AudioQuest NightOwl Carbon Headphones Sweepstakes

Register to win a pair of AudioQuest NightOwl Carbon Headphones ($699.00 Retail Value) we are giving away.

According to the company:

A direct descendant of AudioQuest's award-winning NightHawk headphone, the closed-back NightOwl Carbon replaces its predecessor's biomimetic sound-diffusing grille with an intelligently designed aperiodic damping system for excellent isolation of external noise, ensuring privacy for the listener and those nearby.

NightOwl ships with two sets of earpads—Protein Leather Boost Pads for slightly enhanced treble clarity and Ultrasuede pads for slightly reduced bass impact—and includes a high-performance, non-microphonic cable with discrete mic/smartphone controls that enable phone calls and playback functions (Play, Pause, Skip) without compromising sound quality.

NightOwl's distinct packaging is actually an attractive travel case made of genuine leather, featuring a thickly padded internal compartment and accommodations for various headphone accessories. With NightOwl, AudioQuest hopes headphone enthusiasts will feel inspired to listen longer, later, and with greater pleasure, enjoying unsurpassed comfort and deep immersion in music, videos, and games.

I listen to a lot of personal audio gear. These are outstanding headphones and look great. I think that more folks are going to like this headphone a ton. The nice thing is that they are very easy to run, unlike so many other higher end cans. For their list price, I feel it's a tremendous value as I would put it up against most of the 1k cans on the market. Some want big bass that affects the mids and some want super shrill highs. That's not what these are about at all. These will most probably appeal to those who are looking for a fairly neutral sounding headphone that's still really fun to listen to. I've heard these on some really good amps as well as my own AQ Red DAC and it's got better extension than the Hawks to me. It was never fatiguing like I've found the less expensive Audezes' as well as the less expensive Hifiman can's. JMHO. Glad to see they are doing this.

bmac78758's picture
