Sony NW-HD5 connector?



Sorry to everyone if I'm being dumb, but what is the rectangular connector next to the earphone connector for. Is there a specific line-out cable you can but. I'm just using a standard jack to phono lead. Cheers Chip

It's for the remote (which also plugs into the headphone jack at the same time). I have a 35ELK remote which is very cheap on eBay and works great.

The line out uses the headphone jack only.


Thanks mate. I'll get one of those remotes, they look quite good

i bought one for my Brothers HD-5 *i'll be also getting one* and i must have got a faulty one. When i put the remote all the way up to the tatty's, the left headphone would screw up and basically have very little bass and treble, *ie vocal content*

Sent it back a few days ago, Hopefully i'll get another one sooon.. :D
