I've got an old set of Koss headphones that came with a standard 1/4" jack. For convenience, I took the 1/8" cable from a more modern set of AKGs and put it on the Koss. Since then, that cable has broken, and the jack cannot be separated from the cable, but I want to replace it with another 1/8" plug that has a screw-on 1/4" adapter, like most professional headphones do nowadays. I can't seem to find any such component parts on any websites at all... help?

Qables carries one.  No barrel casing though.  =\
Even though it says "for Ultrasone", it is really the standard threaded mini on many headphones, it seems to me after comparing the threaded plug on my HFI-2400 to that of my other headphones with threaded plugs.

wait so what good is it if I can't get a casing for the plug? what are you supposed to do to protect the connection after you're done soldering?

According to the link: "You can use heatshrink or a handle of the Neutrik mini that you can find here."

Check my sig, I just used one in my latest recable. A REAN/Neutrik 3.5mm miniplug barrel will work perfectly. Fill the insides up with epoxy.
