Threaded male TRS connector?

Post by UnlikeKurt » Sat Aug 11, 2012 6:54 pm

I have a handfull of headphones that need to have new plugs soldered on.
Can anyone recommend a good model of 1/8" plug that is threaded for the screw on 1/4" adaptors?

Thanks!

I've tried looking for those Sony style 1/8" with the threaded 1/4" adaptors, but came up empty handed.

I decided to swap to a hard-wired 1/4" TRS plugs on the headphones (Neutrik "slim series") and forego the need for 1/4" adaptors. Of the multiple sets of cans you need to repair, how many will actually EVER need to plug into an 1/8" socket? :wink:

Shure makes that same adapter for their own headphones, and it'll fit Sony headphones just fine. Contact your Shure dealer!

Seems like it shouldn't be that hard to find, but indeed it is! :(

Only thing I could find is Qables.com somewhere in the EU.

Thanks everyone!
I ended up just going with randyman and using 1/4" connectors.
In reality the odds of me plugging any of these particular headphones into a mini jack is extremely unlikely.

Plus, Radio Shack always has some 1/4" female-to-1/8" male stereo adaptors somewhere in the store :wink: .
