Parrot Zik

4 October 2014
  • Excerpt: For the ultimate in ambient noise-busting, look no further than the Parrot Zik, a seriously stylish pair of noise-cancelling headphones. Not only do they boast an 18 hour battery life and even a smartphone app for tinkering with the balance and EQ settings, they sport touch sensitive controls on the cups, so you don’t even need to reach into your pocket to change the volume or toggle tracks. Check out what we made of them in the clip above.

Parrot Zik by Starck Review

9 May 2014
  • Summary: We know that shelling out a few grand on a decent audio device is tough pill to swallow for most consumers, let alone spending Php21,000 for a fancy wireless headset. However, for those who can afford it, we feel that the Parrot Zik has all the right tools to justify its premium price tag.

Parrot Zik Bluetooth Headphones Review: A Glimpse Into The Future Of Wireless Headphones

Android Police
9 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And when it comes to copying, I have no doubt that the Parrot Ziks will be imitated, reimagined, and otherwise "inspire" a new generation of Bluetooth headphones in the coming years. Yes, they're different. The Ziks are also, to be blunt, an experimental product. They don't sit on your head very well, and they don't sound fantastic.

Parrot ZIK Touch-Activated Bluetooth Headphones Review

1 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The Parrot ZIK touch-activated Bluetooth headphones we're having a look at here will cost you a cool $399.99 USD from several different sources - Brookstone and the Apple Store carry these beasts and they'll be popping up elsewhere as well (sooner than later). Be sure to let us know if you end up taking a look (and a listen) at these phones in the future!

Expert Review

14 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The Parrot Ziks are some of the best noise reduction headphones we’ve reviewed. Not only are they well designed and easy on the eyes, they sound great too. The professional sound quality is extremely detailed even when listening to audiobooks.
  • Pros: The Parrot Ziks are wireless headphones, so you don’t have to worry about an annoying cord getting in your way.
  • Cons: They weigh 12.41 ounces, which is a lot of extra weight to add to your head.

27 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Review: Parrot Zik, the King of Wireless Headphones The Parrot Zik is the closest thing we have to a “smart headphone”.

Review: Parrot Zik Noise Cancelling Headphones

Sound & Vision Magazine
19 November 2012
  • Excerpt: I'm skeptical of any audio product with a fancy design. In my experience, the more trendy or attractive a product is, the worse the performance. Maybe this prejudice comes from a place of subconscious competition, given that I'm so trendy and attractive.

Review: Parrot Zik Headphones

3 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Today’s smartphones are loaded with sensors. Soon, your headphones will be too. These wireless, noise-canceling headphones from Parrot (yes, the same people who brought you the quad-copter you control with your iPhone ) are packed with multiple sensors: capacitive surfaces, different types of microphones and an NFC chip.
