Default 3.5mm stereo socket quality difference

Hi All,

I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend good quality 3.5mm stereo pcb and panel mount sockets? I've made a few little headphone amps in the past and the darn sockets seem to live only 12 months or so.

Thanks!

Check out the Switchcraft 35RAPC2BH3.

Contacts are all silver plated, and instead of relying on the contact itself for the spring force like most other jacks like this, they actually use separate little coil springs to provide the spring force.

Oh nice! This is the sort of thing I'm after, just found it on farnell - I'm willing to compromise on one coffee for a much more reliable socket! Thanks
