3.5mm Metal Stereo Line Socket


About this product


  • 3.5mm metal stereo line socket

Product overview

A stereo 3.5mm line socket in a metal barrel with coiled spring cable relief sleeve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to solder it It's not a problem to solder this but you need to solder very quickly. That means a hot iron and the right solder size so you can melt the solder in a parsec. I recommend a 40w iron and 0.8mm solder. If your solder is too thick or your iron not hot enough you will take too long on soldering and melt the insulator. One can always use a heat shunt too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality. Construction is poor, insulation material easily melts when terminals are soldered causing complete failure of connector. Dont waste your time.
