    Hmm, I'm officially intrigued.  I want to know more!

    99Neo has a very good passive isolation! 
    Meze headphones have some of the best isolation I tested, better than Ultrasone DJ1P isolation by a good margin.

    I've lusted for the 99's for quite some time. I figure they would compliment the nighthawks rather nicely, and would be a great "closed" back option. But the looks of them meant that for me, they would be resigned to only being worn at home.
    The Neo however looks like a headphone that I'd be happy to wear out of the house with. Very nice!
    Resistance is becoming yet more futile lol!

    Yes, Yes... 
    They are really cool in person though!

    The 99C and Nighthawk are less similar than you might expect. Meze is clearer, with more present treble. They both have excellent bass. With the Nighthawk's recessed treble, and a boost in mid-bass, it sounds thicker and much warmer.

    Overall, I prefer the 99C. It's balance of warm and clear, and gorgeous highs, is simply mesmerizing.

    Don't get me wrong, I did quite like the Nighthawks. Just like the Meze more. :cool:

    Also, the 99C is wonderful to wear out and about. I don't know what you're worried about there.

    Tried them at the recent Canjam and I find them perfect for heavy metal. Very tonally balanced. Nimble and spacious sounding without sacrificing much body!

    Thanks. My interpretation is that you think the 99's/99Neo's would be a wonderful compliment to the NH's! [​IMG]

    I actually strongly prefer 99C and 99N to Night Hawk or Night Owl.

    Don't know why people are so enthused by Night birdies headphones [​IMG]

    Yes, I feel the same way! The 99C were just too nice to take out to work, school, etc.

    These look great, and aren't as flashy. I just wish they would re-design the 2.5mm inputs so we can use aftermarket cables without modding the phones.

    Because guys like Rob Watts from Chord loves them[​IMG].  I think they sound glorious, and they are incredibly comfortable. Most people don't give them a chance to burn in past 150 hours, but that makes a huge difference with the NH's (whether you believe in burn in or not lol).
