thus 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.”

First Listen: How Do LOD Cables Sound?

We used the NuForce Icon Mobile amplifier, the Beats By Dr. Dre Solo HD headphones, and the Apple iPhone 4 for our initial trials, using both versions of Moon’s LOD cables.

How does the Silver Dragon LOD affect sound quality? Simply put, musical transients are better delineated. You hear transients with more accurate articulation, yet without artifacts that would suggest added distortion. Of course, one place you hear this most often is on high frequency percussion instruments like guitar or cymbals. There, you experience a more open and dynamic sound, which sounds more natural. A second benefit comes through greater resolution of ambient sounds, particularly as transients die away. This benefit is particularly important for giving a sense of a real venue being involved. Finally, and most intriguing to me, bass has better definition. Presumably this is because bass—particularly plucked bass—has plenty of harmonic content and this is affected the same way other upper frequencies are.
