Hack Your Way to Better Performance
Looking to get dramatically better sound out of your old cans? Whether you go the DIY route or turn to one of our experts, hacking your headphones is a smart way to achieve the sound signature you desire.
"Finally, a headphone that exceeds all my expectations."Nicholas K.
Be Closer To The Music Than Ever Before
Gear shouldn't change the music, it should let it be. This is the thinking behind the industry's most sought after cables. Handcrafted from premium silver and copper strands, Dragon puts less in the signal path, so you can get more out of the listening experience. The result is an emotional connection to music not available until now.
You Got This
Designed to fit Focal, Audeze, JH Audio, and Shure headphones along with various brands of in-ear monitors, our Dragon cables are an easy at-home upgrade.
Matching the right cable to your headphone can improve the tonality and help achieve the sound signature you're looking for. Consider the following pairings for optimal sound performance:
Which Dragon Is Best For You?
Clear and detailed
High and mid-frequency sounds are often the first to be lost. Silver Dragon ensures this range is fully available to the ear. With clarity down to the minutest detail, Silver Dragon makes instruments distinct and increases soundstage.
Warm and smooth
If the goal is to get a sense of immediacy out of your music, Black Dragon is your cable of choice. Smooth, warm and delightfully musical, your listening experience will never be the same. It's like being in the music for the first time.
Calm and neutral
Looking for a combination without compromise? Blue Dragon cables combine the warmth and neutrality of Black Dragon with the clarity of Silver Dragon. For those upgrading cables for the first time, the sound benefits are as immediate as they are affordable.

We typically perform one of three types of custom headphone modifications:
- Standard (Hardwired)
Standard modifications replace the stock cable by soldering a new Dragon Cable upgrade directly to the headphone drivers.
A detachable modification replaces the stock cable with a Sennheiser HD800 connection and a detachable Dragon Cable. This gives you the added benefit of swapping out cables as you update your system or tune your sound signature.
- Split Mod
Split modifications convert a single-entry headphone into a dual-entry headphone. Our engineers remove the stock cable, add an entry into the second ear cup, and solder the upgrade cable to the drivers. We can also make this a Detachable Split Mod.
In some cases the design of the headphone prevents certain modifications from being possible. If you have any questions about specific headphones, feel free to let us know.
"Moon Audio's Drew Baird has not turned down any custom cabling challenge I've put in front of them — he'll even tackle the replacement of non-detachable cables, performing whatever surgery necessary to make the new connections."Jude Mansilla, Head-Fi.org
