What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Parrot Zik Wireless Active Noise Cancellation Headphones - Classic
  • Like Bose, they fit over your ears and don't sit on them cutting off the blood supply like so many others and the sound quality is incredible.
  • Build quality seems pretty high, even down to the charge cable which is encompassed in a material casing to make his much more durable and hard wearing.
  • No doubt about it - these are an excellent pair of headphones. Beautiful design too - easily the most beautiful pair of headphones I've ever seen.
  • Built quality is superb, nice materials and soft touch.
  • They look pretty good too. At first i thought they may look 'blocky' but nope i am well happy.

What customers say about "Features"
Parrot Zik Wireless Active Noise Cancellation Headphones - Classic
  • Noise cancelling is amazing, i had Bose before these and they are just as good - almost too good.
  • "Quality of the music is great. The capacitive touch controls are cool although you look a bit odd when doing it "
  • Picked up and paired with the iPhone 5S very quickly and remains paired very well.
  • The noise cancelling works very well. Call quality is excellent, the best of any of my suitably equipped headphones.
  • The concert hall and tuned by Lou Reed features certainly make a difference to the sound.
Parrot Zik 3
  • These headphones were exactly what I wanted in terms of sound quality, noise cancelling and wireless comms.
  • I use them while travelling on aircraft and they cut out a significant amount of engine noise.
  • I am by no means fanatical about audio but can confirm they really sound excellent.
  • The noise cancelling is very good. They almost completely eliminate train hum.
  • The sound quality and noise cancelling are amazing. Hands down the best headphones I've ever head.

What customers say about "Power"
Parrot Zik Wireless Active Noise Cancellation Headphones - Classic
  • No idea about battery life yet but as long as they can do 5-6 hours i will be happy.
  • Battery life is Ok for Ferry trips but might run out on a transatlantic flight.
  • Battery life is ok, can squeeze out around 3.5 hours with all features on. Although the battery can't be externally charged can just plug the USB cable into an apple charger and charge it from there.
  • If the battery dies, have no fear, the supplied audio cable will enable you to continue your audio experience until you're able to charge up.
  • The battery life is pretty good. I've found that I need to charge every other day, so I guess I'm getting around 7-8 hours use per charge.
  • The one problem is that the battery life isn't great. nothing that can't be fixed by charging them once a night.
Parrot Zik 3
  • Typical battery life is around 6 hours. I purchased a second genuine battery to get me though the day when travelling.
  • I have just got the zik headphones so can't comment much about the battery life but 6 - 7 hours of battery time is good enough for me.
  • If you really need more than you can always get a spare battery since it’s removable, or use them in airplane mode.
  • Unfortunately where this headphone fails is on battery life which is huge for me, as you can expect 4-5 hours if you're lucky, just not good enough
