    Okay, first let me apologise for the vagueness of the following post.

    The jacks (or plugs? not sure of the name for it) on old headphones, some microphones, guitar cables etc... are big, as compared to most headphones you find nowadays, which have small jacks. Now, is there an adapter I can get to make the old big jacks fit into the new smaller sockets, if so, what does it look like/what is it called?

    Thanks, and sorry once again for the infuriatingly vague post. :)

    I think what you need is called a 1/8" Mono Jack to 1/4" Stereo Plug Headphone Adapter. Radio Shack part #274-363 cost $2.99
