Black Dragon Headphone Cable V2
The Black Dragon headphone cable V2 is a wonderful match for the Grado's AKG K7## series, Sennheiser HD800, Focal Utopia and many other high end headphones.
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.
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 (stock) 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 offices 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.
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 popular headphones. If you can't find the connection system you desire please contact us.
The wire is soldered to the connector with Cardas silver solder.

Very well done Moon Audio!
I enjoy listening to some Jazz and the notes from the upright bass were there but there was no authority behind them. I was a little disappointed. Then I discovered Moon Audio and read about the Black Dragon cable. It sounded like it was just what I needed, but would it work? I decided to give it a try.
I have had my dragon for a week now. That upright bass stands right out where it should be. The highs are still bright and clear, just a little easier to listen to, the music has more body to it and I hear little details that I didn't hear before.
Dragons are real ! This cable does everything it claims it will do. It has made my 400s sound much better. I am very happy that I decided to try it. Thank you Moon Audio.
