Gadgetsteria: Bowers & Wilkins Z2

Bowers_Wilkins_Z2_White_iPhone_AirPlayFor it’s size, the Z2 offers remarkably big sound, but that’s what you get for four bills. It’s lacking some of the bass punch of larger siblings the A7 and Zeppelin, but the pair of 3.5-inch full-range drivers easily fill a living room or bedroom, with plenty of volume to spare. At higher volumes, the higher frequencies thin out and become brittle, but the Z2 doesn’t distort, even when pushed to the max.

For casual listeners, the Z2 would make a great secondary listening system, especially if you already have other AirPlay-equipped speakers in other rooms. It’s not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
