The Parrot Zik Sport Rare, a pair of athletic headphones designed to stay put as you work up a sweat, made their debut at CES 2015.

The headphones have the same audio features as their predecessor, the very capable Zik 2.0, but they are engineered for a better fit around the head. The wrap-around set is designed with five points of contact in order to better distribute pressure and, therefore, keep them in the correct position.

Along with eight microphones -- six for noise-canceling, two for voice calls -- the Parrot Zik Sport Rare is outfitted with biometric features such as heart-rate tracking, as well as an accelerator, used to measure stats like steps per minute or vertical oscillation.
