Fantastic speaker secretly trouncing bose, sony and sonos. Had this a couple of months now and i’ve been really pleased and impressed with it. I am very pleased to have bought this over the sonos, bose and sony offerings at this price point. It works in every respect, and works well and pretty damn classily too. It’s wifi friendly, easy to set up, reliable, stays connected and is always available as a sound output on all the 5000 devices in this house. The app is sleek, modern and easy to use, and makes the perfect accompaniment to this pleasing speaker. You can keep this on the charge lead or take it to the middle of a field and use via bluetooth. It’s got everything it needs to be called a, truly, wireless speaker.

Great sounding mini speaker packed with features. Lots of features and it’s portable. The base is a little weak for my liking but then again there is no distortion and sound sent in all directions. It’s the size of a jbl speaker. Update may 2016 – bass has improved over the months. Need to wear it in to get the best sound.

Blown away by the sound quality. I wanted a bluetooth speaker which gives you just that little bit more, but was still portable. The libratone zipp mini, totally blew me away from first opening the box, to the amazing sound quality it delivers. I am used to the bose, b&o, and sony quaity products. With the possible exception of bose, the libratone zipp topped all these. Opening the box, you are presented with a high quality cardboard tube. They type which you would expect an expensive vintage wine to come in. The top comes off with a suitable quality feel resitance, where you know it has been well made. Inside are the instruction pamphlets, a few in different languages. Next is a high dentitsy foam padding, in the top of which is the power supply, which comes with both the uk and euro interface, which you snap onto the power supply itself.

This product was provided free for review and i have to admit that initially it seemed quite overpriced. However, i love itit comes presented in a stylish cylindrical box. It looks top quality and i love teal, red and white colour-way. There is a leather wrist strap for portability. The radio stations are fine, but i use it mostly to stream imusic and play itunes. I downloaded the app and connected to wi-fi to play the radio, then paired my iphone (5s) with bluetooth through the settings. It occasionally needs re-pairing (mainly because i have several bluetooth devices), but i have found it problem free. The sound is great, although not as immersive as surround sound.

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.

I have tried many airplay/bluetooth speakers over the last couple of years. From bose, philips, pioneer, ihome and anker to name the best. However this zipp mini i just bought for our kitchen is the best by an absolute mile. It is amazing is so many waysi like to use airplay as i like to use the whaale app to stream to multiple rooms so having an airplay speaker is my preference. The zipps airplay functionality is fantastic. Nice touches like being able to play when speaker is in standby means you never have to touch it. You can control it from your iphone. I’ve had no problems with jumpy playback as some people have said. I would put those symptoms down to a poor wifi signal or a poor quality router that can’t handle the data streams.

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.

Very pleased, better than i expected. So far, so good ( have speakers for a couple of months now) i wanted speakers for airplay functionality, which is quite difficult to find at a reasonable cost. These are not cheap, but nor is the cost prohibitive. This is my third big name brand, started with pure contour and also have z2 bowers. Airplay- i have been really impressed with how painless the connection works to my iphone or macbook. As anyone who has ever tried airplay probably knows there are always problems with the signal being lost and delays. These are without a doubt the best speakers so far for that purpose as there have been no problems whatsoever. Hurrahradio – a surprise bonus has been the internet radio options also. Great choice although the app is a little fiddly and you can only save 5 favourites. Sound – absolutely excellent, especially given the compact size of the speakerstyling – i got the grey speaker and really like the subtle styling rather than a big ugly black boxdownsides- if i was being picky i would like an led type display on the speaker to show what is playing, but the libratone iphone app is fairly good as an alternative.

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.
