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).
Summary: The Ziks have a great sound for Bluetooth wireless headphones. They can be wired directly if Bluetooth is not available. They offer a many features, including an innovative capacitive touch-control for volume, active noise-cancellation, and an app for smartphones that acts as a virtual control panel...
Pros: Wireless, Good Sound, Rechargable Battery, Active Noise-Cancelation, Touch Panel, Interesting Sound EQs
Summary: TL;DR: I bought and returned a pair of Parrot Zik headphones. I liked the way they sounded. I didn't like that it's hard to charge them and that I always had to use the smartphone app to control them.
They sound better than the Nokia BT-905 headphones I've been using for years.
Pros: Decent sound
Cons: Fiddley. A smart phone app is the only way to control them. Charging via laptop USB is tricky.
Summary: I'll keep this short. As a pair of bluetooth on-ears without noise-cancelling turned on, they sound quite excellent and the ambient sound is noticeably lowered. The bass is certainly boosted, but not excessively so.
Pros: excellent noise isolation (even without NC on), outstanding and innovative control system, great sound (if a tad bass heavy)
Cons: not the lightest cans, for long journeys you'll need a spare battery (wired lead ruins sound), App is fun but doesn't really add much to experience
Summary: The Parrot Zik earns its place among the top 10 noise-cancelling headphones for sound quality, beautiful design and wireless capabilities. The Parrot Ziks might be a bit on the heavy side, but they sound so good you won’t want to take them off.
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.
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...
