Compared to the drive-units commonly used in most headphones, NightHawk Carbon’s 50mm dynamic driver much more closely resembles the high-quality drive-units found in today’s most sophisticated loudspeakers—not simply in appearance, but, more importantly, in terms of function and performance. It employs a carefully constructed bio-cellulose diaphragm, voice-coil former, and compliant rubber surround, resulting in quality that is as easily seen as it is heard.
Comfortable Listening Experience
NightHawk Carbon’s headpad attaches to its outer headband via small, swivelling pins located on either side of the headband’s base, just above the suspension’s yoke. An inner elastic band is concealed by a soft, modestly cushioned pad, which yields and rises when met by resistance or pressure. In this simple way, the headpad automatically adjusts to the listener’s head—no clicking, snapping, cranking, or guessing involved—guaranteeing an easy, comfortable fit, time and time again. Just place NightHawk Carbon over your head and let it do its thing. There’s nothing else to do, but enjoy.
As with any open-back headphone, the NightHawk Carbon has a protective grille covering its internal drivers to protect. Unfortunately these grilles often have diffusion issues with their sound. AudioQuest has looked to solve those issues with their biomimetic grille. To solve the problem of diffusion, NightHawk uses a biomimetic grille inspired by the underlying structure of butterfly wings—a fascinating diamond-cubic latticework that diffuses light to create iridescence.
Built to a much larger scale in NightHawk, AudioQuest’s grille comprises a repeating pattern of interwoven trellises, each successive layer gradually becoming thicker as the latticework expands outward.
