Named 2015 CES Innovation Winner (Eco-Design & Sustainable Technology) and Honoree (Headphones), NightHawk is an around-the-ear, semi-open headphone—AudioQuest’s full-bore assault on both the state of the headphone art
and on the limits to which quality, innovation, and sustainability can be achieved at an affordable cost. Every aspect was carefully optimized for high levels of sonic, ergonomic, and aesthetic performance.
Of Course, NightHawk benefits from AudioQuest’s 30+ years of experience in the high performance cable business, including a headphone cable designed to minimize distortion and to maximize a deep emotional connection with the music. It uses many of the same ingredients found in our speaker cables and interconnects, including high-purity Sold Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductors, Foamed-PE insulation, Carbon-Loaded Noise-Dissipation System, and silver-platedterminations. We also include a custom 3/5mm to 1/4″ headphone adaptor that also uses thick Direct-Silver plating over Red Copper base metal, in resulting in a part that isn’t merely functional, but up to the standards of NightHawk itself.
From concept, through years of perfecting NightHawk, designer Skylar Gray worked from the ground up, applying his comprehensive vision to the ultimate goal – to celebrate the singularly moving experience of listening to music through headphones that don’t sound like headphones.
