The Blue Dragon Premium Cable has a calm and neutral sound that will enhance clarity in your Audeze headphones. The copper-based Blue Dragon will "clean" the sound without warming or brightening it. You can think of the Blue Dragon like a cleaning cloth for your eyeglass lenses -- you're removing obstructions to the best view but not altering your prescription. Whether you choose to pair it with the warmer-sounding LCD-2 or LCD-3 or the more neutral/analytical/forward headphones in the LCD headphone lineup, you'll enjoy a clean, clear sound without added coloration. The Blue Dragon is great for vocal performances and genres like Classical, Americana, and Country where a more relaxed, organic sound is desired.
The Blue Dragon Premium Cable features 4 x 24AWG Teflon-insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper with 7N purity 99.99998%. Dragon Premium cables offer the same quality construction as our standard Dragon cables, but with extras like Mundorf Msolder SUPREME SilverGold and premium rhodium-plated Furutech connectors that look and feel great while enhancing your listening pleasure. Get ready for superior clarity and detail that will make you fall in love with your Audeze headphones all over again!
Compatible these Audeze headphones: LCD-2, LCD-3, LCD-4, LCD-4Z, LCD-5, LCD-X, LCD-GX, LCD-24, LCD-MX4 (and all closed variants).
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.
Premium Dragon Cables offer the same quality construction as the standard line, featuring UP-OCC 99.99998% pure conductors and matching cable designs with a few upgrades. Cardas Silver Solder is replaced with Mundorf MSolder SUPREME Silver-Gold mix at every connection point, and premium Furutech Rhodium connectors are included to enhance the look, feel and listening pleasure of all your hifi music sessions. When you are trying to squeeze out every last percentage point of performance, the Premium version makes sense. The Furutech Top Line connectors are quite simply the best made, and every point of signal saturation makes a difference.
Is there a night and day difference between the sound quality of the standard and premium? No. Is the Premium the best of the best? Yes. These cables are meant for cream-of-the-crop headphones where every detail makes a difference in bringing you closer to audio bliss.
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.

Audeze headphones are made with planar magnetic drivers, giving them a warmer sound signature. This warmth makes them a strong match with a more neutral or analytical cable. The neutrality of the Blue Dragon will highlight the detail and expand the sound stage of LCD headphones without sacrificing their inherent warmer tones.
This cable features a locking 4-pin mini XLR connector that is compatible with most headphone in the Audeze LCD series. This connector is also used on a few other high-end headphones, like the Meze Audio Empyrean.
This cable is not compatible with the LCD-1, LCDi3, or LCDi4.
The Blue Dragon Headphone Cable is constructed with four conductors made of 99.99998% pure copper. These conductors use varying size stranding, providing more flexibility and a longer lifespan than solid core cables. These conductors are then encased in a braided wire shield, foil, and teflon to protect the audio signal from electromagnetic interference and reduce cable noise. The outer jacket is composed of blue polyethylene to create a durable, flexible shell.
