«- and +.
Less is more.
The positive side of human production always tends towards less, nature as well. The less material there is, the more human it becomes.
Do less to have more.
This is what the Zik 2.0 is about
Finer, rounder, more sensitive.
It comes close to us, until it becomes us, our sound and nothing else.»

Philippe Starck

  • - “Parrot Zik 2.0 review: still the world's most advanced headphones”
    - “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”
    - “better-looking, more comfortable to wear and even better at noise cancellation, to the point where it's arguably best in class. As a bonus, the cans come with more tuning options to entertain obsessed audiophiles”.
    - “you gotta admire Parrot for thinking out of the box”; “ You’ll probably agree that Parrot is the best thing out of France since Daft Punk”

    Engadget, Richard LAI
  • - “The Parrot Zik 2.0 Headphones Are Where Fantastic Sound Meets Impressive Noise Canceling Technology”
    - “The Zik 2.0s retail for $400, which is $100 more than a comparable Bose set. But the Zik 2.0s sound better and actually look good. I don’t have anything bad to say about the Zik 2.0s, in fact. Sure, they’re pricey, but they’re also fantastic. Got $400 to splurge on headphones? Buy the Zik 2.0s. You won’t be disappointed.”

    TechCrunch, Matt Burns
  • - “I'll just get this out of the way: the Zik 2.0 headphones—which are advertised as "the world's most advanced headphones"—are very impressive. The improved design is both handsome and understated.”
    - “I thought that I was going to hate the app. Why in the hell would I need yet another app to listen to my stupid disco beats? Why don't I just adjust everything in Spotify? I'll tell you why: because the Parrot app is so much better. And it's fun to use. For any quasi-audiophile, listening to your favorite music with the Parrot Zik 2.0 app is like playing a game.”

    Gizmodo, Adam Clarck Estes
  • - “With Zik 2.0, Parrot has leveled up the internal tech with a higher-grade DAC (digital-to-analog converter), which it says creates cleaner sound, as well as better noise cancelling and a new app that allows you to customize the way you want your music to sound with advanced EQ settings, in addition to adjusting how much noise-cancelling you want“

    Cnet, David Carnoy

New Parrot Concert Hall Effect

The headphones have a powerful digital sound processor (DSP). The Concert Hall effect externalises the music and reproduces the sound of a real stereo system.

The Parrot equaliser is a new, quick and intuitive way to equalise your music, enabling infinite possibilities.

Using the tags in your audio files, the Smart Audio Tuning system in the Parrot Zik 2.0 free application automatically selects the best presets for you. Parrot Zik 2.0 improves your musical experience.

If you want to create your own presets, the Parrot Zik 2.0 application enables you to control all the settings, including the Parrot Concert Hall effect.

Total listening comfort

Parrot offers a new noise control technology that is extremely effective, and adapts to your environment. Disturbing noise is eliminated, whether you are in the office or in public transport, for uncompromised listening comfort.

inside

Complete quiet

6 microphones analyse residual noise that disturb you when listening to music. These outside noises are then cancelled by opposing sound waves to create a calm environment.

inside

Street Mode

With Street Mode, remain connected to your environment while listening to your music. Zik 2.0 cancels the passive isolation effect of headphones, to recreate a realistic perception of the outside environment. When phoning, this mode enables optimal listening comfort: the occlusion effect disappears, for a natural perception of your own voice.
