The Blue V3 Oppo headphone cable is a customized version of our original Blue Dragon. This version is made specifically for the Oppo PM-1, PM-2 or PM-3 Planar Magnetic headphones.

The Blue Dragon is our entry-level headphone cable. It is a neutral, very natural sounding headphone cable which is great for vocal performances.

Quality You Can Trust

Most stock headphone 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 other issues in OEM cables can limit the performance of the headphone driver in terms of clarity and definition.

Dragon Cables are handcrafted from quality materials in Moon Audio's headquarters in Cary, North Carolina. All of our cables are created with ultra-pure, single-crystal silver and copper strands and engineered to provide the cleanest, most musical presentation. Our wire is void of impurities and crystalline boundaries, leaving nothing between you and your music.

Blue Dragon Sound Signature

The Blue Dragon is our value fullsize headphone cable. Using copper strands, it combines the neutrality of the Black Dragon with the clarity of the Silver Dragon at a lower price point. The Blue Dragon is a good fit for improving dynamics without adding coloration. Its calm and neutral sound make it a great place to start with premium cables.

Cable Design

The Blue Dragon V3 Headphone Cable has been designed to match the Silver Dragon V3 Headphone cable but with a high purity copper conductor using the Ohno Continuous Casting Process. The Blue Dragon V3 Headphone Cable has the same geometry structure as the Silver Dragon V3 Headphone Cable only it uses UP-OCC Single Crystal Copper conductors.

The Blue Dragon V3 is a good fit if you do not want to add coloration but want to improve clarity and dynamics in your headphones. In addition, if you do not want to tip the headphone forward or back then the Blue Dragon is a wonderful choice and is also the "best bang for the buck cable" on the market today.

The Sennheiser HD600 has been one of the best phones for classical music because of the smoother warm sound.  The HD600 is not as dark and laid back as the HD650 and so the neutrality of the Blue Dragon is the better fit for the HD600 signature. It is a great cable for a wide variety of music genres.  If you are using a very warm tube amp and a forward headphone, the Blue Dragon is a good choice to keep the sound signature the same.  The Blue Dragon V3 is also the most flexible of the full-size headphone cables and makes a good choice for headphones that use a single entry connection point like the AKG K702 and many of the Ultrasone headphones.

"I like the...Moon Audio Blue Dragon. There are numerous cable makers out there, many are good, but many more are just hobbyists with a soldering iron and a yen to be in business. With cables, the devil is in the details, I strongly suggest using cable makers with long years of experience and a good reputation.

If you have headphones with a hard-wired stock cable and would like to have them replaced, again, it is very important to find a reputable supplier who is very familiar and competent with this type of work. I'll happily recommend Moon Audio as one such supplier.", Tyll Herstens, Innerfidelity.com, February 26, 2013.

We also use the Blue Dragon V3 Headphone Cable for the Ultrasone, Sony Qualia, AKG Pro Series and any other headphone that uses a connector attachment system. This cable can also be hard wired to Grado's, AKG, and Audio Technica headphones too.

The Blue Dragon Headphone cable we use the same 4 x 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper with 7N purity 99.99998% as the main cable.

Each conductor is made up of a special varying size stranding geometry. The copper stranding is mixed with Kevlar stranding to reinforce the conductor making it stronger overall and less prone to failure due to the harsh constant flexing a headphone cable receives.

The conductors are then surrounded by cotton and then a layer of Teflon tape. The new version is now also shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection.

The Version 3 is quieter than the Version 2 with no microphonics. It is a balanced cable geometry that can be terminated for either single-ended or balanced configuration.

This cable can be configured in a variety of different ways. Please note that single-ended signal connection can not be converted to a balanced signal connection. As the grounds are tied in the single ended connector. Therefore, only pick this configuration if your amp has no single-ended connection outputs.

The blue dragon really adds to this setup by allowing the mojo to work its magic.

Great 4Pin XLR option for Oppo PM-3
I got this cable for my Oppo PM-3 headphones so I could plug them in to my Woo WA22 amp and they sound awesome.

The cable is very well made and the connectors are all quality. They seem to bring out the best sound in these headphones too.
