Our values are grounded in the emotional experience of music.

Whether you're a music lover, audiophile, or musician, we want to deliver those emotional experiences and bring you closer to your music. Our Dragon Cables are handcrafted from ultra-pure, single-crystal silver and copper to provide the cleanest and most musical presentation. After all, when it comes to high-end audio, less in the signal path is more.

Silver Dragon: Detailed. Clear.

Black Dragon: Warm. Smooth.

Black Dragon Audio cables are made with the highest grade copper wire (99.99998% purity) to enhance music's body, shape, warmth, and immediacy. Black Dragon provides a natural boost to the low end for a musical presentation.

Customers marvel at how Black Dragon cables can solve a headphone's sound signature and musical challenges.

Blue Dragon Cable

Blue Dragon: Calm. Neutral.

Blue Dragon Cables perform a bit like the Silver Dragon and Black Dragon at a friendlier price to help beginners and the budget-conscious. The Blue Dragon is very neutral with added clarity, making it a high-value introduction to the sonic benefits of high-end cables.

Some Blue Dragon customers never level up to Silver or Black Dragon while others become hooked and continue fine-tuning the sound of the music they love.

Bronze Dragon Cable

Bronze Dragon: Warm. Musical.

Bronze Dragon IEM Cables were designed to fill-in the sound signature of older 4-pin IEMs, adding warmth and rounding out the lower register. Bass guitar and cello become full and immersive, creating a musicality that's not too lush.

Customers relish a more immersive sound, hearing a new fullness in a previously flat sound signature.
