Drones may have put them on the map, but the folks at Parrot have proved time and time again that they can make a stellar pair of headphones as well. Now the brand is back in action with all new set of cans – the Parrot Zik 3 wireless headphones.
These headphones are still designed by the legendary Philippe Starck, and boast a leather stitched exterior that’s available in your choice of classic black, emerald green, ivory brown and candy-apple red. And while these things are stunning aesthetically, it’s not the real selling point here. These headphones are packed with a ton of technology from the noise canceling and wireless streaming to the ability to charge wirelessly via Qi. The Blueooth and NFC headphones feature a fully interactive surface on the right earpiece that allows the user to swipe for things like volume adjustment and track selection, while the headphones automatically pause when you take them off. There are also several different noise canceling modes, ensuring you can still hear slight ambient noises or cancel out the world completely if you so choose. You can also control all of the headphone settings through your Apple or Android smartwatch. Parrot will be releasing the headphones later this year with a price of $400. [Purchase]
