I nearly bought bose quiet comforts after trying them in a shop but am very glad i got these. The only negative is the price but all noise cancelling headphones are expensive. I tried out a cheap pair of wireless headphones for a tenth of the price but the sound quality was terrible. With these, you are getting what you pay for. I was concerned because some reviews said the zik 2. 0’s were small but i’ve got a large ish head and elephant ears and comfort and fitting for me isn’t a problem at all. Maybe this issue has been resolved recently.

Bought new in december 2015 and working well so far. I’ll update this review if they go wrong. The noise cancellation is very impressive, it works very well. I find the headphones very comforatble to wear, even for hours.

I was lucky enough to get a set of these on a well known auction site for £51. 00 because i took a risk with an untested listing but the guy had 100% positive feedback?. Boy am i glad i did because this is the best decision on a set of premium headphones i have ever made. Don’t believe the reviews that say bass not good enough or they’re not loud because they’re wrong on both counts?. No matter what music i’ve listened too with these they’ve made it sound fantastic, bass is exactly how it should be, i listened to firth of fifth by genesis with the wonderful bass pedals on the live version and the vibrations of them was like i was there live at the concert, ythats just one example of the power you can get from the parrot zik 2s. The design of the headphones has that premium look and feel with the best materials used. I haven’t had the issue with the ear pad material coming apart either though obviously there seems to be an ongoing issue with this?. I hope parrot sort this out, but you need to remember that your buying these headphones for mainly the premium sound and they’re the best by a mile on this score. A slight disappointment with no carry case when purchasing new is a problem, but can be lived with when you hear how fantastic these sound?.

Lovely quality finish and feel. I managed to grab these headphones on amazon lightning deals, so this was a good price for top end bluetooth headphones. I have read about the original ziks, in that they have a huge amount of sound leak, and batter was poor. So i was hoping for a big change in these. When the headphones arrived, the packaging was good. A little cheap in my opinion. For something with a £300 rrp, i was hoping for a little more quality. Anyway, the headphones themselves, absolutely gorgeous. Very luxurious feel, soft leather ears, they fit around your ears (so these are over ear rather than on ear), so makes it a lot more comfortable for long use.

Parrot Zik 2.0 by Philippe Starck Wireless Headphones – Brown : Put off buying these due to bad reviews relating to connectivity and the fact that you need the app to turn on features. I took the plunge when the price dropped to £251 briefly. I have to say i’ve had no problems and the sound and noise cancelling is excellent. I have used the app to set them up and now listen to music through my ipod nano. Every time i switch on the headphones they automatically connect to the ipod and resume at the last played song, no need to faff with the app or even touch the ipod. Very comfortable to wear for long periods and i’ve never felt that the adjusters are going to snap, as per other reviews. I’ve bought the parrot case for them which is great but should be standard for such high end cans. All in all very impressed with the quality, quantum leap from my bluetooth sennheisers and at least as good as the bose qc25 but with bluetooth.

Superior product, if you have space in your bag. Until the headphone broke (common problem – the glue didn’t last after a year and foam came out). Parrot had better noise canceling and better sound quality (sorry bose). The only annoying thing about parrot – bit bulky – doesn’t fold like qc35 – allows me to take it anywhere/.

The sound quality on these is pretty good but for the price you can get better. The sound quality on these is pretty good but for the price you can get better sounding headphones. The feature set is nice though. You can change the level of noise cancelling or you can make it sound like you’re in a concert hall, theatre or other rooms which change the sounds. You can control volume, pause and play songs using gestures on the earcup, which is a nice touch but this can be activated by gently brushing the earcup if you’re not careful. On top of active noise cancelling these do have very good noise isolation too which can add to the immersion, the trade-off for this is the headphones are quite heavy if you planned on extended listening periods. The sensor on the earcup that automatically pauses your music when you take them off is a really nice touch and the earcups also fit my ears very comfortably. One of my biggest complaints having worn them is that they look weird when wearing them it’s probably the metal headband that twists round, it looks nice in the picture sure but on me not so much (but that is subjective and you might like it). For the price i would have liked to see a better quality carry case being included, a black drawstring bag isn’t what i would consider protective at all.

Great if you are not using these to watch video or tv. . I bought the zik 2 headphones, only to find that while they have very good noise-reduction, these headphones do not support the industry standard aptx at all. That standard is needed for good lip-sync when connected via bluetooth for watching video or a tv. Ideal would be to support aptx low latency, which should be standard for headphones of this quality and price. Parrot know this as it has often been commented on, yet they simply refuse to support aptx saying aac also provides good sound quality and have not implemented aptx on zik 3, either. Yes, the sound quality is good, but the latency is poor, which does not matter when listening to music, but matters a lot when watching video as lip-sync lags more than other headphones, do. 0 while current standards are v4. When trying to use the headphones on a pc, while also linked to a smartphone, the sound often cuts out as it is constantly switching to the smartphone (android in my tests) every time it makes a noise.

Great sound and app a little heavy and a sticks out a bit when you’re wearing in public.

I love these headphones so much. They are beautiful, comfortable, functional and definitely the best headphones i have ever owned. The accompanying app is brilliant and easy to use. There are so many surprise features that really make sense. Such as the way it stops the music when you push the headphones off one ear to hear an announcement or someone asking you something and then restarts the music when you put them back.

I really like these parrot 2’s but have had some issues. I really like these parrot 2’s but have had some issues. The ear cup pu leather came away from both ear cups and phones were replaced by seller without a problem, but as everyone has had this issue, i don’t doubt it will happen again and then it will be out of warranty. I feel this is a design flaw of the method of sticking the faux letter to the fabric rather than machine stitching it, and don’t really expect this to happen on this price of headphones. Sound quality is good but not amazing and is actually poor when listening at very low volume in bed with lots of synthesised sounds in the background, i mainly use these for audio books at night so this is irritating but bearable. Features are good, noise isolating works well so will look forward to using them on a flight.

Looks great, feels great, sounds great . Looks great, feels great, sounds great. Whether you are into classical music or enjoy the latest club bangers, you can customize your parrot zik how ever you like with the app. Compared to my beats studio, the zik gives a more natural sound and is not overly bass-y. I have yet to try it on a flight but noise cancelling works great in the office setting and also makes a big difference for the daily commute. However for the price, parrot should have included a hard carry case as, while the soft protective pouch would protect from scratches and dust, it is absolutely useless if you want to carry your zik in your bag.

Short term – best thing in the world, long term – with adventures but parrot will solve everything for you. When i bought those headphones i fall in love with them immediately- the sound is great, noise cancelling option really works, not mentioning about great look and ability to control the headphones on your right earphone or via app (highly recommend to download it). I was recommending them to everyone. It has been not even a year when i noticed issues with the headphones – the control panel on the earphone stopped working, the music was playing despite i put the headphones down (that device stops playing music, when you take it off from the head – another plus for me to buy them that time). Finally, the battery split apart (yes), the leather started tearing off everywhere, despite i keep the headphones in the pouch when i don’t use them. I can’t repair them, despite having them less than a year, because amazon offers only 1 month guarantee for them; i can’t repair them via parrot, as they send me back to the amazon. So, my advise – don’t buy if you want it for longer than a year and don’t buy them via amazon, as you won’t have a repair option or return after 1 month. Very disappointeda recent update of the situation (aug 2017)i managed to contact parrot via their website and i sent them my headphones to be fixed, despite i was out of warranty and purchased headphones via amazon. They have sent me a brand new pair, more than – a newer version from what i had.

Provided the wrong colour but after trying i was happy to keep as supplied. The seller provided the wrong colour but after trying i was happy to keep as supplied. The earphones are a little on the tight side for my larger male head but are comfortable enough on long train journeys. Connects easily and the controls being on an app is actually very useful. The controls on the right earphone are practical and the noise cancelling function is very good.
