Extension for headphone wire

I know they make extension wire that plug in for music, male plug with a female plug at the end of one foot wire. This gives you more of a lead - they use it mostly with guitars.
I Haven't been able to find one for metal detecotors.
If not can anyone show me the how to and where to purchase parts?
Thanks Tony

most guitar etc leads are mono , guessing you want stereo I have found male ends good but finding a good female end not so easy might be better off making a longer cord from the headphones.

depends on how long you want the lead?

Amberjack, I knew you would respond, thanks in advance.
The Calrad's that I install the new speakers on have a short wire. So I was being lazy and trying to get another foot or so from a already made set up.
I don't know how much to add on, 18 inches might be enough.
I can't figure out why they don't make those for MD headphones.

have you seen this thread Tony? http://www.findmall.com/read.php?22,2262964

think you can get a good curly cord off ebay solder in to headphones and put a male plug on just search for curly cord and have a read on that thread, see how you get on?

let us know how you go?

Something to think about.
Any good stereo store that dose installing should be able to make one up to any length.
I made a extentions for my unit. The one I made plugs in my unit and then runs to the back of my armrest and mounted a female plug there , doing this my headphone coard goes down my back and plugs in at the back end of my armrest and is comfterable and out of the way.
Also a Ham operator should be able to make one up.

BigTony, I made a 90* bracket that mounts to the bolt on the underside of the rear of the arm rest and the female plug is mounted threw it pointing to the rear and I did one thing else different with it , I plugged a 90+ 1/4" ( male/femail plug that plugs into it then plugged the headphone into that. The 90* that swivels from side to side and that way it seams to help. I gave one of thes setups to a detecting friend and he loves it , i tried to get it back from him , he said no way. With it it also gives you more flexibility when digging.
Which I could do pictures here but I can't figure out how to get a picture from my iPad to here.
I can do pictures by email though.
All parts are available from RadioShack or a stereo store. You just have to make the bracket and solder three wires. I used a straight coard because a coil coard would be a tangled mess.
Hope this helps
