    B&W C5 Review: Sound Great, Look Classy, And Strong Like Bull

    It’s amazing that in 2011, roughly 1,000 years after the earbud was originally created, a model could come along that’s actually innovative. But Bowers & Wilkins actually did it. The C5 in-ear headphones debuted several weeks back and I’ve been testing a pair for a while. In short: I’m in love. Oh, it’s not just that they sound great; they’re made by… Read More

  • Bowers & Wilkins Announce The Tiny PM1 Audiophile-Class Compact Loudspeaker

    Before the Zeppelin iPod dock made Bowers & Wilkins a commonplace name in the world of gadgets, the company was known for its amazing, but pricey, loudspeakers.

  • Review: Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin mini

    The design of the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin mini is a thing of beauty. Not as much so as the $800, full-size Zeppelin, but that’s fine. It’s sort of like how da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man might not be the Mona Lisa, it’s still a work of art. But as good as it looks, it can be very frustrating to use. It’s not the Zeppelin mini’s fault though; iTunes is… Read More

But a few things actually managed to impress me so far as I stumble through CES and its constellation of surrounding events. So here they are, a handful of goodies I saw and heard that make my ears glad to be attached to my head. At least… Read More

  • Bowers & Wilkins 685 Speaker Review

    After checking out B&W’s 685 stereo speakers for more than a month, I’m truly impressed. These mid-size speakers are perfect for a roomy bookshelf or on speaker stands, and they handled all the music I could throw at them with precision and superb richness. Movies still benefit from a decent subwoofer, but most acoustic music lovers can do without one in a small living room. Read More

  • B&W Zeppelin iPod Speaker: Could Be The Best Looking One Yet

    Another Zeppelin story today. But this one isn’t about the most overrated band in history aside from the Beatles, it’s about an iPod speaker which looks unique enough to read the following few sentences. B&W calls it the Zeppelin, presumably because of its shape and not B&W’s affinity for pompous rock bands. Somewhere in there you’ll find a 5-inch subwoofer… Read More
