Parrot crew is presenting a new music gadget, Zik Wireless headphones. Unlike the normal headphones, this new product has impressive features to deliver a cool music treat for the consumers. Apart from the interesting inbuilt features, the device has access to advance apps, as well. Bluetooth cans in this device will enable noise cancelling. NFC support is another key feature. The swipe gesture input adds to the audio quality and also the noise isolation capability.
This Parrot Zik Wireless headphone is powered by a swappable battery, and you can see that there is only a cell within this package offering up to 5 hours of music playback time. Consumers can get one more cell at the expense of around Rs.1500/-. The 3.5mm audio cable allows you to enjoy almost all the benefits without any battery usage. But users cannot have noise cancellation function or make phone calls without the battery.
With the complimentary app on iOS, Parrot Zik Wireless headphone users can experience various interesting options. Users can easily disable the noise cancellation feature at their interest. Users can try out several concert Hall effects and at the same time make use of an equaliser for more effects. There is downloading option of this app from iPhone and iPod touch devices.
One of the concerns raised about this Parrot Zik Wireless headphone is the unavailability of apt-X support for complementing Broadcom Bluetooth radio. Parrot crew has justifiable reasons to defend the same. The Bluetooth 2.1 with this product is good enough to maintain the same audio quality as from the source. The Zik's NFC-Bluetooth pairing doesn’t need any app, as well. Parrot crew has no plans for MeeGo app inclusion with the headphone for numerous reasons. The device is said to incorporate bone conduction technology just like we have seen in Jawbone Icon.
Parrot Zik Wireless headphones will be launched by August. Music fans can purchase this innovative product from Parrot at a price of around Rs.20,000/-.
