    Yup, that's exactly what I want to find out :wink_face:

    I'm sure they won't match perfectly, but I'm hoping it's close!

    @SkylarGray are the AudioQuest headphones no longer available at Best Buy/Magnolia stores? I had auditioned a NightHawk there once & was hoping to try out a NightOwl too... I don't see either on their website anymore. I also didn't see Audioquest on the CanJam NYC vendor list, so I won't see you there either....
    I gotta hear me some NightOwl!!

    Well I'll prabably getting Nightowl Carbons in next week so will leave impression. I have read it keeps Nighthawks tone while more extension in treble. It also comex with New velour pads and closed back for isolation. Just what I needed.

    How much will the closed back version cost and will the ear pads be available to purchase separately? I I can't wait to do a comparison between the hawk and nightowl, I only hope that if it does cost $700 it will be a upgrade and not a "tweak" to a ledgendary headphone.

    I finally was able to stop in and ask...Magnolia has a limited presence on the BestBuy website...they have their own, where the NightHawk is available (yes right now at the steal of $349) and the NightOwl is forthcoming, according to them.

    So these won't probably be anything for traveling? Thinking about sound leakage...

    Yea... i am thinking about the same too... as I do quite a lot of traveling throughout the year., as looking forward to nightowl as it's closed back... but then someone mentioned something about the sound leakage...?

    I use the Nighthawk everywhere, no complaints about leakage. I suspect the Nightowl will be fine as a closed headphone for leakage. When I need isolation I grab the IEMs.

    I am wondering this too.  I cannot have sound leakage as my mom can be moody when something annoys her.  Anybody know if these leak sound and how bad?

    Hopefully will be able to find a place to have a try today, just wondering if you know what's the best way to test sound leakage?

    I want closed nighthawk with ANC :wink:

    When should we expect reviews coming out?

    I would play music thru them at a level you usually listen at....then find a volunteer and place them on their head.
