The Black Dragon cable for Audeze EL-8 headphones is a wonderful match for Electronica, Rock 'n Roll, Pop and R&B or anything whereas you desire a fuller, more pronounced sound with good bottom end weight. The Black Dragon is extremely smooth sounding with a warm tonality and similar in nature to the EL-8 driver sound signature.

It is not a laid back lush sound, it a natural sounding cable. The Black Dragon is very smooth and musical and that is the best way to describe this cable. It is perfect for a headphone that can tend to sound a bit edgy or bright and its a great addition to improve the bass frequencies on a "bass light" headphone.


* Required Fields



The Black Dragon cable is extremely smooth sounding with great low end and wonderful voicing. It will also remove the veil from all headphones just like the Silver Dragon.

Most stock headphone cables are made of poor ultra thin conductors that work as a bottle neck for the sound. Poor Geometries, no shieding, rubber jackets and a whole host of other issues by OEM (stock) cables can limit what the headphone driver can produce in terms of clarity and definition.

The Black Dragon offers a great well rounded sound that suits most genres of music. It is a little warmer than the Blue Dragon with fuller sound and more bottom end weight. It is perfect for a headphone that can tend to sound a bit edgy or bright and its a great addition to improve the bass frequencies on a "bass light" headphone.

The Black Dragon can by used not only as a detachable cable for many varieties of headphones, but it can also be used to hack your headphones. We can "hard-wired" to just about any headphone such as Grado, Sennheiser or AKG. You can also upgrade your exisiting headphones that have detachable cables with our Black Dragon. There are many connections to a variety of headphones to choose from on the menu above.

We recently added some specialized "Black Dragon headphone cables" for certain headphone models and brands: the Black Dragon Premium HD800 Headphone CableBlack Dragon HD700 Headphone Cable, & the Black Dragon Shure Headphone Cable.

We use 4 x 21.5AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper with 7N purity 99.99998%. This means more music, clarity and sound quality gets to your ears as purity in cable construction, cable design and quality of materials make a noticeable difference in the sound quality of your headphones.

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 tubing. The new v2 version is now also double shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection.

The Headphone connectors are soldered directly to the conductors of the cable. The splicing method used by other cable companies using a stock cable's connectors is a poor method. We have developed many of the hard to find connection options utilizing plastic injection molded connectors. Great expense has been taken to bring as many hard to find connection systems for the most populat headphones. If you cant find the connection system you desire please contact us.

The wire is soldered to the connector with Cardas silver solder.

Big Fan of the Black DragonsReview by musicmac
Yes, it's musical... Yes, it adds fullness to the overall sound and tightens up the bass... Yes, it provides a nice smooth treble range... I'm a big fan of the Black Dragons and it pairs nicely with the Audeze EL-8 Open... Great synergy with this headphone! My favorite copper cable so far for this headphone. This is a significant upgrade to the stock cable and beats another major brand's copper cable. and this is out-of-the-box... can't wait until it is broken in...

Excellent service from Moon Audio... I thought I would be waiting a week+ for this cable... shipped out the next day after ordering... these folks give great service! (Posted on 3/23/2017)
