Moon Audio Products Wish List

I'm so broke now it will be YEARS before Santa can afford to bring me any of the 9 other products on Moon-Audio.com's Top Ten list. I own their Silver Dragon audio cable and am glad I do every day (attached to Shure SE846).

#1 Chord Hugo USB DAC headphone amp

Marty Note
Chord's inclusion widens the sound stage, makes the sound of even great headphones warmer and more intimate. Drew Baird, Moon-Audio.com's founder, knew this was going to be a great product and he was right AND it is Moon's top seller for 2014.

Such a great seller Drew made cables JUST FOR Chord to attach to players such as Astell & Kern and your headphones too.

#2 JH Audio Sirens Series Roxanne Universal IEM

Marty Note
JH Audio's IEM (In Ear Monitors) are MOLDED to your ear by an injection mold created an an audiologist. When you see rock stars jumping around with molded earphones in they are probably JH audio and the really smart ones combine JH's IEM's with Moon's Silver or Black Dragon audio cables.

#3: Astell & Kern AK240

Marty Note
The #3 best seller this year was the Astell & Kern high res player. Like an ipod on steroids A&K proves you have to start with great sound to have great sound in your ears.

#4 Fostex TH900 + Silver Dragon

The Silver Dragon V3 Headphone Cable is our Top of the Line Headphone Cable. It is a silver conductor based cable and it uses 4 x 99.99998% UP-OCC Stranded Silver 24AWG Teflon insulated stranded conductors. It can improve the listening enjoyment of most high end headphones and it has lots of detail, great energy, a fantastic soundstage with lots of air.

Marty Note
Wow, these enveloping Fostex headphones are enough to make me want to rob a bank. I opted for Shure SE 846 instead because I would leave these in a hotel and never see them again. Someone would have an amazing holiday when they found them in the rental car, hotel room or restaurant I left these bad boys in. Best for HOME Fostex's flagship sets new standards for headphone sound. Combine with Chord Hugo to really blow your mind & don't forget the Silver Dragons for pure clairity and Black Dragons for more bottom end.

#5 Shure SE846 w/ Silver Dragon audio cables

Marty Note
Silver Dragons for Shure is Moon's 5th Best Seller this year so I opted to link to my favorite Shures. I've owned the SE 425s too and they are great. The SE 846s are just amazing and worth the money. Drew switched out my Silver Dragons and until I have an audiologist shoot a mold of my ears these bad boys will be my constant companions. I am VERY careful about not leaving them in a hotel room.

#6 Black Dragon V2 Headphone Cable

Marty Note
Drew's Black Dragons provide a different rich, warm sound with more low end. I love clear as a bell pianos, horns and vibes so Silver Dragons are for me. You may like Black Dragons more. Both are great and for some music I wish I had both, so if Santa is reading this (fat chance) I would take a pair of these before everything else on the list just so my Shure SE 846 would have two sounds :).

#7 Audeze LCD-X Headphones

Marty Note
There are several Audeze headphones in Moon's Top 30 and you can HEAR why. Drew's engineering and Audeze's drive magic is a match made in music heaven.

#8 Cypher Labs Theorem 720 DAC

Marty Note
If you have great headphones you need great POWER too or they can sound like crap. The #8 best seller is Cypher Labs Theorem 720 and it pumps in more highs and lows than you've ever heard before.

#9 Audeze LCD-3 Fazor Revision

Transducer type: Planar magnetic Magnetic structure: Proprietary self-closing design, acoustically transparent.

Marty Note
The second Audeze in Moon's Top 10 and there are several more in their Top 30 prove Drew's ability to make amazing headphones sound insanely great.

#10 KingSound KS-H3 Electrostatic Headphones

Marty Note
Worry with electrostatic is no bottom end. Drew knows this and his Black Dragons make these King Sound headphones sound so good they are Moon's #10 best seller in 2014.
