The Black Dragon Portable Mini IEM V1 Cable is used for linking your portable audio devices when flexibility and a smaller footprint are required. The Black Dragon is made with copper conductors that lend a warm, musical sound to your music, with added bottom-end weight and a top end that is smooth but still detailed. Appropriate for most genres, the Black Dragon works especially well with Electronica, Dance, Pop, Rap, R&B, and other music where a big, bold presentation is desired.For setups that do not require a more flexible cable, see the Silver Dragon Portable Mini Cable V3, the Blue Dragon Portable Mini Cable V3 or the Black Dragon Portable Mini Cable V2. These cables are more robust and for connecting the highest end portable gear as well as connecting portable gear to home audio systems. A whole host of connection options are available to link up your portable audio pieces. If you cant find the connections you are looking for please contact us for custom options.
Minimum length of 1 foot required when doing any dual connectors like Dual RCAs
Most stock cables are made of poor, ultra-thin conductors with poor geometries, rubber jackets, and other issues that can limit the performance of your equipment.
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.
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 Portable Mini IEM Cable features a coaxial design utilizing a 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 26AWG center conductor for the positive leg. The center conductor is wrapped concentrically by a 99.99998% UP-OCC pure copper stranded 26AWG gauge conductor with 7N purity 99.99998%, and it features Kevlar reinforcing. 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.
This cable can be used with a variety of different connectors, both balanced and unbalanced, such as a 3.5mm TRS Mini plug, 2.5mm TRRS Balanced Plug, or 4.4mm TRRRS Balanced Plug. As always, we custom build this cable in house using high-quality Cardas silver solder.What is UP-OCC? UP-OCC stands for Ultra Pure Ohno Continuous Casting (OCC). This is not a material but a way of extruding silver and copper to prevent any impurities and fractures in the crystalline structure of the wire. The wire is drawn very slowly to cast as an almost perfect single crystal small diameter conductor. The resulting purity and the size of the cast wire makes a tremendous difference and there is less damage to the near-perfect cast state. We find this UP-OCC process produces a very clean and close to neutral sound in our copper- based and silver-based cables.
