The world's most advanced wireless headphones
Listening to music and being insulated from external noise are features that more and more Smartphone users are looking for. Parrot has designed the perfect solution to address these desires, introducing wireless headphones that act as an extension of your Smartphone.
ZIK, the Smartphone Generation Headset
Sensitive touch panel & head detection sensor
Like your Smartphone, ZIK has integrated a sensitive touch panel, giving hyper-intuitive access to the various features available. Sliding your finger vertically on the touch-sensitive control panel adjusts the volume of your music or the caller's voice, and moving your finger horizontally plays the next track or returns to the previous one. ZIK also has a unique head detection sensor: simply remove your headphones to put your music on hold. The Bluetooth connection is then automatically reconfigured so that your Smartphone operates independently again.
Optimum listening comfort while on the phone
For optimum listening comfort while on the phone, ZIK is equipped with two technologies for pinpointing the sound of your voice. Combined with the use of a double microphone, the bone detection sensor detects and analyses the vibrations of the jaw in order to detect only your words and remove any background noise.
Recreating the Musical Image
For a brand-new listening experience, Parrot has paid special attention to the audio output from ZIK. The headphone provides you with powerful DSP (Digital Sound Processor) algorithms which reconstructs the sound, giving you the impression that the music is coming from in front of you; this is the "Parrot Concert Hall" effect.
To configure the "Parrot Concert Hall" effect, just download the free Parrot Audio Suite app for iOS or Android.
Lastly, to insulate you from external noise, Parrot has developed an ultra-high performance active noise cancellation system which eliminates up to 98% of ambient noise. While traditional ANC audio headphones only use two microphones to analyse ambient noises, ZIK has 4 microphones located inside and outside each earpiece offering the user complete clarity whilst listening.

Parrot ZIK by Starck: Technology
Touch Control panel
Parrot ZIK features an ultra-intuitive touch panel located on the right ear cup (1). When connected via Bluetooth, simply swipe up and down to increase and decrease the volume, and forward and back to conveniently skip tracks.
Active Noise Cancellation
ZIK has four microphones (2) making this patented Parrot technology one of the best in its class in ANC. ZIK provides up to 98% noise reduction, amazingly isolating from external sound.
The Parrot ZIK is specifically engineered for crystal-clear conversation. Equipped with two directional microphones and a jaw bone sensor (3), ZIK captures the vibration of the jaw bone and merges it with the sound of your voice for reliable calls.
Head detection sensor
Placed within the foam of the ear piece (4), it automatically detects when you are wearing the headphones and when they are removed. Taking ZIK off your ears automatically pauses the music so you'll never miss a beat.
Bluetooth simple pairing with NFC
Just touch your phone to the left ear cup (5) to pair effortlessly with NFC devices.
