B&W Loudspeakers is one of the most respected names in the speaker industry, so when they create a strangely-shaped iPod dock, the audiophile public is sure to take notice. The B&W Zeppelin takes on a very unique shape with bulging sides like a football (I’m talking American football, not
soccer everyone else’s football), floating around with plenty of sound quality.
The Zeppelin isn’t exactly the smallest iPod speaker dock on the market, measuring a solid two feet across, but it is probably one of the best looking. Inside the rounded exterior, you’ll find five speaker drivers, including a 5-inc woofer, glass-fiber cones, and tapered tubes for tweeters. Unlike the tinier, glossier speaker docks on the market, the B&W Zeppelin puts out a very respectable 100 watts of juice.
All this power comes at a price, however, and that price is $599. But hey, isn’t it cool having your Apple iPod protruding out the front like that?
