- What's Included
Parrot's PAIPF560101 Bluetooth Headphones are engineered to the highest musical audio standards with the late Rock artist, Lou Reed's, direct involvement in product development, style, and sound to ensure you're getting the best quality audio experience. Unlike standard Bluetooth headphones, the Zik is feature packed to ease your audio experience with a non-button touch and tap controlled capacitive surface on the right earcup, microphones for Active Noise Control (ANC), Near Field Communication (NFC) pairing, and a free Parrot Audio Suite app to customize settings and music listening options to match personal musical preferences. These headphones have professionally tuned 40mm custom drivers to offer the best studio sound possible whether you're streaming wirelessly, or connected via the 3.5mm cord.
What makes the biggest impression are the touch and tap controls and five microphones for ANC and phone calls. Rather than fumble and feel for MP3 player controls, you'll be able to control music using touch gestures: swipe a finger up and down to adjust volume, or side-to-side to move back and forth between songs. Tapping on the earcup pauses the music, and another starts it back up; the tap-control feature can also be used to answer or end phone calls. The Zik also features one microphone located inside and outside each earcup (four microphones in total) to support ANC and passive noise cancelling to eliminate external and ambient sounds (up to 98%); and a fifth microphone is included to speak on the phone. These headphones take ANC technology further during phone calls since the microphone detects jaw vibration to interpret what's your voice and what's not when talking. A built-in accelerometer helps to detect headphone positioning: take them off and the music stops automatically; put them back on and the music starts up again.
The free Parrot Audio Suite app (iOS and Android compatible) gives you three toggle and utility-based options to customize your personal preferences. The utility options include system, battery, and help desk icons; and the toggle options include ANC activation, a seven-band equalizer, and a Concert Hall Effects setup. The seven-band equalizer provides music presets to suit the audio you're listening to such as Flat, Pop, Club, Punchy, Deep, Crystal, and User settings on frequency ranges between 60Hz to 15KHz to match desired highs and lows. The concert hall effects let you personalize the soundstage to simulate four different rooms (Concert Hall, Jazz Club, Living Room, Silent Room), and speaker placements from 30° to 180° from left to right. Of course, your preferences are sure to vary, but these options are a key way to personalize sound to your own tastes whether you like gobs of bass, more vocal clarity, or specific spacing between audio outputs.
