The Silver Dragon Portable Headphone Cable is designed for on-the-go listening with single-entry headphones like the Sony WH-1000XXM4 or the Sennheiser Momentum. The Silver Dragon will provide more resolution, clarity, and detail in your music. It pairs well with bass-heavy headphones, as it will tighten up the lower frequencies and correct a bloated low end. It's also a great choice for analytical listeners, as it emphasizes clarity in the instrumentation and increases the overall soundstage. Compatible with any genre, the Silver Dragon works especially well with classical, jazz, and other music with lots of instrumentation and nuance. If you're a critical listener, there's no substitution for the Silver Dragon. Level up to the Silver Dragon and experience your music like never before.

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 takes a no-holds-barred approach to quality. It features eight conductors of 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver. Void of impurities, this is the purest wire that can currently be produced. It includes all the sonic strengths of our original Silver Dragon IEM cable with an enhanced level of resolution and detail. It is not an overly forward or bright-sounding cable. It is extremely smooth and clean with an accurate reflection of the music, making it a non-fatiguing option for mastering and reference sound. The bass is tight and well-controlled, with more layers of resolution than any other cable we have produced.

What is UP-OCC?

UP-OCC stands for Ultra Pure Ohno Continuous Casting (OCC). This is not a material but a way of extruding silver and copper to prevent any impurities and fractures in the crystalline structure of the wire. The wire is drawn very slowly to cast as an almost perfect single crystal small diameter conductor. The resulting purity and the size of the cast wire makes a tremendous difference and there is less damage to the near-perfect cast state. We find this UP-OCC process produces a very clean and close to neutral sound in our copper- based and silver-based cables.

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.
