The Audioquest NightHawk Carbon headphones have been carefully optimized for high levels of sonic, ergonomic, and aesthetic performance with much of its engineering inspiration taken from today’s most sophisticated loudspeaker designs. They also employ the latest technologies such as 3D printing for some parts!

The Carbon version is a more sophisticated, more mature version of the award-winning NightHawk, NightHawk Carbon boasts several acoustic, ergonomic, and cosmetic refinements, adds a second pair of earpads, and includes a more versatile, durable cable—all while retaining its predecessor’s exceedingly low distortion, unsurpassed comfort, and naturally beautiful sound.

NightHawk’s earcups are made from a remarkable material known as “Liquid Wood,” which offers outstanding acoustic properties and is environmentally friendly. These sophisticated loudspeaker-cabinet-inspired earcup enclosures incorporate support beams that enhance structural integrity and minimize unwanted resonances and vibrations. An elastomer coating is carefully applied to the enclosures’ internal surfaces to further reduce harmful vibrations, while a damping material comprising an effective blend of wool and polyester enables an extraordinarily smooth, natural frequency response.

The NightHawk models are the first completely original production headphone to use a 3D-printed part—a biomimetic grille that uses a complex diamond- cubic latticework to diffuse sound and defeat resonances. The 50mm pistonic drivers have a biocellulose diaphragm which takes advantage of the material’s outstanding rigidity and lack of resonances or break-up modes, while its patented split-gap motor significantly reduce intermodulation distortion. The flexible headband effectively distributes the headphones’ weight, providing a sure and simple fit designed to minimize clamping force and enable long listening sessions. Finally, NightHawk’s patent-pending suspension system allows its earcups to move freely, accommodating heads of any shape or size, while decoupling the earcups, further preventing harmful resonances.
