Audioquest Nighthawk review

 

These headphones will give you gentle caressing, but no rough and tumble.

Innovative and stylish design Smooth, weighty, dynamic performance

A bit too polite Need tighter timing and greater clarity

We have mixed feelings about the Audioquests. While we may enthuse about the design and ergonomics, the audio performance is a less positive area. They certainly have some admirable qualities, and while they do many things well, a few fundamental flaws...

AudioQuest NightHawk headphones

 

A super-comfortable, well-crafted pair of over-ear headphones that are a joy to listen to

Excellent sound ; Excellent comfort ; Appealing design

Semi-open design means those around you can hear what you're hearing, so don't use them in an office

AudioQuest's NightHawk headphones sound as beautiful as they look

 

Modern life is too full of disposable things. From the simplest pen to the smartest phone, we just consume our way through a litany of gadgets, tools, and devices without ever stopping to truly...

You can wear them for days without fatigue ; Lusciously warm sound ; Unique aesthetic and suspension design

Sound signature might not be to everyone's taste ; Large and ostentatious ; Impractical for outdoor use

These headphones are about appreciating the finer things in life, and are a piece of audio gear that can invoke as much emotion in the owner as the music that's listened to. They are not a purchase to be taken lightly, especially if you are an aspiring...

AudioQuest NightHawk Headphone Review

 

NightHawk's use of sustainable materials, high comfort, and sweet sound bode well for AudioQuest's debut headphone.

50mm biocellulose drivers; Liquid wood ear cups; Deliciously comfortable

Cable much too long for portable use

AudioQuest NightHawk Over-the-Ear Headphones Reviewed

 

Many audiophiles were excited when AudioQuest premiered its first headphone, dubbed "NightHawk," at the 2015 CES. The product looked beautiful, and all the preliminary reports offered glowing descriptions of its sound. But a lot can happen from the...

The NightHawk's physical design results in earphones that are comfortable and light weight ; The NightHawk headphones have excellent bass dynamics, definition, and weight ; The harmonic balance gives the NightHawk headphones an unfatiguing sonic character

At last count, Amazon had 62,541 entries in its headphone category. Out of those I can almost guarantee that none of them sound similar to the AudioQuest NightHawk. With a lesser headphone, that would usually be a bad thing. But if you follow...

A Top Contender! A new competitor has arrived!

 

A web of controversy: The usual suspect of "snake oil items" Audioquest has established itself as a notorious company, solely focused on the manufacture of "state of the art" Hi-fi, primarily "exclusive cables" that focus on reducing audible...

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Not very good for the price...

 

Heard these with Chord Hugo and boy oh boy was I unimpressed... These are not worth anywhere their price point where their sound is concerned. Decently comfortable though. The sound signature is just not pleasant, it's not very detailed or musical,...

Comfortable

Dark sound, uncompetitive at price point
