Parrot has designed the perfect solution, introducing wireless headphones that act as an extension to your Smartphone.

Zik Smartphone HeadsetLike your Smartphone, Zik has integrated a sensitive touch panel, giving hyper-intuitive access to the various features available. Sliding your finger vertically on the touch-sensitive control panel adjusts the volume of your music or the callers voice, and moving your finger horizontally plays the next track or returns to the previous one. Zik also has a unique head detection sensor: simply remove your heaphones to pause your music. The Bluetooth connection is then automatically reconfigured so that your Smartphone operates independently again.

For optimum listening comfort while on the phone, Zik is equipped with two technologies for pinpointing the sound of your voice. Combined with the use of a double microphone, the bone detection sensor detects and analyzes the vibrations of the jaw in order to detect only your words and remove any background noise.

I instantly I fell in love with the Parrot Zik’s. They are simply the best headphones I have ever owned.

The sound and noise cancellation is outstanding, and they are comfortable to wear. No other bluetooth headphones I have tried come close to these.

Touch controls make it easy to adjust volume, change tracks, pause/restart play, and I just love the feature that pauses play when I take them off, and resumes automatically when I put them back on.

It was really easy to pair them to my, iPad, iPhone and Macbook Pro. I had no problems with the bluetooth connection reliability.

The Parrot Audio Suite makes setting up the headphones, and changing sound settings a breeze.

Comes with a hard protective case, as well as a soft one (pouch) which is great for keeping them safe.

Would be nice though to have a battery level indicator appearing on the iPhone to make it easy to see what the remaining battery life is without having to open the app.

I’ve always respected Parrot Products, they are unique, innovative and consumer focused. I had no doubt that the Zik headphones would be great. After all, Parrot claims they have created the world’s “most advanced wireless headphones”.

From the moment you open the box, you realise the that is was build with precision and care. The feel of the Zik is of quality. A particular focus on aesthetics and simplicity. Designed by renowned Philippe Starck. And it shows, it is beautiful.

The noise cancellation is very good.
The Zik uses four microphones that monitor the surrounding noise, then it creates opposing sound waves to actively cancel the noise.

The Zik uses the following audio codecs: AAC & SBC.
I tested it by connecting the jack to a DAC and to the headphones.
To me, an important element for great sound is to listen to it at low volume, I know, it sounds strange, but the way any headphone performs at low volume is of paramount importance to the audio quality it delivers. The Zik did not disappoint at any stage. I used various uncompressed files from Classical to Modern music. The sound is pristine. In all ranges, from good quality lows to full mids and dynamic highs. But the beauty of these headphones is in its flexibility. Use the App to tweak the sound to your exact liking.
From Mp3’s to uncompressed, from Bluetooth to direct in, the headphones sounded exceptionally good.

The touch surface is ideal for interacting with devices, no need to touch your phone or PC. You can control various functions of the Zik by sliding your finger on the surface of the right ear cover.
A very intuitive feature.

It is certainly not an impulse buy, but a well formulated decision to own a unique set of earphones.
No doubt that you will be extremely happy with the Zik. Not only will the technology of the Zik’s amaze you today, but it guarantees to be future proof. Parrot’s firmware updates will add more functionality and features in time to come. I personally hope they add a battery indicator without having to go into the app. Maybe increase battery life and refine the app a bit more.
Its pure audio brilliance. In every sense.
Thats value for money.
You will appreciate music again.

Well done Parrot, I think you certainly created the world’s best wireless headset.

You're in good hands
