    I Love My Zik!

    • Written by from Wrexham

    Best headphones on the market. Hands down. I do a lot of international travel with work, and have had these for a year and can vouch for them.
    I've worn them in rain, and they work fine. The noise cancelling is a bit weak on an aircraft when no music playing, but they're great with music playing.
    I regularly do 24+ hour flights, and 2 batteries hold on long enough, if I have no charging ports (some planes and my laptop are adequate.)
    The EQ gives you good control (I don't know of any other headphones with the EQ function).
    The voice calls sound superb.
    The touch controls are brilliant. Sometimes when I yawn real hard it'll pause my music as it thinks I've taken them off. (It pauses when you lift off your head) but there is an option to turn off auto pause. Be sure to enable noise cancellation on calls.

    But my absolute favourite thing with these phones is going through airport security.
    I lift them off my head, stick them in the tray, walk through the metal detector, put them back on and my music is right where I left off. And I haven't clicked a single button or untangled cables or had to unlock my phone.

    And the aircraft is not going to crash with bluetooth*. And not once has any steward(ess) stopped me from listening.

    Also you don't look like one of those idiots with hipster beats headphones with an eq curve that looks like a downhill ski slope.

    anyway. zik. all in all - excellent headphones, excellent eq control, excellent features, excellent (outstanding) design, but excessive price. plus you may need an extra battery.

    *not yet, at least
