Black Dragon Cable for Shure Headphones V2
The Black Dragon Cable for Shure Headphones will improve the detail, clarity and dynamics of your Shure cans.
We created our own molds or connection system in order to plug right in to the Shure Full Size Headphones. This creates a tighter connection and therefore further improves the sound, clarity, and dynamics of the headphones.
This cable directly connects to:
- Shure SRH1840
- Shure SRH1540
- Shure SRH1440
The 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.
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.
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.
Both the Blue and Black Dragon are not a laid back lush sound, they are closer to neutral, natural sounding cables. 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.
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.
I thought I would drop a line re my recent purchase of black dragon cables. Wow, what can I say everything was just unbelievable from the assistance in picking the gear, responses, delivery time. Customer service was far and away the best I have received online ever. The product is sensational, I was looking for the black dragon to address some cabling issues with my set up for the SHURE headphones, I was never expecting the sound. Sitting here listening to Electricity (Silk City) I am hearing instruments and vocals with much more clarity and depth. These cables are not inexpensive but the outcome is worth every cent, add in the customer service and you are really purchasing a premium product. Great job.
