Fokking "media markt" audio cable plugs to thick. (and bought security cam trebs 99500)

Discussion in 'Audio Equipment' started by Skybuck Flying, May 18, 2012.

  1. Well,

    I tried to replace the audio cables for my headphone which I wrote about
    before.

    Turns out the audio cable plugs are to fucking thick ! or the headphone hole
    to fucking small ! :(

    I also bought a shitty wireless webcam lol. (actually it's a security cam...
    but looks like a webcam but cannot be used as webcam ?)

    I should have known better then to go to a store which has as slogan: "I am
    not crazy" lol.

    Well at least this store does still exist and have cables. The store did
    help me before with the receiver setup, though some of it's plugs were to
    think too... but at least some cables were ok.

    The cable's packaging stated something like 3.6 mm and 2.5 mm plugs but
    still too thick plugs (too much black plastic ) ! damn you audio cable plug
    designers !!!! MAKE SMALLER PLUGS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wasted money: 120+ or something euros damn...

    Well the webcam looks kinda nice on the outside and it has infrared...
    (trebs 99500 model). I think I saw it before in the store a year ago and was
    intrigured by it.. I probably checked it out on the website before...and
    thought better not...
    but this time I just could not refuse the temptation... the description was
    so good lol... only later to find out it was shitty motion jpeg and 640x480
    resolution... (kinda suspected it ;)) the infrared is kinda cool though.

    It has these little red things that light up as it goes dark... it can also
    work on power cable or remotely by batteries... so kinda cool design, except
    the damn resolution is too low... and no zooming... (also wireless makes me
    a bit nervous for interception...)

    I wonder if it has encrypted wireless... I also wonder if it can be
    programmed against... like for example the usb receiver can it be used for
    other stuff... hmmm... also the webcam cannot be used as a webcam... it's
    actually a security cam... which is kinda odd...

    Maybe there is somewhy to pipeline the video to flash... I haven't tried to
    use it yet in live messenger... maybe it's better to not try at all lol ;)
    :)

    Maybe I should do a proper review of it instead of jamming it into this
    message... But then again it's result is so shitty might not be worth it...
    but from a design point of view I like the little fokker ! ;) :)

    It looks like a rocket interception or radar station... then again I wonder
    if it made people nervous when I put it outside shortly to "observe" ;) :) I
    quickly removed it because it's probably illegal to "observe the streets
    with a cam" ;) :)

    None the less funny ! ;) =D

    It looks like the head of a little robot ! ;) :) It other words: it looks
    cute ! ;) :)

    It can move/turn a little bit too...

    Bye,
    Skybuck ;)

    Fucking Skybuck. You should know there are headphones with een combinated 2
    1/2 and a 3 1/2 stereo jack. My Sony V1 about 20 years old, got them. You
    can screw the 3 1/2 jack off te jack and inside you find a 2 1/2 mini jack.

    Fine and simpel solution for a small problem.

    Are these the measurements for the metal sections ?

    Did you ever think about the measurements of the plastic wrapper around it ?

    If not, bingo !

    The plastic wrapper was too big and did not fit through the hole (not the
    metal hole, but additional plastic hole of headset !;)).

    If only it was so simple ;)
