Parrot Zik 3.0

 

The Parrot Zik 3.0 are wireless noise-cancelling headphones packed with enough tech to make the Bose QuietComfort 35 look like the equivalent of a horse and cart.

The Parrot Zik 3.0 are feature-packed wireless headphones offering solid sound – but comfort is an issue.

Parrot Zik 3.0 review

 

Zik as a parrot? Not quite, but the sound doesn't match the innovative app...

Attractive, solid build ; Effective noise cancelling ; Added app functionality ; Balanced, upfront sound

Lack dynamics ; Bass needs greater depth ; Rivals more insightful ; Need better battery life

Sadly for Parrot, fruitful features can’t make up for so-so sound

Parrot Zik 3: High-class, high-tech, high-priced Bluetooth headphones [REVIEW]

 

Parrot's Zik 3 are respectable Bluetooth headphones packed with impressive sound quality and capable noise-cancellation.

Exceptional sound quality ; Versatile presets, and customization using the mobile app ; Completely wireless, from charging to playback

$400 price tag ; No protective carrying case

The Parrot Zik 3 Bluetooth headphones are a respectable upgrade from the likes of Bose or Beats. Parrot packed in impressive sound quality, with capable noise cancellation, but at a steep $400 price.

Parrot Zik 3 review

 

Bursting with bells and whistles, the Parrot Zik 3 are the most advanced headphones you can buy.

Parrot’s new Zik 3 offer an embarrassing wealth of high-tech features, a sleek and comfy design, and world-class noise cancellation that makes them a top option in the high-end wireless headphone segment. While the highly-affected sound signature isn’t...

Parrot Zik 3.0 (Black Leather-grain)

 

The biggest changes on the outside are the new colors and textures, including "croco" and "overstitched" effects. Also, for those of you with big heads, the headband has been enlarged in an effort to improve comfort. And while this headphone isn't...

The Parrot Zik 3 Bluetooth headphone has a slick, eye-catching design and excellent build quality, plus a wealth of features, including wireless audio streaming, effective noise-cancellation, and touch-sensitive controls on the right earpiece. Also,...

Battery life has improved from previous model but still isn't great; despite its high price, only a basic cloth carrying case is included.

Parrot has made some small but significant upgrades to its Zik 3 headphone, making it one of the best wireless headphones with active noise-cancellation.

Parrot Zik 3.0 review: The most high-tech, feature-packed wireless headphone you can get

 

Parrot's Zik 3 Bluetooth headphone looks a lot like the Zik 2 but has been improved in some significant ways. This new model, which also features active noise cancellation and is probably the most high-tech, feature-packed headphone you can get, costs...

Parrot Zik 3 review: Incredible sound, great features

 

If you like music, there are loads of options available from bargain priced headphones all the way up to the ridiculously expensive. The Parrot Zik 3 headphones sit somewhere in the middle of those two extremes. In this Parrot Zik 3 review I'll talk...

Amazing sound, incredible noise cancelling, excellent design, and great features

Battery life could be better, though charging is fast, and spare batteries are available so it isn't a huge issue. It might be nice to have a more substantial case rather than a cloth sack, but that's also not a huge deal

If you're looking for a great pair of headphones in the mid-high price range, the Parrot Zik 3 have the sound and features that make them a Techaeris Top Pick.

Parrot Zik 3 Review

 

One of the more memorable, better performing wireless headphones we've used in the last year has been the Parrot Zik 2.0. At a whopping $400 when it was first released, you kind of expect nothing except top-notch performance, given the hefty price tag...

Ability to customize its tuning ; One of the best noise-cancelling features ; Incredible audio performance ; Filled with an abundant set of features

Shorter battery life than other models ; Tough sell at $399.99

A shocker for some (not us), the Zik 3 is perched at the top of Parrot’s portfolio with a $399.99 MSRP – replacing the Zik 2, which is now at a more forgiving $199.99 cost. Certainly, many people will be turned away outright by this expensive...

Consumer review by: Jjohansson83 (cnet.com)

Good for mac users, bad for windows users.

 

I was happy with these until I changed from a macbook to a windows laptop. On mac, all is good. On windows, you have a tonne of functions, but can't use any of them. Connecting and disconnecting them creates problems in which I have to restart both...

Lightweight, durable, ok sound quality

A bit too expensive for what you get, no support for any windows devices.
