I just ordered one of these today on eBay. $16 free shipping.

These look to be custom made which means someone is making and selling the special 2.5mm locking connectors. I sent the seller an email asking to get more details on the type of wire used and where I can buy the connectors. I'll update the thread once the order arrives.

The Bose AE2 headphone cable works! its only $8 and all you have to do is pull out the piece of plastic at one end.

Ignore the velcro in the pic, that is for my labtec mic so I can use the headphones while gaming.

That link is gone now. I have something similar but it is just SLIGHTLY larger in diameter and won't even slip into the outside jack hole. Can you provide us with more info on what adapter you got or the vendor?  Thanks!

 

Edit: Think I found it.

I decided to go ahead and take some pictures of it. I am planning on using this for a gaming headset so there is a mic attached to the side of it.  If the pictures are too big let me know and I will resize them.

 

Here is the headset with the test cable and mic.

This is the cable I used for right now to test with. It is the XBox 360 chat cable that came with my Astro Mixamp.

Remove the 4 screws shown here and then the plastic locking piece will come out. After the locking ring is removed screw the PCB back in place.

this is the piece you want to remove

Do you need to unscrew the 4 tiny philip screws to get to there?

Yes you would need to remove the 4 tiny screws that are shown in the picture.

In the next few weeks I plan on replacing the cables and adding an integrated microphone jack. I'll add pictures when that is done.

Now I just need to find out if the circuit board is actually needed or if it just holding the connector.

It has been a little while since I messed with these headphones but today I removed the circuit board and replaced it with a 3.5mm jack. I still need to do a little work on it but I'll add some pictures in case anyone was interested. I tested it with the vmoda mic and it works great.

I got the new jack installed and it works great. Here are the pic with it in progress. I still need to paint the putty black.

Did you just unsolder the PCB and resolder a 3.5mm plug? if so, could you possibly show pictures of the internals, cuz seeing this I'm thinking about doing that to mine right now too
