Default headphone plug

For case, like this:

or any in copper or at least copper alloy gold plated. I found ZERO. The best thing was the locking neutrik which is quite UGLY on a case frontplate.

any help?

i just noticed, anyway i'm looking for a gold-plated case-mount female TRS headphone jack. Wanting copper is unobtanium, but at least gold-plating...

Copper may be too brittle.

How about converting to balanced(4 pin XLR) wiring? Still brass, but at least the amount of mass will be greatly decreased.
