The Silver Dragon IEM Headphone Adapter Cable V1 is an extension or adapter cable to go with your main Silver Dragon V1 IEM Headphone cable if extra length is needed or you need to change terminations on the amplifier end. Adapter cables make it more versatile to do quick changes from one connection type to another. More and more connection types are becoming available, thus making this a great solution for hifi enthusiasts or "on the go" portable listening.
The shortest we can make an XLR based cable is 1.5 feet.

2.5mm TRRS Balanced Gold RT Angle Mini Premolded is only available in 6-inch lengths.

Most stock cables are made of poor, ultra-thin conductors with poor geometries, rubber jackets, and other issues that can limit the performance of your equipment.
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.
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.

Like the Silver Dragon Headphone cable we uses the same coaxial design utilizing a 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 26AWG center conductor for the positive leg. The center conductor uses the same Kevlar reinforcing as the other Dragon cables. The center conductor is wrapped concentrically by a 99.99998% UP-OCC silver plated single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper stranded 26AWG gauge conductor with 7N purity 99.99998%. Now that is a mouth full:)
The left and right signal cables run parallel to each other resulting in a very low inductance. Both signal jackets are polyethylene and the cable is extremely flexible yet very 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 in house to your connection specification. The cable can be used in either a single ended or balanced design. The wire is soldered to a connector using high quality Cardas silver solder.
The pictured headphones are Ultrasone Edition 8 that we have hacked with a 5ft Silver Dragon V3 Headphone cable that utilizes a Switchcraft Mini 4 pin Male XLR. This connection point allows for adapters to be attached to provide either a balanced termination or a single-ended termination.
The picture also includes a 6″ Silver Dragon adapter with the Balanced plug used for a RSA SR71b or ALO Rx MK3-b. The Ray Samuels RSA SR71B or the ALO Rx Mk3-b are both portable balanced headphone amps. The second 6″ Silver Dragon Adapter Cable has a mini 1/8″ plug for single ended portable amplifiers or direct connection to a portable media player like the iPod. The 3rd cable in the picture is not an adapter but a Silver Dragon LOD to mini cable. This cable provides a true line out signal from an Apple iDevice such as the iPhone 4s and before and the iPad, etc. Look for a new version of this for the iPhone 5 since Apple is now incorporating a new plug style called the Lightning connector.
Dragon Cables are an easy do-it-yourself upgrade to your favorite headphones with detachable cables. With a wide array of connection options, a plug-and-play cable is just a few clicks away.
We also offer custom headphone hacks for your hard-wired cans, like many Grado, Sennheiser or AKG headphones. For more information on custom headphone modifications, visit our Hack Your Headphones portal.
