NEW The Black Dragon IEM headphone cable v2 (version 2) introduces the next evolution in Moon Audio IEM cables.  It is a total redesign from the previous black dragon iem v1.


We redesigned this cable solely for the purpose of teaming up with JH Audio, one of the best, most admired & sought after IEM manufacturers in the world. This redesign was almost 2 years in the making and all elements of the cable were redesigned and improved.

Sound characteristics & design

When designing the black dragon iem v2, we looked for a way to provide the great detail and resolution of our Silver Dragon line, and still maintain the full sound & enhanced bottom end of our Black Dragon line. We also needed to embrace these improvements in a cost effective way so everyone can unleash their music with the dragon cables and their JH Audio iems.

This forced a new direction for Moon Audio in cable creation which included working with plated metals. We found that when we increased the quantity of plating to around a 15-18% ratio, we were able to maximize and apply both sound characteristics of silver and copper to the black dragon. We feel this enhanced the sonic attributes & characteristics of the black dragon to its maximum potential and we believe you will agree!

The V2 design is a stranded, silver plated copper design which marries all the sonic characteristics & strengths of our Silver & Black dragon iem cables. With some audio cables, adding silver plated copper can make the cable sound harsh in the top frequency range. This is NOT the case with our Black Dragon as the heavy silver plating provides a very smooth, detailed top end with a great sense of presentation. This is in large part due to the 15-18% ratio we landed upon during our design & testing phase.

We also found the midrange to be warmer & lush without sounding too laid back yet maintains the full sound spectrum & dimension. Most importantly, the powerful bottom end of the black dragon iem v1 has even been improved upon to our ears.  To reiterate: this new design is a stranded, silver plated copper design and not similar to the silver plated tinsel wire used in the JH Audio stock JH cables. The purity and density of our conductors are far superior & much more expensive to design, engineer and produce.  You will be amazed at the sound quality improvements over the JH Audio stock cables.

Redesign of the JH Audio connections & iem sockets

The cable connections and IEM sockets of the JH Audio 4pin connection style iems were also redesigned by Moon Audio. The Astell & Kern and JH Audio iems with the 4 pin connection style include: the Angie, Angie II, Rosie, Roxanne, Roxanne II,  Layla, and Layla II. This 4pin connection socket upgrade has improved the durability of the connections & sockets for long term use & enjoyment.

First, we improved the threaded locking section and the nut as we are now using anodized aluminum for durability and better tolerance. The male and female pins utilize a proprietary metal combination called ARCAP.  It is essentially a high yield copper based metal that does not contain iron so it is not magnetic. It also has very high tensile strength and it is resistant to chemical corrosion. This is very important for those of you who will use the cable and IEMs at the gym or on stage if you are in a band as it will be much more durable and resistant to flex failure from constant movement and/or wear & tear.

The pins now are also gold plated and the attenuator pod was improved to provide better tolerances and tracking. The improved markings on the cable help match left to right and the attenuators are now recessed to prevent them from being altered by accident. The pod shape was improved to a smoother shape and this is a new feature of all the overmolds.

3 standard premolded cable options are available.

1. a 2.5mm balanced 4 pole gold straight mini plug for use with the balanced output of the Astell and Kern players, RAL players & ALO amps. The entire body is molded to prevent the face of the connector to short to chassis ground. This will eliminate issues of ground shorts.

2. a 3.5mm straight 3 pole stereo single ended connection for use with most common portable devices.

3. a 3.5mm right angle 3 pole stereo single ended connection for use with most common portable devices.

Both of the 3.5mm connectors have extended necks to vanquish most portable devices that have a deep connector socket hole.

We will also offer custom termination options as usual in the future. The Premolded connections are available for immediate shipment, and custom terminations will be available in a few weeks.

In the future, we will also be offering a version with no Attenuator pod. This will be used when JH Audio converts all of there existing IEMs over to the new 4 pin design.

Now offering custom resistor options

We now offer a fixed resistor option for your Layla, Angie or Roxanne. Take a picture of your pod setting on your stock cable and send it in and we will closely match a resistor to your pod setting for a permanent voicing.

For much better matching: set your pod, send in your cable and we can build you a cable with a perfect match.

I have my bass at the neutral 12 o' clock mark and love the way they sound. If the Black Dragon V2 is supposed to marry the best of both the Silver and Black Dragon cables, does that mean it gives the Layla a V shaped sound signature?

I'm extremely impressed with the sound improvement over the original stock JH cable.

But in addition to sound quality, the improvements to design of the cable are nice touches.

The recessed bass screws, thinner and lighter weight cable, and more flexible ear hooks make this cable better in all ways compared to the original.

My only criticism is the Left and Right markings - the small L and R are hard to see, especially in low light.

The original blue and red markings for left and right were very easy to separate and made hookup to the ear pieces more obvious. (Posted on 6/24/2016)

NOTHING BUT WOW.Review by Woo Shin

Ok. How can one make this quality of $200 headphone cable?

I have used Samurai cable from labkable.

FOR ME, I would say this black dragon makes Layla into a beautiful lady, while Samurai cable focuses too much to become balance. Furthermore, while Samurai cable removed the bass controller for sound quality reason, Moon Audio made a beautiful piece of cable with bass controller. I can do nothing but applaud.

One little con for me was that the cable was way too thin. I LOVE THICK CABLES, ALSO VERY SAD THAT MOON AUDIO DOESN'T MAKE CLEAR CABLE.

Simply, if you have JH layla 1 bundle cable, just buy the black dragon. YOU WON'T REGRET.

I am so mournful that I spent about 900$ on my Samurai cable.

Drew did something right with this black dragon, I would say. (Posted on 2/25/2016)
Great Upgrade over stock Jh Cable!Review by Pablo

The Black Dragon is a solid upgrade over the stock cable in comfort and in sound for a little price!

It is much much more comfortable than the stock one and it is better made.

The sound with my Angie's became more clearer and the sound stage expands over the stock one, it loses a bit of mid bass but improves in clarity!

Great service and delivery was fast to Singapore. Cable is thinner than stock cable and comfortable.

SQ is improved over stock cable. If you are considering if this is worth it, I would say go for it.

Like others of you, I have been waiting for the aftermarket Moon cable for my Roxannes for all of 2015. The wait was worth it.

Of all the cables I have tried in various headphone applications, I must say this is the finest improvement over the stock cable that I have experienced with any pair of earphones.

I really love Drew's Black Dragon for my HE-1000's. Now they can really breathe.

How in the world did Drew come up with the V2?

The separation, THE SOUNDSTAGE, the bass box and clarity beyond belief.

Great Work, Moon Audio! (Posted on 1/9/2016)
All I Can Say Is WowReview by Chris

Drew has done it again with this cable. I've been anticipating a Moon Audio cable that supports the new JH Audio proprietary connectors for some time. So when this product was finally announced, I had to jump in immediately.

Its quite a feat to able to improve upon the sound of the Roxanne's, yet the result is considerably more lush and rich presentation from the Black Dragon than the stock JH cable.

The black dragon iem v2 has better instrument separation, wider sound stage, more clarity, greater bass and sub bass impact.

On top of the audio improvements, the build quality is superb - this cable is lighter and more flexible than the stock cable and the memory wire is quite a bit better as well.

I'm curious to see what Drew has up his sleeve with the silver dragon compatible with the new JH audio connectors drops too.

In the meantime, this Black Dragon cable is a great upgrade for the Roxanne. (Posted on 1/7/2016)

Nicely done Moon-Audio. This IEM cable is a significant step up from the JH Audio stock cable and worth every penny.

My Angie’s are now transformed with a richer, fuller and more beguiling musical presentation. (Posted on 12/31/2015)
Best Upgrade to My Roxanne!Review by Vincent

Wow, where to begin... as an entry level audiophile I have been waiting for this cable to come out for most of 2015 since I got my custom Roxanne.

I can say this is the best $200 to spend on an accessory for such an already top-tier IEM.

The cable's build quality is top notch. The right angled gold connection is think and built like a brick. The cable is twisted with the same pattern with the stock cable, with a pair of slightly thinner Y split wires. The memory wire is more sturdier than stock, which I really appreciate. The cable simply disappears when I wear it around my ears.

The improvement to the sound is very noticeable. The sound stage and instrument isolation is day and night comparing to stock cable. I used to feel the music is cuddled in a ball around my ears, now with the Dragon, I feel the music is everywhere! Expansive sound stage and precisely placed instruments are the game here. The revealing of small details is shocking to me sometimes, in a very good way!

I cannot have asked for more with this cable upgrade, well worth the money! Highly recommended if you own a Siren series IEM.
