Engadget Review

Parrot Zik by Starck review: Is $400 worth it for the fanciest, techiest headphones around?

The Zik generally performs well, but various kinks make it fall short of the $400 asking price.

Pros
  • Breathtaking, comfortable design
  • Active noise cancellation and passive noise isolation
  • Intuitive mobile app and onboard controls
Cons
  • Short battery life, proprietary battery
  • Slightly erratic Bluetooth performance
  • Sound quality is pleasing, but could be better
