Silver Dragon V1 IEM Headphone Cable with JH16 IEM's

* Required Fields

$185.00

To hear Drew speak specifically about the IEM cables - fast forward to 18:00 minutes.

 

Examples of the IEM's this cable can be used with are: the JH Audio Custom molded JH16 & JH13 in ear monitors, Gorilla Ears, LiveWires Custom molded in ear monitors, Unique Melody Miracles, 1964 Ears, Ultimate Ears UE18 Pro and UE11 Pro and Westone Elite Series ES3X just to name a few. Recently, Moon Audio also created and launched the NEW Silver Dragon V1 IEM Shure headphone cable for the Shure SE535, SE425 and SE 315 headphones.

"Moon Audio's Silver Dragon line, specifically their IEM and LOD cables, are an essential component of my portable audio rigs. I use the IEM cables with my JH Audio JH-13 Pros, my reference (a sonic marriage made in heaven by the way) and the LOD cable on my iPod Classic and iPad2. I'd love to take credit for discovering these fantastic cables, but I have Jerry Harvey of JH Audio to thank for that. Now, when the founder and lead designer of your favorite IEM tells you to check out a particular set of cables, saying they enhance the performance of his product, it's advisable to follow his instructions.

If making deep connections with your music is important...products like the Silver Dragon cables can act as a conduit to that grand connection. I'm never giving mine up, and I recommend you check 'em out if personal audio is part of your listening experience."  Michael Mercer, Positive Feedback, Issue 64, November/December 2012

The Silver Dragon V1 IEM Fitear headphone cable is also now available for FitEar IEM headphones too and this same cable will also work for the Sennheiser Amperior, HD 25-1 and HD 25-SP but the cups must be flipped over.

The Silver Dragon V1 IEM is a coaxial design using a 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 26AWG center conductor for the positive leg. The center conductor uses the same Kevlar reinforcing as the other Dragon cables. The center conductor is wrapped concentrically by a 99.99998% UP-OCC silver plated single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper stranded 26AWG gauge conductor with 7N purity 99.99998%. Now that is a mouth full:)

The left and right signal cables run parallel to each other resulting in a very low inductance. Both signal jackets are polyethylene and the cable is extremely flexible yet very resilient and resistant to flex failure.

A variety of connection options are available for your downstream connection such as the mini plug, RCA, XLR and many others.

We custom build these in house to your connection specifications. The cable can be used in either a single ended or balanced design. The wire is soldered to a connector using high quality Cardas silver solder.

"Drew, I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with this cable on my new Freqphase JH Audio 13's. The improvement to the clarity of these new phones was only magnified by this cable. 
It did so without altering the tonal balance, and added a sense of refinement to the sound. 
They are not floppy flexible like some others but they are perfectly manageable and don't tangle or spring back at you when coiled like other cables I've tried. 
Well done. "(Posted on 12/6/12) Todd R.

Silver Dragon V1 IEM has taken my JH13's to a NEW level! Review by Jim B

I ordered a Silver Dragon IEM cable from Moon Audio for my JH13's. Originally, I ordered it because the JH13's came stock with a silver cable, so I chose the Silver Dragon to be consistent.

I have to say that I am normally not a fan of silver cables. But the Silver Dragon is definitely an exception. It has taken my IEM's to a new level.

After reading Jerry Harvey's comments, I can confirm that I hear what he states as being "a +3db increase in input sensitivity across the entire frequency range."

The most noteworthy improvement to me though is the increased high frequency detail while being less fatiguing. In case you couldn't tell, I highly recommend the Silver Dragon IEM cable. (Posted on 4/16/14)
JH16 and Moon Audio cable Review by Milan Ambra

I would like to give you an update on my JH16 and Moon Audio Silver Dragon V1 IEM headphone cable.

Moon Audio Silver Dragon IEM cable...I was a little worried, that it will be a little microphonics, because is not as soft as original cable. That's not the case at all... once you route the cable properly behind the ears.
I was listening JH16's from 3 sources. Directly from Macbook Pro and iPod classic, then via Fostex HP-P1 and iPod classic. First time I used original cable and listened few songs multiple over and over again, then I
switched the cables to the Moon Audio Silver Dragon.

Believe or not, switching between the cables makes more difference for me than listen iPod with or without Fostex. I never had that feeling before but that sound somehow reminds me when I was young and first heard Revox G36 reel to reel tube tape recorder.

Now if I compare both cables...
BASS on MA about the same level as OEM, cleaner, faster (on OEM has echo like charakteristic), fuller (sounds more analog then digital) MIDS, TREBLE have higher levels than OEM, much cleaner, faster airy, better depth..instruments are more spaced out, you can tell better what instrument is louder and when plays in louder or softer volume, vocals closer to me, you can hear articulation better, better stereo effect HIGH tones..I can hear now what was muted and much cleaner, it creates more stereo effect, now I can hear reverberation of cymbals.

There was even bigger difference after I switched back from Moon Audio to the original JH Audio stock cable, the sound collapsed with the JH stock cable and it was muddy and the bass which bothered me before was back plus the volume clearly dropped down. I definitely love my Moon Audio Silver Dragon V1 IEM headphone cable. (Posted on 1/9/14)
Hard to believe a cable can make this big a difference! Review by Jeremy L

I have owned a set of JH Audio 13 Pro CIEMs for around 6 months now. One of my issues with them was that I could not find a good iPhone cable, without sacrificing sound quality. It occurred to me that most cables made for IEMs were, in fact, afterthoughts. I have literally spent hundreds of $$ trying to get the right cable...

JH Audio sells several "vanilla" cables and also a cable with an iPhone remote+Mic module...but the remote cable was a noticeable downgrade in quality, as were several other cables I tried, including ones from Ultimate Ears and a set from China.

Another issue was that after a few cable swaps, it was very obvious that the actual 2-pin connection into the IEM's themselves was not designed for every other month swapping...

On another search for a good cable I came across the link on JH Audio's site to the silver dragon v1 iem headphone cables, and I found the solution in these adapters and the Moon Audio system.

Now I can leave my JH13's permanently cabled and simply switch out the moon audio iem adapter set, based on whether I am connecting to my Centrance HiFi-M8's balanced RSA output, my iPhone or Fiio 17 mini jack, etc.

I didn't realize it at the time of order either, but a recable with the Silver Dragon v1 iem headphone cable was a huge upgrade in sound quality over the stock (non iPhone, good quality) JHA cable. WOW!

If my CEntrance gets me 100 points better sound than a straight iPhone DAC, then the Moon Audio cable setup, even with the Mini XLR inline, gets me 30 to 50 extra points, Punchier bass and much better imaging.

Wow. I would add that I believe you really want a foot of cable or more for the adapter. A half foot puts the weight of the XLR's too close to the terminations, and that's too much too close.

Now, in addition to this, Drew also does custom stuff, so making me up a custom, high quality cable I can attach an iPhone mic control to is also in the cards.

If you spent over $1,000 on your cans or IEMs, you'd be crazy not to get a Moon Audio v1 iem headphone cable right now... For big audio improvement and fantastic flexibility...Seriously.

Well done, Drew

I am using the cable with my Ultrasone IQ and right out of the box I found it to be a big improvement compared to the factory cable which is not bad but by far not as good as the Silver Dragon. The biggest improvement to me is the sound stage and the clear definition the cable brings to my Ultrasone IQ IEMs.
Even though this cable is no bargain, I believe it is worth the price and I will have a lot of "good music" with it. (Posted on 11/25/13)

I'm use this cable with my JH16. It is every thing better than the original cable from JHA, The high range and middle range perform more clear, more laudly, and more fast. And low range did not be killed, still deep, strong, and fast response. Great one, thanks Drew. (Posted on 11/12/13)

Remarkably musical and detailed Review by Raphael

Picked up a Peachtree Deepblue Bluetooth speaker in late July 2013 - impressive even in Bluetooth. Connected my iPhone -- Rdio, Pandora, etc. -- with an HRT istreamer that I use in the office. There was some improvement but not what I thought it could produce. So, just before heading out on vacation, I ordered the Moon Audio's Silver Dragon IEM cable. Ran it for 24 hours. With the Silver Dragon, the stage depth, mid-range, and bass and upper frequencies were substantially improved. However, there was some splashy upper frequency detail. Ran the system frequently over a two week period while on vacation and it finally broke in. Now this Peachtree-HRT-Silver Dragon system is not equivalent to my Rowland pre-amp-Rowland mono blocs-Basis-Avalon system but an impressively musical and pleasantly detailed system for a reading or other room. The Silver Dragon V1 IEM headphone cable brings it all together. (Posted on 8/30/13)

After a lot of research, I ordered the Silver Dragon V1 IEM cable last week for my Westone earphones, and the cable arrived today. Initially, I was surprised by the awesome customer service prior to my order. I just wanted to thank you for the quick turn around time and the absolutely wonderful product. Although playing directly off of an IPod, I could instantly hear the difference compared to the stock cable. This cable is worth every penny! The cable lays perfectly and feels great. Drew, thank you for providing such incredible integrity in a product; not easily found in companies these days. (Posted on 6/25/13)
Major improvement over stock IEM cable Review by Byron Santo

My first experience with the Silver Dragon IEM cable was with pre-recorded music. I immediately noticed an increase in volume compared to my JH16 Pro's IEM cable. I also noticed a clarity that exposed microscopic details in the mix.

My ultimate experience was an actual gig. The Silver Dragon IEM cable and JH16 Pro combo reproduced all of the tonal variations and dynamics in my signature 6-string bass.

For the first time in a live performance, I was able to hear all of the subtle nuances in my playing with 100% clarity and detail. (Posted on 5/14/13)

The Silver Dragon IEM cable works flawlessly with my JH16 Pro's whether I'm driving them directly from iPod, from my Ray Samuels SR-71B or from iBasso D12 "Anaconda".
It has flawless tonal balance and really opens up the sound of the JH16 Pro's, giving them almost HD800-like soundstage and fluidity.
I couldn't imagine listening without it. The bass sounds fantastic. (Posted on 11/5/12)
