AudioQuest’s first headphones needed a special name—a name that conveyed power and freedom, inspired ideas of physical and emotional transportation, complemented the overall look and feel of the product, and still left room for growth. After much deliberation, NightHawk was chosen to lead what will be a complete family of headphones that match outstanding performance with extraordinary value.


  • Sustainable, liquid wood ear cups provide superior acoustic properties.
  • Flexible headband efficiently distributes the headphone's weight, providing a feel that is both comfortable and comforting.
  • Simple yet intelligent suspension system allows the ear cups to articulate freely, accommodating heads of nearly any shape or size.
  • Soft, durable protein leather ear pads, shaped to resemble the human ear, with greater thickness toward the rear of the pad provide additional comfort while setting NightHawk's drivers at an angle optimized for precise, stable imaging.
  • Headphone cable minimizes distortion to promote intense user satisfaction and provide a deep emotional connection to the music.
  • High-purity solid perfect-surface copper+ conductors, foamed-polyethylene insulation, and silver-plated terminations.
  • Soft nylon cable braid minimizes mechanical noise.
  • Custom 3.5mm-to-1/4” headphone adapter features thick Direct-Silver plating over the highest quality base metal.
  • 50mm high-excursion drivers have biocellulose pistonic diaphragms that are rigid and self-damping, which are more accurate and musically pleasing than Mylar.
  • Split-gap motor design dramatically reduces intermodulation distortion to provide a clean, well-defined broadband response and a large, naturally detailed representation of space.
  • Symmetrically distributed, equation-driven curvatures guide airflow through internal driver structure to reduce harmful, unpredictable effects of turbulent air pockets and voice coil rocking.
  • Grille’s intricate 3D printed latticework diffuses sound and defeats the resonances that ultimately distort and damage music.
  • Sophisticated ear cup enclosure incorporates support beams that enhance structural integrity and minimize unwanted resonances and vibrations.
  • Elastomeric coating carefully applied to the enclosure’s internal surfaces further reduce harmful vibrations.
  • Wool and polyester damping material enables an extraordinarily smooth, natural frequency response for a deeply immersive and emotionally compelling listening experience.
  • Maximum Power Handling: 1.5 W
  • Impedance: 24Ω
  • Sensitivity: 100dB SPL/mW
  • Ear Cup Dimensions: 3.6"w x 4.2"h x 2.4"d
  • Weight: 13.3 oz
