About the AudioQuest DragonTail

AudioQuest DragonTail

The DragonTail plugs into your PC to help take the strain off of its USB port.

Protect your DragonFly® and your computer's USB port

AudioQuest's DragonFly is a terrific little DAC, but plugging a heavy headphone cable into it can put a strain on your PC's USB port. Relieve the stress with AudioQuest's DragonTail USB extender. The flexible DragonTail simply plugs in between your PC and your DAC to reduce the chance of damaging either. It's a must-have accessory when traveling with your laptop and DAC, and also works great for connecting USB thumb drives. Plus, if your computer's USB ports are very close together, the DragonTail's slender connector saves space so you can plug in your DAC or thumb drive more easily next to other occupied ports.      

Product highlights:

  • USB extender cable adapter (Type A female to Type A male)
  • for use with DragonFly D/A converter, USB thumb drives, and other USB accessories
  • USB 2.0 high-speed data transfer specification
  • length: 4"
  • warranty: 5 years
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

No Sweat!

Crutchfield customer from Denver, PA on 4/12/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought the JVC KD-R690S to upgrade the factory radio in my '96 F150 on my daughter's advice.It came with an installation kit(free) and I purchased the Ready Harness to simplify the task of installing it myself.It arrived in two days as promised.I went on line and found a video that showed me the process,and in about 30 minutes it was playing music.My old speakers never sounded so good.Turns out my old truck has a Bose sound system.It really is plug and play with this equipment.

Pros: Good volume and bass. Easy install(just look at the diagram)even if you can't read,it shows you step by step how to do it. Or go to You Tube.

Cons: Wait until sundown to install.Hard to see the display without those Tac Glasses that are "not available in stores"when the sun is shining.

Protect your DAC!

Michael from Charlottesville, VA on 10/18/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I owned the DragonFly a while before purchasing the USB extender. Whenever I'd lean back in my seat, my headphones cord would pull the DragonFly. I've broken too many USB flash drives to let the same happen to my DAC. The extender gives a little more length and ensures I won't damage the DragonFly.

DragonTail

Chet from Media, PA on 5/15/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The Audioquest Dragontail was just what I needed to optimize my desktop audio setup. I use it in conjunction with the Dragonfly v1.2, Jitterbug, and Schiit Magni 2 headphone amp. Everyone's setup is different, but the Dragontail turned out to be the perfect fit for my needs. The product is high quality and provides good strain relief for the computer's usb port.

Pros: high quality construction

Cons: expensive

Does its job

Erik from honolulu, HI on 2/11/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Basically does what it is supposed to. When using the dragonfly dac on my computer it kind of felt like it was taxing on the usb port. Adding this seemed to give it more slack and put less stress on the port. I have a desktop, and i can see how this could help even more on a laptop with safety and durability.

Pros: Helps put less stress on usb port.

Cons: None

A
Cheap insurance for the laptop and Dragonfly. Takes the strain off the computer's USB port and helps to prevent damage to the Dragonfly & USB port if they are accidentally bumped when plugged directly to the laptops's USB port. [ Robert  Dec 27, 2017 ]
A
Audioquest makes great cables. This extender uses one of their better cables showing how interested they are in providing high quality product to go along with their DragonFly products and also protect the computer and the DAC. [ SCOTT G  Nov 27, 2017 ]
A
To provide a flexible connection point to my laptop, so the DAC would not be bumped and otherwise abused when it is plugged directly into the USB port on my laptop. This is a lesson learned. [ Peter  Oct 14, 2017 ]
A
enjoying my dragonfly red so much. this extra extension will give it more flexibility and stress in my car when it is connected to my ipad pro. [ GUY B  Sep 10, 2017 ]

USB connections can become "loose", I decided to get the tail because of connection stress. [ Steven  Jan 19, 2017 ]
A
I have the Audioquest Dragonfly and when plugged into my laptop or desktop it is very possible to break it off if it was to get hit. This will allow it to hang to prevent damage to my $200 Dragonfly Red. [ Bradley  Nov 02, 2016 ]
A
filters out usb traffic noise [ DAVID  Nov 01, 2016 ]
A
I prefer to have something flexible plugged into my laptop because it seems that things sticking out get hit. [ Jean  Sep 30, 2016 ]
A
WANTED IT [ MARVIN  May 20, 2016 ]
A
The Dragon Fly sticks out of the USB port quite a bit and is likely to get damaged as my laptop or nearby items move around. This should prevent damage. [ PHILIP  Jan 13, 2016 ]
A
Space can get tight between USB cables and their outputs, this cable gives some room to operate and connect a DAC/noise filter combination with ease. [ Stephen  Dec 16, 2015 ]
