Blue Dragon Headphone Cable V3
The Blue Dragon V3 is a neutral, very natural sounding headphone cable which is great for vocal performances.
It is a good fit if you want to improve 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.
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 has the same geometry structure as the Silver Dragon V3 only it uses UP-OCC pure copper. It is also the "best bang for the buck" custom headphone cable on the market today.
For example, the Sennheiser HD600 has long been one of the best headphones for classical music on the high end headphone market due to it's smooth, warm sound signature. The HD600 is not as dark and laid back as the Sennheiser HD650 and so the neutrality of the Blue Dragon V3 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 also 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 many of the Ultrasone headphones.
Moon Audio also recently added specialized "Blue Dragon V3" cables for Shure full size headphone models and the Sennheiser HD700.
"I like the...Moon Audio Blue Dragon. There are numerous cable makers out there...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 Hertsens, Innerfidelity.com, February 26, 2013.
This Blue Dragon Headphone V3 headphone cable can be a replacement cable for Sennheiser HD800, HD650, HD600 and HD580 headphones or any other Sennheiser headphones that have the 2 pin connection system.
We also modify it for Ultrasone, Sony Qualia, and any other headphone that uses a connector attachment system. This headphone cable can also be hardwired to Grado's, and Audio Technica headphones. If it can be done, Moon Audio can modify it!
Each conductor of the Blue Dragon V3 is made up of a special varying size stranding geometry. The copper stranding is mixed with Kevlar stranding to reinforce the conductor. This makes 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.
This most recent version is now also shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection. The V3 is also quieter than the V2 with no microphonics.
