Overview

 

Sit there for a minute and just look at these.

Shhh…

Okay, we have these in the store now, and you should hotfoot it over to Liptons for a listen, a look, and a fondle of these beautiful headphones. Made using “liquid wood” a beautiful, formable, material with excellent acoustic properties.

Check out this review from Inner Fidelity, with an interview of designer Skylar Gray about the design and production of these gorgeous devices.

I first heard of this project coming along about a year ago when I chatted with Skylar Gray (AudioQuest’s chief designer on the project) at CES. I also got a personal guided tour of the NightHawk in it’s most current iteration at the time a month ago at CanJam@RMAF. Astonishing then, and now, is how much innovation Skylar has managed to pack into this new headphone design. Much of it is mentioned on their NightHawk launch site, but I thought I’d take a few moments to relay my understanding of some of these design features. So, open another tab to their site and I’ll talk you through what I know, and what I’d like to know more about, regarding this very interesting headphone.

There’s so much to say¬†about Audioquest’s¬†Nighthawk, that you may as well come over to hear it all. We’re here waiting for you.
