Neutrik Rean NYS231L 3.5mm Stereo Plug Nickel 0.25" Entry
Does this really accept cable with an OD of 6mm?
All the other jacks listed that look exactly the same only state acceptance of up to 4mm OD.
Ahem...6.72mm is equal to 1/4". I can see where a cable with a 1/4" OD would be a tight fit. It will be about 1/16" over sized. Cables made by Alpha, Belden and others can be ordered from Digi-Key or Allied Electronics. It is implied that this is a shielded cable but if it is for headphones or other low-impedance use than you just need a three wire cable, usually 22ga-26ga will do. Without shielding you will have the option of a smaller OD. If you already have 1/4" OD cable and must use it be prepared to shave the sheath a bit. I have also used a reamer tool to open up the hole a bit when I ran into the same situation. You can get what you want, but you will have to work at it. Read the comments from those who have purchased this connector. They basically had to do the same thing with a 1/4" cable.
