Parrot has teamed up with renowned French product designer Phillippe Starck to create a set of wireless Bluetooth headphones with touch-activated panels. The ZIK headset is described as the perfect companion for music-lovers as it can be easily connected to a smartphone via built-in NFC technology and Bluetooth pairing. Users can instantly play music by tapping their phone directly on the headset.

Using simple finger gestures, users can control the volume by swiping up or down on the earphones or change tracks by swiping left or right. Motion detection sensors automatically pauses the music when you take the headphones off and resumes where you last left off when you put them on again. The ZIK can even detect jaw movements to reduce the volume precisely when you’re talking.

The ZIK also includes three microphones and noise cancellation features. There’s even an app that can help users to manage and control the headset.
