Parrot_Zikmu_closeupYou may have come across Parrot‘s Zikmu wireless stereo speakers before, but you won’t have seen them like this. The Philippe Starck-designed speakers have been dressed up in a range of new colours – White Arctic, Grey Pearl and Lime Sorbet – in addition to gaining a new web interface and software update.

Parrot’s new web interface offers a browsing mode to select music in the iPod. There’s also an equalizer offering pre-settings according to the chosen music themes.

With every Parrot product, including Zikmu, the company offers free software updates at www.parrot.com to improve customer experience.

“With the Zikmu ‘in color’ collection, we pursue the idea of a high-tech product which is part of everyday life, similar to a piece of furniture or a decorative object,” said Henri Seydoux, founder of Parrot. “You choose it because you like it, because you will live well with it.”

Seydoux said the Zikmu offers “a 360-degree immersive sound and crystal clear sound image”, thanks to the NXT technology and control of all electrodynamic elements via a system of DSP processing and amplifiers.

The new range of colours debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
