Parrot Zikmu speakers review

Parrot Zikmu by Starck Review

Parrot Zikmu

 

Parrot puts a premium on design with the head-turning Zikmu, but do these monolithic speakers live up to their reputation, or are they just overpriced iPod docks for the vain iPhone user?

Connectivity over Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and direct connections; One-of-a-kind design; Very simple to set up and use

High asking price; No optical input; lacking bass for such a pricey unit
