Parrot Zik by Starck Review

YugaTech
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.

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.

SlashGear
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: 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. Likes 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.
