Stereo minijacks are commonly 3.5mm, not 2.5mm, make sure you've got the right dimensions.  I've a nagging suspicion that 2.5mm jacks may vary in details from manufacturer to manufacturer.

It should say "stereo", then it will have 3-terminals for left, right, and ground.  Technically, 3-conductor stereo connectors are called "TRS" (Tip, Ring, and Sleeve), and 2-conductor mono connectors are called "TS" (Tip and Sleeve).  But, mostly they are sold as "mono" or "stereo".

Parts Express sells one.  Radio Shack has 274-249 and 274-246.  (These are listed as 1/8", which is the same as 3.5mm for standard earbuds & portable headphones.)

Doug:
Your comments about the number of terminals etc. are appropriate but I am curious about your links to the very common 3.5mm devices when what he needs is one of the less common 2.5mm devices?

Might also try 3/32 stereo jack- the US measurement of the same plug.

If you bought a plug and it didn't work with your jack, I'd suspect a bad jack before non-quality plug.

Might be a bit loose (or tight!);  3/32" is only 2.38mm

I am again curious about why a link to a 3.5mm jack is being provided when the original poster very clearly specified that he was looking for a 2.5mm jack.

Don

[edit] ...but a search at Digikey for a 2.5mm jack does indeed result in 3 pages of hits.

     Of course this may be irrelevant since we have no idea where the original poster resides.  At least it is not zero land.

2.5, 3.5, whatever - OP has disappeared, we're just talking to ourselves.

It also helps to search for them as TRS connectors ( or at least thats what the 3.5mm ones are called). there is also TRRS, which is the newer 4 conductor connector like the iPhone uses (allows mic use as well)
