Why Blue Dragon?

After speaking with Jared we learned he was very interested in keeping the sound signature he enjoyed about the Audio Technica ATH-MSR7. The Blue Dragon is a great candidate to enhance the sound signature of your favorite headphones without adding coloration. Blue Dragon is very neutral and isn't too forward or too relaxed.

We normally recommend Blue Dragon for budding audiophiles who want to get the best sound out of their headphones without changing the headphone's characteristics.

Jared Sum - entry excerpt

I accidentally stumbled upon the world of electronic music about 1 year & 8 months ago after watching a video with a song I found catchy, and found the channel called "Monstercat". They had a promotion at the time and were giving away a free album, so I thought "why not get it since it's free?". So I got up at 4am and got the album, and since then I've fallen in love with my music and its quality. Music has gotten me through extremely tough and dark times and I owe a lot to it.
