AudioQuest NightHawk “Semi-open” Headphones Available Now!


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.

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.

Sony NWZ-W262: Finally the perfect MP3 player for sports?


Sony W-Series NWZ-W262 Walkman 2GB


The athlete who enjoys listening to their own music while exercising will be all too aware of the challenges in selecting the ‘right’ MP3 player and headphones. Before exercise even commences we fight a battle in trying to choose the perfect combination of MP3 player and headphones. The market is full of sports specific headphones and MP3 players but where you find one that is of quality standard the other might be significantly poorer in performance. For example, the iPod shuffle may be ideal in size and capacity but its headphones are distinctly lacking in the gym worthy stakes.

There is little else more frustrating than reaching the end of your run and inspired by good music and a rush of endorphins you push the last minute to a sprint, only to find you’ve tugged the headphones from your ears and attention is stolen from trying to beat your personal best to not tripping over the dangling wires.

So is there a shortcut to a perfect MP3 player and headphone combination? Sony seems to think so with their sports Walkman model the Sony W-Series NWZ-W262 Walkman 2GB.

This model keeps things simple. Wires get in the way, so the NWZ-W262 doesn’t have them. MP3 players are often too bulky, so Sony incorporated the player into the headphones. Sweat makes the earphones come out, so the NWZ-W262 is sweat proof and secure. This is a bold concept but is equally as intuitive; one of those “why didn’t I think of this sooner?” moments.

The battery life is another winning feature. If you’re in a rush and have typically forgotten to charge the battery the NWZ-W262 will give you approximately half an hour of run time from only 3 minutes of charge. From 90 minutes you’ll get 8 hours. Sony also use the simple ‘drag and drop’ form of file transfer letting you put your music on the player with the ability to arrange it into playlists.

The headphones themselves boast a clear and powerful sound that even offer a comfortable fit. The innovative sweat proof design will also protect against rain and snow – you can even give them a wash under some running water after those particularly exertive training sessions.

So if you’re tired of searching the market for the perfect MP3 player and headphones for exercise, look no further than the Sony NWZ-W262.
