TOA Radio Mic Connections Can not find the right connector.
Posted 18 February 2012 - 02:46 PM
I have looked after a local church drama groups sound for the past few years but now it is closing down due to lack of interests they have given me (for free) the 4 wireless microphones they bought last year. Obviously I am rather pleased as they are useful but I am trying to get some new headsets for them but I can not find any with the right jack on the end. They need a 3.5mm jack which is fine however they have to be incredibly thin to fit into a hole in the belt pack and then plug in. Is quite effective strain relief but a bit of a pain. I bought some of the ú5 CPC microphones and a selection of different 3.5mm jacks to solder on but none of them fit. Hence my question does anyone know where I can buy these very thin jacks? They are 8mm (ish) wide.
The connecter on the microphones current unsuitable headset: http://s1152.photobucket.com/albums/p498/wpg3121/?action=viewĄt=WP_000050-1.jpg
The socket on the beltpack that is being so very awkward: http://s1152.photobucket.com/albums/p498/wpg3121/?action=viewĄt=WP_000053-1.jpg
Any help would be very gratefully received,

If the lapel mic you bought has got a 3.5mm jack already fitted you could buy a matching line socket to fit.

I would do that but I am reluctant to cut up the working headsets as I am sure they will be useful for some things... But not for the theater I am doing in a few weeks time :/ It is a very good Idea but I would like to avoid it for as long as possible....

Then you just need to also put a matching connector on your existing unsuitable headset so that they can still be used via the adaptor lead.
