Excerpt: At one moment in time, I became fed up with slurry, echoing bass, chalk-on-board, breaking glass like treble, and almost nonexistent middle. I dreamed of crystal clear bass, mellow middle and smooth but yet twangy treble, and when I bought Starck Parrot Zik wireless headphones , my dreams finally came true. And although I had to shell out $400 to make this happen, it was totally worth it.
Pros: Great looks, controls on side of phones well designed
Cons: Plastic, all plastic, sound is poor for the price, a cord and $200 bucks will put these to shame. Battery life, this is the main reason I sent them back. Two different flights, less than 3 hours with a full charge.
Summary: Bring your iPad and iPhone to a new level with these ear cans. Wireless, touch control, noise cancellation, Blue Tooth, what more could you ask for.?..oh... and Great Sound. The free app is easy to use and spot on!
Pros: Wireless, noise cancellation, quality material, great sound!
Cons: These are not the headphones for jogging or moving about.
Summary: 3.5 stars for RX side noise reduction overall, five for low freq. As with most active NR the high freq noise reduction is not too great. I'd not use these on a flight line without more testing. Other "con" may be Bluetooth/Apple issue: dead spots or holes in audio occasionally, may also be related to the touchy "pause when removed" feature of the HS: when wearing these while mowing grass I can hear the mower, but all the low engine noise is gone, the higher freq stuff is...
