Jack Replacement Service
See Questions Below For Help On What Jack You Need.
Jacks In General
We fit all of our Jacks using only the finest high end solder from Viablue. There is a 3 month warranty on all jacks replaced by us. There is also extended warranty available. The jacks all vary in size, weight and colour. Some jacks are Nickel, and some jacks are Gold plated. Some people say there is as little as 0.1% difference in gold's favour, where as some say the gold sounds warmer as the silver sounds colder. It all really boils down to a matter of preference. We only fit 3 (TRS) and 4 (TRRS) pole jacks. The 3 pole are for all headphones and earphones without a remote/mic attached, and the 4 pole are used with all headphones and earphones with a remote or mic attached to them. The 3 pole will work with headphones and earphones with a remote/mic attached, but you will lose all functionality of the remote/mic. The four pole however can be fitted regardless. Most of these jacks come with strain relief protection. You will see on the photos and in the shop descriptions more details on the item/s you are interested in. We regret to inform you that we do not provide warranty on the jack replacement service to customers who choose to use their own jacks for us to fit for them but we do repair them. Please note, our warranty applies to our work only, not the manufacturers.
Once you have selected the jack replacement service as your product it's time to add your "options" the options below are your choices.
The Slimline Jack
These 3.5mm 3 Pole Gold Plated Jacks are slightly smaller than usual and have a nice look about them. The Jacks themselves have no cable protector so we add tubing to the top of the jack, this usually matches the colour of the jack or is close to it. The casing is a glossed stylish metal shiny. Harsh and rigorous abuse with these jacks could result in wear and tear severing the cable without a protector so it is important to take care and not to pull or bend the cable where the tubing is fitted. Overall these Jacks are of reasonably good quality and a great choice when selecting your replacement due to their slim design. These jacks can be selected to accept cables from 2.0 to 4.5 mm tubing is added for the smaller diameter size. The Slimline is available as a 3 pole and a 4 pole jack. Ideal for Headphones and Earphones.
The Right Angle
The right angle is a very nice looking Gold Plated 3.5mm 3 Pole Black & Gold Right Angled Jack but not as small as the slimline. These Jacks can with-stand a fair bit of abuse and we rate these highly, they are of great quality and have excellent durability for the cost. We have repaired many set's of headphones and earphone's too with these jacks and we find them an truly excellent choice when selecting your replacement, we say they are the most reliable jacks for the long term due to the internal wiring split down 2 sections to avoid any contact with the other channels, these jacks also grip the cable nicely to withstand pulls with their chuck style cable relief. We only fit 2 types of right angles currently, the Neutrik and the Standard. The Neutrik has black housing and gold plated jack and more reliable and less block in size than that of the Standard nickel plated jack. Unfortunately Neutrik only do the right angled jack as a 3 pole jack whereas the standard is available as a 4 pole jack. Both types of jack accept cables from 2.0 to 4.5 mm. Ideal for Headphones and Earphones.
The Neutrik Straight
Neutrik is a Liechtenstein company which manufactures connectors which are used in audio and video recording studios and concert sound systems.The Neutrik Rean is a very nice looking Gold Plated 3.5mm 3 Pole Black & Gold Jack sporting the name Rean on the connector itself. These Jacks are very durable and get our vote, they are of great quality and have excellent durability for the cost. The jack has a crimp style cable grip but no cable protector, however we strongly recommend these type of jacks when choosing your replacement. The jack comes in 3 flavours, black housing/gold plated jack, silver housing/gold plated jack or black housing silver nickel jack. The Neutrik Straight is only available as a 3 pole jack accepting cables from 2.0 to 4.5 mm. We usually finish these with tubing for smaller diameters. Ideal for Headphones but can be fitted to Earphones.
The PRO SIGNAL (Spring Relief)
This is a superb looking jack and come in many flavours, one has a gold housing and gold plated jack and the other is nickel plated with nickel housing and they all come in different styles. These Jacks can with-stand a fair bit of abuse and we rate them quite highly, they are of great quality and have excellent durability for the cost. We have repaired many set's of headphones and earphone's too with these Jacks and we can fairly say that overall their resistance for prolonged usage is very reassuring with regards to last-ability and general wear and tear, these Jacks are a excellent choice when selecting your replacement. All the PRO SIGNAL jacks have a spring strain relief and are best fitted to cables of 4mm. Ideal for Headphones but can be fitted to Earphones.
The PRO SIGNAL (Budget)
These jacks are straight jacks and are in our budget range. They have a black plastic housing and nickel jack. The jacks themselves can with-stand a fair bit of abuse but not as much as the PRO SIGNAL (Standard) however considering the price, don't be fooled these are jacks for people who just want their music back, our personal preference though is the PRO SIGNAL Silver and Gold jacks and the reason being because their spring coil rather than the black plastic protector. As for our budget range these jacks are pretty long lasting and have proven to be a popular choice with many of our customers. We recommend these jacks to be fitted to cables from 2.0 to 4.5 mm. Overall these Jacks are a excellent choice if you simply want music to your ears. Ideal for Headphones and Earphones.
The PRO SIGNAL (Standard)
These jacks are straight jacks and are a great replacement choice. They have a black plastic housing and a gold plated jack. The jacks themselves can with-stand more abuse than that of the standard this is due to it having an internal cable strain relief. I personally recommend these jacks as they are well designed internally and have larger solder points meaning less chance of the wiring going astray and touching the other points. our personal preference though is the PRO SIGNAL Silver and Gold jacks and the reason being because their spring coil rather than the black plastic protector. You can't go wrong with this jack normally. We recommend these jacks to be fitted to cables from 2.0 to 4.5 mm. Ideal for Headphones and Earphones.
The Superb looking high quality VEOZ 3.5mm 4 Pole Silver Jack with gold connector (only available in 4 pole). These Jacks are of great quality and are very durable, we recommend they are fitted to headphones preferably due to the weight and also due to the coil the cable exits of out. They are of great quality and very reliable which is reassuring with regards to last-ability and general wear and tear. These VEOZ Jacks are a excellent choice when selecting your replacement. We recommend these jacks to be fitted to cables from 4.0 to 4.5 mm. Ideal for Headphones.
Viablue is probably the best connector on the market today, available in small or large and sporting a gold, white design with their name imprinted on the jack itself. The Viablue is only available in 3 pole. These Jacks are made of the highest possible quality and can with-stand a massive amount of abuse we rate these very highly, they are of superb quality and have the best long lasting durability. We have repaired many set's of headphones and earphone's too with these Jacks and we find them an truly excellent choice when selecting your replacement. They have bronze contact pins which are 24kt gold plate coated. The connector shell itself is made from aluminum and fits all cables with their diameter decreasing capability. Highly recommended.
