Why Upgrade your IEM Cable?
Most stock 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 issues in IEM cables can limit the performance of the driver in terms of clarity and definition. Our Dragon Cables are handcrafted daily from quality materials in Moon Audio’s Cary, NC headquarters. We strive to provide you with a custom cable solution that elevates your listening experience, leaving nothing between you and your music.
Three Standard Premolded Cable Options
A variety of connection options are available for your downstream connection such as the premolded option for extra durability, Moon audio has branded connectors such as the 3.5mm TRS, 2.5mm TRRS, 4.4mm TRRRS, and many other connection options.

Meet the Silver and Bronze Dragon MMCX IEM Cables
Each Dragon Cable has its own personality. Our cables are designed to improve headphone and IEM performance by fine-tuning the sound signature of your audio gear to better suit your personal preferences.
Silver Dragon MMCX IEM Cable
The Silver Dragon MMCX IEM Cable features eight conductors of 99.99998% UP-OCC stranded silver in each cable. As one of the purest wires that can currently be produced, it’s void of all impurities. You’ll experience an enhanced level of resolution and detail that’s a detailed reflection of the music with a bass that’s tight and well-controlled.
Silver Dragon Sound Signature
The Silver Dragon is our top-of-the-line flagship cable. The Silver Dragon is designed to maximize the amount of detail, clarity, air, and instrument separation you get from your listening experience. Silver conductors are adept at pulling out “lost” middle and high-frequency sounds, so you get top-end sizzle and hear things that may otherwise be obscured. The Silver Dragon is smooth and clean, not forward or bright sounding. Instrumentation is clear and distinct, especially in the treble ranges. We recommend the Silver Dragon for people who love to hear lots of detail in their music.

Bronze Dragon MMCX IEM Cable
The new Bronze Dragon MMCX IEM Cable uses eight conductors of 99.99998% UP-OCC stranded Copper conduction in each cable. Used in just the right way and proportions, Copper helps warm, expand, and strengthen sound from bottom-end instruments like bass guitars and cellos, as well as deep vocals.
Bronze Dragon Sound Signature
With a warm presentation, the Bronze Dragon strengthens the bottom end without becoming bloated. Bass guitar and cello are full and immersive, creating a more musical sound that's not too lush. The warmth and fullness of the Bronze Dragon create the muscle needed to round out a flat signature.
