"The...Silver Dragon cables…brought me closer to the music…to what I hear in live performances...The air and separation of the musicians and instruments were more noticeable. Vocals became crisper and the transparency increased...I forgot about the cables and just enjoyed the music," Frank Iacone, Positive Feedback, Issue 73, May/June 2014

Moon Audio has improved the conductor properties on the Silver Dragon V3 Headphone Cable over the previous Version 2 as these conductors are free from impurities and have virtually no crystal boundaries. The conductors have almost no distortion compared to ordinary silver conductors. The previous version used 4 x 99.998% Ultra Pure Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors. Therefore, we have stepped up the purity to the purist available by today's technology.

Each conductor is made up of a special varying sized stranded geometry. The silver stranding's are mixed with Kevlar standing's to reinforce the conductor making it stronger overall and less prone to failure due to the harsh constant flexing that headphone cable experience.

Each conductor is encapsulated in a Teflon casing. The conductors are then surrounded by cotton and a thin layer of Aluminum Foil.

It is then protected by a 100% coverage silver plated copper secondary shield and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection. To improve it's flexibility, we are no longer using a Techflex jacketing as we did with our previous versions.

A variety of connection options are available for your downstream connection. Moon Audio custom builds these headphone cables in house to your connection specifications.

The cable can be used in either a single ended or balanced design. The wire is soldered to a connectors using high quality Cardas silver solder.

Audeze LCD-3 Details

The LCD-3 by Audeze combines leading-edge planar technology with ongoing design input from Sound Engineers and Audiophiles. Audeze’s manufacturing process, combined with advanced materials and technology, produce extremely accurate and incredible sounding headphones.  When Audeze started designing the LCD-3 professional reference headphones, the goal was very clear, it must be the best and no compromise when it comes to the quality of sound.

The LCD-3 provides the highest level of audio quality, unsurpassed bass extension, exceptional treble and the best mid-range. Innovations Every Day and Audeze aspires to deliver extraordinary products through research.

The LCD-3 is packed with many innovative technologies and new approaches. Audeze uses a proprietary thin-film diaphragm that is housed between a unique super-efficient push-pull magnetic structure.  Through the dedication of the Audeze research and development team they were able to take the best practices of our flagship LCD-2 product and make the Audeze LCD-3 planar magnetic diaphragm even thinner and control it through an even more efficient magnetic structure. 

The ear cups are made from precision crafted, hand-selected Zebrano wood with sloped ear pads made premium lambskin leather. The Premium lambskin ear pads have been designed with specially crafted foam to offer the right amount of firmness and acoustical balance.  With its intense color variation that ranges from light to dark the Zebra Wood (Zebrano) Complements the LCD-3's and was chosen specifically for its appearance, nothing matches the warmth and sheer luxury of natural wood. 

Head-Fi+ Review by Chris Martens, May 05, 2013

Inner Fidelity Fazor Review by Tyll Hertsens, May 2014 

"I tried a Moon Silver Dragon on my LCD3s (formerly using Black Dragons, which I liked a lot also).  Here are my findings:

1. Major improvement in the bass, which is clearer with more detail and more transparent and well integrated with rest of the spectrum. 

2. More detail in the mids without any harshness or abrasion.

3. Highs nice and extended but not piercing; also fuller highs.  A superb cable for the LCD3s, now making them a top phone for me." Rick, 11/14/12
