TRS Jack from Parts Express. I used some 0.060" aluminum for extra support of the jack.
Now I can use any custom cable I make with a 3.5mm TRS!!
Beautiful! I'm going try this soon.
Just for confirmation, is this the part you used-- http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?Partnumber=090-317 ?
I would pay to have this done. I've never soldered anything in my life, though, maybe this could be a first. The audio plug bent a little bit while inside my phone and I'm only getting sound in the left ear. I figure this might kill several birds with one stone, I could replace the plug (by replacing the entire cable), make the cable detachable, and make the cable several feet shorter. Is there a guide for this, so maybe I could head to radioshack tomorrow and take care of this.
