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 never win these things, but it's worth an entry! The original Nighthawks certainly had a polarizing sound. I'd be curious as to how these have changed.

luximal's picture

I heard the nightowls and it's quite good. Warm smooth with a decently wide stage (but little depth). Decent micro/macro dynamics and detail. And a lot cleaner sounding than the v1 nighthawks.

I would love to win one.
