Zik - The World's Most Advanced Wireless Headphones

Parrot unveils its first wireless audio & telephony headphones, designed by the legendary French interior & product designer Philippe Patrick Starck, the Zik is packed with unique functions making it the most advanced wireless headphones to enter the market.

A cut above the rest with the most state-of-the-art technologies: highly performing active noise control, “spatialized” musical image, touch panel that enables sensual movements, head detection sensor, bone conduction sensor, five microphones and a powerful digital signal processor reinventing audio headphones for a never-before sensorial experience.

Seamlessly compatible with all devices iPhone, iPad, tablets, smartphones, PC, Mac, etc. with NFC technology for instant pairing. Crystal-clear conversation with two technologies for pinpointing the sound of your voice, two directional microphones (for high frequency) and an Osseous conductor sensor (for low frequency).

Sensing vibrations from the jawbone & merging it with voice signals making hands free telephony quick & easy. Active noise cancellation reducing 98% of ambient noise with 4 microphones located inside and outside each earpiece offering complete clarity while listening. Just one short press of the headset to accept a call and a longer press to refuse.

The intuitive touch panel directly on the headset facilitates smooth and simple music control with a touch sensitive panel on the ear cup and Intuitive gesture detection. No need to operate functions from your device. With the Automatic Head Detection simply remove the headphone & place it around your neck for the music to pause, whilst on a call it will automatically switch to your phone.

With the Concert Hall Effect (CHE) sound is coming from the front as if you were located in a concert hall. Traditionally with a standard headphone your right ear can only listen to sound from the right ear cup and similar with the left ear. The CHE effect is completely different bringing a more natural way of listening to your favourite tunes.

Taking your music anywhere has never been easier distributed in SA by SMAC, offering the perfect answer to hands free Bluetooth solutions. The Zik can be purchased online at at leading music and IT stores for R3999 or visit Parrot.
