The Silver Dragon Cable for Shure Headphones will improve the detail, clarity and dynamics of your Shure cans. Moon Audio created our own molds or connection system in order to plug right into full-size Shure headphones.
This creates a tighter connection and therefore improves the sound, clarity, and dynamics of the headphones. We are the only company that can directly connect to the SRH1840, SRH1540, SRH1440, Ultrasone Romeo and Ultrasone Edition 5.
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 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.

This cable uses a dual-entry MMCX connection. It is compatible with most headphones from Shure, including the SRH1840, Shure SRH1540, and Shure SRH1440.
The previous version used 4 x 99.998% Ultra Pure Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors. Thus we have stepped up the purity to the purist available by today's technology. We have improved the conductor properties over the previous Version 2 cable as these conductors are free from impurities and have virtually no crystal boundaries. The conductors have almost no distortion compared to ordinary silver conductors. Each conductor is made up of a special varying sized stranded geometry. The silver strandings are mixed with Kevlar standing's 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.
A variety of connection options are available for your downstream connection. Such as the mini plug, RCA, XLR and a whole host of 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 the connectors using high-quality Cardas silver solder.
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.
The SD V3 is a great candidate for headphones such as Sennheiser HD650 (a darker/warmer sounding can) or such headphones as the Hifiman HE-500, HE-6 and the Audeze LCD-2 and LCD3, which are planar magnetic driver headphones and warmer sounding headphones.
We also recently added some specialized "Silver Dragon V3" cables for certain headphone models and brands. See these links for more information:
