Black Dragon IEM Headphone Cable V1 (2 Pin)
Baby brother to the award-winning Silver Dragon IEM cable V1, the Black Dragon will open up your custom IEMs and let them breathe easier. It's a light and flexible solution for on-the-go listening, making it easy to take your hifi experience anywhere.
The Black Dragon IEM cable has a warmer signature than the Silver Dragon and provides a musical presentation and soundstage depth. You will hear more clarity and instrumentation with great bottom end.
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.

The Black Dragon IEM is a coaxial design using a 7N purity 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded copper 26AWG center conductor for the positive leg. The center conductor uses the same Kevlar reinforcing as the other Dragon cables. The center conductor is wrapped concentrically by a 99.99998% UP-OCC pure copper stranded 26AWG gauge conductor with 7N purity 99.99998%.
The left and right signal cables run parallel to each other resulting in a very low inductance. Both signal jackets are polyethylene and the cable is extremely flexible yet very resilient and resistant to flex failure.
A variety of connection options are available for your downstream connection such as the mini plug, RSA/ALO, 1/4" , XLR and many others.
We custom build these in house to your connection specification. The cable can be used in either a single ended or balanced design. The wire is soldered to a connector using high quality Cardas silver solder.
Throw out that cheap stock cable and bring your Custom IEM's here to Moon Audio!

I paired this cable with my Jerry Harvey JH5 Pros and was completely taken back by the increased clarity, the lift in bass performance, all while maintaining a very wide sound stage and fantastic separation.
I would totally recommend this cable.
Improves midrange and base .Savant already has plenty of treble.
Cable itself is very sturdy and fits nicely over the ear.
Excellent sound, very well made.
My setup us Sony F887 -> ALO Audio silver LOD -> Pico Slim - > Westone ES5 and I can safely say this cable has made difference in the sound and I love the way my rig sounds. Wish I had bough this cable earlier .. I highly recommend the Black Dragon.
Amazing service and product quality !!!
It all started 10 days ago. I just got myself a pair of custom IEM, Heir 4A to be specific. i wanted to upgrade the cable and after some time reading reviews I shortlisted a few names based on the positive review and the customizable connectors. So on Friday, I sent a few emails.
I almost got an immediate response from Drew. He has been very helpful and recommended great options, offering to customize extension cables that were not proposed on the website.
Next Monday, I ordered my Black Dragon IEM cables and extension cables. Wednesday, I received a UPS alert on my mailbox... My order was on the way. Today, on my desk in Singapore.
The cables look and feel solid. The workmanship is superb.
Eventually why I chose Moon Audio over others that I contacted (I won't name them):
1) fast response from Drew
2) the recommendation was in line with my need. No push for the top of line, the more expensive product...
3) extensive customization options
4) reasonably priced
So... Strongly recommended. Fantastic experience, you won't regret it... Thanks again Drew !
