This post takes a look at ZIPP speakers by Libratone. These are really quite unique and state-of-the-art. What catches your eye quickly about ZIPP is that they can stream ALL apps natively. ZIPP can play audio and video apps directly from your mobile device, without the need for a proprietary app, like other wireless speakers need.
ZIPP can produce high quality sound, with deep bass, full midrange, crisp highs, 100-watts of power, and 360° FullRoom acoustics. You can pair up to 6 ZIPPS, which lets you experience incredible sound in one room or in multiple rooms (or even outside).
ZIPP supports Spotify Connect, AirPlay (iOS) and DLNA (Android). It’s a totally wireless option, with 10+ hour rechargeable battery, and unlike most other speakers that require AC power. ZIP is easy to port with a simple carrying handle, has very easy-to-learn touch-control interface, speakerphone, and a very easy to use App to get you moving quickly.
ZIPP lets you enjoy your music and audio content streamed to your ZIPP wireless speaker using your home WiFi network, or directly from your device using Bluetooth. It has full integration with Spotify, and the simple touch controls let you control everything directly from the ZIPP speaker, or you can easily control and configure it all from the Libratone App (iOS or Android).
Compared to popular Bluetooth speakers, ZIPP is much larger (2-4x the size) and packs much greater acoustic power (100 watts vs. only 10-12 watts). So ZIPP may sound better to you than many other Bluetooth speakers you have heard. It can produce deep bass, full midrange and crisp highs that will fill any sized room (or backyard) with amazing sound.
In addition to Bluetooth, ZIPP allows you to stream using WiFi, AirPlay (iOS), DLNA (Android), and Spotify Connect. You can also pair up to 6 ZIPP’s together to create fully immersive listening experiences in one room or in multiple rooms (or outside).
ZIPP can stream the most popular audio and video apps natively including Amazon Music, Apple Music, Pandora, Netflix, YouTube and future apps. You can even stream Spotify Connect and Internet Radio directly from ZIPP, without needing your phone, so it’s an incredibly flexible speaker option.
Selling for $299 at Amazon it’s not the cheapest speakers out there, such as the Jiafeng 6w Wireless selling for just $30, but ZIPP is surely one of the most versatile options you can select. It comes in 4 color choices, deep lagoon, cloudy grey, graphite grey and victory red.
The ZIPP is 10.3″ high x 4.8″ wide and weighs 3.3 pounds.
