The Silver Dragon V3 Premium is our Top of the Line Headphone Cable for the Aude… More details
Upgrade your Audeze headphones with our top-of-the-line Silver Dragon Premium cable. Compatible with all LCD headphones except the LCD-1, the Silver Dragon will give a big boost in instrument separation, soundstage, and detail. Transients will appear more cohesive and the bass will be tighter for a more controlled sound. It's a wonderful match for the warmer and bottom-heavy LCD-2 and LCD-3. For the other more forward or analytical-sounding headphones in the LCD lineup, we often recommend a Black Dragon Premium cable. However, if you really enjoy critical listening, or your audio system leans warm or dark, then the Silver Dragon will be a good choice. It's a great cable for classical, jazz, and other genres with nuanced instrumentation.
Our Silver Dragon Premium cables use 4 x 24.0 AWG Teflon-insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC silver with 7N purity 99.99998% and feature enhancements like Mundorf Msolder SUPREME SilverGold and premium Furutech connectors to enhance the look, feel, and pleasure of your hi-fi listening sessions. If you want the best of the best, our premium cables are the ultimate match for your favorite audiophile headphones.Compatible with these Audeze headphones: LCD-2, LCD-3, LCD-4, LCD-4Z, LCD-5, LCD-X, LCD-GX, LCD-24, LCD-MX4 (and all closed variants).
Most stock headphone cables are made of poor, ultra-thin conductors that work as a bottleneck for sound. Poor geometries, no shielding, rubber jackets, and a whole host of other issues in OEM cables can limit the performance of the headphone driver in terms of clarity and definition.
Dragon Cables are handcrafted from quality materials in Moon Audio's headquarters in Cary, North Carolina. All of our cables are created with ultra-pure, single-crystal silver and copper strands and engineered to provide the cleanest, most musical presentation. Our wire is void of impurities and crystalline boundaries, leaving nothing between you and your music.
Premium Dragon Cables offer the same quality construction as the standard line, featuring UP-OCC 99.99998% pure conductors and matching cable designs with a few upgrades. Cardas Silver Solder is replaced with Mundorf MSolder SUPREME Silver-Gold mix at every connection point, and premium Furutech Rhodium connectors are included to enhance the look, feel and listening pleasure of all your hifi music sessions. 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 makes 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 cream-of-the-crop headphones where every detail makes a difference in bringing you closer to audio bliss.
Silver strands clarify instrument separation, increase soundstage, and find previously lost high and mid-frequency sounds. Transients appear more cohesive and the bass tighter for a more controlled sound. The detail and clarity of the Silver Dragon make it a perfect match for classical music and other genres with many nuanced instruments.

Audeze headphones are made with planar magnetic drivers, giving them a warmer sound signature. This warmth makes them a strong match with a more neutral or analytical cable. The neutrality of the Silver Dragon will highlight the detail and enhance the clarity of LCD headphones without sacrificing their inherent warmer tones.
This cable features a locking 4-pin mini XLR connector that is compatible with most headphone in the Audeze LCD series. This connector is also used on a few other high-end headphones, like the Meze Audio Empyrean.
This cable is not compatible with the LCD-1, LCDi3, or LCDi4.
The Silver Dragon Premium Cable for the Audeze headphones is a Version 3 of our popular Silver Dragon Headphone Cable, with some premium enhancements. We've 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 purest available by today's technology. The Silver Dragon Headphone Cable 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 strandings are mixed with Kevlar standings 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.The cable is then protected by a 100% coverage silver-plated copper secondary shield and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection. To improve its 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 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.
