Upgrade Your Audeze Headphones with Dragon Premium Cables
Here at Moon Audio we have a curated collection of some of the top brands in the audiophile industry. Audiophile headphones deserve a quality cable and we know a little something about headphone cables. We handcraft dragon cables for every brand we carry and we think Audeze headphones are so special that we created dedicated Premium headphone cables to pair with each of them.
One of our best-selling brands here at Moon Audio, Audeze, designs and manufactures planar magnetic headphones, in-ear headphones, and reference headphones for HiFi listening with luxury features. Audeze has set itself apart as a leader in planar magnetic technology and sound fidelity. Today, Audeze's continued innovation in planar magnetic technology in over-ear open-back or closed-back over-ear headphone formats has produced plenty of options for audiophiles of all experience levels and budgets. And they've been making great strides in the past several years to introduce the same technology to the gaming market.
When you're trying to squeeze out every last morsel of performance in your favorite pair of audiophile headphones, a premium cable makes sense. With UP-OCC single-crystal silver or copper conductors with 7N purity 99.99998%, our Dragon premium audio cables offer the same quality construction as our standard dragon cables, but with some enhancements.
We know that no two headphones are alike and everyone hears differently. Maybe you love details and want the most accurate sound reproduction so you gravitate toward analytical-sounding headphones. Or maybe you love bass and musicality so warmer-sounding headphones are your go-to. We took that into account and created three dragon cable lines, each with their own unique sound signatures and characteristics: The Silver Dragon, Black Dragon, and Blue Dragon.
We exclusively design our Dragon Premium cables for only the most creme de la creme headphones and we offer Silver Dragon Premium, Black Dragon Premium, and Blue Dragon Premium cables for Audeze headphones.
Silver Dragon Premium Cable
The Silver Dragon is our top-of-the-line flagship headphone cable. The Silver Dragon is designed to maximize the amount of detail, clarity, air, and instrument separation you get from your listening experience. We use only the purest UP-OCC silver available in our Silver Dragon Premium Cables. Silver is the best conductor and is more expensive to produce than copper, hence the Silver Dragon's status. Silver conductors are adept at pulling out "lost" middle and high-frequency sounds, so you get top-end detail and resolution and hear things that may otherwise be obscured.
The Silver Dragon sound signature is smooth and clean, not forward or bright sounding. We recommend the Silver Dragon for people who love to hear lots of detail in their music.
Audeze LCD-2 Open Headphones
Audeze's first headphone, the LCD-2 Open-Back Headphones have a smooth, inviting midrange with a tight, extended bass response and warm high frequencies. The full sonic potential of the Audeze LCD-2 is revealed when driven by an external headphone amplifier or integrated amp. The Silver Dragon Premium Headphone Cable will add more detail and top-end energy to the LCD-2's warm tonality.
Audeze LCD-2 Closed Headphones
The Audeze LCD-2 Closed-Back Headphones build upon the sound of the LCD-2 Open-Back headphones with a deeper and more controlled bass that's intensely powerful yet accurate and detailed when needed. As a warmer model, the Silver Dragon Premium Headphone Cable will add more detail and resolution to the top end and tighten control of the bottom end frequencies without giving up the wonderful Audeze bass signature sound.
Audeze LCD-3 Headphones
Audeze's older flagship headphone the LCD-3 Open-Back headphones delivers a dynamic and wide, enveloping soundstage that emotionally connects with you the artist and the music. It's got a powerful bass with a rich and engaging midrange. It's the warmest of all the LCD series headphones, thus the Silver Dragon Premium Headphone Cable makes the most sense on this model. It will tighten up the bottom end of the LCD-3 and add resolution without taking away the wonderfully emotive sound.
Audeze LCD-5 Headphones
The Audeze LCD-5 Open-Back Headphones is the flagship headphone of the Audeze lineup with a neutral-analytical sound. There's an emphasis on the mids and upper mids that make it well-suited for critical listening. If you enjoy an analytical sound then the Silver Dragon Premium Headphone Cable will compliment the sound signature of the LCD-5, but we also recommend our Black Dragon Premium Headphone Cable if you'd like slightly more warmth. It really comes down to what improvements or tonality you're looking for.
Audeze LCD-GX Headphones
The Audeze LCD-GX Open-Back Headphones combine the finest in sound quality with clear voice chat for the serious purist audiophile gamer. The LCD-GX's wide soundstage and audio depth will take your experience to the next level. For gaming, the Silver Dragon Premium is going to help bring out details and clarity so you don't miss a single footstep, gunshot, and audio effect. Now, if you'd like a warmer presentation for music listening we recommend the Black Dragon Premium Headphone Cable. It will add depth and definition to the low end making the music sound fuller and more intimate.
Audeze Maxwell Wireless Gaming Headphones
Audeze's newest gaming headset the Maxwell is a wireless pair of Bluetooth gaming headphones with a Playstation and Xbox version available. The Maxwell has an analytical sound signature that makes it a great choice for competitive gamers. With a single-entry headphone jack on the Maxwell, we recommend pairing our portable dragon headphone cables which are different than our full-size premium headphone cables as they are single-entry only. Pair the Maxwell with our Silver Dragon Portable Headphone Cable to enhance clarity and emphasize the tiny details to give you that competitive gaming edge. Remove the detachable boom microphone, add our Bronze Dragon Portable Headphone Cable and you've got a great pair of headphones for listening to your favorite music. The Bronze Dragon will add musicality to the analytical nature of the Maxwell.
Black Dragon Premium Cable
Now if you enjoy warmth and musicality, the copper conductor Black Dragon is going to appeal to you. The Black Dragon is a very neutral-sounding cable that's going to enhance the body, shape, and immediacy of your music for a more immersive sound. The Black Dragon provides a fuller presentation and more bottom-end weight to the sound.
Audeze LCD-X Headphones
The Audeze LCD-X Open-Back Headphones are one of the most neutral headphones in the LCD collection being well-liked among audiophiles, recording engineers, and musicians. The LCD-X is known for its clarity and fast, accurate dynamics. The Audeze LCD-X is sensitive enough to be driven by portable players and smartphones, but an external amplifier will produce better results. The earcups and earpads have been designed and specially crafted to offer firmness and acoustic balance. With more treble extension than the LCD-2 and LCD-3, we recommend our Black Dragon Premium Headphone Cable to smooth out the high-energy top-end of the LCD-X while tightening and controlling the bottom end.
Audeze LCD-XC Closed Headphones
Audeze LCD-4 Headphones
The Audeze LCD-4 Open-Back Headphones have an extremely deep and accurate bass response with an open midrange and treble. The Black Dragon Premium Headphone Cable will balance out the top-end sizzle while providing more musicality to the midrange.
Audeze LCD-24 Headphones | Limited Edition
The Audeze LCD-24 Open-Back Headphones is everything that the LCD-4 is with a more dynamic and engaging sound. They're lighter and more efficient to drive than the LCD-4 and Owner and Founder of Moon Audio Drew Baird, P.E.'s personal favorite. The Black Dragon Premium Headphone Cable will round out the sound signature and provide you with a more "I'm there" feeling.
Audeze MM-500 Headphones
The Audeze MM-500 Open-Back Headphones are great for critical listening and studio use with a transparent sound full of detail and energy in the upper regions. As an already highly detailed headphone, our Black Dragon Premium Headphone Cable will add more bottom-end weight and warm the lows and middle frequencies making your music sound fuller and vocals more emotive.
Blue Dragon Premium Cable
Aside from our Silver and Black Dragon Premium cables, we also make a Blue Dragon Premium Cable. The Blue Dragon is the most neutral-sounding of our dragon cables delivering you a clear, neutral, and uncolored sound. It will clean the sound without warming or brightening it. Think of the Blue Dragon as a wipe for your eyeglass lenses — Removing obstructions and making it clearer without altering your prescription.
