I purchased these speakers from Amazon a few days ago. The sound is nothing less than spectacular. When I setup the speakers there is not a lot to do. Just plug each speaker into the electric outlet, touch the power button and you are ready to go. I tried playing from my ipod using the Bluetooth connection, but it sounded delayed, stopped and started over and over, I couldn't take it anymore, so I just set it in the dock on the speaker and it works and sounds like a champ. The remote control is simple enough use. The sound is soft, I hear more instruments and sounds in the music, I can't tell you why, but it is great. and you can feel the air move when the volume is high. Bottom line, I would buy these ipod speakers again without hesitation.

I was quite excited upon purchasing these great looking speakers as they go well with my modern decor. However, it wasn't long after receiving them, that I wished I hadn't been suckered by its beauty. The sound quality is what you would expect. It's not audiophile quality, but acceptable. However, what is disappointing is the quirky, buggy nature of the speakers.

After installing all the software updates, I was able to stream music from my Mac laptop to the speakers via Wi-Fi, but it was short lived. Every time I turned off the speakers and fired them back up, streaming music from my laptop via Wi-Fi would stop working. I've managed to get it functional again, but it was after performing a whole bunch of maneuvers, and I'm not sure which one specifically worked. I would unplug the speakers and plug them back in (there really should be a reset button), as the Wi-Fi button on the speakers would stop responding unless I did and upload all the software updates again....and then maybe it'll work.

Also once in a while, I wouldn't be able to turn on the speakers, either using the remote or the speaker's "On" button, and would have to unplug and plug the speakers back in.

But what's worse is the customer service which is non-existent. I have yet to get a response from them and it's been 2 months now.

If I'm going to pay that much for speakers, I expect it to work flawlessly and get better customer service if I have problems.

Don't buy these speakers. It's not worth the hassle!

Well well, i hesitated quite a bit before buying the Zikmu speakers (Zikmu stands for "Musique" in a twisted form). In fact i went to a local dealer and asked him if i could take them home for several days of testing before actually buying them. I was mostly interested in the wireless streaming features and of course the sound quality the speakers were providing.

The sound is not bad by any means, but it is not really top-quality either. For this price one would expect a more refined sound. Bass is quite powerful for the size, it is a bit flabby, but it makes music sound quite powerful and smooth. What really put me off was the treble which is pretty dull and undetailed out of the box. You can improve this with the built in EQ, but then treble can already start sounding a bit artificial. What's good is the broad sound dispersion. The speakers even emit to the rear and put up in the middle of the room, you really get a huge sound-stage without being limited to a narrow sweet-spot. I found placement to be really unproblematic. Putting them about half a meter from any wall enables them to fill a whole room with sound.

Wireless streaming possibilities are great. I didn't try bluetooth, as it compromises audio-quality. But streaming through Wifi should give you an uncompressed audio. After a bit of a hassle with the Wlan-router setup i finally got the speakers to work and was able to stream my music from the laptop directly to the speakers. You are not bound to Apple's Itunes or whatever like it's the case with Airplay. The Parrot Audio Suite works like a kind of audio-driver where you can choose if you want the internal speakers or the Zikmu to play your music.

Just bought zikmu and started playing with it for a few days. I've tried all the connections namely ipod, bluetooth and wifi and here's what I think.

The good: the product itself looks amazing and it feels great to have it in my room. It even appeared in the lady gaga bad romance MV! The design is typical minimalistic and phillipe starck and even the details such as the box and the packaging is top notch (they've even got a bag for the remote). At first I've got a few issues with changing the source of the input, from ipod to wifi via my computer to bluetooth...etc. But it won't take long to master it. The software it provided is quite user-friendly and convenient to use. The remote is great, I'm surprised I can use it with both speakers.

Now the not so good: I think the speakers got serious problems in wifi and bluetooth via the computer, the delay is ridiculous and I wouldn't use it to play movies/games with it. In addition, every time I powered it on, I need to manually re-connect it to my computer which quite troublesome. The sound quality is just mediocre, it's comparable to my other $150 harmon kardon soundstick II speaker (although it's pretty good already, you would expect more given the price)

The verdict: If you just want another piece of home decor item which looks good and also does play decent music and you've got some spare money, I would recommend buying it.
