Moon Audio Black Dragon V2 Headphone Cable

General Information

Black Dragon Headphone Cable Version 2

This is the Black Dragon Headphone Version 2 headphone replacement cable is our premiere hard wiring cable. This cable can hard wired to just about any headphone such as Grado's, AKG, Audio Technica etc etc...It is a wonderful match for the Grado GS-1000 and AKG k701. The Sennheiser version is also available again. As well we can create a version for your AKG Studio line with the Mini XLR from Switchcraft

The cable uses a 4 x 21.5AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors using pure single crystallized UP-OCC pure copper with 7N purity 99.99998%.

Each conductor is made up of a special varying size stranding geometry. The copper stranding is mixed with Kevlar stranding to reinforce the conductor. Making it stronger overall and less prone to failure due to the harsh constant flexing a headphone cable receives.

The conductors are then surrounded by cotton and then a layer of Teflon tape.

The new version is now also shielded and placed in a polyethylene jacket for further protection.

For the Sennheiser version the pin connectors are soldered directly to the conductors of the cable. The splicing method used by other cable companies using a stock Sennheiser cable's connectors is a poor method. And defeats the purpose of replacing the cable. That method requires you to once more send the signal through the poor quality conductors in the stock Sennheiser cable as well as through one more solder joint. Moon Audio, Cardas and Zu are the only three cable companies I am aware of that use a preferred method of headphone connection method

The wire is soldered to the connector with Cardas silver solder. The default 1/4" Plug is the Furutech FP-704(G). The default 1/8" plug is a Neutrik NYS231B. And the default XLR is the Black Neutrik NC3. The wire is then covered in 2 layers of Techflex braid.

The cable is extremely smooth sounding with great low end and wonderful voicing. And will remove the veil all Sennheiser headphones just like the Silver Dragon. Most stock headphone cables are made of poor ultra thin conductors that work as a bottle neck for the sound.

If you listen to any type of music then this is the cable will suit your needs. It is a little more rounded than the Blue Dragon. We offer a 30 day money back guarantee on Headphone cables.

Latest reviews

Pros: Sound and build quality
Cons: Price(but worth it!)
Read reviews all over the net about Drew's headphone hacks and even saw him in action on You Tube. After reading reviews about the T5P's headphone wire build issues, (wires are flimsy) I decided I wanted him to hack the phones (w/Sennheiser HD 800 connectors/Black Dragon V2 cable) so they'd be detachable.

His work is amazing and an essential upgrade to the T5P's.

Their sound was initially crisp,clear, rather piercing in the high end and lacking bass in the low end. Now they still sound crisp but well-rounded with a smoother high end and a more pronounced bass.

The Black Dragon headphone V2 cable is a superior upgrade and I would definitely recommend it!

Note:$485 price reflects the work done to convert  the Beyerdynamic T5p plus price of the cable!
Any ideas if it will be a good match for the hd800s?
Moon audio seems to recommend the silver v3
