Black Dragon Premium Cable for Audeze Headphones V2 by Moon Audio

NEW Premium Custom Headphone Cable for all Audeze Headphones: LCD-XC, LCD-X, LCD-2 and LCD-3. Drew recommends the Black Dragon V2 Premium as his Top Choice for the LCD-XC, LCD-X or the Beyerdynamic T1 with the detachable connector mod.

The Black Dragon V2 Premium smooths out the high energy top end while tightening up and controlling the bottom end or bass and also makes the mid-range more musical. The LCD-X and LCD-XC have more top end energy than the LCD-2 and LCD-3.  For the Audeze LCD-2 and LCD-3 headphones,  Drew recommends the Silver Dragon V3 Premium Headphone cable for Audeze.

The Black Dragon V2 headphone cable is the original black dragon headphone cable. It uses 4 x 21.5AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper with 7N purity 99.99998%. It is a wonderful match for the Grado, AKG, Sennheiser and many other high end headphones.

Moon Audio also handcrafts audio cables for other headphone brands.  Please see these links for more information: Black Dragon V2 Premium HD800 Headphone CableBlack Dragon V2 HD700 Headphone Cable, & the Black Dragon V2 Shure Headphone Cable.

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 also shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection.

For the Black Dragon V2 Premium version, we are using the Furutech FT-610 connector. Furutech’s beautifully finished, beautiful sounding CF-H800 connectors are the result of meticulous engineering and careful audition of various suitable materials. The FT-610 features an α (Alpha) phosphor bronze conductor and Nylon+Fiberglass 15% insulation for minimal impedance and a nonmagnetic stainless and carbon fiber finished main body and nonmagnetic stainless end ring for superior damping. The Pins are Nonmagnetic Rhodium-plated α (Alpha) Phosphor bronze conductors.

The wire is soldered to the connector with high quality silver solder. The default 1/4" Plug is the new Furutech CF-763. Furutech’s beautifully finished, beautiful sounding CF-763 connectors are the result of meticulous engineering and careful audition of various suitable materials. The CF-763 features an Nonmagnetic Rhodium-plated α (Alpha) phosphor bronze conductor and Fluoropolymer insulation for minimal impedance and a nonmagnetic stainless and carbon fiber finished housing for superior damping. 

For XLR connections there are 2 choices. The FP-601M(R) XLR which uses a Beryllium copper and phosphor bronze α (Alpha) Conductor: the body is a Copper alloy with PVDF Fluoropolymer insulation. The second choice is the top of the line CF-601M(R)XLR which utilizes an α (Alpha) Beryllium copper and phosphor bronze Rhodium-plated Conductor with Carbon fiber and nonmagnetic stainless steel housing. The Body is PVDF Fluoropolymer insulation with a Specially designed cable strain relief.

The cable is extremely smooth sounding with great low end and wonderful voicing. If you listen to any type of music then this is the cable will suit your needs. It is a little more rounded than the Blue Dragon with fuller sound and more bottom end weight.

The proof is in the hearingReview by Donald Scarinci
I replaced the stock headphone cable on my Audeze LCD-XC with a Black Dragon and the difference is night and day.

Why? It’s a $400 headphone cable on a pair of $1700 headphones so who would ever have thought it could make any difference other than to make me feel better that I'm not settling for the stock cable?

There might be a scientific or logical explanation that a headphone cable can make a subtle change in the sound of the headphones, but I can’t think of any explanation that makes sense for this. The improvement the Black Dragon makes on the LCD-XC is dramatic out of the box even before one minute of burn in.

I know the subject of cable swapping is controversial for audiophiles & people can debate it and study it all they want, but they can’t argue with their ears! Even if you think I'm crazy, if you own the Audeze LCD-XC, the more than reasonable price of the Black Dragon gives you nothing to lose and a lot to gain by trying it.

Extremely pleased with the improvement this cable makesReview by Carlo
The cable arrived very quickly to France. It made a huge difference to the sound on my Audeze LCD-X. Combined with the Hugo / AK240 things just got better.

These cables, significantly changed the sound for the better, highly recommend them to get the best from the equipment. Drew as always was helpful and honest with the advice he gave….I am a cable convert ! and have just bought cables for my Shure SE846, AKG K812 & Sennheiser HD-800…

Maybe at some point I will send Drew my Fostex TH-900 to re-cable as well, but for now I am just enjoying the heightened experience. Great work and great products. Thank you! (Posted on 2/11/2015)
Great cable and serviceReview by Jeff
I got this for my Audeze LCD-3. I wasn't unhappy with the stock cable, but like most in this hobby, I always want more!

I searched for cable upgrades and Moon seemed to be the consensus choice. Just got these and already hear improvement.

From experience, I know that burn in is real, so they will improve. But using my own personal test tracks, A/B testing, the sound is immediately more stable and fuller. It easily meets expectations and on top of that, the service here is great.

Drew was very helpful. I am not as knowledgeable in this field as many and he patiently explained my options and got me exactly what I needed. I would certainly buy from Moon again. (Posted on 11/11/2014)
