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.

Would love to try this one, tend to lean towards close back headphones and those who are a bit leaner in the highs.

I would love these, the Nighthawks were the most comfortable/special headphones. Need closed, but can't buy them here in Australia for some reason. Thanks for this sweepstake.

PDC3's picture

"Nighthawk" is a name that captures the late night, solo flight feeling of adventure that we headphone listeners have on our better listening sessions.

bfwiat's picture

I borrowed the NightHawks from a mate and loved them ... but funnily enough I need a closed headphone as I like to listen late at night and don't want any headphone spill... So it's like AQ heard my dream and designed the NightOwls for me... maybe to win.

Audioquest has a nice progressive vision ahead with their hinted future developments in headphones. Really digging how they continued from NH model to Nightowl with biocellulose drivers, rubber surrounds and the cup materials so both open & closed back models cater to applications of listeners.

The hints circulating are that AQ has has all sorts of R & D ongoing to release some very cool new headphone models in the future. Great development furthers our hobby in getting closer to the true sound when reproduced. Super company, Thank You for your progression of the art.

I love the design of Audioquest's headphones, and I wish that I had heard that they sound as good as they look, but that has been more divisive. Regardless, I have heard that they have quite an unique signature,and I it's a signature I would like to try!
