Excerpt: I have owned and use multiple Parrot products for hands free phone in vehicle, the AR Drone and others all of which have been great. We were selected to receive a pair of Zik headphones at no charge to test. My wife and I have used the Parrot Zik for almost 2 months with our iPhone 5s and 5c, listening to music, audio books and Netflix/Apple TV in noisy urban environments and also at our rural cabin.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: Where to start: These headphones sound nothing short of amazing; it is like you are right there in the recording studio. As as bonus, Lou Reed has programmed them for rock music and he knows what he is doing. Change the setting to listen to them for concert music and you hear everything like being at the concert. My beef with most headphones is their comfort level: too heavy, too tight, too bulky, wires getting caught, controls inconvenient.
Pros: Beautiful Design, Comfortable, Compact, Easy to use, Elegant Controls, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
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 for the headphones. The rechargeable battery is removable and replaceable. Even though they are heavy, they are comfortable.
Pros: Wireless, Good Sound, Rechargable Battery, Active Noise-Cancelation, Touch Panel, Interesting Sound EQs
Excerpt: Excellent head phones with stylish design and very good fit. Quality od sound and ease of operation very good. Integration with e.g. Apple mobile equipment flawless. Only con is the lack of a sturdy carrying case to protect the headphone when travelling.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: These Bluetooth headphones are absolutely awesome! The overall design, quality, features and functionality have no equal on the market today. The sound quality is exquisite, noise cancellation excellent, ability to forward and reverse to next / previous song, control volume/mute, and the built in speakerphone functions by simply swiping or tapping the cover of the headphone is fantastic!
Pros: Fantastic design, very high quality, tremendous features and functionality. And everything works as advertised!!!
Cons: At this time I have no cons about this product.
Summary: If you are looking to use these with an iPhone, iPad, or Android device I would highly recommend these headphones.
Pros: These headphones are amazing! I have been waiting for a long time to buy a good pair of noise cancelling, bluetooth headphones. I discovered the Parrot Zik headphones and was amazed with the quality and the features built in to these headphones. Many of the features include Bluetooth gesture controls, rechargeable battery, battery life is decent, sound quality when powered, comfortable, solid build. The headphones can be used in many different modes passively (no powe...
Cons: These need to be used with smartphone or tablet running iOS or Android to get the best experience. They are not audiophile headphones but they are still very impressive. Also, you really need to read up on these because the user manual does not mention all the different modes these headphones can be used in. I was surprised that aptX was not included with the headphones but I guess that is fine for now since no iOS devices support aptX.
Summary: I have been trying different bluetooth headsets of late and just couldn't find the right one. I have the Bose QC15 which I use mostly when I travel. But I needed something wireless to watch/listen on my iPad or Mac. Then I tried to google "best bluetooth headset". The Parrot Zik was right there as No.1. Believe me, it's rightly the NUMBER ONE!!! The sound is superb, especially the "Tuned By Lou Reed" option. You can also play with the equalizer and create your own.
Pros: Touch technology, iOS app, multifunctionaity and more
