NEW Black Dragon Premium Cable for HiFiMan HE-1000 Headphones. Drew recommends the Black Dragon Premium as his Top Choice for the HiFiMan HE-1000 headphones.

The Black Dragon Premium smooths out the high energy top end while tightening up and controlling the bottom end or bass and also makes the mid-range more musical.


* Required Fields



The difference between the Standard Black Dragon and the Premium Black Dragon are the connectors used on each end and a harder to work with higher silver yield solder. The wire is identical. When you are trying to squeeze out every last percentage point of performance, the Premium version makes sense. The Furutech Top Line connectors are quite simply the best made. And every point of signal saturation will make a difference. Is there a night and day difference between the sound quality of the standard and premium? No. Is the Premium the best of the best? Yes. These cables are meant for the cream of the crop headphones where every little thing makes a difference in terms of bring you closer to audio nirvana.

The Black Dragon headphone cable is the original black dragon and it uses 4 x 21.5AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper with 7N purity 99.99998%. It is a wonderful match for HiFiMan, Grado, AKG, Sennheiser and many other high end headphones.

Moon Audio also handcrafts audio cables for other headphone brands.  Please see these links for more information: Black Dragon V2 Premium HD800 Headphone CableBlack Dragon V2 HD700 Headphone Cable, & the Black Dragon V2 Shure Headphone Cable.

For the Black Dragon Premium, we use the Oyaide Rhodium plated 2.5mm mini plug on the headphone side.  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 tape. The new version is also shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection.

The wire is soldered to the connector with high quality silver solder. The default 1/4" Plug is the new Furutech CF-763. Furutech’s beautifully finished, beautiful sounding CF-763 connectors are the result of meticulous engineering and careful audition of various suitable materials. The CF-763 features an Nonmagnetic Rhodium-plated α (Alpha) phosphor bronze conductor and Fluoropolymer insulation for minimal impedance and a nonmagnetic stainless and carbon fiber finished housing for superior damping. 

For XLR connections there are 2 choices. The FP-601M(R) XLR which uses a Beryllium copper and phosphor bronze α (Alpha) Conductor: the body is a Copper alloy with PVDF Fluoropolymer insulation. The second choice is the top of the line CF-601M(R)XLR which utilizes an α (Alpha) Beryllium copper and phosphor bronze Rhodium-plated Conductor with Carbon fiber and nonmagnetic stainless steel housing. The Body is PVDF Fluoropolymer insulation with a Specially designed cable strain relief.

The cable is extremely smooth sounding with great low end and wonderful voicing. If you listen to any type of music then this is the cable will suit your needs. It is a little more rounded than the Blue Dragon with fuller sound and more bottom end weight.

About the cable, this was amazing such a big difference compared to the original stock cable. You can hear every detail.

Fantastic cable!Review by James
When I received the Black Dragon cable, I immediately replaced the stock cable and was blown away by the sound.

The top was controlled but extended, the bottom tight, and the instrument presence and separation was wonderful.

I highly reccommend this cable.

By the way I also use this cable on my HD800's and it is fantastic in taming the highs.

Thanks, Moon Audio! (Posted on 2/17/2016)
HE1000 using the Black DragonReview by Randy
I could not believe how much this cable improved the sound over the stock HE1000 cable. The sound stage came alive and the bass was tight compared to the stock cable.

I can't imagine ever using the stock cable as the sound was dull in comparison to the Black Dragon. I don't have the Silver Dragon to compare it to but I'm sure it is wonderful as well. (Posted on 11/22/2015)
