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.

    Comments about ZIK Touch-Activated Bluetooth Headphones:

    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!

                Over the course of my life I have had a LOT of earphones, earbuds and headphones but nothing has ever been like the Parrot ZIK Headphones. These far surpass anything I have ever heard or felt. The sound quality and clarity is incredible.
                When I opened the box I knew these were going to be something special but they exceeded my expectations.
                I recommend them to everyone.

                  Comments about ZIK Touch-Activated Bluetooth Headphones:

                  I was gifted with the Parrot ZIK wireless headphones, so I went on-line to check out reviews and see what others were saying about them. I read many lengthy opinionated views, and after checking out the headphones for myself, agree with most of the positive and negative insights.
                  For my personal use, these headphones are absolutely PERFECT. I like watching TV with my iPad, applications like Netflix, Gaiam TV, Snag films, Cox Console, etc… The sound quality, paired with the PARROT AUDIO SUITE, (a free downloaded application), bring this experience to a whole new level.

                  Update:
                  When using the headphones to read and relax while listening to music and connected to my telephone (via the Bluetooth connection), makes it even more applicable knowing I will not miss any important phone calls.

                  When it comes to first impressions the ZIK headphones gets high score. The Zik's certainly is a real looker, combining aluminum and beautiful leather makes the overall design very appealing and inviting. I a nut shell these earphones doesn't look cheap, a slick eye-catching design and cutting-edge features like noise cancelation, wireless audio streaming, and touch-sensitive controls on the right earpiece.
                  These are really cool and expensive looking headphones, and sound quality is outstanding. It's also cool being able to control playback just by touching the earpiece al you need to do is tap to pause or play music, swipe forwards or back to skip tracks, swipe up or down for volume and surprisingly works really well. These earphones most definitely look the part and fancy looking, and well put together.
