First time posting in a long time. I've been away from the headphone community for a few years, just enjoying my existing setups and focusing on other hobbies. Today I finally picked up something new, a NightOwl from Saturday Audio Exchange in Chicago. My short demo in the store impressed me, and I've been looking for something closed-back to bring to the office.

Unfortunately, on the theme of this thread at the moment, the stock cable conspired to ruin my evening once I got home. When I unpacked the new NightOwl I bought, I found that the tip of the left-side cable into the headphones was missing. So now I have to wait for my warranty claim to the processed before I can get around to enjoying these. Hoping to report back positive impressions soon!

Question... Who is still selling them? Right now, since Audioquest stopped producing em, I'm kinda weary that many of the used ones on sale here, ebay and elsewhere have prolly been through five sets of people before getting to me. I'm of the mind to give up on getting em due to the limited supply of new, open box and one owner sets left out in the wild .

I got mine from Audiogon, specifically the Music Room. The one I have was brand new, everything was in their original plastic bags, none were open.

Thanks for the quick response.. Hafta hit them up. I'm up in Seattle, and alot of the hifi joints here gave up on em because they didn't sell.

Saturday Audio Exchange in Chicago still has a few new and refurbished ones for sale, and they were going pretty cheap. Purchase price + shipping to somewhere in CONUS might be worth it, if somebody's having trouble finding one locally.
