The Silver Dragon IEM headphone cable V1 will open up your IEMs and let them breathe easier. Silver conductors provide a more resolute and detailed open sound. Transients appear to be more cohesive and controlled. The bass is tighter and more controlled.
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.
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.

The Silver Dragon IEM headphone cable is the baby brother of the original award-winning Silver Dragon headphone cable V3 for full-size headphones. We have designed this IEM headphone cable for use with Custom In-Ear monitors or IEM's where light weight and flexibility are a must.
"The Silver Dragon JH3A Cable and Silver Dragon IEM Cable gives a +3db increase in input sensitivity across the entire frequency range and much greater detail than any other cable."Jerry Harvey, JH Audio | RMAF 2012
This cable now includes 2 types of 2-pin connection. The first is for Custom & Universal IEMs that include memory wire for 2 pin connection option. This is typically used for IEMs like JH Audio, Noble Audio, Empire Ears and many others that utilize a cable that wraps around the ear.
The second option was specifically designed for the new Audeze IEMs. Such as Audeze iSine10, iSine20 & LCD-i4 with a 2 pin connection that offers a locking channel and no memory wire for a direct drop down cable from the IEMs.
Silver Dragon IEM Cable V1 uses a coaxial design, constructed with UP-OCC 99.99998% pure silver center conductor. It is then wrapped concentrically by a 15-18% ratio silver plated conductor, using the same varying size stranding and Kevlar reinforcement in both conductors that is used in other Dragon Cables. The left and right signal cables run parallel to each other, resulting in a very low inductance. Both signal paths are wrapped in a final polyethylene jacket, creating a cable that is extremely flexible yet resilient and resistant to flex failure.
A variety of connection options are available for your downstream connection such as the mini plug, RCA, XLR and many others. We custom build these cables in-house to your connection specifications. The cable can be used in either a single-ended or a balanced design. The wire is soldered to a connector using high-quality Cardas silver solder. No flimsy or stiff cables are made here at Moon Audio so throw out that cheap stock cable and bring your Custom IEM's here to Moon Audio.

"If making deep connections with your music is important...products like the Silver Dragon cables can act as a conduit to that grand connection. I'm never giving mine up."Michael Mercer, Positive Feedback | Issue 64, December 2012
*IEMs made after Sept. 2010 have an angled connector so the fit is not as tight and flush as with earlier models.
