What do you expect from a high quality wireless headphone system? Parrot Zik Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones with Touch Control is absolutely a worthy buy due to various reasons. Continue reading to find more interesting facts about this highly sophisticated audio device.
Its out-of-this-world design is an absolutely killer. Ultra-comfortable luxurious ear cushions, sculpted metal and swiveling armatures attribute to the elite look and feel of the Parrot Zik headphones system. This design is purely a work of art rather than being a techno-type. This difference brings this product a special attraction compared with other headphones in the market. It is THE epitome of “COOL“!
You never know for how long you are going to wear headphones once you sit in front of the TV or computer. You might listen to a few songs or watch a two hour movie. Or maybe, watch a couple of movies or play games all day long. A constant complaint that comes from most headphone users is the discomfort their headphones bring after using it for a few hours. This feeling of discomfort ranges from nausea to unbearable headache. But Parrot Zik Wireless Headphone users will not make such complaints as these headphones are especially made for longer uses. This headphone system is really comfortable to wear and it makes your ears steamy in warmer weather. The only problem is the tad on the heavy side (0.72 lb weight).
This particular headphone system is very sophisticated both externally and internally. It comes with an array of options to give you an unmatchable audio experience which you cannot gain from another type of headphone available in the market.
Doubtlessly, this is one of the best audio devicesParrot has ever released. The sound quality is unparalleled. With effective noise cancellation mechanism, this headset will allow you to experience your music with a whole new level.
You can use this headphone system as either wireless or wired. It comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack that allows you to use it as a wired unit. However, connecting a wire does not specifically improve the quality of sound. A Micro-USB port is available on the bottom of the right earpiece which you can use to recharge the headphone with the Micro-USB cable provided.
One very specific feature of this wireless headphone for TV is its jawbone conductor sensor built in the padded earcup, which is able to detect when you are talking. State-of-the-art technology integrated in Parrot Zik Wireless headphones can effectively cancel noise and filter out background noise while you are talking. Four microphones, two internally and two externally, are used in this process of noise cancellation.
Another very significant feature of this wireless headphone for TV is its in-built motion sensor which can detect when you remove the headphone from your ears. It automatically pause the music instantly. It works like a charm.
Touch control on this special headphone works smoothly making it very convenient for use on the go. The power button is the only button on the headphone system which does all the work including turning on/off, volume controlling, call answer/end, skip track forward/back and pause/play. Controlling is really effortless with simple touches and swipes. Touch for pause/play, swipe up and down to control volume, left and right to change the track back and forth. The only small issue with this touch system is its high sensitivity. For an example, if you touch the headphones to adjust it on your head, you might accidently touch the control area and change the track. But once you are well acquainted with this ultra-sensitive control panel, you will find it no more an issue to work with it.
This cutting-edge wireless headphone system comes with NFC (Near Field Communication) which enables you to easily connect it to a smart phone. Make sure you have a modern smart phone with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS running on it to enjoy this feature. Touch the two devices ones to pair and twice to unpair. Simple as that.
Parrot Zik is perfect for frequent travellers. Once charged, it will work for hours. Built in batteries may sound like a disadvantageous as you cannot replace the batteries once they are drained. But Parrot Zik comes with a battery with enough capacity to solve it. For extended uses, you may buy an extra battery.
One major drawback of this headphone system is the carrying case provided with it. It is too soft and does not cut with the high quality headset. But this only matters if you are a frequent traveller. For domestic use, this cover is not too bad.
