I really wanted to get into headphones, but it didn't happen for me. I purchased these awesome headphones a year ago, but they have been sitting on the custom wood stand pretty much unused. I finally decided it is time they find a home that is more appreciative of the headphone business. Here is what's included with this sale:
- Audioquest NightOwl headphones in abosolutely mint condition
- All original packaging, carrying pouch, manuals, accessories, extra ear pads, foam inserts, etc
- A custom-made 10' high end headphone cable using Japanese copper with a 6.5mm plug (intended for use with your headphone amp)
- A custom-made 4' headphone cable with 3.5mm plug (intended for use with a mobile player / device)
- A custom-made solid birch wood headphone stand (please note there is a little bit of discoloration from the headphone band - one could probably sand and seal, but I did not want to mess with this)
The original Audioquest headphone cable went missing in my house (embarrassing....) and has not re-emerged. Hence, I had the two above custom cables made from high quality materials.
My price includes shipping in Conus and paypal fees. No trades, no low-ballers please. Check my feedback and buy with confidence. From the web:
The NightOwl Carbon from AudioQuest is easily a favourite in the office of headphones.com. One of our favourite closed-backs currently on the market, the NightOwl Carbons bring a very unique listening experience. Working 8-12 days with headphones can be a pain with clamping pressure, uncomfortable earpads, and headphone fatigue is not fun for anyone. The NightOwl Carbons are one of the most comfortable closed-back headphones on the market, with a super laid-back sound signature that is fun to listen to for hours on end. The NightOwl Carbons are the perfect headphones for those who love listening to EDM, trance, rap and so much more. While we wouldn't recommend them for classical as they are a little recessed in the highs, they are a very fun headphone for relaxed listening sessions!
Hidden beneath the central circular portion of NightOwl’s ear cups, a vent runs along the perimeter of each dome and exits through a hidden airflow-resistive port. Thus, unlike other headphones that use a sealed enclosure, NightOwl is designed to effectively relieve the buildup of pressure, allowing the drivers to breathe freely, ensuring that any impulses quickly return to an innocuous resting state—with no ringing, oscillation, or resonance.
Compared to the drive-units commonly used in most headphones, NightOwl’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.
NightOwl’s headpad attaches to its outer headband via small, swiveling 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 NightOwl over your head and let it do its thing. There’s nothing else to do, but enjoy.
