(view larger). Parrot, along with world-renowned French designer Phillipe Starck, have collaborated once again to create Zik, headphones combining advanced technology and sleek design.
Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) Zik headphones feature four active microphones - two internal and two external - to make this patented Parrot technology one of the best in its class in ANC. The Zik provides up to 98% noise reduction, isolating external sound almost completely.
Innovative Interface Parrot Zik features an intuitive touch-sensitive panel, located on the right ear cup. When connected via Bluetooth, you can simply swipe up and down to increase and decrease volume, or forward and back to skip tracks.
A head detection sensor is discretely incorporated in the foam of the ear piece, allowing the Zik to automatically detect when you are wearing the headphones and when they are removed, pausing and restarting music or switching to a call.
Unique Listening Quality To recreate true-to-life sound, the Zik features a unique quality called the “Parrot Concert Hall” effect. This effect mimics the sound of a live concert, with the music seeming to come from directly in front of you, rather than from the sides, as with standard headsets. This innovative acoustic sound provides a more natural way of enjoying music.
Free Yourself from Wires Listen to music or make crystal-clear calls wirelessly with the Zik via Bluetooth. Choose whether to control your calls and music manually from your device, via voice recognition, through the earphone touch panel, or from Parrot’s Audio Suite App, available for iPhone and Android smartphones. Bluetooth streaming is available with all Bluetooth compatible devices. Parrot has also integrated NFC into the Zik headphones, allowing you to pair, connect, and play music from your NFC-compatible device with a simple tap to the Zik.
Parrot Hands-Free Calling The Parrot Zik is specifically engineered for crystal-clear conversations. Equipped with two directional microphones and a Jawbone Conductor, the Zik captures the vibration of the jawbone and merges it with the sound of your voice for clearer calls. With the embedded head detection sensor, if you receive a phone call while listening to music, you can simply remove your headphones and your call will be automatically switch to your smartphone.
Exclusive Downloadable App The Parrot Audio Suite is a unique downloadable app for your smartphone, allowing you to control your music wirelessly. Using the Parrot Audio Suite, you can adjust your audio settings to customize the sound or simulate a virtual music scene to create your desired sound depth.
