I've got a couple of two-way headsets to be used with H/Ts.  The headsets use a connector that I've never seen to attach the audio/PTT cable, and I hope someone out there can help me identify it.  It's similar to a five pin DIN or mini-DIN, but smaller. Round; about 0.375" diameter; deeper than DIN or mini-DIN, compared to diameter; five really fine gauge wire pins in (sort of) two rows; keyed ratchet-ball retention.

The following link should be viewable by anyone.  It shows the side of the connector embedded in the headset. It's sort of "female/male" like DIN connectors.

Kinda looks like the Hirose circular connectors HT's used for a while.  Probably easier to lop them off and terminate with the phone jacks you need than trying to come up with a mate.

After some more digging on the internet, they appear to be TA5 Mini XLR audio connectors, and run about ten bucks a pop.  Can't cut them off, they're embedded in the headset, so replacing means modifying the earcup housing on the headsets.

Close, W2RJW, but that's a six-conductor TA6.  The TA5M and TA5F are this application.

Did you want me to send you a 5 pin mini to try it?
