Black Dragon Headphone Cable V2

"Excellent cable. The veil over the music was lifted. There is more clarity, detail, air, and space around each singer or instrument. Well recorded music and high-resolution files are fantastic. Completely satisfied. Highly recommend." -Bryon

The Black Dragon V2 is extremely smooth with an enhanced low end and voicing. It adds a detailed warmth to high-end headphones, making it an excellent match for Grado, AKG K7##, Sennheiser HD800, and Focal Utopia.

I ordered a Silver Dragon v3…Macro and micro detail retrieval were kicked up more than just a couple of notches with this upgrade." -Erik

The Silver Dragon Headphone Cable Version 3 is our Top of the Line Headphone Cable.
