Default Quality 6.35mm Stereo Headphone Socket?

I've been looking around at various PCB and panel mount headphone jacks, but I've had a hard time finding one with gold-plated contacts or a good build. Can anyone recommend a good quality standard sized stereo 6.35mm socket for a headphone amp build? Thank you in advance!

I always use Neutrik locking as they match XLR sockets, though some people hate the locking mechanism. They are not shorting which may or may not be an issue for you.

NJ3FP6C-B - Neutrik

Or the regular style which are a simple design and super durable,

M Series - Neutrik

Silver contact Neutrik do seem to be what you often see

of course any real aspiration to quality contact has you cutting the TRS off and tossing it in the trash
4-pins, multipoint contacts eliminate the TRS common gnd return point contact resistance that couples the channels, its easy to get 10x lower mated contact resistance too
but there's no real standard connector, especially the micro size needed to not look silly with IEM

Thank you for your suggestions. I'm surprised with the attention that capacitor brands and wire types receive, and yet the headphone jack selection is quite limited.
