Parrot Zik 2.0 review

 

App-powered Bluetooth headphones with features and more features

Bold design ; Expansive soundstage ; Deep customization via app

Slight comfort issues ; Expensive ; Iffy battery

Parrot's attempt at stirring up the stale headphone market is a success. The vibrant style, reliable functionality of both hardware and software and stellar sound performance make up for the steep price.

Parrot Zik 2.0 review: A wireless headphone for hardcore tech fans

 

Parrot's second-generation Zik is impressively engineered, with features up the wazoo. While it may wow some people, others might find it intimidating.

The Parrot Zik 2.0 Bluetooth headphone is lighter and more comfortable than the original Zik, it has a slick, eye-catching design and excellent build quality, plus a wealth of features, including wireless audio streaming, effective noise-cancellation,...

Battery life is mediocre; despite its high price, only a basic cloth carrying case is included; companion app is a bit buggy.

Sporting impressive design and solid sound, Parrot's feature-packed and pricey Zik 2.0 wireless headphones will wow some users but intimidate others.

Parrot Zik 2.0: Beautiful noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones [REVIEW]

 

The Parrot Zik 2.0 are terrific noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones with a unique touch-activated panel on its right ear cup.

Great noise-cancelling ; Innovative touch control ; Highly customizable app ; Beautiful hardware

Middling battery life ; App required to get full sound effect ; Lofty price

The Zik 2.0 sound and look great for a pair of Bluetooth headphones, all while embracing some innovative features. But their $400 price tag will turn off a lot of consumers looking for an alternative to the world of Bose.

Parrot Zik 2.0 review: Striking looks, lots of smarts & stunning sound

 

If there was ever a pair of headphones that could be used for everything, it would have to be the second generation Zik 2.0 from Parrot.

Excellent sound ; Noise cancelling ; Automatically stop-starts tracks when taken off ; Tactile controls for volume and tracks ; Hands-free voice calls in high definition ; Striking design

Carry Case is a satchel ; Pricey at $499.95

Parrot Zik 2.0 review: still the world's most advanced headphones

 

The Parrot Zik 2.0 is almost perfect with its reduced weight, refined design and new app features, but its call quality could use work.

Impressive noise reduction ; Intuitive gesture-based control ; Great audio playback quality

Touchpad not as sensitive as before ; Charging takes 2.5 hours ; Still not ideal for voice calls

Parrot is so close to making the perfect Bluetooth headphones. Well, they pretty much are if you ignore the voice-calling feature and just use them for music. Put it this way: The original Zik remained the most advanced Bluetooth headphones for two...

Parrot Zik 2.0 Black

 

Parrot redesigned the headphone from "the ground up to address users' feedback," and the most immediate difference you'll notice is a weight loss. Thanks to a move from iron to aluminum and some other design alterations, the headphone is now about 17...

Review: Zik 2.0 Parrot

 

The sensor-packed Parrot Zik 2.0 headphones are a tinkerer's dream. These Bluetooth noise-cancelling cans let you sculpt sounds and control your device.

Sensor magic! Music pauses when you put them around your neck and starts back up when you put them on your ears. Tap and swipe the earcup to navigate your jams. Excellent noise-cancellation and open-back simulation modes. Mobile app lets you adjust...

Need to be connected via Bluetooth to get the best audio. It’s easy to accidentally skip tracks or pause the music when adjusting the fit. Your ears feel the pressure during long listening sessions

Parrot Zik 2.0 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones Review

 

The Parrot Zik has been touted as the most technologically-advanced wireless headphones on the market. A recent redesign brings many improvements to an already impressive piece of hardware.

Excellent sound quality over Bluetooth ; User-friendly customization of effects ; Good call quality ; Outstanding customer service ; More comfortable than previous version

Lackluster sound quality in passive wired mode ; Competitive products are more affordable ; Difficult to wear for long periods without eventual discomfort ; Saving user presets requires Internet access and creating an account ; Impossible to create or...
