Parrot ZIK Over-the-ear Bluetooth Headphones
Touch Controls / Near Field Communication Technology / Active Noise Cancellation / Hands-free Calling / 10Hz to 20,000Hz Frequency Response
The Parrot Zik Bluetooth Headset offers a unique design blended with advanced technology. It's a wireless Headphone that realizes that smartphones and tablets aren't just for communicating. They're for listening to Music and viewing Surround Sound videos. Designed by Philippe Starck, the ZIK Headphones Upgrades the performance you expect from outstanding headphones while incorporating the finest Bluetooth technologies for absolute wireless comfort.
Equipped with an active noise cancelling system, it insulates you from surrounding noise in order to guarantee the purest sound experience, whether listening to music or making phone calls.
Because music must be heard in all its harmony, intensity and depth, ZIK has powerful DSP (Digital Signal Processing) algorithms that recreate the contours of the music in full. This is the "Parrot Concert Hall" effect: the music is in front of you, like at a concert!
Access to basic functions is hyper-intuitive, thanks to a touch panel located on the entire surface of the ZIK's right earpiece. Swipe the panel vertically to set the volume, or swipe it horizontally to skip music forward/rewind.
ZIK also has a unique presence-sensor system. Removing the headset puts it into standby mode automatically. ZIK is compatible with all Mobile phone brands and accepts a large number of music sources: connecting via a cable jack; transferring Audio files using Bluetooth A2DP Stereo or using contactless NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, which has never been achieved before on a headset.
As far as Near Field Communication goes, Parrot's added this as a quick and painless way to pair to the headset with phones that support it. A User will simply tap their device on the left earcup to connect the headset, very similar to what we've seen some Nokia devices. The right earcup houses the Ziks touch sensor. By swiping forward and backward we're able to move through our playlist, while sliding our finger up and down allowed us to the control the volume. Added with the awareness of its presence sensor for pausing and playing, it made for a very intuitive way to control thing, however, we do wish there was a way to pause and play from the touch-panel itself, rather than having to do it from the device or take the headphones off.
40mm Drivers deliver astounding, wide range sound from deep lows to very definitive highs. ZIK by Parrot exemplifies how Bluetooth, great sound, and comfort can mesh and produce a headphone that clearly define what others will aspire.
