Innovative Materials: Beautiful, Sustainable Liquid Wood NightHawk's earcups are made from a revolutionary new material known as "Liquid Wood"-actual wood that has been combined with reclaimed plant fiber, heated, liquefied, and processed in such a way that it can be injection molded. Compared to ordinary plastic or wood, however, Liquid Wood has far superior acoustic properties and provides a seemingly endless array of geometric possibilities.
Ergonomics: Removing the Barriers between Listener and Music NightHawk's flexible headband efficiently distributes the headphone's weight, providing a feel that is both comfortable and comforting-you'll want to wear NightHawk. Its simple yet intelligent, patent-pending suspension system allows the earcups to articulate freely, accommodating heads of nearly any shape or size, while effectively decoupling the earcups to counteract intrusive resonances. NightHawk's earpads are made of soft, durable protein leather-again shaped to resemble the human ear-with greater thickness toward the rear of the pad, thus providing additional comfort while setting NightHawk's drivers at an angle optimized for precise, stable imaging. Listen for hours-in comfort, immersed in music, moved by NightHawk.
The NightHawk Cable NightHawk benefits from AudioQuest's 30+ years of experience in the high-performance cable business, including a headphone cable purposefully designed to minimize distortion, promote intense user satisfaction, and provide a deep emotional connection to the music. It uses many of the same ingredients found in our speaker cables and interconnects, including high-purity Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ conductors, Foamed-Polyethylene insulation, Carbon-Based Noise-Dissipation System (NDS), and silver-plated terminations.
