Libratone Zipp Wireless tooth and Wifi Speaker – Deep Lagoon, Stylish design & clear sound

Portable Speakers

Fantastic flexibility but dodgy on wifi. I had these speakers recommended to me as a great portable music unit. I’ve owned them for 3 months now and great might be pushing it a little but i do like them. The plus points are easy to sum up. It looks good and the music quality is decent but you can get that from a number of brands, libratone is not tethered by the need for a plug socket. Airplay (i tend to play music through my iphone) drops out. The issue depends on the form of connectivity. Through bluetooth it’s generally fine, wifi is a different matter – it drops out all the time. When i have these issues i’ve checked the strength of signal on the libratone app and it generally say 80% (strong signal) and all other devices in our house have good connections. Doesn’t seem to matter though – libratone will play radio without issue but not airplay.

Excellent speaker, i have also now ordered zipp mini. Just take time to set it up. If you have any questions suggest don’t use the app support but you go to libratone. Com support site, i received a quick response.

Sound, user interface and designif i could i would give it 10 stars.

My experience with this speaker has been excellent. It was easy to set up, no fight to get my devices to find or recognise it at all – which makes a refreshing changethe sound quality is excellent, the tube design gives really clear 360 degree sound so standing this in the centre of my room meant that it was great all the way around, not better at the front and a bit off at the side/rear because the speaker wasn’t pointed at you. This is brilliant for coffee tables as the whole room has a great listening experience, though it does mean that it seems a little quieter than i expected, simply because you no longer get that ‘blasted’ in the face experience of a traditional speaker. Looks wise this is quite quirky, with a smooth white base and a textured material body, definitely not how speakers used to look, but stylish and funky. The sound quality is amazing, crystal clear. It is very easy to use and the instructions cover all you need to know, i also like being able to use the speakers control panel to control my music rather than having to use my phone for everything as sometimes this just isn’t practical. The speaker is able to work with others, though only having one i have not tested this for myself. The build quality is good, everything is slick and expensive looking, overall it is just great and i love it.

My (almost) constant companion. Wasn’t really sure about this when i first saw the product, and i was even less keen having read other reviews, but this is probably the most used gadget in my home after my iphone. Seriouslyi use the libratone zipp mini when i wake up, immediately connecting to my iphone so i can listen to music as i get ready for the day. It hangs on my door handle in my room when not in use, gets carried to the bathroom door handle, as i shower, comes back into the bedroom as i dress, and then downstairs to the kitchen for breakfast. As i leave the house, it hands on the closet door handle, where it is retrieved when i return home, and eventually makes it way back upstairs to the bedroom. And, yes, it is used when i’m reading in bed at night, too. It really is just that portable and the sound carries well in even room without distortion. I have a feeling it will travel with me, on those occasions i don’t wish to wear a headset. I am considering purchasing a second one to create that ‘stereo’ sound i’ve seen other reviewers mention, for my living room. The libratone zipp mini was so easy to set up, i didn’t even need instructions.

Libratone Zipp Wireless Bluetooth and Wifi Speaker – Deep Lagoon : Great speaker and there are ways to fix the issues some have mentioned. I have several airplay speakers including ones from more well-known hi-fi manufacturers and the zipp is my clear favourite. So much so, i now have two and if i feel i need another airplay speaker, that will also be a zipp. I’m not going to repeat the other reviews but just confirm that the battery and the one-touch radio function are killer apps for me and i get annoyed at my other speakers–including more expensive ones–for not having these features. What i will talk about though is some of the negatives that have been mentioned in these reviews, the first is patchy airplay. Sadly airplay isn’t as solid as sonos’ wireless so there is no such thing as a 100% solid airplay speaker as airplay itself isn’t 100%. However, what i have found is that the zipp (and other airplay speakers) can be patchy when on a 2. I moved mine (and my phone and mac) onto a 5ghz network and pretty much all the airplay glitches went away. Second negative i’ll deal with is the sleep function.

Really pleased with the device. Purchased the libtatone zipp from john lewis ( sorry amazon) having listened to it in a rather noisy shop environment. On getting it home and unpacked from its rather substantial tubular box i found it to be a quality product well made and an attractive design. I spent about 10 minutes setting it up using the libtatone app on an iphone 7. The instructions supplied are easy to follow and i soon had it playing music via airplay from my itunes library on my iphone. I also found it easy to set up bluetooth and play music from my google music. Sound quality from a speaker of this size is very good plenty of base plus good midrange unfortunately can’t comment on the top end due loss of high frequency hearing due to age, though my neighbor’s kid’s say it sounds ok. Volume level is more than adequate on internal battery or the power supply. Got to say my initial thoughts are that this is an excellent piece of kit even at £245. Will definitely buy at least another one (from amazon) as it possible to pair up to 6 together in different rooms.

Speaker sound quality is reasonable, although it keeps dropping connection which is very annoying having to sync speaker & ipod most times which can take 5-10 mins. Overall not worth the price tag.

Early days with this speaker but so far so good, well for the main part. Early days with this speaker but so far so good, well for the main part. After fighting with this thing for an hour trying to setup through the android app i gave up and used a pc which took me all of 2 minutes to do, so if you can only set this up with a phone i would warn you away from it as i just could not get it to connect to my wireless network. Bluetooth worked fine, but i find the sound quality a little lacking when streaming this way. Setup aside this is a great bit of kit. It looks fantastic for starters. I went with the lagoon green model which is really nice. Obviously the main selling point for this speaker is the sound quality, which thankfully, is really good. I’m coming from an old sony speaker which has served me well over the years but this thing blows it away. I do find it quite bass heavy, and i don’t believe there is a way to adjust this aside from the pre-sets in the app.

Finally. The speaker i have been looking for. After trying several alternatives i have found the speaker for me. It might not be the loudest, but it delivers a refined sound and can go plenty loud for me without breaking up or distorting. It’s also the swiss army knife of portable speakers, featuring bt, airplay, spotify connect, aux in, usb in, portability with 10 hours of battery, multi-room (stereo or left and right channels), internet radio built in, several colours etc etc. You pay for the privilege, but there is nothing out there that touches the zipp for it’s all rounded abilities. The only reservations i have is the time it takes for the app to load up the speakers, but that’s not really something one has to do that much. For the record, i tried a sonos 5 (overkill and quite expensive), yamaha wx010 (speakers went out of sync) and ruark mr1 mk2. (quality and finishing was not great on a £300+ speakers plus limited connectivity).

But with an existing n300 router performance was not great and need to uprate my router to a dual. Would have rated 5 star but with an existing n300 router performance was not great and need to uprate my router to a dual band ac1900.
