Overview

Our take on 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

What's in the Box:

  • 4" USB extenstion cable (w/ a female USB type-A connector on one end and a male USB type-A connector on other end)

You really can't go wrong with AudioQuest. All of their products are high quality products; that will last too. The Dragon Tail is just the right length with nice, snug fitting connectors.

Protect your DAC!

Michael from Charlottesville, VA on 10/18/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Crutchfield Customer Review (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

Minimal equipment needed for great sound
