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 review: Incredible sound, great features

 

In this Parrot Zik 3 review I'll talk about what makes the third iteration of Zik's worth your time and money, and why they are a Techaeris Top Pick.

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.

The Parrot Zik 3 headphones have a lot going for them. If you’re in the market for a pair of good headphones in the $300-$400 neighborhood, the Zik 3’s are a pair of headphones you should really check out. These headphones have definitely earned their...

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...

Parrot Zik 3 Headphones

 

While the Zik 3 has allure with fun features, it falls short on core functionality, especially against its price competition.

Excellent ANC; Decent Bluetooth sound (with ANC off); Wireless charging

Inconsistent sound quality; App mandatory for major functions

Parrot Zik 3 Review

 

In our noise-cancelling headphones review, the Parrot Zik 3 just didn't perform as well as other headphones. It's still one of the most stylish, well-designed pairs out there, but comfort and noise cancelling are rather compromised.

An on-off sensor on the ear cup automatically pauses your music when you take the headphones off, which saves a lot of battery life.

These headphones do very little to block noise, and the ear cup design doesn’t lend itself well to sealing out noise either.

The Parrot Zik used to be cutting-edge Bluetooth headphones, but its basic design hasn’t kept up the pace with other leading brands. However, these headphones are still beautiful and connect via Bluetooth very easily.

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
