Toronto, March 19, 2014 – Just wanted to give a huge thanks to Best Buy Canada for hooking me up with the coolest wireless headphones ever made. The Parrot Zik noise cancelling bluetooth headphones ($399) are a unique design collaboration between renowned designer/architect Philippe Starck & Parrot president Henri Seydoux.
It took four years to design and engineer these sleek touch control headphones. There is only one button that turns the headphones on/off, everything else is done by swiping your finger over the right ear and tapping. The fused intuitive control and amazing sound clarity has resulted in the world’s best wireless headphones. I’m not only won over by their incredible design, but the fact that the late Lou Reed himself tuned these himself is pretty incredible. Talk about a man who knew sound better than anyone. His video interview about tuning the Parrot Zik was actually his last and you really need to watch it.
