I'm looking for a male 3.5mm audio plug (3 or 4 band) that can be mounted directly to a PCB. Both surface mount and through hole are fine. I'm surprised that all the usual suspects (Digikey, Farnell, Mouser) seem to have nothing like this. Any idea where i could find this?

I could of course take a regular cable mounted plug and bend it etc to fit but i'd prefer a solution that's meant for this purpose at least until proven it's not really possible

Something like this would be ideal (but smaller quantities and preferably not directly from China) 3.5mm PCB plug (http://plug.manufacturer.globalsources.com/si/6008828495047/pdtl/Phone-jack/1065872532/3.5mm-Male-Plug.htm)

Anybody seen something similar somewhere?

Edit: Preferably horizontal (as in the picture) but vertical might work as well.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Looks like a part that could be used in several interesting projects. I couldn't find any besides another source of the same kind in China with minimums ~5,000 pcs. Surprisingly specialty. There are some of usual type that screw apart and may be able to be panel mounted of sorts, might work for a prototype. \$\endgroup\$ – Samuel Oct 24 '13 at 18:18

  • \$\begingroup\$ Yes these are exactly what i want, except in quantities of 1-10, not 1000+ \$\endgroup\$ – Antti Dec 30 '13 at 10:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ Bottom version looks like SP-3533-02 from CUI. Available in minimum quantities of 1-10 from the usual suspects ;). \$\endgroup\$ – Nicolas Schurando Jul 10 at 19:33

Well I have done similar stuff, I used old headphones by removing the plastic/rubber. It might be not exactly look like the image, but able to serve the purpose.
