*NEW* Moon Audio Black Dragon V1 IEM LOD Cable - HOT OFF THE PRESS!!

post #1 of 14

*NEW* Moon Audio Black Dragon IEM-LOD cable

 

Starting at $60 for 0.5 ft

 

for linking an iPod, iPhone, iTouch and/or an iPad to portable

audio systems where flexibility and smaller footprints are required.

 

This is the *NEW* Moon Audio Black Dragon IEM-LOD cable Based on the award winning

Moon Audio Silver Dragon IEM LOD Cable, built with copper conductors.

 

This cable is for linking an iPod, iPhone, iTouch and/or an iPad to portable audio systems

where flexibility and smaller footprints are required.

 

The Black Dragon IEM V1 LOD Cable starting at only $60 is used to pull

digital or analog signals from your Apple iDevices.

 

For the New Apple Lightning connector please order the Apple Adapter HERE

as they have not released it yet to resellers. Then, simply order below the Micro USB B

(used with Lightning connector) to Mini USB B or USB A connection.

Moon Audio cannot do a Micro USB to 3.5mm mini plug as this is an analog connection

and requires a special chip.

 

The Black Dragon IEM LOD Cable bypasses the headphone amp and internal

digital to analog converter (or DAC) thus allowing the ability for you to use

a portable dac or portable dac headphone amp of your choosing.

Therefore, the iDevice just becomes a storage and control device for your music

and the Silver Dragon IEM LOD Cable allows you to get the best possible sound

to your portable dac or portable dac headphone amp. :))

 

**Another hint to the BEST sound is to make sure you rip all of your audio at an uncompressed file format.

MP3′s tend to sound compressed and the high frequencies are a bit harsh.

Rip your music from a traditional CD, buy a Moon Audio Silver Dragon IEM LOD Cable

and truly HEAR THE DIFFERENCE!!

 

A little background on our Moon Audio IEM Headphone Cables...

 

IEM, stands for In Ear Monitors and this cable was designed to compliment

our new Black Dragon IEM replacement headphone cables for such IEM headphones

as the JH Audio JH13Pro, Ultimate Ears UE10Pro, or Shure Audio's new SE425 & SE525.

 

Because IEM headphone portable systems are so much smaller and compact, Moon Audio needed cables

that reflect their needs thus the new series of IEM cables are being introduced.

 

The cable uses 2 x 99.99998% UP-OCC copper 26AWG insulated stranded

conductors as the central positive leg of the cables. Each central conductor is surrounded

by an externally wrapped negative conductor. By using a coaxial design, Moon Audio was able

to create great flexibility and a small footprint. The conductors purity is the same as the Blue Dragon V3

headphone cable and LOD cable and these conductors are free from impurities and have virtually

no crystal boundaries as well. The conductors have almost no distortion compared to ordinary silver conductors.

 

The center conductors are made up of a special varying sized stranded geometry. The silver stranding's

are mixed with Kevlar stranding's to reinforce the conductor making it stronger overall and less prone

to failure due to the harsh constant flexing of a portable system. The exterior conductor also acts

as a shielding mechanism. The cable can be used in either a single ended or balanced design.

 

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 wire is then soldered to a connector using high quality Cardas silver solder. Now how would you like to pay? :)

 

Thank You.

Can this cable bypass any iPod DAC?
post #3 of 14

Cursor hovering over the buy button.

 

Would be nice to see a photo of the USB B connector you use though.

 

I'm looking to pick up a 0.5ft Sammy Micro USB B to regular USB B variant to use with the upcoming Centrance HiFi-M8.

 

Do you offer angled connectors?

If you have a Dac with an Apple Authenticity chip suck as the Fostex HP-P1 or Cypher Labs Solo -R or -Db then yes the 30pin LOD to USB A or Mini USB B will bypass the Apple iDevices Dac and provide you with a digital signal:)

Same connector we use on our Full Size USB cables as seen here:

You have a picture of a 30-pin LOD to USB A adapter cable above and on your website, but it's not one of the choices when you specify to order.  Is this Black Dragon connector combo available, or only as a Silver Dragon?

My portable DAC uses a micro b port. Would it be possible to get a micro b to micro b LOD to use with my Note 2?

post #10 of 14

Yes we can. Are you sure the Note 2 will output digital to your Dac? As this is a custom configuration and cant be returned.

I'm fairly certain. I've already used like that. My main issue is that the micro-micro cable that came with my dac was not very sturdy and broke and it's pretty hard to find short micro-micro cables since mini-micro seems to be standard for portable DACs. Does your cable function as a usb otg cable? If it does, I don't think there will be any issues.

Then there should not be an issue:)

Sweet! Just a few more questions if you'll indulge me; my DAC has a switch which allows it to function as battery to charge my phone (although not while using it as a DAC at the same time), any idea whether your cable will be able to replicate this functionality? So far it's only worked with the aforementioned spoilt short micro b-micro b cable. It doesn't seem to work when I use a micro b-USB a cable into standard USB OTG adapter.

 

Also, how should I indicate what I want when I order? Your product page doesn't allow me to select micro b-micro b. Oh, and can I request that the plugs follow this orientation:

 

 

Sorry to be such a pain.

I would imagine there are no issues as all the contact points are used from end to end. You will have to email us to special order. We can not do right angled connectors as there is no off the shelf option for this.
