Silver Dragon Headphone Adapter Cable V3
This is our Silver Dragon adapter cable to compliment and extend your main Silver Dragon Headphone cable V3. Adapter cables make it more versatile to do quick changes from one connection type to another.
This is a great option if you need extra length or to change amplifier terminations.
More and more connection types are becoming prevalent, which makes adapter cables a great solution for switching your headphone listening from home to portable use.
The shortest we can make a 1/4" or 4pin XLR adapter cable is 1.0ft.
The shortest we can make a Dual 3 pin XLR cable is 1.5ft.
Like the Silver Dragon Headphone cable we uses the same 4 x 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC pure Silver with 7N purity 99.99998% as the main cable.
Each conductor is made up of a special varying size stranding geometry. The silver stranding is mixed with Kevlar stranding to reinforce the conductor. Making it stronger overall and less prone to failure due to the harsh constant flexing a headphone cable receives.
The conductors are then surrounded by cotton and then a layer of Teflon tape.
The new version is now also shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection.
The Version 3 is quieter than the Version 2 with no microphonics.
It is a balanced cable geometry that can be terminated for either single ended or balanced config.
This cable can be configured in a variety of different ways. Please note that single ended signal connection can not be converted to balanced signal connection. As the grounds are tied in the single ended connector. Thus only pick this config if your amp has no single ended connection outputs.
Above is a pair of Ultrasone Edition 8 headphones. Moon Audio has replaced the stock cable with a 5ft Silver Dragon V3 Headphone cable that utilizes a Switchcraft Mini 4 pin Male XLR. This connection point allows for adapters to be made that either provide a balanced termination or a single ended termination.
The picture also includes a 6″ Silver Dragon adapter with the Balanced plug used for a RSA SR71b or ALO Rx MK3-b. The Ray Samuels RSA SR71B or the ALO Rx Mk3-b are both portable balanced headphone amps.
The second 6″ Silver Dragon Adapter Cable has a mini 1/8″ plug for single ended portable amplifiers or direct connection to a portable media player like the iPod.
The 3rd cable in the picture is not an adapter but a Silver Dragon LOD to mini cable. This cable provides a true line out signal from an Apple iDevice such as the iPhone 4s and before and the iPad, etc. Look for a new version of this for the iPhone 5 since Apple is now incorporating a new plug style called the Lightning connector.
I also used this product to create a terrific XLR balanced extension cable.
Happy with my purchase.
They are much more flexible than anticipated. They seem to be a perfect fit with my planar headphones. They may not be the ideal match for all headphones, so I recommend checking with Drew for his professional advice.
If you have invested and great headphones, these cables are worth the money. Happy listening�
The connection is good without any loss or introduction of buzz noise which can happen with bad connections.
