AudioQuest has evolved their first headphone, the Nighthawk, into two new designs for 2017: the open back NightHawk Carbon and the closed back NIghtOwl Carbon. (In this case “Carbon” is a color, not a material.) These are already headed into our High End Headphone Library, and at $699 for each design will set a high bar.

AQ also showed off the new Niagara 5000 line conditioner ($3995), promising 90% of the performance of the outstanding Niagara 7000 ($7995) for half the price. A bonus is that at a much lighter weight we will be able to offer the Niagara 5000 for in-home evaluations through The Cable Library. At it’s near 100 lb shipping weight this just was not practical for the Niagara 7000 in most cases.
