructions are very poor (look online for manual).
Sound is room-filling and surprisingly loud for its size without any distortion.

For those wanting a mobile speaker for their "iDevice", the new connector on the iPhone 5 and latest iPods made it necessary to choose between an adapter cord (no longer truly docking) or going wireless. The dock speakers have the innate advantage of charging the device or keeping it from depleting while playing. Docking speakers with the Lightning connector have been slow to come out. A couple of the initial offerings have been lower end (bad sound, not great construction). Finally, here is the fix! B&W released the Z2 as the latest in their Zeppelin (shaped) speakers and speaker docks at the end of March, 2013. It was immediately reviewed in a popular PC MAGazine and received their Editor's Choice award. It supports Apple's AirPlay so you can go wireless if you wish, even relaying from one Apple device to the next in your rooms. The form factor is about the size of a slightly deflated football--just barely over a foot long--so it's compact without being small. The bigger brother, an updated Zepplin Air, is scheduled to be released in June with a retail of $599. If you're looking for a system immediately, you would do well to confirm that you're getting an Air with Lightning from your vendor (as when new models come out there is always initial labeling confusion). The sound defies the size of the unit, though! (It's rated at 40 watts but sounds MUCH more powerful than I expected. The highest volumes do give up some clarity.) The bass is clear without being overpowering. (B&W uses Flowport technology--and you would be forgiven for thinking Bose here in the best way possible. It similarly uses a tunnel to craft sound within the device. The rear-facing port is dimpled to expand its surface area, like a golf ball. It works well!Read more ›

For some reason, this speaker has received great reviews. By all means, it's practical and the sound is ok.. but that's it. The new price ($199) is about what it's worth, if not a little on the expensive side.

It will work fine in a small room, like your bathroom, but again don't expect miracles. The bass is a bit too overpowered and sounds like it's boxed in, so you quickly get tired/annoyed if you listen for too long (I've tried this in different room with the same results, so I know it's not the acoustics). If you're used to the "boom blaster sound", however, I guess you'll be happy with it.

Another drawback is its aging wifi technology. The manual doesn't mention it, but the speaker doesn't support the 802.11n wireless standard, which means you might need to configure your router to using older (and slower) standards. Not a dealbreaker, but certainly annoying. On the plus side, however, you can configure it using a web browser and don't have to rely on an app (although you can if you want) - which is a big plus and ensures it will last for many years.

To sum it up, it works well as an airplay speaker in a small room and controlling it from iTunes or AirFoil is a breeze. If you don't immerse yourself in the hype and consider it for what it is - a medium priced speaker with ok sound and practical functions - you'll probably be content with it.

Just plugged in my iPhone 6 and it works just as great as the 5s. We put it in the kitchen and it fits perfectly in the corner. Love that it can be used as a dock to recharge the phone. The quality of sound depends on what you are used to. Way better than my clock radio, but not as good as my home stereo speakers. Certainly good enough to listen to NPR in the morning.

I love most everything Bowers and Wilkins makes, this speaker is no exception. I have had the speaker for little over a month now and have really noticed it open up. Like all speakers I own from this company, they all seem to sound better after the first week or two of solid listening. The bass kicks for its size and sounds even better near a wall since the port is on the back. The midrange is what really stands out on this little guy. Tons of clarity when listening to a Spotify song on 'extreme' setting over airplay. To be honest the midrange is a little more preferable to my ear over my b&w 685 bookshelf speakers. The treble is up to par but nothing special, i imagined that would be the case when the midrange and lower frequencies are features on this speaker, it would be difficult to hold a good high not without pulling away from the other two categories without a designated tweeter to do the work.
It gets LOUD but I do not recommend blasting it as it begins to distort past 80 percent. This might be a deciding factor for you but before you walk away let me point out that i can hear it from my kitchen while it plays in the living room when at 50 percent only. I have the soundkick made by soundfreak and even when it is turned all the way up this speaker is still louder even at 50 percent. The two are not comparable in price or quality but this might comfort those who know that the soundkick does a good job in the loudness department. It will never fill a dance hall or anything but it does what it was designed for and that is to fill a room in your house.
I hear complaints about airplay lagging, dropping, or simply never working but I have had none of these problems.
