Using an intelligent closed-back design, the Audioquest NightOwl makes listening in busy environments more absorbing than ever.

Intelligent closed-back design

Based on the award-winning NightHawk, the NightOwl uses a sophisticated closed-back design. A closed-back design keeps more of the outside noise out and vice versa, so you can enjoy more of the music, even in noisy environments. Unlike standard closed-back designs, however, the NightOwl uses airflow ports to relieve the build up of pressure. This lets the speakers operate more smoothly and gives a fast, punchy sound.

Bio-cellulose diaphragms for superb detail
Inspired by loudspeaker design, the NightOwl's reject the more commonly used Mylar driver diaphragms for something much more special. Bio-cellulose diaphragms with rubber surrounds and over-sized voice coils are far closer to quality speaker design than headphones. The result is deep, well-controlled bass, natural midrange and smooth yet detailed treble. Extremely well balanced-sounding, the NightOwl's natural sound gives long term satisfaction.

Enhanced cable with mic and smartphone remote
As one of the world's leading cable companies, you'd expect the NightOwl to feature strongly here. And it does. The high quality AudioQuest cable is made from high-purity copper for the highest level of sonic detail. It also features a flexible cable jacket that's designed to reduce the annoying 'rustling' sound you can sometimes get on the move. Coming with a smartphone in-line remote and mic, the NightOwl is ideal for music on the go.

Unique Liquid Wood construction
The NightOwl's earcups are made from Liquid Wood: a totally renewable blend of lignin, natural fibres, resins and waxes. This isn't just more environmentally friendly than hard wood or plastic, it also has the potential to sound better. Natural acoustic properties, precise injection moulding and moulded-in bracing contribute to the NightOwl's precise yet smooth sound quality.

Designed for comfort
Using a patent-pending suspension system, the NightOwl's manage to effectively adjust to all head shapes and sizes while also decoupling the earcups. Decoupling counteracts intrusive mechanical crosstalk, greatly reducing distortion. The earcups are shaped around the human ear for a natural fit and the best passive noise isolation. Made from soft yet durable Protein Leather, they offer perfect comfort over the longest listening sessions.

The perfect AudioQuest headphones for live on the go, the NightOwl's sound great at any time of the day - or night!
