    So, can anyone help?
    It looks like a 5-pin mini xlr, but I am not entirely sure. Does anyone know?

    Even better, it's a very common headphone connector....well, it used to be, back in the errrrr 70's?

    Its a so called "Würfelstecker", a special variant of a DIN connector especially for headphones.

    Wiki (in German)

    Adapters are available...

    Must be. Technical German is always an explanation of what the thing in question does...

    /goes off to look for examples in a patent spec

    Oddly enough, when I feed it to Google Translate it just comes up with "Square Plug"

    If you clicked through, then you would know it is meant to be a "Spielwürfel", which is a normal gaming dice. And it is Würfelstecker because the pins look like the 5 dots on the gaming dice for number 5 (obviously).

    I love this. The meticulous use of words to describe exactly what it is. Thanks for clarifying, too :)

    Just "Cube" really (Würfel)

    :D:thumb::clap:

    In Dutch it's a "Dobbelsteen", a stone to play "dobbelen" with. Dobbelen again refers to any dice game, which still doesn't say anything about the stone :rolleyes:
