High fidelity aficionados will welcome the release of the innovative NightHawk around-the-ear semi-open headphones [$895] from audio pioneer, AudioQuest. NightHawk offers superior performance, combining a suite of advanced audio and manufacturing technologies, sustainable materials with a stylish and ergonomic design. The ear cups are the result of state-of-the-art manufacturing made from a material known as “liquid wood” – wood that has been combined with reclaimed plant fibres, heated, liquefied and processed in a way that it can be injection-moulded. Unlike plastic, liquid wood delivers outstanding acoustic properties and has less impact on the environment.
NightHawk draws inspiration from loudspeaker designs for the best listening experience possible in a set of headphones. It has a biomimetic grille inspired by the structure of butterfly wings that uses a complex diamond-cubic latticework. This feature is designed to eliminate unwanted sound distortions and echoes for a smoother audio playback. Other features include:
- 50mm pistonic drivers with a bio cellulose diaphragm delivering smooth audio quality.
- Patented slip-gap motor significantly reduces intermodulation distortion [IMD].
- Patent-pending suspension system enables ear cups to move freely for a comfortable fit.
- Flexible headband distributes weight of the headphones evenly and reduces the clamping force to offer a comfortable listening session.
