The Parrot Zik headphones are designed especially for smartphone users and are one very cool technology.
The headphones have an NFC chip implemented, jawbone sensor and swipe touch controls.
A DSP effect named “The Concert Hall”, presence sensor and an active noise canceling, the Zik headphones are definitely innovative.
These are the first headphones that include an NFC chip, which allow users to tap an NFC-enabled smartphone against the headphones and pair them immediately.
Unfortunately, the NFC feature is still compatible with only two smartphones – Nokia N9 and the BlackBerry Curve.
Parrot Zik have confirmed that their software will be updated in the next few months to support other NFC-enabled smartphones, such as HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Samsung Galaxy S III, but they didn’t specify a time frame.
