This upgrade headphone cable question is slightly more difficult to easily answer.
Each headphone has it’s own signature. Each headphone amp driving the headphone also has a sound signature. Each of our cables also has it’s own signature, but the effects can vary depending on which headphone & amp combination you pair it up with.
To make it even more confusing some cables do better jobs with different music genres. But here is the good news, Moon Audio can help guide you. Drew will try to give a generic description of what each of the cables Moon Audio sells sound like, but keep in mind this may slightly vary depending on what gear you mate our cables with.
The Moon Audio Blue Dragon headphone cable is a neutral, very natural sounding headphone which is great for vocal performances. The Blue Dragon Headphone Cable is also a good fit if you do not want to add coloration but want to improve clarity and dynamics. If you do not want to tip the headphone forward or back then this is a wonderful choice as well. The Blue Dragon is also the best bang for the buck cable on the market today.
The Sennheiser HD600 has been one of the best phones for classical music because of their smoother, warm sound. The HD600 is not as dark and laid back as the HD650 and so the neutrality of the Blue Dragon is the better fit for the HD600 signature. The Blue Dragon is a great cable for a wide variety of music genres. If you are using a very warm tube amp and a forward headphone, this would be a good choice as well to keep the sound signature the same. The Blue Dragon is also the most flexible of the fill size cables and makes a good choice for headphones that use a single entry connection point like the AKG K702 and many of the Ultrasone headphones.
