Parrot Zik 2.0 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones Conclusion

By Steve Church

These headphones have a wonderful sound with the DSP enabled.  Their forte is in their features, but quite a bit of attention has been paid to sound quality via software.  Overall, the Parrot Zik 2.0 is very much worth an audition for Bluetooth listening from a smartphone or tablet if the app is compatible with your device.  For any other purpose, especially for wired listening, you probably want something else.  If you’re looking to satisfy your audiophilia, better sounding headphones can be found for less money.  If you’re looking to satisfy your audiophilia without wires, you should definitely give the Zik 2.0 a try.  For my purposes, I am extremely pleased with my purchase.
