When your wireless speaker comes suited in Italian wool, you know to expect a marriage of form and function. And sure enough, aside from having dapper style the Libratone Zipp does something remarkable: It streams wirelessly via AirPlay even without an Internet connection.
In addition, the Danish-made unit's cylindrical shape and ribbon-based tweeters translate to rich sound in every direction. But true portability means it's as at home in a cabin in the woods as it is in your living room.
And thanks to interchangeable zip-up sleeves in eight colors—three come with each speaker—the Zipp can be dressed for any occasion.
