About the Libratone Zipp
The Zipp looks great: An unusual shape, covered with wool and available in a lot of different colors.
How do you get your music from your iPhone, iPad or iPod to the Zipp? There are several options: At home over your network with AirPlay, on the go with the Libratone Direct feature (kind of direct connection with AirPlay), using a cable with mini jack (Aux input), with an USB connection or DLNA (so this is also for Android).

Reviews of the Libratone Zipp (AirPlay Speakers)
The Libratone Zipp is one of the best-sounding and best-looking portable wireless speakers out there, but its high price and Wi-Fi limitations give us pause.
With its clever AirPlay and PlayDirect implementations, its simple setup process, and its attractive design, the Zipp is an easy speaker to recommend. If you want a portable AirPlay speaker, it’s an excellent option—as long as the price isn’t too steep for your needs.
It’s the sound quality, however, that really steals the show. Open and clear in the treble, the Libratone Zipp instantly makes us sit up and take notice. There’s no harshness to treble notes, there’s no boominess to bass – it’s easy to listen to with all sorts of tunes.
