The world's most advanced wireless headphones
Listening to music and being insulated from external noise are features that more and more Smartphone users are looking for. Parrot has designed the perfect solution to address these desires, introducing wireless headphones that act as an extension of your Smartphone.
ZIK, the Smartphone Generation Headset
Sensitive touch panel & head detection sensor
Like 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 caller's 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 headphones to put your music on hold. The Bluetooth connection is then automatically reconfigured so that your Smartphone operates independently again.
Optimum listening comfort while on the phone
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 analyses the vibrations of the jaw in order to detect only your words and remove any background noise.
Recreating the Musical Image
For a brand-new listening experience, Parrot has paid special attention to the audio output from ZIK. The headphone provides you with powerful DSP (Digital Sound Processor) algorithms which reconstructs the sound, giving you the impression that the music is coming from in front of you; this is the "Parrot Concert Hall" effect.
To configure the "Parrot Concert Hall" effect, just download the free Parrot Audio Suite app for iOS or Android.
Lastly, to insulate you from external noise, Parrot has developed an ultra-high performance active noise cancellation system which eliminates up to 98% of ambient noise. While traditional ANC audio headphones only use two microphones to analyse ambient noises, ZIK has 4 microphones located inside and outside each earpiece offering the user complete clarity whilst listening.
A Headset Revolution--Touch Control
Adjust the volume
Sliding your finger vertically on the touch sensitive control panel adjusts the volume of your music or the caller voice.
Sliding your finger horizontally on the touch sensitive control panel plays the next track or returns to the previous one.

Place your headphones on your head to start music playing.
Take/end/refuse a call

Switch dual call

Parrot ZIK by Starck: Technology
Touch Control panel
Parrot ZIK features an ultra-intuitive touch panel located on the right ear cup (1). When connected via Bluetooth, simply swipe up and down to increase and decrease the volume, and forward and back to conveniently skip tracks.
Active Noise Cancellation
ZIK has four microphones (2) making this patented Parrot technology one of the best in its class in ANC. ZIK provides up to 98% noise reduction, amazingly isolating from external sound.
The Parrot ZIK is specifically engineered for crystal-clear conversation. Equipped with two directional microphones and a jaw bone sensor (3), ZIK captures the vibration of the jaw bone and merges it with the sound of your voice for reliable calls.
Head detection sensor
Placed within the foam of the ear piece (4), it automatically detects when you are wearing the headphones and when they are removed. Taking ZIK off your ears automatically pauses the music so you'll never miss a beat.
Bluetooth simple pairing with NFC
Just touch your phone to the left ear cup (5) to pair effortlessly with NFC devices.
"Parrot Concert Hall" effect
ZIK recreates beautiful lifelike sound. Alter the acoustics and sound- space through the Parrot Apps.
Don't stop the music
The music never stops. When it comes time to charge the battery, the Zik can operate using the jack cable. The music never stops!
Parrot Audio Suite
Parrot Audio Suite is the free Android / iPhone / iPod remote application dedicated to the Parrot ZIK design by Starck. The application allows the end-user to easily configure and modify the products configuration and parameters through the iPhone/iPod/Smartphone user-interface, including:
Parrot Concert Hall effect
The Parrot Concert Hall audio effect allows you to simulate a musical scene. This effect can be activated and controlled using the Parrot Audio Suite application.
Active Noise Cancellation
The active noise cancellation can be switched on or off directly by using the switch in the ZIK menu.
This menu allows the user to know the current state of the ZIK's battery.
The Parametric EQ is a 7 bands equalizer. The user can choose from among the various presets (Flat, Pop, Club, Punchy, Deep, Crystal, User) to adjust the frequencies to the style of music you are listening to.
The software update screen displays the current ZIK name, and the current ZIK Product Software version.

If you look at these headphones as a complete package they are just good - I can't say they are excellent. The amount of features on these and importantly the way this combination has been executed is certainly exciting but it is in no way flawless. There are a few flaws/nuances that may frustrate some people and I will touch on these.
Design - It's going to come down to a matter of taste but these headphones do really stand out, not so much headphones and more earmuffs, especially when used wirelessly. There is clearly a use of premium materials here, the earcups have a great smooth rubberised texture and the headband is all metal and leather (faux leather maybe?). They really do look and feel lovely, but if you want a headphone that screams "look at what celeb brand I listen to" (ie Beats, House of Marley, 50 Cent, Ludacris.....) these won't be for you.
Fit - The earcups are beautifully cushioned (best cushioning I've felt on headphones) and just about large enough to encompass the whole ear and form a decent seal. The headband however doesn't hold the ear cups very secure; even if you nod/shake your head gently or bend down slowly to pick something up they will likely slip. Moreover if you're lying down with them on they have a tendency to slip off the back of your head. They certainly aren't designed for running around or any kind of activity but will suffice for day to day walking, commuting and so forth.Read more ›
Boy these didn't disappoint. The base is truly amazing with the noise cancellation very impressive. In terms of the Bluetooth function, I was dubious as to whether I wanted to head down this route with the thought of me losing connection throughout songs probably the most annoying thing I could think of. However, through months of continuous usage, this hasn't happened once! Yipee. And JUST IN CASE, they do supply a cord if you do prefer.
Once you've connected the headset to your phone (iPhone in my case) it advises you to download the free APP which allows you to determine the way you want the headphones to function i.e turning the noise cancellation on/off. The APP also notifies when a free update is required (VERY QUICK).
If all that wasn't enough, you then have the touch function. Stroking your finger in an upwards motion on the right side of the headset causes the music to increase in volume, and obviously the opposite will turn it down. Swiping forward, skips to the next song, and the reverse will play the previous. When you place the headphones around your neck, the music will automatically pause.
The headphones also enable you to use while talking on the phone with the touch functions applying to answer or ignore a call with the built in mic being fantastic.
ALSO... .in terms of looks, sleek, mature, with the black matt finish robust and cosmetically nice.
Worth the money, and I hope you enjoy them as much as my self. Thank you for your time.
Firstly the actual build quality on these headphones are amazing even apple would be impressed real good quality materials been used unlike the dre studios
Secondly the sound quality is awesome crystal clear on all types of music no distortion unlike the dre studios
Thirdly the noise cancelling is amazing you realise when you turn it off as the headphones work via a smartphone app unlike dre studios that just belief that distort loudness will compensate noise cancelling
Fourthly the range and Bluetooth interference is amazing on these can nearly walk around my whole gym without having my phone in my pocket and they never turn off when other Bluetooth devices are about unlike the dre studios
Only 2 downside is the dre studios battery life is slightly better than the ziks
And you have to buy the hardcase separate for £40 still in total £10 cheaper than the dre studios ziks costing £340 complete and dre studios costing £350 complete
Personally if your looking at wireless headphones like these or dr dre studios then obviously money's not a concern as they both are in £350 range
If you want to enjoy your music then it has to be the ziks all the way
But if your just a dr dre fan the no matter what i say you'll still buy the studios
This item oozes quality, feels great, has a very high nerd score and sounds really good.
