The original Parrot Zik headphones were the long reigning champ of headphones in my book for almost 2 years, until now. The Zik 2.0 not only are improved but are even more gorgeous than it’s predecessor. They definitely deserve our Editors’ Choice Award, and are now the best pair of headphones I’ve ever tested under $400. They’re also the only reviewed headphones on our site to earn a perfect A+ score.

    Just received a pair of these. How do you control the features (as from the app) when you pair them with a laptop?… is there a way to do it?. If not, then, how do you turn the noise cancellation on/of, or an EQ setting, etc.? For that matter, how do you know what they are doing with regards to the config parameters?

    And the same question for playing music from an Apple Watch. It’d be very limiting if the only way to control options is when you’re playing from your phone or tablet!… huge oversight for this price tag.

      If I remember correctly, I think it saves that last audio options you selected when it was synced with your phone.
