I've been using a 10 cm right-angled headphone jack extension cable for almost a year. I use this in my ClipZip, and have been happy with it. I had read on one of the past threads about something like that, so I searched eBay. I found a supplier which ships from Hong Kong, and it arrived quickly, I thought, within a couple weeks. Inexpensive, costing currently $2.39, and $1.49 shipping, it's available here http://www.ebay.com/itm/271897224842...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
Since ClipZips and Pluses are no longer made, this may lengthen the usefulness by taking off some of the pressure on the jack, of connect/reconnect (etc.) of your phones.
