I'll answer a question with a question: Why are audio cables always an afterthought? Why time and time again do headphones and audio gear that cost thousands of dollars always get packaged with cables that cost cents on the dollar to make? The bottom line is this - materials matter. And when the only connection from your high-end DAC or amp to your audiophile-grade headphones is a cable that is constructed with poor-quality conductors, faulty geometries, and improper shielding - I doubt anyone would reasonably think that you're getting the best performance out of your high-end investments. These often lead to bottlenecking the sound. Your audio cables should have the same care and craftsmanship that manufacturers put into their audio components and headphones.

What Are Dragon Cables?

You’ve heard the saying that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, right? Well, the same applies to your brand-new audiophile-grade headphones or other audio components. The weakest link, in this case, is your stock cable or the cheap interconnects the manufacturer threw in the box just to get you up and running. Why is the cable always an afterthought, when it’s just as important as the rest of your system? At Moon Audio, we use the best raw materials in our cables to unveil your music. We believe the materials matter and your audio cables should have the same care and craftsmanship that manufacturers put into their audio components and headphones. Audio cables are ultimately the connection to your music. The fact remains that cabling is often considered the last priority to that of the main product and a means to cut down the overall production costs. It’s as simple as that.

Generally, stock audio cables are manufactured with subpar materials, metals with impurities, poor geometries, and an overabundance of layers to make them look and feel like a fire hose. Inconsistency and lack of quality control in stock cables can lead to poor sound quality and a veiled sound versus what the musician intended for you to hear and feel from the music. Dragon cables are handcrafted with the highest standards and made to order according to your specific needs. At Moon Audio, we create a custom cable for you using the highest quality UP-OCC silver or copper conductors that can be manufactured. UP-OCC metals are void of impurities and are optimized for signal transfer and sound quality. We have one of the largest collections of audio and headphone connection options available online and we create limitless audio cable options depending on your specific gear and needs.

Materials matter. Copper and silver conductors can craft the signature and affect the overall tone of your music. If your headphones are too forward sounding for the kind of music you like to listen to, don’t worry – pairing them with a Black Dragon cable will bring out more warmth and create a music presentation that should counter-balance the troublesome higher frequencies of your headphones. On the other hand, if your headphones are too warm sounding, then pairing them with a Silver Dragon headphone cable will add more detail and resolution, plus tighten up the lower frequency response. There is always a perfect cable pairing depending on what sound signature you prefer or what music genres you listen to, we have audio cables to improve and enhance the sound quality of your headphones and audio gear. There may be some instances where you want uncolored sound, a more neutral and natural sound signature. In this case, go with the Blue Dragon. The Blue Dragon will lift the veil, clean things up, and improve detail but without tipping it forward or adding warmth.

The Dragon Cable Experience: We customize cables for virtually every pair of headphones on the market. From connectors to sound signatures, the possibilities are endless. Each line of our Dragon Cables has been engineered to bring out the best in headphones with specific characteristics.

#9: Black Dragon IEM Cable V2

Welcome to the next evolution in Dragon IEM cables. The Black Dragon IEM V2 Cable is a total redesign of our Black Dragon IEM V1 cable. We teamed up with JH Audio, one of the most admired and sought-after IEM manufacturers in the world, on the design of this cable. The Black Dragon IEM V2 cable features a stranded, silver-plated copper design that marries the sonic strengths of our Silver Dragon IEM cables and our copper-based Bronze Dragon IEM cables. What this means for you is great detail and resolution from the silver plus the full sound and enhanced bottom end from the copper. Compared to the V1 version, we find the midrange on the Black Dragon IEM V2 cable to be warmer without sounding too laid back, while maintaining the full sound spectrum and dimension. Most importantly, the powerful bottom end of the Black Dragon IEM V1 has been improved upon.

This new stranded, silver-plated copper design is different from the silver-plated tinsel wire used in the JH Audio stock JH cables. The purity and density of our conductors are far superior and much more expensive to design, engineer, and produce. You will be amazed at the sound quality improvements over JH Audio and other brands' stock cables. Level up to a Black Dragon IEM V2 Cable and take your IEMs to the next level! Compatible with all JH Audio 2-pin and 4-pin IEMs and many other brands.

#6: Silver Dragon Coax Digital Cable

The Silver Dragon Digital cable will provide plenty of detail and an open presentation. It will provide a more cohesive sound with very fast attack and tight bass. This cable is by no means bright but also not warm. It will provide you with the best digital transmission possible for your digital gear. The Silver Dragon is fairly flexible and makes bends fairly easily. Make sure to never kink a digital cable as it will introduce jitter. We are using the WBT Nextgen Pure Silver 0102AG connector. Contacts utilize passivated pure fine silver. The body is constructed with brass and then platinum plated to give a nice aesthetic appeal. The central contact assembly is made of Ultramid® and the negative contact uses Dyneon™. The barrel is comprised of brass with a shiny black piano lacquer finish. The Silver Dragon can also be fitted with Furutech BNC Rhodium over Silver plate BNCs.

The center conductor is a 99.998% Ultra Pure Silver 22 AWG Solid Core conductor. Wrapped around the center conductor is a solid FPE center core, this is one of the best dielectrics used. For shielding, the core is first wrapped in a 100% Pure copper foil shield, followed by a silver-plated copper 100% coverage braided jacket. Then a layer of Teflon tape followed by a secondary silver plated copper 100% coverage braided jacket. Finally, an outer jacket is then covered in Techflex for good looks. Terminations include RCA, BNC, and any other custom 75ohm requirement. The connector is treated with Caig Labs ProGold Conditioning Treatment to keep the silver from oxidizing and providing the best contact possible. I recommend cleaning your connectors once a year no matter what the plating of the connector is.  It will help keep the sound quality perform at an optimal level time and time again.

#5: Silver and Black Dragon USB Cables

There's an important distinction to make when it comes to audio-specified USB cables. Audio USB cables like Moon Audio's Silver and Black Dragon USB Cables are not meant for usual data transmission in the way that you would connect a hard drive to your computer. Audio cables do not need or utilize all the pins for data that standard USB cables utilize. They typically only use 4-5 pins for audio transfer, which is all you need. More pins mean faster rates and more data -  but more conductors and more expensive cables. If your Audio USB cable doesn't use 4/5 of the pins - there's absolutely no reason to have all those conductors driving up the price of the cable.

When we say that a USB cable is meant for audio transmission only, this means that the cable should only be used for connecting your source to a DAC or music streamer (just as an example). The only thing that should be transmitted through the cable is your audio data. You might ask, why would I get a cable that only does audio when I can get a stock USB cable that does everything? Answer: the same reason why audiophiles and music lovers buy a standalone DAC, or a high-end preamplifier or music streamer. The fact is that a standalone device or devices meant to do one thing, perform better than do-it-all devices. Better materials, better quality construction, and the fact that something was designed specifically for one purpose means the same thing for cables. In this case, creating and configuring a cable for specific USB audio needs means that it will do that job much better than a standard mass-produced cable made with subpar materials. Our Silver and Black Dragon USB Cables are some of our top-selling products year after year. We create cables for any and every USB connection type out there, and they also provide additional detail and resolution to your high-res audio. If your DAC, streamer, or even wireless headphones have a USB connection, then you'll want to check out our USB Dragon Cable for the ultimate performance in data transmission.


#4: Silver Dragon Interconnects

Next on our list is the Silver Dragon Interconnect. Fun fact: this was the first ever Dragon Cable ever produced! It won Absolute Sound Magazine's 2014 Product of the Year for it's category - referenced as a "David in a World of Goliaths." They compared it to cables 2-3 times the price and confirmed that it held it's own against all of them in sound quality and performance. The Silver Dragon V2 is our top-of-the-line silver-conductor based interconnect with a braided geometry and high-quality shielding. It's built for zero-interference, so you can be sure nothing else is getting in the way of you and your music. With added detail and resolution, the Silver Dragon interconnect completely unveils your music, allowing you to hear it with the utmost clarity.

Interconnect cables are used to connect devices that use line-level signals, and come in both RCA and XLR connector options. With this version 2, we completely redesigned the geometry to take our interconnects to the next level. We still use an 8 wire braided geometry made up of solid core 99.999% pure silver 26AWG, and we modified the braiding and added an external shield for further protection. More often, our customers are using our cables on PC Hi-Fi systems and Pro Studios where noise is an issue which is the reason we added this shield. The shield also adds more durability to the cable for runs on a studio floor. We produce the Best Value Silver interconnect cables on the market. Because we sell direct and build our interconnects in-house, there is no overwhelming markup. You pay for quality and craftsmanship. We see this as a win-win and hope you'll give them a try and agree. Our Silver Dragon Interconnects are found in studios and high-end home systems all over the world for a reason, and that's why it makes out top 5 Dragon Cable sellers year after year.

Do high-end cables make a difference? High-end audio cables use higher quality materials. Materials matter. Better materials mean better performance and longer life. The materials used in premium headphones and audio cables are irrefutably better quality than the materials used in OEM cables. This can translate to a number of improvements including better shielding, lower noise floor, natural dB boost, and overall improvement in clarity, soundstage, and definition of audio.

Do cables affect sound quality? They can, depending on the types of materials they use. Factors like shielding can legitimately affect the amount of interference and noise that the audio signal will be subjected to. Long cable runs can act as antennas and shielding is quite important. Materials like copper and silver conductors and the quality of those conductors will affect the sound signature of the audio. Oxygen-free conductors also sound different from cables with oxygen-laden conductors. There are many factors that can affect the overall audio quality of your cable. We use what is called UP-OCC. This stands for Ultra Pure Ohno Continuous casting. This is a process developed by Dr. Ohno of Japan. Conventional methods of extruding copper results in multiple and fractionated crystalline structure. Oxygen Free Copper (OFC) has a distinctive effect on your audio quality that some might find lacking. The OCC process uses a heated mold for extruding, whereas other processes involve a cooled mold. The cooling process in OCC takes place separately, resulting in larger crystal sizes and increased purity. So, from a materials perspective, the OCC process is far superior to OFC.

Are good audio cables important? Cables are the connection to your music, so having good audio cables is especially important to improve sound quality. Poor quality cables and poor connections can lead to noise, static, audio cutout, and much more, negatively affecting the quality of your music.

Are balanced cables better than unbalanced? Balanced cables are not necessarily better than unbalanced or single-ended. Again, it depends on the gear circuit design of the products in your sound system and how they are configured. To learn more about balanced versus single-ended, check out our guide HERE.

Why are there different Dragon Cable variants? Our Dragon Cables feature different metal configurations, each having different audio sound signatures when paired with your speakers or headphones. The Silver Dragon lends more detail and soundstage, making it a great pairing for warmer headphones. Black Dragon cables add more warmth and body to make them a great pairing for forward sounding and analytical headphones. Blue Dragon cables are a great value, improving the clarity, staging, and detail on any headphones. Lastly, the Bronze Dragon improves thin-sounding headphones and IEMs, warming and rounding out a flat signature. There are also USB, digital, interconnects, speaker, and power cables that are also handcrafted to your specifications. Each of these cable types have specific audio signature properties that can help to lift the veil of your music on any device and connection type.

Is copper or silver better when choosing an audio cable? Each has its own sonic properties that can positively or adversely affect your music, depending on the genre, headphones, or amplifier you are listening to. Silver is more conductive than copper but can also thin out your music if paired with a forward sounding headphone. Likewise, copper can fill out the low end and create a warmer and more musical presentation, which is great for non-bass-heavy genres. One is not necessarily better than the other, but there is a better option (of the two) depending on your system and the type of music you like to listen to.

What is sound signature? Every piece of gear in your sound system has a sound signature. Your DAC, the amp, your pair of speakers or headphones; they all have their own material properties that can affect the coloration or resonance of your music, altering the way it sounds from the original. The sound signature of a piece of equipment can be forward, warm, musical, or bright, just to name a few. To learn more about sound signatures, check out our guide HERE.

How do I compare audio cables? The best way to compare audio cables is to test them. A-B testing is a way of simply comparing one cable to another. Using the same song and audio gear, it will become easy to tell how the cables affect the overall sound quality and soundstage of your music.

How do I know if one audio cable is better than another? It really depends on your listening preference. Through an A-B test, if one cable brings out more sonic properties that are appealing to you, then that would be considered the best cable for you. It's important to understand that everyone hears differently, and what someone might consider better sounding might not be the case for you. That’s okay. The priority is figuring out what sounds best to you so that you can enjoy your music to its full potential. There is no right or wrong to this.

Are certain cables better for specific genres of music? Silver or bronze copper conductors can bring out specific qualities in your music that can either be complementary or adverse. It depends on what you like to listen to and how you like to listen. For instance, regarding classical music, some people like to listen with a Black Dragon cable, which lends a warmer and fuller presentation to for the performance. Others prefer a Silver Dragon, which opens the music and expands the soundstage, providing more detail and air to the individual instruments. The other factor to consider is the headphones or amplifiers you use, since each offers its own sound signature and will affect the music differently. There are generic rules to follow such as we typically do not pair Silver Dragon cables with forward-sounding headphones and Black Dragon cables with warm or darker presentation headphones (although there are always exceptions to the rule).

How does the material in the cable affect the sound? Materials like copper and silver conductors and the quality of those conductors will affect the sound signature of the audio. Oxygen-free conductors also sound different than cables with oxygen-laden conductors. Copper conductors are going to lend a warmer and more musical tonality to your music whereas silver will bring out more details and tighten up lower frequencies. There are many ways in which materials can affect the overall audio quality of your cable.

Can you measure if one cable is better than another? Without getting into subjective differences, there are ways to measure a cable’s shielding effectiveness and noise floor, as well as overall conductivity and signal gain. Better shielding and higher quality conductors will always result in better overall performance. There are objective factors that you can measure to determine if one cable is better than another. A great place to start is to determine the quality of the metal used for the audio cable. At Moon Audio, we use UP-OCC silver and copper, assuring the highest quality for your sound quality.
