Black Dragon IEM Headphone Cable V1 (2 Pin)

In stock

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.

Dragon Audio Cables

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.

Cable Design

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!

not what I expected
Fast shipment.Thanks. I found the cable too stiff and the 4.4mm jack too big for my DAP. No right angle jack option was available.

Black Dragon, Great Sounds
Great warmth and depth. Using on the MD Noble X IEM. Great clarity. Top notch build quality. Would be better with a more pliant feel, but great sounds are what it's about.

Awesome cable
At first I was a little nervous about the price, however after receiving my Black Dragon cable it all made sense.

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.

Great Cable -Great service
Upgraded my Noble Savant with Drew's Black Dragon V1 cable,
Improves midrange and base .Savant already has plenty of treble.
Cable itself is very sturdy and fits nicely over the ear.

Good Upgrade
Great upgrade, I am pleased with the sound of my 1969 Ears with the black dragon, the low end is much better and the music is very clear even coming from an IPhone through an Allen& Heath ZED 10fx.

Drew was very helpful in deciding which headphone cable suited me best and from then it was only a short time before it arrived at my home in the UK.

Excellent sound, very well made.

Thank you

Solid Product with exceptional sound
Got the Black Dragon V1 IEM cable to replace the stock cable on my Westone ES5 CIEMS. This has opened up the ES5 way more than the stock cable and there is a good space around the vocals and pushed the bass up a bit in a good way. Since i love the sound of ES5 , these cables have not colored it but enhanced it .. The only gripe ( which is if I am really picky) is that the cable is way stiffer than the stock cable and had to buy Pelican 1010 case to carry it ..

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 !!!
I just received my order today... Wow...

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 !

Tried both black dragon and silver dragon
I tried both IEM cables, and prefer the silver dragon. The sound is just smooth, musical and great overall.
