While some have said these aren't much of an upgrade from the 2.0, I beg to differ. They connect much faster to Bluetooth with Bluetooth 3 (yes, Bluetooth 4 should have been the version built in), and the power button is redesigned to make it less easy to turn them off while listening. I've only used them about an hour, but they seem a bit more comfortable than the previous model and the sound is as good if not better. Bass seems better defined as well as the mid-range. Highs are crisp as is common with the Zik headphones. I used the QI wireless charger (packaged as part of the bundle) and it did a great job, in much less time than wired charging on the 2.0. And the addition of USB Audio, to use them on a laptop is a nice addition as well. They're incredibly comfortable (so were the 2.0's) and the ability to control volume, answer a phone call and pause sound tracks via swipes on the right ear cup is terrific.
The seller Zorro Sounds, is an authorized dealer, which was important to me. They offered these with the wireless charger, plus an extra battery (a must have), since with all options in use via the Zik App, the battery doesn't last that long. Supposedly, the 3.0 gets about 7 hours continuous use, which is an upgrade. An extra battery means you can just swap out the battery and double the time very quickly.
All in all, having really enjoyed my Zik 2.0, I'm sure I'm going to be equally happy, if not more so, with the Zik 3.0.
Ps: The Zik's come with a fabric pouch, which to me isn't a great storage option. I also ordered the DNAPro case from Accessory House for $34.95, which is a truly great case. Pictures are attached
A soft cloth storage bag, an audio connection cable for connecting to a non-wireless device, a USB charging cable (an AC wall charger is NOT included) and a wireless USB charger which I have not tested out yet. I'm old school, so I charged my headphones using the USB charging cable connected to my cell phone wall charger. I have yet to try out the USB wireless charger but will get around to it soon. It should be interesting to see how that works.
Here are some tips that may be helpful setting these up for the first time:
The battery is located inside the left headphone. To access it you simply pull off the outside cover which is held in place magnetically. I love that feature. After charging the battery the next step is to pair up the headphones with your cell phone via Bluetooth. This was a snap with my Samsung Galaxy 7. All I had to do was to power on the headphones, get into Bluetooth setup on my phone, scan for devices and my phone recognized the headphones right away. I didn't even have to enter a code. After pairing up the headphones with your cell phone you will need to immediately download the app. In my case I found the app easily with Google Play Store and installed it with no problems. Please note the app will only work if both the phone and headphones are powered on and connected via Bluetooth. Be sure to watch my video. Important: After you've installed the app you'll need to touch the very top left side of the screen to get into your settings. You’ll need to enable "Text-to-speech for caller ID," and you'll be prompted to choose your language. After that I was prompted to install S Voice which is a Samsung app. At that point I had to turn Bluetooth off on my phone in order to complete the installation of S Voice. Keep in mind my setup was for a Samsung Galaxy 7 which means your setup could be different for your phone. After I installed S Voice I turned Bluetooth back on and my phone paired up with my headphones.
Making an outgoing and incoming call test:
I put on a song and pressed the outside of the right headphone gently for 2 seconds. The music stopped and I heard a chime. This is important. Immediately after you hear the chime, speak the command "call." If you don't do this immediately the app will time out. After you speak the command "call" you will get a reply something like "who do you want to call?" If you respond with the name of someone in your cell phone contacts the call will proceed. Again, playing with these touch controls is sort of finicky but becomes easier with time and practice. I called a friend of mine and told him I was testing my headphones out and it appeared all was clear and good on both sides of our conversation. After successfully making an outgoing call I asked my friend to call me back. To disconnect our conversation I simply pressed on the outside of the right speaker. When I did this my music re-appeared. Then my friend called me back. The music stopped and a voice notified me that I was receiving a call from Stan. I then pressed the outside of the right headphone to connect my call. Again everything worked well and our conversation was clear. You should be able to make calls and receive calls without laying your hands on your phone. You can make outgoing calls to anyone who is in your phone’s contacts. I’m not sure if you can issue a voice command to dial out a number that is not already in your contacts. That would be a useful feature if it is available. I’ve only owned these headphones for a few days and I’m sure there are features I’m not aware of at this time.
Now I suggest you listen to some music and play around with the controls. You control the volume, next track and previous track by swiping the outside of the headphones with your finger. This was awkward for me at first but became easier with some practice. Watch my video.
Regarding noise cancellation: In my opinion the best test is to use them on a flight, and I've not had the chance to do that. Inside my house I tested them near my furnace and it pretty much eliminated that noise. In a couple of months I'll be making a flight to Mexico and will give the noise cancellation a good test at that time. I've also purchased a pair of Bose QC35 and a pair of Sony 1000x noise canceling headphones. I'll be traveling with my 18-year old daughter and two of her friends. We'll carry all three brands with us to test on the flight and it should be interesting to see how we'll rate each one in comparison to the other. All three brands and models are very close together in the same price range.
Connecting wireless to a PC:
I own an HP Zbook laptop running Windows 10 and it was a snap to connect these headphones via Bluetooth. After connecting I did a test using Facebook Messenger and everything worked flawlessly. If connecting these headphones to a computer is important to you, I would suggest you research the compatibility in advance of buying these headphones.

- Received defective broken headphones
- 4 days of emailing to commence RMA process and received shipping label
- +4 Parrot Support chat interactions
- +16 days (after Parrot received my defective headphones) of waiting for new working headphones to be shipped to me (headphones have still not shipped from RMA)
- +30 days since ordered the headphones (headphones have still not shipped from RMA)
My girl friend bought me these headphones for my birthday. I opened them super excited to try them out. I installed all the updated apps, software, fully charged them before trying them, etc. But alas, I received a defective product. The left ear cup low ends kept making a buzzing sound, maybe a broken wire, or defective speaker, who knows.
Amazon wouldn't let me post my full story for some reason.
This is by far the worst user experience I have ever had. Beware.
