Silver Dragon Cable V3 for Ultrasone Headphones

$315.00
In stock

This Silver Dragon Cable is designed to fit standard Ultrasone headphones including the Edition 5, Edition 5 Unlimited, Edition 8 Romeo, Edition 8 Julia, and Tribute 7.

We created our own molds for a tighter connection and improved sound, clarity, and dynamics in full-size Ultrasone headphones.

This cable does NOT plug into the original Edition 8 headphones. Edition 8 must be hacked by hardwiring the upgrade cable to the drivers.

Dragon Audio Cables

Quality You Can Trust

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 (stock) 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 offices 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.

Silver Dragon Sound Signature

The Silver Dragon is the original cable. 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.

Cable Design

Moon Audio is the only company (we know of in the world) that can directly connect to the Ultrasone Romeo, Julia and Ultrasone Edition 5 right now. We work hard to bring audiophiles truly custom audio cables at superior pricing, quality and with customized connection capablities.

The original Silver Dragon V3 Headphone Cable is Moon Audio's Top of the Line Headphone Cable. It is a silver conductor based cable and it uses 4 x 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors.

The Silver Dragon V3 can improve the listening enjoyment of most high-end headphones and it has lots of detail, great energy, a fantastic soundstage with lots of air.

The SD V3 is a great candidate for Darker Sounding headphones or headphones that have a bloated bottom end. The Silver Dragon V3 will add detail and clarity to the top end and provide a cleaner more transparent sound.

The previous version used 4 x 99.998% Ultra Pure Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors. Thus we have stepped up the purity to the purist available by today's technology. We have improved the conductors properties over the previous Version 2 cable as these conductors are free from impurities and have virtually no crystal boundaries. The conductors have almost no distortion compared to ordinary silver 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 its 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 such as the mini plug, RCA, XLR and a whole host of others. We custom build these 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.

Great Cable
The Silver Dragon cable is much better than my previous balanced cable made by a Japanese vendor. It also does not have the microphonics and mmcx connection problems of that previous cable.

I can now fully enjoy the music from my Edition 5. Wish I were more patient to order this cable and wait for it shipment instead of buying that Japanese cable together with my Edition 5 from a dealer shop in Hong Kong..

Thank you.
