Help - headphone socket adaptor needed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone.

I have a predicament that I'm hoping the experts here could help me with.

 

I have an iPhone5 with a Cleave bumper on it.

The bumper around the headphone socket looks like this;

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

 

I also have a set of Dita The Answer headphones with a plug the same as this;

 

 

As you can see, my Cleave bumper headphone recess is 7mm across (and 5mm deep) and my Dita plug is 10mm across.

Dita very kindly supplied me with an extension cable with a compact 3.5mm plug on it but it's far too long at 50cm. 

 

So, I'm on the hunt for either a right angle adaptor plug adaptor or, a very short adaptor cable that I can plug my Ditas into.

The plug going into the headphone socket on the phone needs a super compact plug just like this one (most like this are between 5 and 6mm across and it should be a 3 pole);

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

To give you an idea, something like this would be perfect if it had the compact plug on the end;

 

 

A few extra points to note;

The bumper stays and the hole recess cannot be enlarged.

The Ditas stay.

Any adaptor must be very high quality - I don't mind OFC or silver plated copper or even solid silver. I don't want anything cheap.

 

If anyone could point me in the right direction - where to purchase, etc, I'd be eternally gratefull.

 

Cheers,

Steevo

Problem solved.

 

1 x Furutech mini plug with 3.5mm stand off is on the way.

I'll cut the nice Dita carbon barelled plug off my new $650 IEMs and solder the Furutech on (done it before when modding my cd player so shouldn't be an issue).

This way I also keep quality up through not having to use an adaptor.

 

Cheers.
