Blue Dragon Headphone Cable V3
The Blue Dragon headphone cable 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.

I live in Japan, but I was surprised to receive an order immediately. Recommended for those who are new to recable.

Gotta admit I'm not a big headphone guy and don't have a lot of cash to get the big buck rigs. I got a good deal on a HiFi Man HE400S that has a decent cord with it. Wanting to see if it could be improved on I got the Blue Dragon and am quite happy to say they performed exactly as you said. There is more "there" and detail in the sound. Missing one star due to stiffness only. Thanks for the support, expediency in production and delivery.

I also equipped my dt1990 with a blue dragon cable. While there was an improvement, it was nowhere near as dramatic as with the hd600, because its stock cable was already seemingly high quality.
I'm under 30, so my ears are still pretty good, heres is what I hear differently with this cable on the beyerdynamic dt1990, I won't bother describing the hd600, because it's just a world of difference, everything is better, no need to go into any explanation or detail there:
- The first thing noticeable with the dt1990 is that you can hear the room of the music, the atmosphere. I didn't get this with the hd600, but I do with the dt1990s. It just shows what a fantastic driver Beyerdynamic put in there. With the beyers, the cable adds a "thickness" to the sound while still adding clearness and transparency; yes I couldn't imagine adding thickness do the sound without taking away from transparency either before.
- The 10khz treble peak which was upsetting to my ears on some tracks is not upsetting anymore. The headphone is still bright and the peak is definetely still there, but the highs are just soo clean and clear now that the treble peak is not upsetting. I almost wish there was more treble, it's just such clean treble idk how else to describe it. It just makes me want to listen louder and louder because it is never upsetting, just smooth, clear and clean, amazing.
- Better detail, with this you can hear more things happening without going into tryhard mode. Simple as that.
- Better/Wider Soundstage, now this is a point which seems to raise the most eyebrows with "cables don't matter"-critics. Here is what I say to them: An object appearing to be near or distant in the soundstage is a sonic property. This sonic property is quite minute, especially for objects close together in the soundstage. If you have more detail, you can better here these sonic properties. This cable preserves the sound better than the stock cable, thus preserving more detail. If you can't here it, your headphone, your amp/dac, your source material or your ears are just not good enough. Enough said.
That said, the soundstage becomes more 3-dimensional or speaker like because the difference between near and far objects is more apparent. I should note here that I did not get much of this soundstage improvement on the hd600, maybe because the driver isn't as fast and/or it's harder to reveal soundstage differences in an already narrow soundstage.
If your headphones have a cheap cable (like the hd600) or your headphones have a very good driver which can benefit from a high quality cable, the blue dragon will make you happy.
Oh yes; I bought a black dragon for the dt1990s first, which didn't complement it at all for my taste. Returning was simple and I got a full refund for the returned black dragon.
