Quality You Can Trust

Most stock headphone cables are made of poor, ultra-thin conductors that work as a bottleneck for sound. Poor geometries, no shielding, rubber jackets, and a whole host of other issues in OEM cables can limit the performance of the headphone driver in terms of clarity and definition.

Dragon Cables are handcrafted from quality materials in Moon Audio's headquarters in Cary, North Carolina. All of our cables are created with ultra-pure, single-crystal silver and copper strands and engineered to provide the cleanest, most musical presentation. Our wire is void of impurities and crystalline boundaries, leaving nothing between you and your music.

Black Dragon Sound Signature

The Black Dragon is warm and smooth with a musical presentation. Copper strands enhance the body, shape, and immediacy of the music. The detail and expansiveness of the Black Dragon make it a flexible fit where a broad range of musical genres are played. It can also improve bass frequencies on bass-light headphones.

The smooth, musical quality makes it a perfect fit for headphones that tend to sound a bit edgy or bright. Despite its warmth, the Black Dragon does not have a laid back, lush sound. It is much closer to neutral, making it a very natural sounding cable.

Cable Design

We developed our own connection system in order to plug right in to these Ultrasone headphones. This creates a tighter connection and it improves the sound, clarity, and dynamics.

The cable is extremely smooth sounding with great low end and wonderful voicing. If you listen to a variety of music genres, this cable will suit your needs well. It is a little more rounded than the Blue Dragon with fuller sound and more bottom end weight.

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.

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.
