Ultimate DIY: the 3.5mm 1/8" mini jack plug collection thread - Page 21

post #301 of 438

Hey there. I'm looking for a solid plug to replace the one on the stock cable of my Senn HD-555 (for both home and on-the-go use) - I've been using them for around year and a half and the original plug naturally began to break. I live in Bulgaria and the best thing I've found so far is lunashops.com - they've got some Pailiccs, Yarbo and Neutrik and ship to here for almost nothing. I'm trying to find a cheap ViaBlue T6s - it looks like a good plug - but everywhere it's to be found it's over $10 and another $10 for the shipping (a shop that offered it also offered for $6 the same Pailiccs that costs $2 in lunashops - that's why I think that the ViaBlue can be found for a lower price). Any suggestions? I'd prefer the kind of connectors used in Yarbo's (http://lunashops.com/images/upload/Image/3_5mm-yabao-2.jpg - I don't know exactly how it's called) (as opposed to the ones of the Pailiccs (http://www.eardio.com/images/magictoolbox_cache/0dea0a07ffd99456ca5e9824cc2aa42boriginaloriginalboth.jpg) and the ViaBlue; nevertheless I'd like to have the ViaBlue for its spacer thingies and the way the cable is secured). Thanks.

Does anybody know of any small/short right-angled connectors? I'll get the Pailiccs otherwise.

Neutrik NTP3RC?

Otherwise, you should make your own improvised plug if you want even smaller, I think.

Ah, that'll do. Thanks. I think I saw that one before and confused it with one of the larger ones, but I saw a photo of it and realized I was mistaken.

Nice thread :)  Let me added with some of my connector pics :)

So that's what the F12 looks like on the inside.

No picture loads.  Quoting the post reveals there is no html code for a picture or anything at all.  =\

That's strange, I can see the pictures from 2 different PCs confused_face%281%29.gif

I uploaded 6 pictures on that post...

 

Anyway, here is the direct links for the pictures:

I thought you were talking about Robot Metal's post.

The pictures you posted load perfectly.  =]

indeed aint it stupid? its head and shoulders above the rest in the race for stupidest mini of all time. massive barrel, nickel plate everything, socket breaking weight, strain relief from hell and for a barrel clearly designed for massive cables, it has solder terminals so tiny and close together you cant use it for anything even normal size without it being a complete pita. used it once, never again and nor have i ever been asked to use it again.

Those tiny terminals caught my attention first.  =\

Nickel plating ain't that nice, either.

 

I've messed with the various Neutriks plus the Switchcraft 35HD and DoubleHelixCable's mini.  I like the latter two a lot, very light and easy to work with; the Switchcraft is sturdy as hell to boot, and the DHC plug has a massive barrel opening.

Sorry to quote myself, but... anyone?

I'll most likely order from lunashops (when I get around some issues with my PayPal), but any suggestions in the meantime are welcome.

Anyone tried the Oxyaide plug yet - expensive but very cool ...!
