1/4" adapter that screws on

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

.I'm looking for the 3.5mm to 1/4" stereo adapter that screws on, the headphone jack on the cords of my headphones is 3.5mm with the threads for screwing on the 1/4' adapter.

I was too a while back and the only place I could find was Quables.  

 

edit: are you just looking for the 1/4 part or the whole thing?

I guess what I'm looking for is a threaded 1/4" adapter, most headphone manufactures sell them, just trying to find the best price , OEM or no name stuff.

 

Edit: So far I've found the best price is the Shure HPAQA1 at Sweetwater for $3.89

Can these adapters go bad? I am having a strange problem with the one that came with my DT 880.

L3000.gifNo... You might need a recable, or the drivers might be going bad, depending on how hard to used thembasshead.gif

Sony parts has it.  Just about every Sony headphones comes with one so just search MDR-V6 in the search box.

Positive?

Here's my issue. I run my Beyers with a Crack OTL amp. Last night I lost the left channel on them. So I break out the volt meter and check everything in the amp. It all checks out fine.

I swap input cables around to make sure it's not the source.

I plug my ATH-A700 into the Crack and they work perfectly.

I plug my Beyers into my Topping TP21 via 1/8" and they work perfectly.

I plug my Beyers into my HT receiver via 1/4" adapter and there is very little sound from the left. It's there, but really faint.

Yup, i believe the left driver has been blown. Not sure on the headphones, but if their under warranty, it will be free to get a replacement pair

But like I said. I take the 1/4" adapter off and plug them into my Topping TP21 amp with the 1/8" plug and they work perfectly.

I'm just going to order a couple screw down 1/4" adapters. If that don't work I guess I'll be getting a hold of Beyer.

I don't see why not... a connector could have broken loose inside, or maybe there's rust/corrosion on the contacts somewhere.

I think that's what happened, but I'm not going to fuss with it. Evidently Amazon has a great replacement policy(I just bought these two weeks ago) so I just filed for a replacement. If cifani090 is right I don't want to take a chance with messing around with them. Now I have to wait a couple weeks until the new ones arrive. I'm going to miss them. frown.gif
