AUDIOQUESTNIGHTHAWKLARGE

AudioQuest NightHawk “Semi-open” Headphones Available Now!

AUDIOQUESTNIGHTHAWKLARGE

AudioQuest NightHawk ‘Semi-Open’ Headphones – £499.00

AudioQuest – producer of the multi-award winning Dragonfly DAC v1.2 – has decided to branch out into the headphone market, and have done so with aplomb. Their first offering of headphones, the AudioQuest NightHawk ‘Semi-open’ headphones demand attention.

 

In a market that can feel saturated with passing good headphones AudioQuest have broken new ground and given their headphones a reason to exist other than simply providing another set of ordinary ‘phones.

AudioQuest have designed the NightHawks to be 'Semi-Open' back

The NightHawks are described as ‘Semi-Open’ back – yes, we were confused too

Designed from the ground up, the NightHawk headphones straight away look like a special piece of kit. The semi-open circumaural earcups have been made of revolutionary material ‘liquid wood’ – which the NightHawks’ unique sound is credited in part to.

 

The NightHawks give a smooth and warm listen with bass given authority while the higher end is a little relaxed. This, coupled with the fact that these headphones are so comfortable, gives a very comfortable and fatigue-free experience – even if listening for extended periods.

 

The bass has authority, but this doesn’t mean that the NightHawks are for bass-heads only. The mid-range is smooth and warm and, whilst the top-end may lack some detail, there definitely texture there. The mellowed top-end may feel like a slight trading off in exchange for the NightHawks fluidity to those that like their headphones bright, but spend some time with the NightHawks and we’re sure you’ll fall in love with them.

 

The AuqioQuest Night Hawk Full-Size, Around-the-ear, ‘Semi-Open’ Headphones are available for £499.00.

New Dunu Earphones Coming Soon to AMP3

With the Dunu range of in-ear headphones proving popular at AMP3, we are soon to be stocking a range of new Dunu products. Check out the new arrivals below.

DN-Titan 1 (£79)

DN-Titan 1 (£79)

 

The most affordable of the new additions to the Dunu range, the DN-Titan 1s are definitely not to be sniffed at. Utilizing a titanium diaphragm these in ear monitors produce a thick bass and clear trebles that belies their price and can handle high power without causing distortion.

 

With a sleek, minimalist body crafted in metal designed to reduce extra resonance, these earphones are tough and durable.

Dunu DN-Alpha 1 Dynamic Balanced Armature Earphones – The World’s First Hybrid Earbud

DN-Alpha 1 (£129)

DN-Alpha 1 (£129)

Being touted as the ‘World’s first hybrid earbud’, the new DN-Alpha 1s certainly will pique music enthusiasts’ interest.

 

When looking for earphones to use on the move, people tend to look for in-canal earphones as they create a seal with the ear and isolate the listener from outside noise; not so with the humble earbud.

 

This may put some potential buyers off, but the DN-Alpha 1s are actually very comfortable and have been graced with a ‘hybrid’ system of dynamic and balanced armature drivers. With the dynamic driver providing quality bass and the balanced armature taking care of the mids and highs, the Alpha 1s prove to be well-balanced and smooth whilst maintaining comfort for the listener.

 

If this wasn’t enough, the Alpha 1s come supplied with a treasure trove of accessories to make sure you get the most from your new earphones.

Dunu DN-Alpha 1

 

Dunu DN-2000 Audiophile Dynamic Balanced Armature Hybrid IEM Earphones with Pioneering Hybrid Technology

DN-2000 (£239)

DN-2000 (£239)

Last but certainly not least, the DN-2000s again feature the combination of dynamic drivers and dual balanced armature drivers to create a ‘hybrid’ flagship earphone.

 

With a dynamic driver to produce strong bass outputs, and a single driver for both the mids and highs, the DN-2000s provide the listener with a full soundstage which is suitable for all genres of music.

 

The DN-2000s are as a result balanced and transparent but not lacking in bass, meaning they are the perfect earphones for those looking for a quality output for their high-resolution player.

DACs for your ‘phones?

Zorloo Z:ero

 

With greater demand for higher sound quality whilst on the move some manufacturers have come up with a novel way of getting you the quality you demand – earphones with integrated DACs.

The earphone manufacturer Zorloo has designed the ‘World’s First’ digital earphone, the bizarrely named Z:ero, which plugs directly into the Micro-USB port on your smartphone to provide you with digital audio output. With a Wolfson DAC and a headphone amplifier crammed into the in-line control, the Zorloo Z:ero is definitely more portable than carrying around a separate DAC and amp.

 

FiiO E18

Previously audiophiles on the move would have to carry around amplifier/DAC combos such as the FiiO E18

But Zorloo aren’t the only people to offer headphones with built-in DACs. Sony has already released the MDR-1ADAC, a set of over-ear headphones with a built-in DAC, and Philips demoed their new NC1L noise cancelling headphones at CES 2015, which has an integrated 24-bit DAC designed to give Apple users superior audio via the Lightning port on their device.

 

Zorloo may not have gotten there first, but incorporating DACs into earphones and headphones may be the start of a new trend as manufacturers look to target the more discerning smartphone audio enthusiasts.
