I am not an audiophile but love my music and HD gadgets. I have an astell kern jr, and my iphone 7 plus. I pair that with a bose qc35, senheiser i80, or bose wireless sports. I had a dream of owning one open back can, as they are believed to sound better and give a broad sound stage. With a bit research and help from headphone zone I stumbled upon Audioquest nighthawk in my budget of 50k.
Though it took 10days to arrive becuz of some transitional delay, but I fall in love with the beauty at first sight. Liquid wood cups and 3D printed grill... oooh. Looks peculiar but attractive.
Sound is very musical and soulful. All genres of music sounds great. What a sound stage. Zakir Hussain 's tintaal concert sounded happening in my room. Even movies sounded like in a high end theatre.
Comfort wise I can use and forget for hours, no discomfort at all.
Paired with dragonfly dac( got it as a combo from headphone zone), even my iphone 7plus became super sounding. I hope after some burn in my nighthawk will fly even higher.
Only gripe, being open and non foldable, it can't travel with me.
