AudioQuest has designed and refined high-performance cables since 1980. Our NightHawk / NightBird Model One headphone cable benefits from that experience, incorporating many of the design elements found in AudioQuest’s finest analog cables. Designed to effectively control noise and minimize distortion, NightHawk / NightBird Model One enables a deeper emotional connection between the listener and the music.

The cable’s flexible jacket greatly reduces microphonics—the annoyingly audible rustling or thumping sounds that occur when headphone cables come into contact with external surfaces—and its robust, rigorously tested strain relief (withstanding over 28,000 bends) ensures longevity.


Semi-Solid Perfect-Surface Copper+ Conductors
The astonishingly smooth and pure Perfect-Surface Copper+ eliminates harshness and greatly increases clarity compared to OFHC, OCC, 8N, and other premium coppers. The superior purity of PSC+ further minimizes distortion caused by grain boundaries, which exist within any metal conductor. Each PSC+ strand is insulated to prevent strand interaction, a major source of ear-fatiguing distortion.
NightBird Noise-Dissipation System
Carbon-based NDS greatly reduces noise contamination of the headphone amplifier ground plane.

Direct Silver-Plated Plugs
Direct Silver plating (with no intermediary layer of sound-degrading nickel) over a base of Tellurium Copper provides exceptional low-distortion performance.
