The Blue Dragon Mini Portable Interconnect V3 is designed to maximize signal connections of portable gear in a home environment where flexibility is not a concern. It will provide the best signal transmission from your Computer Audio Card or Portable Player to your home audio system. It is a perfect option to connect the audio output of your computer to a pair of active power desktop speakers like the Fostex PM0.4n Professional Studio Monitor.
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 (stock) 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 offices 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.
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.

The Blue Dragon Portable Interconnect features the same geometry structure as the Blue Dragon headphone cables, using a 2-cable configuration instead of the one used in the Blue Dragon Portable Mini Cable.
One end of this cable is typically terminated with a 3.5mm connector, to RCAs on the other end. We use 2 discrete runs of Blue Dragon cable vs. 1 run with the Portable Mini Cable. if right angle 3.5mm mini plug is required then see Moon Audio Blue Dragon V3 Portable Mini Cable.
The same geometry structure is used as the Silver Dragon Version 3 only it uses UP-OCC pure copper.
The cable uses a 4 99.999% pure copper 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors.
Each conductor is made up of a special varying size stranding geometry. The silver 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 previous versions with no microphonics.
It uses the Cardas GRCM connector which is the connector standard. This male RCA connector is made of non-magnetic, eutectic Brass, Rhodium over Silver plate, with a gold plated Brass cover. Upgrading to the WBT will add a slight increase in resolution.
The wire is soldered to the Cardas connector with WBT or Cardas silver solder. The openness and detail of this cable is truly a benchmark at this price. As with all our stuff I offer a 30day money back guarantee. I recommend a 100hr break-in time, as silver takes longer to break in, but straight out of the box you will be amazed.
The cable is extremely smooth sounding with great low end and wonderful voicing.
Dragon Cables are an easy do-it-yourself upgrade to your favorite headphones with detachable cables. With a wide array of connection options, a plug-and-play cable is just a few clicks away.
We also offer custom headphone hacks for your hard-wired cans, like many Grado, Sennheiser or AKG headphones. For more information on custom headphone modifications, visit our Hack Your Headphones portal.
