Parrot have used CES 2012 to launch their new Starck-designed Zik headphones, jammed full of cutting edge NFC features and audio processing technology.
Touch activated, the headphones have a touch panel that lets you swipe to control volume levels and skip tracks. Connecting wirelessly to you music player over Bluetooth, they feature noise-cancellation and DSP (Digital Signal Processing) tech that gives what the Parrot team are calling the “Parrot Concert Hall” effect, making your music seem as if it is being played in front of you. There’s also noise-cancelling features in there too.
Hooking up to an NFC enabled phone is simple too thanks to the built-in tech. Merely let the headphone and NFC device touch each other and both gadgets will be paired, doing away with tiresome Bluetooth syncing if you have the means.
