Silver Dragon Cable for FitEar IEMs V1
The Silver Dragon cable for FitEar IEMs is the baby brother to the original Silver Dragon Headphone cable V3.
We have designed it for use with FitEar Custom In Ear monitors or IEM's where light weight and flexibility are a must! No flimsy or stiff cables are made here at Moon Audio.
This custom iem headphone cable will open up your FitEar IEMs and let them breathe easier.
It will provide a more musical presentation and sound stage depth plus you will hear more clarity, instrumentation and musicality.
Throw out that cheap stock cable and bring your Universal or Custom IEM's here to Moon Audio!
To hear Drew speak specifically about the IEM cables - fast forward to 18:00 minutes.
The Silver Dragon V1 IEM Shure headphone cable fits all of these in ear monitors below:
Aya, MH334, MH335DW, Private 222, Private 223, Private 333,
Fitear, Parterre, To Go! 334
This cable has specific connections for the FitEar in ear monitors or iem's.
The Silver Dragon IEM is a coaxial design using 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.
Red is Right Channel
Blue is Left Channel
Dots always should be pointing in upward direction.
"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."

"Moon Audio's Silver Dragon line, specifically their IEM and LOD cables, are an essential component of my portable audio rigs. I use the IEM cables with my JH Audio JH-13 Pros, my reference (a sonic marriage made in heaven by the way) and the LOD cable on my iPod Classic and iPad2. I'd love to take credit for discovering these fantastic cables, but I have Jerry Harvey of JH Audio to thank for that. Now, when the founder and lead designer of your favorite IEM tells you to check out a particular set of cables, saying they enhance the performance of his product, it's advisable to follow his instructions.
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, and I recommend you check 'em out if personal audio is part of your listening experience."

"I knew Drew was also a FitEar customer, and, much to my amazement, he'd already made a custom over-molded connector specifically for FitEar IEMs; so I ordered a Moon Audio Silver Dragon cable for the FitEar MH334 Custom"

"Drew, I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with this cable on my new Freqphase JH Audio 13's. The improvement to the clarity of these new phones was only magnified by this cable. It did so without altering the tonal balance, and added a sense of refinement to the sound. They are not floppy flexible like some others but they are perfectly manageable and don't tangle or spring back at you when coiled like other cables I've tried. Well done."

My goal was to run everything balanced since the Solo-dB and Mk3b+ allow you to do that along with an upgrade to the cable on the 334 IEMs with a balanced termination. The only problem was that even though I upgraded my rig with a balanced Silver Dragon IEM cable to connect the Solo and Mk3 (same Silver Dragon cable that is used for the IEMs), I had upgraded my 334 IEMs with another high end brand's cable. I was not satisfied at all. The instrument separation seemed to be way off and a bit squashed and the soundstage was not "open" or "large" at all. I was beginning to think that I would prefer the setup single ended. Well, I read what Jerry Harvey has said about the Silver Dragon IEM cables on this site but was a little hesitant given that I had spent even more than the $185 I would be plunking down for the Silver Dragon IEM for FitEar cable, but I ordered them anyway just hoping that they would be a part of, if not THE solution to my problems. I had planned on a few A/B tests on some very well recorded and mastered tunes when the Silver Dragon cable arrived. I never had to A/B test once they arrived (even though I did just to believe what I was hearing).
The Silver Dragon cable with a balanced termination was love at first hear! The instruments were all where they were supposed to sit in the mix, the soundstage opened up, and every frequency was greatly improved, from the tight bottom to the even mids to the biggest improvement, which was the high frequencies which go very high and are well pronounced, but not harsh at all. I am finally very happy with my new rig! Now, I'm just waiting for Drew and Moon to get the 30 pin iPod dock connect to USB mini A cables out and everything will be complete if not even better. Now I'm also going to check out with Drew if I can have my larger cans setup with Silver Dragon cables!
