Good technology, but overall not as good as BOSE QC range,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Parrot Zik by Philippe Starck Wireless Headphones - Black/Silver (Electronics)
Bought these for use around the house, commuting on the train to work, on planes. I currently have a pair of Bose QC3's.
Bluetooth works well with my iPhone 5
Good downloadable Parrot App to adjust EQ
Touch sensitive ear pad works very well to increase volume and shift tracks
Sound quality is good, bass not too intense
Battery life is terrible - 4 to 5 hours. USB charging only.
No case - easily bashed about in your bag
Heavy on the ears after a few hours wearing
Sound not contained within earphones, you risk seriously annoying your fellow commuters on the train or bus
The in-built microphones didn't work particularly well, very echoey and I couldn't use on conference calls
The design is too chunky
Overall - the wireless technology is great, but this product is let down by the overall thinking about the consumer experience. No case and poor battery life is inexcusable at this price. I've sent mine back.
