3.0 out of 5 stars could be so much better, 13 April 2013

This review is from: Parrot Zik by Philippe Starck Wireless Headphones - Black/Silver (Electronics)
Early days with these headphones so maybe they will grow on me but, sound quality is after much playing with equaliser acceptable not wow or amazing cannot understand after all the technology they have thrown into these headphones why bluetooth 3 or apt x codec not there. Comfortable enough but on warm day will be unwearable and forget any sports active use. Noise cancelling a misnomer noise muffling better description. Touch controls work well but only if your not wearing coats scarfs etc. Battery life is abysmal so will have to buy extra battery another £35 , 5 hours tops with ans and concert hall effect which you need for half decent sound. Yes they look very smart and are quality product but not for day to day use even walking produces extra bass track you dont need. Have a couple of pairs of jaybird which quarter of price decent sound bombproof and wear anywhere. Saying that bought from amazon warehouse for £196 and honestly if had paid more would be sending back, but interesting gadget looks good decent but not wow sound so just about worth price I paid . Lets hope parrot upgrade and make half decent product into great product fingers crossed. Just found interesting point using these wired with supplied cable sound quility is sub par however had gold plated cable spare, plugged in and just found how good these headphones can sound, beautiful crisp clear sound amazing transformation

I cannot understand any of the snippy comments made as regards these excellent headphones. I have had mine a year and they give me all, (and plus), anyone with 'good ears' needs. It is a given that recording and therefore reproduction values vary and the EQ app allows the user to compensate. The noise cancelling actually really works (which is a first) and these are super comfortable for longer wear. The build is good as well. So temper any of the faintly negative remarks, as with any left on message board, as only a variable guide and very picky. Mine are still giving me the same pleasure and worth the expense!
