The Silver Dragon V3 Premium is our Top of the Line Headphone Cable for the Audeze headphones.  

It is a silver conductor based cable and it uses 4 x 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors.

PFO Writer's Choice Review by Michael Mercer - Dec. 2013

It can improve the listening enjoyment of the Audeze headphones and it has lots of detail, great energy, a fantastic soundstage with lots of air. It is a great candidate for warmer sounding headphones or planar magnetics like the Audeze LCD-2 or LCD-3. For the LCD-X or LCD-XC, we prefer the Black Dragon V2 Premium for Audeze but it depends on your music genre preferences.

This Premium cable is excellent for the Audeze headphones and it includes premium Furutech Rhodium Connectors to enhance the look, feel and listening pleasure of all your hifi music sessions. Higher grade Silver Solder is used and all connectors are treated.

The difference between the Standard Silver Dragon and the Premium Silver Dragon are the connectors used on each end and a harder to work with higher silver yield solder. The wire is identical. When you are trying to squeeze out every last percentage point of performance, the Premium version makes sense. The Furutech Top Line connectors are quite simply the best made. And every point of signal saturation will make a difference. Is there a night and day difference between the sound quality of the standard and premium? No. Is the Premium the best of the best? Yes. These cables are meant for the cream of the crop headphones where every little thing makes a difference in terms of bring you closer to audio nirvana.

"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. The Silver Dragon Headphone Cable Version 3 (V3) uses 4 x 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors. 

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.

For the Silver Dragon V3 Premium version, we are using the Furutech FT-610 connector. Furutech’s beautifully finished, beautiful sounding CF-H800 connectors are the result of meticulous engineering and careful audition of various suitable materials. The FT-610 features an α (Alpha) phosphor bronze conductor and Nylon+Fiberglass 15% insulation for minimal impedance and a nonmagnetic stainless and carbon fiber finished main body and nonmagnetic stainless end ring for superior damping. The Pins are Nonmagnetic Rhodium-plated α (Alpha) Phosphor bronze conductors.

The wire is soldered to the connector with high quality silver solder. The default 1/4" Plug is the new Furutech CF-763. Furutech’s beautifully finished, beautiful sounding CF-763 connectors are the result of meticulous engineering and careful audition of various suitable materials. The CF-763 features an Nonmagnetic Rhodium-plated α (Alpha) phosphor bronze conductor and Fluoropolymer insulation for minimal impedance and a nonmagnetic stainless and carbon fiber finished housing for superior damping.

For XLR connections there are 2 choices. The FP-601M(R) XLR which uses a Beryllium copper and phosphor bronze α (Alpha) Conductor: the body is a Copper alloy with PVDF Fluoropolymer insulation. The second choice is the top of the line CF-601M(R)XLR which utilizes an α (Alpha) Beryllium copper and phosphor bronze Rhodium-plated Conductor with Carbon fiber and nonmagnetic stainless steel housing. The Body is PVDF Fluoropolymer insulation with a Specially designed cable strain relief.

Excellent build quality, feels more durable than the stock balanced cable. Using the Dragon with my LCD3, sound is what I expected, which is to say very pleasing.

Best I've Tried for Audeze LCD-4
This balanced connection cable took much longer to break in than the 80 hours specified, but once broken in the combination of clarity, transparency, and neutral tonal balance makes my Audeze LCD-4 sound better than any other cable I've tried. The best headphones made yet better!

Lift the Vail hear every last bit.
They do make a difference. It is someone you can. It like cutting through a vail, not massive, but more then enough to �hear� the difference.

I listen to these with the LCD2. The stock wires will make an audiophile very angry. These are a beautiful replacement or enhancement. Nice work. The cables are crafted very well. The sound... Sharpens up the bass to hear it more clearly. Gives air and clarity to the rest of the frequency. Detailed, accurate sound overall. Although headphones will have different sound signatures. For these headphones, the silver gives a accurate sound replication with smooth highs (air), while copper keeps it lush and a looser bass attack (warmth). Drew's Moon Dragon YouTube review helped out a lot.

Great upgrade to stock Audeze LCD3 cable
This Silver Dragon v3 cable basically gave me an entirely new set of headphone! I was stunned by the change from my stock Audeze LCD3 cables. Virtually everything got better. Much better imaging (bigger, more clearly defined in space), more detail without brightness, better sense of space around the instruments, more "bloom" and "air". Cymbals shimmer in an amazingly realistic fashion. I did notice a tonal shift - in my case a desirable one - it brought the recessed mids and upper mids up a bit. This is a personal taste issue and may not appeal to everyone. I was glad though that I did not lose the bass energy with this upgrade. If I could fine tune this rating, I'd give it 4.5 stars. There is perhaps just a bit of heft that might be there that isn't. But I could never go back to the stock cables after hearing these. Highly recommended!

Fantastic upgrade to Audeze LCD003 standard cable
I did not expect such incredible improvement from standard cable to Silver Dragon Premium Cable!
The price is high but it is well worth the upgrade! Excellent craftsmanship! About a week delivery time to Sweden with FedEx!
