GOOD TO BE A PARROT HEAD

Sharon, Crutchfield
31 August 2013
  • Summary: I was a little reluctant to spend that kind of money just for the "pleasure" of listening to Music. However I was pleasantly surprised and very satisfied upon trying these. The noise cancelling aspect is amazing, virtually all sounds, even at very close range, are negated. These phones are very comfortable on my head. The controls are entirely located on the right side headpiece: volume, change the track, on/off...and when I take them off, the music stops/pauses.
  • Pros: Comfort, ease of Bluetooth connection, quality of sound, advantages added by the phone App (eg, equalizer and battery charge left), controls on headphone so all capabilities go with me wherever I go (as long as I have the phone within about 25', usually kept in my pocket).
  • Cons: NONE up to this point.

Fits the Bill (a pun, Parrot, Bill, get it?)

AJ, Crutchfield
27 May 2013
  • 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...
  • Pros: see above
  • Cons: see above

Very Nice Headphones

Lmwest, Crutchfield
7 April 2013
  • Summary: These are very nice headphones that sound incredible. The software app for them really allows you to customize them as you like. I do like the freedom of them being Bluetooth. That said, you don't have a tremendous range away from the source. The swipe controls are great and work very well.
  • Pros: Sound, flexibility due to app, functionality of controls, they fit very well and are not terribly heavy.
  • Cons: Battery life. As many others have said, the battery does not last well. I need to buy an extra battery to have on hand for longer trips.

Great headphones with some iannoyance

Timothy, Crutchfield
10 March 2013
  • Summary: Great sound, the build quality is top notch. Comfort is good but could have used a bit more ear room, and I have small ears. The tops of my ears would hurt after a couple of hours use. I did find the touch controls a bit to sensitive. When you go to adjust the phones on your head the headphones will pause the music/movie, I find this a constant irritant. You should be able to adjust the sensitivity to touch.
  • Pros: Build quality, coolness, sound, replaceable battery
  • Cons: Touch sensitivity, hiss with noise reduction on. No hard case for storage.

Cool Headphones

StevenB, Crutchfield
27 January 2013
  • Summary: I have been able to compare these to the Bose 15 which my wife has. The Parrot's have better sound, fuller, richer. The Bose have slightly better noise cancelling, and the Bose are much lighter, but the Parrots seem more durable and sturdier and just as comfortable as the Bose
  • Pros: Style, Bluetooth freedom/wireless, sound quality, control app
  • Cons: A little heavy, but not onjectionably so
