Bronze Dragon IEM Headphone Adapter Cable
The Bronze Dragon helps create a warmer presentation with bigger and fuller body, adding bottom end strength and musicality without becoming lush or bloated. In cases where you own a bright or thin sounding IEM, the Bronze Dragon will add body to the sound. It will provide a fuller, bigger presentation to the music.
The Bronze Dragon IEM Headphone Adapter Cable is an extension for your main Bronze Dragon IEM Headphone cable to provide extra length or change terminations on the amplifier end.
Adapter cables make it easier to change from one connection type to another. As more connection types become available, adapters are a great solution foron-the-go portable listening.
Sound characteristics & design
When designing the Silver Dragon IEM headphone cable V2, we decided to design the best possible IEM cable to truly bring out the best in the top of the line JH Audio IEMs. A no holds barred approach was taken with 8 x 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver conductors are being used per cable. The amount of silver used in this cable over the Version 1 is mind-blowing, and we stayed true to our motto to not overprice or over inflate the retail price. This is by no means a low priced cable, but we challenge you to find a cable at this price point and performance level. We know you won't find a better value or sound at this price.
The V2 design utilizes is a 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver conductor. It is the purest wire that can be produced in this day and age and void of all impurities. It includes all the sonic characteristics & strengths of our original Silver Dragon IEM cable with an enhanced level of resolution and detail. It is not an overly forward or bright sounding cable, it is extremely smooth, very clean with an accurate reflection of the music. We have found it to be very non-fatiguing with a mastering reference sound indeed. A tight, well controlled bass which has more layers of resolution than any other cable we have produced rounds out its characteristics.
If you are a critical listener like our founder, Drew Baird, then there is no substitution for this cable! You will be thrilled with the resolution and detail.
Redesign of the JH Audio connections & IEM sockets
The cable connections and IEM sockets of the JH Audio 4pin connection style IEMs were also redesigned by Moon Audio. The Astell & Kern and JH Audio IEMs with the 4 pin connection style include: the Angie, Angie II, Rosie, Roxanne, Roxanne II, Layla, and Layla II, and soon to follow all custom IEMs at JH Audio. Please contact us or JH as to whether your new IEM will have this 4 pin connection. This 4pin connection socket upgrade has improved the durability of the connections & sockets for long-term use & enjoyment.
First, we improved the threaded locking section and the nut as we are now using anodized aluminum for durability and better tolerance. The male and female pins utilize a proprietary metal combination called ARCAP. It is essentially a high yield copper-based metal that does not contain iron so it is not magnetic. It also has very high tensile strength and it is resistant to chemical corrosion. This is very important for those of you who will use the cable and IEMs at the gym or on stage if you are in a band as it will be much more durable and resistant to flex failure from the constant movement and/or wear & tear.
Three standard premolded cable options are available. These are the 3 post common options.
- 2.5mm balanced 4 pole gold straight mini plug
For use with the balanced output of the Astell and Kern players, RAL players, and ALO amps. Entire body is molded to prevent shorting to ground of chassis.
- 3.5mm straight 3 pole stereo single ended connection
For use with most common portable devices. Features an extended neck to accommodate phone and tablet cases with a deep connector socket hole.
- 4.4mm straight 5 pole stereo single ended connection
For use with the Sony-devised connection becoming popular with other brands
Custom Connector Upgrade
An additional Oyaide 3.5mm Gold TRS connector option is available, picture above..
We also offer a host of custom termination options. The premolded connections are available for immediate shipment, while custom terminations require a few additional processing days.
Many of our connectors are available in both Rhodium-plated and gold-plated finishes. We find that Rhodium provides the closest synergy with silver conductor based and copper conductors match better with gold plating. You may notice Rhodium upgrade connectors on the Silver Dragon IEM Cables and Gold plated connectors on the Bronze Dragon and Black Dragon IEM Cables.
We can do either by special request.
