Quick Overview

PFO Writer's Choice Award Winner 2012!

The Moon Audio Blue Dragon USB cable utilizes our single crystal UPOCC copper construction to provide you with the best possible digital bus transmission.  The Blue Dragon USB cable uses a 99.999% pure copper 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded copper conductors with a double layer shield to ward off outside interference.

Standard USB cables are not up to the task of large bit rate information.  Drew has optimized this cable for audio transmission of large High Rez files.  USB cables can make big a difference and the Blue Dragon is one heck of a bang for the buck cable.

The Blue Dragon USB cable is utilized to transfer digital audio information from your PC or portable iDevice to an outboard USB Digital to Analog Converter allowing you to enjoy your computer based audio in a home or portable audio system's environment. 

"By Far the Best Value in USB Cables...The Blue Dragon remains extraordinarily musical and does not suffer from harsh treble."-Andy Schaub, Issue 64

Great Bang For Buck Cable! Review by Peter K

Looking up many reviews on usb cables, I was happy to stumble upon the Blue Dragon. It's price was within my range with positive reviews and bonus was it came in small lengths which is great when you don't want excess cable around to keep it tidy.

The quality of the cable is great as is the sound. It has a nicer high end compared to the Audioquest Forest, the midrange is detailed and smooth, and the bass is where I heard the biggest difference. I was getting more bass with much better control.

If you are someone looking for a great bang for buck USB cable, then this cable is a great buy. If your speakers/ headphones are a bit bass shy then this cable might cure that. I reviewed this blue dragon with the HRT Music Streamer II+ with Swan M200 mkIII Speakers.

Cheers and happy listening! (Posted on 10/23/14)

I added the Blue Dragon USB cable to my Macbook Pro – Chord Hugo – Shure 535SE (reds) with Silver Dragon cable set up.

I thought I would try out this USB cable because I was hearing some harsh treble using the generic USB cable that came with the Chord Hugo.

Sure enough, the Blue Dragon cable seems to have resolved that slight harshness and has added a smoothness and naturalness to the sound. I recommend it. (Posted on 7/15/14)
For the price, hard to beat! Review by Blackpug

I have been very pleased with the sound of Moon Audio Blue Dragon USB. I have compared it to cables from Audioquest, Nordost, HiDiamond, and custom.

The Blue Dragon is closed to the Audioquest Forest cable in price. Both can be had for under $100. To me the Blue Dragon sounds better hands down. It is much more detailed and mellow (less harsh) than the Forest.

I will say both the Nordost and HiDiamond are more revealing than the Blue Dragon, and the HiDiamond has even better bass. Understand though that this comes at close to 2x to 3x the price of the Blue Dragon.

For the money, the Blue Dragon is a winner and should be considered against all cables in its price range and even above. (Posted on 4/3/13)
Blue Dragon usb Review by Brian

After months of looking to upgrade to a better usb cable I decided to give Moon Audio's Blue Dragon a shot. I was previously using a usb cable from a very well respected cable manufacturer and everything was fine with my setup.

Each time I listened to my music though it just felt like something was missing. After researching usb cables and talking to some folks online I was set on wywires usb cable until I was quoted a price...$900 for the length I needed! Wow...that is almost as much as what my dac cost! Since that was not in my budget I started looking elsewhere. That brought me to the Moon Audio Blue Dragon. After speaking with Drew a few times I knew this was the cable I have been looking for. I let the cable burn in for about 48 hours before I sat down the other night to really do some critical listening.

All I can say is "WOW!" This usb cable has exceeded all of my expectations! That finally found a usb cable that gives me that top end sparkle to the sound I have been looking for! Crazy how switching out a usb cable can make such a difference but it has. I will be switching all of my cables over to Moon Audio! (Posted on 4/14/12)
