Introducing the Headphone Disconnector. Insert it between your equipment and your headphone cable. The exclusive magnetic coupled connector is designed to release gracefully when force is applied to the cable. This prevents damage to your headphones, cables and equipment. It might even prevent injury.
The magnets have been carefully engineered for the optimum holding strength. Strong enough to stay together during normal use. But weak enough to come apart quickly in the event of excessive force. Additionally, the magnets are oriented so that the connector cannot be plugged in backwards.
Available with 1/4inch or 1/8inch (6.3mm and 3.5mm) connectors. There are even versions that can be used as adapters to convert a plug in one size to a jack in a different size. See data sheet for details.
