Parrot, along with world-renowned French designer Phillipe Starck, have collaborated once again to create Zik wireless headphones. Integrating touch control, advanced technology and sleek design, they deliver superb sound and comfort.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)
Four active microphones (two internal and two external) make this patented Parrot technology one of the best in its class in ANC. It provides up to 98% reduction, eliminating nearly all external sound.
An ultra-intuitive touch sensitive panel located on the right ear cup gives you easy control. When you're listening via Bluetooth, simply swipe up and down to increase and decrease volume, and forward and back to conveniently skip tracks. Also, a head-detection sensor automatically senses when you're wearing the headphones and when you're not. When you put the headphones around your neck, the music pauses and your call is switched directly to your mobile device. When you put the headphones back on, your music resumes.
Unique listening quality
When using a standard headset, your right or left ear can only hear music coming from the right or left side of the headset. To recreate true-to-life sound, Parrot has developed a unique specialisation sound called the “Parrot Concert Hall” effect. So instead of hearing the music from the side, you feel as though the sound is coming from directly in front as if you were listening to a live concert.
Free yourself from wires
Listen to music or make crystal-clear calls seamlessly and wirelessly via Bluetooth. Choose to control your calls and music directly from your device manually or via voice recognition, earphone touch panel or from Parrot's free Audio Suite App on an iPhone. Bluetooth streaming is available with all Bluetooth-compatible devices.
Parrot hands-free calling
Originally designed for Parrot car systems, hands-free calling is now part of Zik. It's specifically engineered for crystal-clear conversation. Equipped with two directional microphones and a Jawbone Conductor, the Zik captures the vibration of the jawbone and merges it with the sound of your voice for reliable calls. Thanks to the embedded head detection sensor, if you receive a phone call while listening to your music, you can remove your headphones and your call will be automatically be switched to your smartphone.
Free downloadable app
The Parrot Audio Suite is a free app you can download from the App Store for your iPhone. It lets you control all of your music wirelessly. For instance, you can adjust your audio settings to explore your favourite customised sound and simulate a virtual music scene creating your desired sound depth. The app also notifies you whenever there's a new software version so you can download it instantly.

Only downside is the fabric bag provided for storage doesn't protect headphones much at all. For the price paid it should have a hardshell case. …

I have been using many different headphones, Beats (executive, noise canceling, on-ear, bluetooth) , B&O, Bose (QC3 and QC15), S I have been using many different headphones, Beats (executive, noise canceling, on-ear, bluetooth) , B&O, Bose (QC3 and QC15), Sennheiser (HD800, PXC450) and Sony and thus far these have to be the best and most innovative headphones I have ever purchased. When I first got these I didn't really like the sound produced until I downloaded the app, then it was the best sounding phones hands down. What I really like about these headphones is you can control what type of environment that the sound is coming from such as, concert, jazz club and even living room.
I showed these headphones to others I worked with and now they are also looking at purchasing them for their own use. I haven't had any problems and they aren't cheaply constructed but they do weigh a bit more than the other headphones but you can get used to the weight.
Overall I would rate them 9 out of 10 because the battery goes down real fast. But I still truly enjoy the sound and control capability of the device. …

Best Headphones ever!!!
I've been using these headphones for a month now and whats not to like, it offers every single feature that I could possibly hope I've been using these headphones for a month now and whats not to like, it offers every single feature that I could possibly hope for. Comfortable to wear, the sound quality is crisp and clear, the Parrot Zik app gives me absolute control to alter the sound to the way I like it. The blutooth Active Noise Cancelling works perfect. The battery lasts all day. And unlike all other brands, if the battery dies, the headphones can still be used with the cable provided. The building controls of the head piece is so good that I don't touch my phone for hours while listening to music. If you're looking for the best, you've found it. …

Excellent Sound, Great Build Quality
First and foremost - these headphones sound great! The clear highs, and strong lows are incredible. Also, the ability to tune the First and foremost - these headphones sound great! The clear highs, and strong lows are incredible. Also, the ability to tune the EQ via the Parrot App is awesome, and lets you tailor the sound to your tastes. I really liked the "Tuned by Lou Reed" settings as well. Also, I found the Active Noise Cancellation worked really well in my environment. It isolates the listening experience and helps to totally immerse you.
Build quality on the set is great. Metal prevails everywhere it should for both beauty and strength. I think the Zik's will last a really long time. Also, pairing was a breeze and I was up and listening right after charging them up for the first time.
Overall, I'd recommend these headphones without reservation. I've had a bunch of different noise cancelling sets, but nothing has come close to the sound and quality level of the Zik headphones. …
