Blue Dragon V3 Headphone Cable

Availability: In stock

$165.00

Quick Overview

The Blue Dragon V3 Headphone Cable has been designed to match the Silver Dragon V3 Headphone cable but with a high purity copper conductor using the Ohno Continuous Casting Process.  The Blue Dragon V3 has the same geometry structure as the Silver Dragon V3 only it uses UP-OCC pure copper.

The Blue Dragon is a neutral, very natural sounding headphone cable which is great for vocal performances.

The Blue Dragon V3 is a good fit if you do not want to add coloration but want to improve clarity and dynamics in your headphones. In addition, if you do not want to tip the headphone forward or back, then the Blue Dragon is a wonderful choice and is also the "best bang for the buck cable" on the hifi audio market today.

The Sennheiser HD600 has been one of the best phones for classical music because of the smoother warm sound.  The HD600 is not as dark and laid back as the HD650 and so the neutrality of the Blue Dragon is the better fit for the HD600 signature.  It is a great cable for a wide variety of music genres.

If you are using a very warm tube amp and a forward headphone, the Blue Dragon is a good choice to keep the sound signature the same.  The Blue Dragon V3 is also the most flexible of the full size headphone cables and makes a good choice for headphones that use a single entry connection point like the AKG K702 and many of the Ultrasone headphones.

Moon Audio also recently added some specialized "Blue Dragon V3" cables for certain headphone models and brands.  See these links for more information:

Blue Dragon V3 Shure Headphone Cable, and the Blue Dragon V3 HD 700 Headphone Cable.

"I like the...Moon Audio Blue Dragon. There are numerous cable makers out there, many are good, but many more are just hobbyists with a soldering iron and a yen to be in business. With cables, the devil is in the details, I strongly suggest using cable makers with long years of experience and a good reputation.

If you have headphones with a hard wired stock cable and would like to have them replaced, again, it is very important to find a reputable supplier who is very familiar and competent with this type of work. I'll happily recommend Moon Audio as one such supplier.", Tyll Herstens, Innerfidelity.com, February 26, 2013.

Blue Dragon V3 Headphone cable for HD800 w/ Dual 3 pin XLR

* Required Fields

$165.00

This is the Blue Dragon Headphone Version 3 headphone replacement cable for Sennheiser HD-800 ,HD-650, HD-600 and HD-580 headphones and any other Sennheiser headphones that have the 2 pin connection system.

We also use it for the Ultrasone, Sony Qualia, AKG Pro Series and any other headphone that uses a connector attachment system. This cable can also be hard wired to Grado's, AKG, and Audio Technica, etc. etc.

Each conductor is made up of a special varying size stranding geometry. The copper stranding is mixed with Kevlar stranding to reinforce the conductor. Making it stronger overall and less prone to failure due to the harsh constant flexing a headphone cable receives.

The conductors are then surrounded by cotton and then a layer of Teflon tape.

The new version is now also shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection.

The Version 3 is quieter than the Version 2 with no microphonics.

Excellent Replacement Cable for AKG K701 Review by Frank
Quality

I have roughly 36 of the recommended 60 hours of break-in time on the cable; however, I've noticed more depth, separation and refinement to the music over what the stock AKG cable delivered. Build quality is excellent as well. I have to also mention that delivery was very fast and Nichole is very pleasant to communicate with - professional, courteous, and quick to respond.

Following the advice in Positive Feedback Online, I purchased the Blue Dragon cables with the HD-800 phones from Drew at Moon Audio. Quick production of the cable and speedy shipment. I'm now breaking in the phones/cables and the sound is spectacular. Thanks much, Drew. (Posted on 12/21/12)
"Cables from Moon Audio for sure!" Review by KevinWolff

My HD650's are ultra smooth with the Blue Dragon cable carrying RSA SR-71a amp magic to my ears. A wise investment indeed. Drew is cool as well. I was a pain. Ordered 1/4 plug for initial amp purchase (SCHIIT Valhalla), and 3 weeks later I returned it for the same cable with a 1/8 inch plug after returning the valhalla and settling on the sr-71a amp.

Even though I liked the first cable, I asked Ray Samuels if he thought the Moon Audio cables were the way to go or should I try something different with his amp. He wrote back and I quote "Cables from Moon Audio for sure." 'Nuff said.

Majestic! Review by Trilogy

I purchased the Moon Audio Blue Dragon V3 headphone cable for my Sennheiser HD800. Drew, from Moon Audio responded quickly to my messages and was delivered quickly to Finland.
The cable itself is an upgrade from the stock cable. Without the cloth stocking of the original, the Blue Dragon cable is much easier to handle and doesn't twist or loop so easily. The connectors look sturdy and the Furutech plug is just majestic (and heavy!). Cable feels light and does not have the rubbery surface some cables have, that would stuck on cloches and create microphonics (this cable doesn't). I haven't compared the new sound to the old one yet, but I feel the sound is more balanced. I noticed, that highs go even higher than with stock cable and soundstage seems more refined. I Will continue to burn in and listen to music.

Overall, Moon Audio's Blue Dragon feels like a quality product and if I am in need for more cables, I will consider buying from Drew again. (Posted on 12/21/12)

Pro900 + Blue Dragon…no more sibilance Review by dannybai

I really love the Pro900's, but the sibilance really deters me from listening to them. I paired them with the Blue Dragon cable and like magic, the sibilance pretty much is gone now. The build quality is excellent and I couldn't be more happier with how the sound just smoothed out. The bass has more punch and impact but the trebles are not fatiguing and sibilant anymore. Highly recommended for those who have the same issues with the Pro900's and I know many feel the same about the Pro900's as I do. (Posted on 3/26/12)
