The Eidolic 2.5mm plug is the first true audio-grade connector for the Astell & Kern music players, providing stellar materials quality, superior ergonomics, and a unique appearance. Version 2 brings expanded barrel interior room for easier soldering and cable fit, with blue filament carbon fiber trim on the barrel.
Eidolic Carbon Fiber 2.5mm TRRS plug - Version 2
Perfect size and shape. The 2.5mm connector must be a perfect fit for the exacting specifications of the Astell & Kern lineup, while allowing an easy installation of a variety of headphone, interconnect, and in-ear-monitor cables. We have a streamlined 10mm barrel diameter that will fit very compact jack layouts, but a 7.0mm rear opening will fit the vast majority of cables. The flush front face allows dimensional stability when mated with the music player, preventing jack stress.
Ideal installation conditions. The solder contacts inside the plug are thoroughly insulated and properly spaced to allow effortless cable installation. While all 4-contact plugs require extra attention to install, there is ample room inside the barrel so that your cable can be soldered with less difficulty than before. With version 2, the area around the solder contacts is expanded to be as spacious as the 2.5mm “spacious barrel” Eidolic connectors, while the rear opening is also nearly as wide, at 7.0mm. The barrel is treated to ensure its interior is nonconductive, and the plug avoids the use of magnetically charged materials wherever possible.
The best metallurgy for each design. A high-conductivity, high strength combination of gold and brass is employed for this connector. Superior plating thickness and complete plating of all plug surfaces set this connector apart.
Unique barrel aesthetics. The Eidolic 2.5mm balanced plug for Astell & Kern is incredibly light and compact due to the choice of materials, which also confer a near-indestructible exterior. The anodized aluminum shell is accented with our new black carbon fiber with blue metallic filaments, and the metal surfaces are textured with a proprietary process that yields a tough, matte finish that sparkles in the light. The classic gray Eidolic logo is screened and heat-cured onto the upper area of the barrel. The exterior is impervious to everyday wear and tear.
