  1. Dear Team,

    first of all, congrats for the great review/news as always and happy new year!

    Yep, nice earphones the zik sport… great design for sure.. but honestly I’m a bit affraid regarding the two main topics: 1) the price, which will be high for sure 2) the acoustic performances and related sound signature..

    Frankly speaking, I’m really more exiting about the forthcoming launch of the aluminum earphones UBSOUND Fighter seires in the US market in January 2015 at only 69$… this Italian brand is really cool and, as the most important worldwide bolgs/forums & webzines are writing indeed, it seems that the Fighter acoustic signature is unique and top quality, which gives a v-shaped sound scene, with full, deep, rounded & textured Bass, clear and detailed Highs, and warm Mids frequency a bit behind, generating a great 3d effect with a perfect soundstage.. a masterpiece with a cool Italian design imho. This is the link: http://www.ubsound.com

    Anyway, let’s see what other users think about it.

    Ditto 😉

    1. This is something very interesting that is worth paying your extreme attention ,a very good chance to work for those people who want to use their free time so that they can make some extra money using their computers… I have been working on this for last two and half years and I am earning 60-90 dollar/ hour … In the past week I have earned 13,70 dollars for almost 20 hours sitting ….

      Any special qualification, degree or skills is not necessary for this, just keyboard typing and a good working and reliable internet connection ….

      Not any Time limitations to start work … You may do this work at any time when you willing to do it ….

      Just know how I have been doing this…..….see this (webiste-Iink) on my !profile!` to know how I am working` on this`


  2. Hello…
    these new IEMs Zik Sport by Parrot & Starck are surely a masterpiece.. a great design. However, I fully agree with the Lupin’s comment above concerning the stellar high quality of the new aluminum earphones Ubsound Fighter, for the excellent sound performance, for the super bass frequency playback, for the great v-shaped signature, for the buling quality & related materials, for the nice flat tangle-free wire and also for the unbeliavable low price considering the top manufacturing quality of these IEMs of just 69$. I bought the aluminum red sport color model whilst traveling in Spain and happy they are now available in the US as well.

      1. Hey baby troller… what do you mean with spam? I just posted my opinion… Is it clear? no further flame please.

  3. Hi, yes these great earphones Zik Sport of Parrot are really engaging, with a superb design by Starck and an advance technology. That said above, as I am an IEMs collector with more than 70 high quality earphones in my own collection of the best worldwide audio brands, I’d like to underline that I fully agree with the comments of giorgio and lupin about the excellent high quality of the aluminum earphones Ubsound Fighter, which are really a masterpiece in the IEM scenario, for the design, sound signature in playback, the warm deep bass frequency, the flat tanglefree wire and their low price of around 60$ compared to their undisputed high quality.
    However, imho, I also think that you can’t compare professional highend wired in-ear earphones like the Fighter series, with wirless bluetooth earphones for sport, which are obviously more focused on the style, design and fashion instead of a real acoustic performance rich in details and with a clear sound signature which gives a great soundstage 3d effect like the Fighter and many other brands specialized in IEMs.

  4. I don’t know much about sport headphones, but I believe I’ve average knowledge about variety of head phones. Among them my all time favorite is sennheiser ie80 headphone which I bought from Bay Bloor Radio at Toronto ( http://www.baybloorradio.com ).
    In my opinion. like Parrot Zik Sport headphone, the power of adaptive noise cancelling to isolate external sound is integrated to almost all new generation headphones. I truly love the idea of new street mode that can help runners when practicing jogging.
