Ultimate DIY: the 3.5mm 1/8" mini jack plug collection thread - Page 25

post #361 of 431

i see you also have grado 80s

the biggest compatiblity problem seems to be the size of the cable

1/4 jacks have a large cable but most 3.5mm are just the wires or thin cable

so 3.5mm plugs don't ususually have a large enough diameter on the cable end

i got a neutrik r angle and the large cable barely fits ... and then the wires barely fit into the plastic insert in the barrell

do switchcraft nickels or neutrik straight 3.5mm have enough room for a grado cable or do you recommend another model?

thanks

I used switchcraft 3.5mm jacks and rean jacks, the switchcraft ones are definotely much easier, but still nowhere near as easy as a 6.3mm jack

Did a search but nothing showed up. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the amphenol plug available from redco

Hello guys,

 

I need to create a short (10cm) cable and I would love for it to match my ATH-M50's connector. Do any of you know where I can source the exact same 3.5mm jack that is on my ATH-M50's? If you cannot remember how it looks, here is a picture:

I may have just found the holy grail connector everyone has been looking for.

 

Threaded 3.5 connector with solder points and sleeve that goes with it.

 

google for "ctp-p-353-05"

its the only thing that will come up

 

Webpage

 

PDF spec sheet

 

I have not tried to contact them but it may be worth a try

A 1/4" adapter like this one should thread onto that.

hey everyone...I'm looking for some 1/8" plugs for my AD700 recabling mod, and I was wondering if you recommend the Pailiccs TRS jacks?  I'm between those or the XLO HT's, but @ 6.95 per plug, the HT's are nuts, and the Pailiccs I can find (not from US but still the same plugs) for $2 shipped a piece...its from lunashops, I dont know if thats a good place to buy or not?

But I was wondering which you'd recommend.  Also, I need a TRRS male 1/8" as well, but I was looking for one that has at least a 6mm cable opening, to fit my Canare Starquad cables?

 

Thanks a bunch!

Checked with the company about those.  This is what they said:

"I'm very sorry to inform you that we do not have them in stock. Nor do we have any incoming stock for this item, as this part is not very popular.

The minimum order quantity for us to start production is 5K."

Does anybody know where to buy / have any Supra MP8s to sell to the US?

Hi,

just got an iphone 5 and with the bumper case, my L-shaped connector for my IEM no longer fit. What would you suggest? I need an extension that is as skinny as the original Apple plug.

Thanks!
