AudioQuest NightOwl Carbon Headphones Sweepstakes

Register to win a pair of AudioQuest NightOwl Carbon Headphones ($699.00 Retail Value) we are giving away.

According to the company:

A direct descendant of AudioQuest's award-winning NightHawk headphone, the closed-back NightOwl Carbon replaces its predecessor's biomimetic sound-diffusing grille with an intelligently designed aperiodic damping system for excellent isolation of external noise, ensuring privacy for the listener and those nearby.

NightOwl ships with two sets of earpads—Protein Leather Boost Pads for slightly enhanced treble clarity and Ultrasuede pads for slightly reduced bass impact—and includes a high-performance, non-microphonic cable with discrete mic/smartphone controls that enable phone calls and playback functions (Play, Pause, Skip) without compromising sound quality.

NightOwl's distinct packaging is actually an attractive travel case made of genuine leather, featuring a thickly padded internal compartment and accommodations for various headphone accessories. With NightOwl, AudioQuest hopes headphone enthusiasts will feel inspired to listen longer, later, and with greater pleasure, enjoying unsurpassed comfort and deep immersion in music, videos, and games.

Would love to own a pair of headphones that my kids don't destroy in a couple hours.

I'd love to hear them, as they look like great kit. It was surprising to me to see that RMAF was about 1/4 headphone stuff. I thought they were more niche than this, but they're quite the "it girl" it seems.

I'm still using Pioneer headphones from 1970! This prize could bring me into modern times.

I definitely could use these since I'm moving to a new apartment and I don't know how my new neighbors will react to my music listening. I mostly listen to hardcore music and most people don't appreciate that genre, so please help me out.

I could sure use some new cans!'s picture

An old disabled guy with spinal cancer sure could use a replacement for his circa 1973 Koss Pro4AA phones that still has the fluid-filled ear cushions intact! Purchased with a Marantz 2325 receiver, JBL-100 speakers, Dual 1229q turntable, and Wollensak 4765 cassette deck all of which are still in active use today. Maybe time to upgrade/evolve? It's up to you guys! Many thanks from a loyal consultant Kevin.'s picture

Still retain old copies of original Stereo Review. Does that make me a bad guy or maybe just a hoarder? Time and a probable jury trial will tell.

I'm the audiophile of the family, but my brother recently got a nice set of headphones and is now outdoing me in that category. I've never had a really nice set and these would definitely catch me up - they look awesome! Thanks!

drkline's picture

Can't beat over-the-ear headphones!

achristilaw's picture

I understand the design of the closed lends itself to being perceived as more open sounding, even more than the current open design.
