Probably want a 3 pin mini or tiny xlr. Should be able to source male and female versions at most of the common stores (Redco, Markertek, Parts Express, etc)

Does the HD598 not have some locking mechanism?  Found this a while ago: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/audio-s/item/hpc35hd59825/ and wondered what was going on since I have also seen replacement cables that were trrs.

Weird! That link shows two TRS ends.

From all the stocks i've found via google images, all use TRRS.

 

Can't find a TRRS male 2.5mm let alone one small enough to fit the HD 598 socket hole.

Any idea what this conector is?

A camera connector that somehow is now the standard for portable balanced amps

 

This is the matching plug for headphone cable:  http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Kobiconn/163-191J-E/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMv0W4pxf2HiVzeGJYwRlHzHtO53G2%2fcJfI%3d

Would this work?

I wouldn't use that unless you're going to leave it hanging outside of the housing.

If you want a 3.5mm jack instead, look for a panel mount jack that you can mount in the can housing itself.

It looks like an RSA Protector 4-Pin.

Having sortof same issues, i need to replace the cable for my HD598's, and the only way i have been able to even think of doing it is to solder it directly or making somenthing like mini xlr mod, although i can't find a space to fit mini xlr.......i reaaallly would prefer to solder it directly to the plug that goes to the standard 598 2,5mm hole.

There's this option:

It's small enough for the hole most likely, but will need a 3.5mm paired with it.

Too many connecting connectors might lower conduction = lower sound quality.

 

Let me know if you find anything, i'm still looking as we speak.

How big is this opening? Would this one not work?

i highly doubt that neither will fit.....the plug goes quite deep into the hole. i think the diameter of the plug (not the connector the plastic bit) is around 1/4" (maybe bit more accurate around 6,20mm). and if the plug is thicker it wont fit mad.gif

You're right.

 

It fits the male plug along with the thread which is another 4mm or so, so it's pretty deep in the hole (no pin intended).

 

Hard to find another alternative.

 

Looks like we'll need the original connector w/ thread or mod it with another input socket.
