The new Zik is designed of the famous French designer Philippe Starck, which also designed the previous version. This new version comes in 6 different fashion colors. The design was combined with user feedback from the earlier version; Parrot was listening to its users for some of the changes. The material is also changed from some kind of iron to aluminum, which makes the headphones quite a bit lighter, and makes the comfort much better. They have also changed the plastic on the outside, to leather.

Now the Parrot Zik also pauses the music when taking the headphones away from your ears, and hangs them on your neck etc.

Compared to other brands, Parrot Zik also comes with an EQ App, which makes it possible to tune in the sound exactly as you would want – you can even download presets from various artists, so you can listen to their music just the way they intended.
As for the noice cancelling, there is also the possibility to adjust that to, whether it is letting ambient noise into your headphones, or to block out noise when going on an airplane ride.
