More from Parrot:

At Parrot we’ve developed new headphones using ground- breaking technology to create a truly immersive sound. The Zik are designed around a powerful processor that spatializes sound and recreates the acoustics of a concert hall. Three months ago, I asked Lou Reed for his opinion. He told me that the headphones were well tuned for classical music but not for rock. And he told me he could help.

So on September 30th, 2013, I travelled to his studio in New York; it would be the last time I would see him. Working alongside his experienced sound engineer as well as Parrot Zik’s acoustic designers, Lou Reed used his personal mastering studio to program the Zik as if he were adjusting the balance for one of his own performances. You can now experience the extraordinary results by using a special control on the Parrot Audio Suite app for iPhone® or Android™. Thank you Lou.

Parrot ZIK is fitted with an ultra-intuitive touch control panel on the right headphone: when connected via Bluetooth, slide your finger vertically to adjust the volume and horizontally to skip to the next track.

Parrot has developed a complete movement recognition algorithm designed to be simple and intuitive for the user.
