Digital Active Noise Cancellation
Using 4 built-in microphones, ZIK listens to your surroundings and creates an acoustical “mirror” image, which cancels outside noises. You’ll experience the perfect, silent environment for music and calls.

Concert Hall Effect
When using a standard headset, your right ear only hears music coming from the right earphone and you left ear can only hear music from the left. To recreate true-to-life sound, ZIK uses a proprietary “Concert Hall” effect. Instead of hearing the music from the side, it makes you feel as though the sound is coming from directly in front as if you were listening to a live concert.

Downloadable Apps for iPhone® and Android® Devices
ZIK includes the Parrot Audio Suite, a unique and modern downloadable App for your iPhone or Android devices. Each App lets you adjust your audio settings and customize the soundscape for the particular music you’re listening to.

One-Touch Pairing via Bluetooth® Technology
Just touch your phone to the left earcup to pair NFC (near field communication) capable devices head with a crystal-clear Bluetooth® wireless connection. You can also connect to audio sources via a standard headphone cable (included).

Earpiece Touch Controls
Swipe the right ear cup up or down to change volume. Swipe forward or back to change tracks.

Senses Your Every Move
ZIK headphones have built-in motion detection that automatically pauses your music when you remove them from your head. ZIK also detects jaw movement (like when you’re on a phone call) and automatically adjusts its digital noise cancellation and volume for optimal call performance.

Design by Philippe Starck
The renowned French designer created Parrot ZIK headphones to be as beautiful to the eye and to the touch as they are to the ears.

Included in the Box
  • Mini jack cable, designed by Starck
  • Micro USB cable for charging and updating
  • Lined pouch to protect ZIK
  • Quickstart Guide in 8 languages

No Wires, Nice Sound, a Glitch or Two

Not for the purist yet! Having used other wired noise canceling headphones within a similar price range I can assure you that the sound quality and noise reduction is equal or improved. Read complete review

Not for the purist yet! Having used other wired noise canceling headphones within a similar price range I can assure you that the sound quality and noise reduction is equal or improved.

For me personally, not having to worry about the wire connected to the device is a huge freedom. No more running wire through shirt, jacket or disconnecting from the device by accident.

For the above mentioned freedom you will have to look past the occasional drop off of sound. Also, if you choose to pause the headphones by removing them from your head as opposed to simply tapping the ear, it can be a little quirky.

The phone functions work great great once you get use to speaking with the headphones over the ear.

NOW, ABOUT 8 MONTHS LATER: Stopped working, suddenly, completely. Worse customer service. Keep me on hold repeatedly, then hang up. If I try to use on-line customer service, I get canned responses telling me to remove battery and wait 5 minutes. They phones sounded nice. Was a good idea, but they are overly complicated, need constant updating, and now I find THEY STOP WORKING AND THEY COMPANY DOES NOT RESPOND. This scenario is PITIFUL FOR SOMETHING THIS EXPENSIVE

    Comments about ZIK Touch-Activated Bluetooth Headphones:

    I have to highlight the excellent touch controls that allow you to adjust volume up/down, track controls forward/reverse, playback pause/resume, and answer/hang up phone calls. Simply touch the right ear cup and perform the a simple gesture. I was extremely surprised and how responsive the touch controls were without any issues of incorrect actions being performed. As well, there is motion control, take the headphones off and playback is paused, put them headphones back on and playback resumes.

      Comments about ZIK Touch-Activated Bluetooth Headphones:

      Initial battery charge took a couple of hours for full power. The pairing process was quite simple. My iPhone found the headset immediately and paired quickly. When launching Parrot Audio Suite it informed me of an available update. I selected update firmware and it downloaded and transferred the update in no time.

      SOUND***
      Default sound settings are Parrot Concert Hall and it sounds really good. Overall gives a good "3D" sound a concert hall can provide. Sound coming from all angles in a good way. You can really tell the difference when you turn the Concert Hall effect off, because the sound kinda goes flat. Individual sounds become more pronounced. I'm pleased with this effect.

      The Lou Reed preset amplifies the sounds to bring them "closer to you." I love this preset for certain songs. It can make a song sound truly amazing but others can be base heavy.

      There is an equalizer setting which allows you to set your sound personally and this includes 6 more presets. They are Vocal, Pop, Club, Punchy, Deep and Cristal. One of these should fit your needs and if not you can always adjust according to get the sound you want.
      Overall, my favorite preset is the Lou Reed preset for the majority of songs I listen to.
      The sound these headphones put out is clear, sharp and in your face if you so choose.

      FEATURES***
      Call Quality is excellent, very clear and understandable.

      The touch controls are flawless and very intuitive. I didn't expect the volume to be able to be finely adjustable but the touch reminds me of the sensitivity and accuracy of Apple touch screens on iPhone and iPad. Switching tracks is just as intuitive with forward and backwards swiping over the right panel. Volume is swiping up and down. You can also pause and resume by tapping the right panel.

      When you take the headphones off, the track automatically pauses, and continues once you put them back on. You don't even have to give it a second thought.

      Noise Cancellation actually works and it does it well. I've used other noise canceling headphones before and they didn't quite do the job, but these came through for me. Great for studying and being on an important call.

      DESIGN***
      As for design, I must say these are a very stylish pair of headphones made with quality materials. Feels sturdy and well built. Even the cables are of premium quality and not cheap. The magnetic battery cover is a nice touch that is very well executed.

      Battery life is very good and holds its charge well when not in use.
      Using the headphones without power and only the cable works very well. Sounds very good and crisp. You obviously can't get all the eq presets from the Parrot suite but you can use the device eq presets on the hardware you are listening to. This should provide an even better dynamic range.

      OVERALL- Parrot Zik are stylish, feature rich, versatile, futuristic, comfortable headphones with EXCELLENT sound quality. Well worth the price tag!

      Comments about ZIK Touch-Activated Bluetooth Headphones:

      These headphones are simply AMAZING! I've been trying to use them in many situations to fully check them out. Primarily I use them at work while programming. But I've also used them while mowing the lawn.

      The active noise canceling works great!

      The sound, well, I have honestly never heard anything better! The bass is so deep and rich, I am hearing things that I've never heard before in songs!

      The bluetooth connection has been totally faultless so far. I was worried because with bluetooth speakers, I always end up with popping sounds. With these headphones, I have never had any sort of problems at all.

      The user interface is innovative and very useful!

      These are the best headphones that I have ever owned, or listened to!

        Hello all,

        I recently recieved these headphones and i've had beats, sennheiser, Bowers and wilkin, sure and various other brands that arent worth mentioning. but the parrot zik headphones by far are the best, in every way the sounds the richest, have cool features that i didn't know about until i tried them (i.e when you take them off the automatically pause!!) the Bluetooth range is great works in all corners of my condo approx 775 square feet and the build quality is one of the main things i look for when buying ... anything. These headphones are very well made and they feel very solid!!

        overall.... i don't think i could be happier.... they're great!!!!

                  Comments about ZIK Touch-Activated Bluetooth Headphones:

                  For my personal use, these headphones are absolutely PERFECT. I like watching programs with my iPad, applications like Netflix, Gaiam TV, Snag films, Cox Contour, etc… The sound quality, paired with the PARROT AUDIO SUITE, (a free downloaded application), bring this experience to a whole new level. When adjusting the EQ via the app, I can render the ideal sound, such as enhancing the vocals on talk interviews. Reading books and listening to concentration music is another pastime I enjoy, and again, the ZIK headphones are perfect for this.
                  The Quick Start guide included in the package was all I needed to understand how to use and enjoy the headphones. Within minutes after charging the battery , I was connected to my phone via Bluetooth and making calls.
                  I wanted to keep this review short and sweet, so….the bottom line? …comfortable, easy to use, great sound and absolutely PERFECT for my personal use. Oh, and the quality of material and looks of these ear cans are fantastic!

                    When I opened the box I knew these were going to be something special but they exceeded my expectations.
