A more sophisticated, more mature version of the award-winning NightHawk, NightHawk Carbon boasts several acoustic, ergonomic, and cosmetic refinements, adds a second pair of earpads, and includes a more versatile, durable cableall while retaining its predecessors exceedingly low distortion, unsurpassed comfort, and naturally beautiful sound.
Sophisticated, Loudspeaker-inspired Design for Remarkable Resolution
Compared to the drive-units commonly used in most headphones, NightHawk Carbons 50mm dynamic driver much more closely resembles the high-quality drive-units found in todays most sophisticated loudspeakersnot 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.
Designed for exceedingly low distortion and high excursion with true pistonic motion, NightHawk Carbons driver contributes significantly to the headphones well-controlled bass, rich midrange, and naturally extended highs. Its combination of effortless clarity and outstanding representation of space produces meaningful, emotionally compelling listening experiences. More than merely capable of providing short-term pleasure, NightHawk Carbon is designed to deliver satisfaction that endures.
Comfortable, Fatigue-Free Listening
NightHawk Carbons headpad attaches to its outer headband via small, swiveling pins located on either side of the headbands base, just above the suspensions 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 listeners headno clicking, snapping, cranking, or guessing involvedguaranteeing an easy, comfortable fit, time and time again. Just place NightHawk Carbon over your head and let it do its thing. Theres nothing else to do, but enjoy.
An Immersive, Semi-Open Headphone
The open-back design of NightHawk Carbons speaker enclosuresits earcupsenables an expanded, three-dimensional soundstage with natural dynamics and smooth, coherent performance that extends into the lowest and highest octaves.
As with any open-back headphone, the open area had to be protected by a grille to prevent damage to the headphones precision-made internal parts. Traditionally, this has almost always been accomplished with perforated metal/plastic, wire cloth, or some other effectively two-dimensional material. While more or less successful at protecting the headphones internal parts, these materials also tend to compromise the headphones performance, reflecting sound back toward the driver, creating standing waves and resonant colorations.
But what if this grille could be three-dimensional and promote a random scattering of sounddiffusionto successfully prevent those destructive standing waves?
