The Silver Dragon Portable Headphone Cable is the perfect flexible cable for your on-the-go headphone listening needs. Made with premium materials, the Silver Dragon will provide better resolution, detail, and depth to your music. It is a great pairing for bass-heavy headphones, as it will tighten up the lower frequencies and correct bloated low end. The Silver Dragon Portable headphone cable will be a great match for more analytical listeners as well, emphasizing clarity in the instrumentation, and increasing the overall soundstage.

Designed for single entry connection headphones like the Sony WH-1000XM4 or Sennheiser Momentum. It features 8 conductors of 99.99998% UP-OCC stranded silver in each cable. It is the purest wire that can be produced and is void of all impurities. You can be assured that nothing will come between you and your music.

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 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.

Silver Dragon Sound Signature

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

The Silver Dragon Portable Headphone Cable is constructed to the same specifications as the Silver Dragon IEM V2, providing optimal flexibility for your portable headphones.

Single-Ended Connections

Most single-entry headphones use a single-ended connector. While cables with balanced headphone connections may use balanced or single-ended amplifier connectors, this is not true of single-ended connections. Combining a balanced amplifier connector with a single-ended headphone connection can short the circuit and damage the amplifier. This is why the amplifier connections for this cable are limited to single-ended options.

Beware of single-ended to balanced adapters on Amazon. For balanced single-entry headphones, like the Oppo PM-3, contact us for a custom cable.
