Excerpt: For the ultimate in ambient noise-busting, look no further than the Parrot Zik, a seriously stylish pair of noise-cancelling headphones.

Check out what we made of them in the clip above.
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
9 July 2013
Excerpt: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Parrot Zik Review: King of All Wireless Headphones!
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”. Not only does it look sleek, stylish, and cool, it’s also packed with tons of innovative features. Everything from touch-based controls, advanced jawbone sensors, Bluetooth, NFC, and a noise-cancellation, the Zik has it all.
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.
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.
