Lush black leather and a swooping aluminum armature lend the Parrot Zik a crisp, cool aesthetic, but these Philippe Starck–designed headphones pair as well with your playlists as they do with your wardrobe. The noise-canceling headphones have Bluetooth connectivity and an intuitive interface: Tap and swipe the foam pads to adjust volume and navigate tracks; a motion sensor even pauses your music when you remove them – however rarely that happens.
