How do I change the Parrot Zik 3 audio settings?

When I pick up a call on my iPhone with my Parrot Zik 3 on my ears, the call is transferred to the iPhone (not to the headphones).
This limitation is caused by the iPhone. A workaround for this problem is to pick up the call directly on the Parrot Zik 3 by pressing the touch control panel.
My smartphone supports HD Voice feature. However, HD Voice is not activated during communication.
To use the HD Voice feature, your telephone, your contact's telephone and the network you are using must be HD Voice compatible.

Bluetooth® connection
I cannot connect to my device via Bluetooth
If your Parrot Zik 3 appears in the Bluetooth devices’ list, make sure that another device is not connected to the Parrot Zik 3. 
      If your Parrot Zik 3 does not appear in the Bluetooth devices’ list:


  • Make sure that the Parrot Zik 3 is definitely turned on.
  • Make sure that the Bluetooth is activated on your smartphone. To do so, go in Settings > Bluetooth and activate Bluetooth.
I cannot control playback of tracks using the Parrot Zik 3's touch control panel.
Make sure that your audio player/application supports the AVRCP Bluetooth profile. If this profile is not supported, you will not be able to use the touch control panel. Preferably, you should also use your device’s native audio player (e.g. if you are using the Parrot Zik 3 with a PC, use Windows Media Player).
How many Bluetooth audio players can I use with the Parrot Zik 3?
You have the option to pair your Parrot Zik 3 with five devices (smartphone, PC, Bluetooth audio player, etc.). If you pair a sixth device, the pairing of the device with the oldest last connection date will be deleted. 

It is not possible to simultaneously connect several devices to the Parrot Zik 3.
What is the maximum distance that can be maintained between the Parrot Zik 3 and a Bluetooth audio player?
The distance depends on the performance of your Bluetooth audio player. We recommend that you do not exceed a distance of three meters between the Parrot Zik 3 and your Bluetooth audio player. The sound quality may also be affected if there are certain obstacles (walls, partition walls, metal, etc.) between your Bluetooth audio player and the Parrot Zik 3.
