Have a device I'd like to plug into a headphone jack of a cell phone. Wanted to start making some more professional prototypes; print my first circuit boards, etc.
Note that this is male.
Notice how the places to solder are super fricken tiny. What's the best way for me to connect this to a circuit board with the least amount of effort? I don't have the manual dexterity to solder DIP pins onto these areas in a quick and efficient manner (do I need a better soldering iron?).
Or is there an SMT way to do things (I don't see how there could be given the barreled nature of these components)?
Lastly, maybe there is a breakout of some kind for these somewhere out there? I can't find any.
