Bring out the best in your Sony headphones with our top-of-the-line Silver Dragon Premium cable. Designed to enhance detail and clarity, the Silver Dragon will find "lost" middle and high frequencies without overpowering the natural warmth of your Sony headphones. The Silver Dragon will also expand the soundstage and provide more clarity and instrument separation. It's a great match for warm or bassy headphones and for people who love critical listening. The Silver Dragon pairs well with all genres, particularly classical, jazz, and other music with lots of nuance and instrumentation.

This version 3 of our Silver Dragon headphone cable uses 4 x 24.0 AWG Teflon-insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC silver with 7N purity 99.99998% and features enhancements like Mundorf Msolder SUPREME SilverGold and premium Furutech connectors to enhance the look, feel, and pleasure of your hi-fi listening sessions. If you want the best of the best, our premium cables are the ultimate match for your favorite audiophile headphones.

Compatible with the Sony MDR-Z1R, MDR-Z7, and MDR Z MKII headphones.

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.

The Premium Difference

Premium Dragon Cables offer the same quality construction as the standard line, featuring UP-OCC 99.99998% pure conductors and matching cable designs with a few upgrades. Cardas Silver Solder is replaced with Mundorf MSolder SUPREME Silver-Gold mix at every connection point, and premium Furutech Rhodium connectors are included to enhance the look, feel and listening pleasure of all your hifi music sessions. When you are trying to squeeze out every last percentage point of performance, the Premium version makes sense. The Furutech Top Line connectors are quite simply the best made, and every point of signal saturation makes a difference.

Is there a night and day difference between the sound quality of the standard and premium? No. Is the Premium the best of the best? Yes. These cables are meant for cream-of-the-crop headphones where every detail makes a difference in bringing you closer to audio bliss.

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.

Silver Dragon and Sony MDR-Z1R

The Sony MDR-Z1R headphone has a warmer sound signature, making the Silver Dragon Headphone Cable a match made in heaven. The Silver Dragon will enhance the clarity and detail without overpowering the natural warmth of the headphone. This cable is designed for the MDR-Z1R and MDR-Z7 headphones.

Sony Connectors

Sony headphones primarily use one of three headphone connectors. This premium cable is available in your choice of the standard 3.5mm connector or the screw-type 3.5mm connector.

Cable Design

"The air and separation of the musicians and instruments were more noticeable. Vocals became crisper and the transparency increased...I forgot about the cables and just enjoyed the music."

Frank Iacone, Positive Feedback | Issue 73, May/June 2014

Moon Audio has improved the conductor properties on the Silver Dragon Headphone Cable V3 over the previous Version 2 as these conductors are free from impurities and have virtually no crystal boundaries. The conductors have almost no distortion compared to ordinary silver conductors. The previous version used 4 x 99.998% Ultra Pure Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors. Therefore, we have stepped up the purity to the purist available by today's technology. The Silver Dragon Headphone Cable Version 3 (V3) uses 4 x 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors.

Each conductor is made up of a special varying sized stranded geometry. The silver strandings are mixed with Kevlar standings to reinforce the conductor making it stronger overall and less prone to failure due to the harsh constant flexing that headphone cable experience. Each conductor is encapsulated in a Teflon casing. The conductors are then surrounded by cotton and a thin layer of Aluminum Foil. It is then protected by a 100% coverage silver plated copper secondary shield and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection. To improve its flexibility, we are no longer using a Techflex jacketing as we did with our previous versions.

The wire is soldered to the connector with high-quality silver solder. The default 1/4" plug is the new Furutech CF-763. Furutech’s beautifully finished, beautiful sounding CF-763 connectors are the result of meticulous engineering and careful audition of various suitable materials. The CF-763 features a nonmagnetic rhodium-plated α (Alpha) phosphor bronze conductor and fluoropolymer insulation for minimal impedance and a nonmagnetic stainless and carbon fiber finished housing for superior damping.

For XLR connections there are two options. The first, the FP-601M(R) XLR, uses a beryllium copper and phosphor bronze α (Alpha) conductor; the body is a copper alloy with PVDF fluoropolymer insulation. The second choice is the top-of-the-line CF-601M(R) XLR, which utilizes an α (Alpha) beryllium copper and phosphor bronze rhodium-plated conductor with carbon fiber and nonmagnetic stainless steel housing. The body is PVDF fluoropolymer insulation with a specially designed cable strain relief.
