Blue Dragon Cable for Audeze EL-8 Headphones V3
This Blue Dragon Cable is customized to fit and enhance the sound of the Audeze EL-8 headphones. It is a better than stock cable option at an affordable price.
The Blue Dragon is our entry level headphone cable. It is a neutral, very natural sounding headphone cable which is great for vocal performances. very good detail and not as warm and full-sounding as the Black Dragon. Great for Classical, Americana, or Country, where a more relaxed organic sound is desired.
It is a good fit if you want to improve the clarity and dynamics in your headphones and do not want to add coloration. Furthermore, if you do not want to tip the headphone forward or back, then the Blue Dragon is a wonderful choice.
Our Blue Dragon is also the best bang for the buck custom headphone cable on the market today.

Break in time aside, I felt these cables performed better than the good cables that came with the phones.
It was as if the Blue Dragon removed a very thin gauzy veil from the music. (I am also using Blue Dragon connector from the AK to the Soloist).
Now with a little break in time the music is definitely improved. There's a nice relaxed quality to the Dragon. I don't use any enhancements, like the AK EQ preferring to hear what was recorded as neutrally as possible. If anything, the Blus Dragons just get out of the way. I don't notice any coloration and nice presence.
For the money, these cables are a flat out bargain!
