Product Information

  • Overview

    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.

    Innovative Interface

    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.

    Never maintain a connection and turn off for no reason and often impossible to turn back on for hours if not days.

Bluetooth noise cancelling. They've got style, touch controls, but most of all a plethora of sounds. You will hear stuff you’ve never heard before and the app allows you to customise the sound to the nth degree right up to to concert level. Worth every penny. If your loved one loves music, you'll go down in history with a gift of these.

    I'm not an audiophile and the musicians would no doubt knock these cans. I, however, think they are just wonderful. They are gadge I'm not an audiophile and the musicians would no doubt knock these cans. I, however, think they are just wonderful. They are gadgety enough for me (touch controls et al) and so very easy to use. It's my last point that is the most important ... I have a pair of Sennheiser headphones which have all the features you would expect, noise reduction, real leather etc., BUT they are not easy to use. These Ziks are. No doubt they are priced way too high but THEY"RE EASY TO USE and that's what makes them great in my book. The sound is good too, to my ears.
