Parrot Zik 2.0, the world’s most advanced headphones

To create the Parrot Zik 2.0, engineers collaborated with the French designer Philippe Starck to combine the best of audio and innovation into comfortable and trendy new headphones. Zik 2.0 are 17% lighter than the previous generation, the padded headband is thicker and more space is provided for your ears thanks to new ear cushions. Compatible with bluetooth enabled smartphones, tablets and computers: Parrot Zik 2.0 supports most audio codecs, especially AAC. Built-in NFC technology enables them to automatically connect via Bluetooth with NFC smartphones.

Smart-touch panel
Parrot developed a movement recognition algorithm designed to be more simple and intuitive for the user. Zik 2.0 has a head sensor in the ear cushion which automatically detects if you are wearing the headphones. As soon as you take off the Zik 2.0, the music stops! A tactile panel on the right ear cup allows you to control your music and hands-free calls.

Stunning sound 
To ensure music is heard in all its harmony and depth, Parrot Zik 2.0 audio playback offers full digital 32 bits audio processing. Frequency response is fully customisable with the 5 band pro-equaliser available on the free dedicated application Parrot Zik 2.0. The headset is equipped with powerful DSP (Digital Sound Processor) algorithms which reconstruct the sound giving you the impression that the music source is in front of you. Concert hall acoustics are recreated for harmonious and more natural sounds which also reduce fatigue.

The Parrot Equaliser is a new, intuitive and fast way to adjust the music you are listening to, as well as offering you infinite settings options. Using tags from your audio files, Smart Audio Tuning in the Parrot Zik 2.0 free app automatically selects the most appropriate Presets for you allowing the Parrot Zik 2.0 headphones to enhance your musical experience. If you want to create your own Presets, the Parrot Zik 2.0 app lets you take control of all parameters, including the Parrot Concert Hall effect.

Adaptive Noise Control 
Parrot offers a brand new and efficient active noise cancelling technology which adapts to your environment. Disturbing noises are eliminated whether you are at the office or in public transport for uncompromising listening comfort. 6 microphones analyse residual noises (low frequencies) that could disrupt listening. Outside noise is then cancelled by opposing sound waves (anti-noise) in order to create a calmer environment.

Audio Presets
Parrot Zik 2.0 are the only headphones offering the possibility to accurately customise the audio restitution. With the Producer mode, the Parrot Zik 2.0 "mastering" uses a 5 band full parametric equaliser with Parrot's proprietary spatialisation effect to recreate a real musical listening experience. You can also share your Presets with other Parrot Zik 2.0 users.

Parrot offers artists the possibility to define and share their settings in order to insure the perfect sound. Users can listen to music as heard by the artist. Follow your favourite artists through a dedicated page that features biographies and latest news about their work.
