Listening to music and being insulated from external noise are features that more and more Smartphone users are looking for. Parrot has designed the perfect solution to address these desires, introducing wireless headphones that act as an extension of your Smartphone. Like your Smartphone, ZIK has integrated a sensitive touch panel, giving hyper-intuitive access to the various features available. For optimum listening comfort while on the phone, ZIK is equipped with two technologies for pinpointing the sound of your voice. Combined with the use of a double microphone, the bone detection sensor detects and analyzes the vibrations of the jaw in order to detect only your words and remove any background noise.
For a brand-new listening experience, Parrot has paid special attention to the audio output from ZIK. The headphone provides you with powerful DSP (Digital Sound Processor) algorithms which reconstruct the sound, giving you the impression that the music is coming from in front of you; this is the "Parrot Concert Hall" effect. Lastly, to insulate you from external noise, Parrot has developed an ultra-high performance active noise cancellation system which eliminates up to 98% of ambient noise. While traditional ANC audio headphones only use two microphones to analyze ambient noises, ZIK has 4 microphones located inside and outside each earpiece offering the user complete clarity while listening.
Parrot Audio Suite is the free Android / iPhone / iPod remote application dedicated to the Parrot ZIK design by Starck. The application allows the end-user to easily configure and modify the products configuration and parameters through the iPhone/iPod/Smartphone user-interface, including: Parrot Concert Hall effect, equalizer, Active Noise Cancellation, system, helpdesk, and battery level.
Sliding your finger vertically on the touch sensitive control panel adjusts the volume of your music or the caller voice. Sliding your finger horizontally on the touch sensitive control panel plays the next track or returns to the previous one.
The Parrot Concert Hall audio effect allows you to simulate a musical scene. This effect can be activated and controlled using the Parrot Audio Suite application. The Parametric EQ is a 7 bands equalizer. The user can choose from among the various presets (Flat, Pop, Club, Punchy, Deep, Crystal, User) to adjust the frequencies to the style of music you are listening to.
Remove your headphones to put your music on hold or press the right panel with your finger. Place your headphones on your head to start playing the music.
The active noise reduction can be switched on or off directly by using the switch in the ZIK menu. The battery level menu menu allows the user to know the current state of the ZIK's battery.
Tap on the right headphone to take or end a call, touch the panel for two seconds to reject it. Sliding your finger horizontally on the control panel allows you to switch between two calls.
The system software update screen displays the current ZIK name, and the current ZIK Product Software version. By clicking on the Helpdesk icon, the URL redirects the user to a dedicated page.
