What to buy?

Sound performance and comfort are about the same between the Bose QC35  and Parrot Zik 3. So it all comes to what features means more to you, Do you want better app, charging wirelessly and more? or you priority are for the best noise cancelling, with much longer battery life?


  1. You are joking when you say “Sound performance and comfort are about the same between the Bose QC35 and Parrot Zik 3.” Even the Zik 2.0 sound better than Bose because you cannot customise the EQ in Bose QC35.
