The Blue Dragon USB cable utilizes our single crystal UPOCC copper construction to provide you with the best possible digital bus transmission.

"By Far the Best Value in USB Cables...The Blue Dragon remains extraordinarily musical and does not suffer from harsh treble."

— Andy Schaub, Positive Feedback
Positive Feedback 2012 Writers Choice Awards

It uses a 99.999% pure copper 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded copper conductors with a double layer shield to ward off outside interference.

Standard USB cables are not up to the task of large bit rate information.  We have optimized this cable for audio transmission of large High Rez files.  USB cables can make big a difference and the Blue Dragon is one heck of a bang for the buck cable.

The Blue Dragon USB cable is utilized to transfer digital audio information from your PC or portable iDevice to an outboard USB Digital to Analog Converter allowing you to enjoy your computer based audio in a home or portable audio system's environment.

Beautifully Built Cable, Performs Flawlessly
I am still undecided as to the sonic improvements a high quality cable may bring, and tend to believe the main advantages are reliable fit / finish / function to maximize usability and assure no signal and sound degradation, even if it cannot improve upon it.

I am using the Blue Dragon USB as an OTG cable from my Android phone to portable DAC / AMP, and it performs flawlessly on all of these counts. It is attractive, well-built and I am getting a reliable, connection between my devices with excellent sonic results.

So cable controversy aside, I am very happy with my decision to invest in this cable rather than a cheaper alternative, and expect to use it happily for a long while, likely over time at no greater expense than using and replacing multiple less expensive models.

Bravo, Moon Audio, for an aesthetically pleasing and beautifully functioning cable that is still relatively affordable for budget-conscious audiophiles.

Super! Rich, detailed, full, very musical
Very satisfied with this cable!
Even on 4,5 m it delivers super sound.

Upgrade fom Audioquest cinnamon 3m

Musicality took several jumps up!
I can't really imagine a better cable, especially for that price.

Rich in bass and mids, very good clarity and treble.
Very detailed. It's always a good sign when you hear new instruments and details in an upgrade, as the case certainly was here.
Staging is good too.

Runs quite close to hdmi and bass rca cable and still this great!

Blasted through my expectations
I had no expectations that the Blue Dragon USB cables would impact the sound of my desktop headphone rig (laptop-Schiit Bifrost-Schiit Lyr2-DHC Molecule Elite 4-wire HP cables-Alpha Primes). I bought them primarily because of the ability to customize the connections and lengths for my needs, and to get more of my cabling under one brand/make (I previously ordered some interconnects from Drew). Pricing-wise they were a bit high for simply wanting custom-sized cables, but obviously not too high.

That said, the improvement in sound left me a slack-jawed. I can't pin down all the little improvements, except to say that the sound gained some clarity and sweetness. I've made a lot of tweaks to my rig recently and I really didn't expect any sonic changes from the Blue Dragons, but I'm very pleased to say they met my functional needs and surprised with the sonic improvements.

Improved the sound and video of my headphone setup by an unexpected margin.
I received my Blue Dragon usb cable and I am using it for my portable audio setup.

I have about 30 - 40 hours with it so far and I can already say to anyone interested in Moon Audio cables that this is a great Dragon to start with if you are curious to see what the Dragons can and will do for your setup.

I kid you not, I also charged my Plystation Vita with the micro plug and my friend and I both can see and hear a magical difference with a much less harsh sound and more vivid video. For the price of th Blue Dragon, it comes very highly recommended.

Superb Build Quality
I will not discuss the sonic improvements as that is a debatable issue to some although I have long been a believer in cables shaping the sound.

The build quality on my Blue Dragon USB cable is emphatically not up for debate. The Blue Dragon is built to very tight tolerances and fits my USB input on my amp/DAC perfectly.

For $75, what you receive is the best USB cable on the market.
