    Offering a unique combination of unsurpassed comfort,
    state-of-the-art design, and naturally beautiful sound,
    AudioQuest's first headphone, NightHawk, has been
    lovingly featured in the pages of magazines and websites
    as far-reaching as Stereophile, Rolling Stone, CNET, Wired,
    Head-Fi, Digital Trends, The Verge, and many more. This
    is evidence of the intensifying convergence between the
    high-fidelity and high-technology worlds, and testament
    to NightHawk's uncanny ability to captivate and inspire a
    diverse audience of thinkers, builders, engineers, and, of
    course, music lovers.

    While NightHawk's many innovative design elements-
    Liquid Wood earcups, biomimetic sound-diffusing grilles,
    and high-performance solid-conductor cable, to name just
    a few-have impressed listeners worldwide, many have
    expressed interest in different paint finishes, more versatile
    cables, and closed-back designs.

    AudioQuest takes the first of many steps toward satisfying
    those interests with two new around-the-ear models:
    NightHawk Carbon and NightOwl Carbon.

    NightHawk Carbon is a more sophisticated,
    more mature version of the original. It boasts all of the
    same exciting refinements found in NightOwl-improved
    performance, greater comfort, two pairs of earpads, a far
    more durable cable with mic and smartphone controls,
    enhanced look and feel -all while
    retaining its predecessor's remarkably low distortion and
    fatigue-free sound.

    Acoustic Refinements

    • Modified internal parts: Tighter tolerances reduce air
      leakage for improved airflow and lower distortion
    • Two sets of earpads: Protein Leather Boost Pads seal
      tighter for better isolation and slightly enhanced treble
      clarity; Microsuede Pads breathe freer for greater comfort
      and slightly reduced bass impact
    • Improved plugs: High-purity Tellurium Copper (TeCu)
      base metal for smoother surface, higher plating quality,
      better mating contact, and, consequently, less noise

    Ergonomic Refinements

    • Improved headpad: Genuine leather headpad with
      stitched detailing for enhanced comfort, more luxurious
      look and feel
    • Improved cable: Shorter (4.25ft) length for easier use
      at the desktop or with mobile devices; flexible, nonbraided
      jacket increases durability, eliminates kinking,
      minimizes microphonics; robustly engineered and
      rigorously tested strain relief further increases durability;
      discrete microphone and smartphone controls enable
      phone calls and playback functions (Play, Pause, Skip)
      without compromising sound quality

    Cosmetic Refinements

    • Luxurious finish: Porsche Carbon Grey Metallic highgloss
      paint meticulously applied via multistage process
    • Improved inner presentation: Includes microfiber
      pouches for headphones and accessories for safer,
      simpler travel

    Of course, all of the advanced design elements that
    made the original NightHawk such a success are carried
    over into the improved models. NightHawk Carbon and
    NightOwl Carbon share their predecessor's pistonic
    drivers with biocellulose diaphragms, compliant rubber
    surrounds, and true voice-coil formers. The patented splitgap
    motor remains unsurpassed in its ability to reduce
    intermodulation distortion. The earcups are fabricated
    from the same revolutionary Liquid Wood material, which
    affords acoustically optimized support beams and carefully
    applied damping. The patent-pending suspension system
    allows the earcups to move freely, accommodating heads
    of almost any shape or size, while effectively decoupling
    the earcups to counteract resonances.

    Thus, NightHawk's exceedingly low distortion, unrivaled
    comfort, and naturally detailed sound have been
    enhanced in every meaningful way. With the new semiopen
    NightHawk Carbon and closed-back NightOwl
    Carbon headphones, you can listen longer, later, and with
    greater pleasure, enjoying even deeper immersion in your
    favorite music, movies, videos, and games.
