Smile How do you install a 3.5mm headphone jack?

I have a pair of Atrios M5 and the headphone jack has broken. I would like to know if anyone knows how to install a new one ?
What brand if any should I get for the new headphone jack ?
If have the Atrios M5 you know how small the wires are.

Not sure by your post if you want to re-cable your IEMs or just replace the 3.5mm male plug. If it’s just the plug, Neutrik makes very good quality at affordable pricing, either in right angle or straight plugs, look here. If it's the whole cable, dfkt has a nice tutorial in the forums or for just the plug, google up tutorial or do a forums search, there’s loads of them around …


Edit: Found full cable http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...d.php?p=313523

I'm going to go there and get my denon ah-d2000 cable shortened. Kinda expensive, but there's really no other options that I see. Well, I could do it myself, but I have no facilities to do it at home.

soldering on soemthign that small takes some trial and error. I have soldered for car stereo stuff but when i did a replacement jack to shorten a cable I botched it twice. went and bought a helping hand and that helped...but still was messy looking solder job.

And that's why I want a person with practice to do it for me. When dfkt did a set of cans for me before, they came back looking like a professional recable tech did the deed. He's a pro, I'm worse than a nOOb. My cans are too costly to learn on,...

I agree, if you do start doing your own, start out by practicing on marvin’s stuff No just kidding. You can take some spare wires and an old 3.5mm jack, practice soldering and de-soldering on it. Also try out some shrink wrap and I think after a few tries you’ll be amazed what you can do. Edit: BTW the basic gear to start out is cheap

I have a broken set of px100's I could use. But, sadly, I literally have no space at home for any of this. Sux,...and I'm ready to test the waters.

Doesn't take much space to store the gear, btw I do all my soldering outside where I actually have more space to work.

Soldering 3.5mm headphone plugs isn't to difficult of a task, much easier than doing surface mount resistors and such.

That being said a helping hand does make it much easier. If you need anything soldered up you could send it this way TDS, cheaper than sending it over seas.

Thanks to you both,...I appreciate the the assistance. I'll either get SOMETHING worked out with work space (I discussed it with my wife earlier this evening), or Syndrome might end up getting business and mucho props in the future!!!

I recently down-sized my tools into one tool box, maybe I'll get a pic and upload it for you. Even I was amazed how many things I could fit into one small box. Though I do need to get more cable/connectors.









The box costed me 30$ at home depot. I've probably got over $250 worth of tools in it though. Fully loaded it weighs about 25 pounds and the box feels like it handles the weight well. With my box set up like this I can comfortable solder pretty much anywhere, even the kitchen table works great.
