Probably but will you replace the 5 pin molded on connectors or try to find mates?

by all means share the mating part # if Koss can give them to you

the less you do to the cable the safer - but you may end up cutting off the connector at the headphone end

then you could leave a few inches of cable to make a Stax to Koss adapter - head-fi, head-case forums have info on modifiying some Amphenol part # to fit Stax - which is as near a "standard" as exists for ES headphones

Now I am thankful for having purchased the extension cable when I purchased my Stax Lambda phones. These work wonderfully more than 20 years later.

jcx, depends how much you value your time, I would think ordering specific parts and shipping to modify the jack when you can buy a superbly CNC machined one from Justin for $29 plus $4 shipping worldwide is pretty borderline for saving money wouldnt you?

pretty sure he made enough =)

better pic of single jack



edit: my apologies I wasnt thinking. the ESP950 if you get that extension cable wont work with the STAX jack. you would need to retermiate the cable too.. hmm. I do think the STAX cables and connectors are superior

fine for the amp/energizer box - but what about the male end

wouldn't recommend buying Stax extension cable at 10x the price, have to deal with the US Stax rep

Hi Guys

The teflon connectors above look awesome. There are also 6-pin ones available.

However...

Is it possible to buy them directly from Justin (headampcom) without going through eBay. I hate ebay and also paypal.

paypal is not a regulated financial institute so they can do whatever they want with a person's money.

Have fun
Kevin O'Connor

Hi Guys

The link in post-15 goes to an ebay site. You cannot contact anyone there without registering.

Is there another way?

By the way, KG, I've been impressed with your projects but fear you may lose your hearing!

Have fun
