    Hi all,
    Does anyone out there use a Fender Rumble head? I want to use headphones for playing at home, but my regular headphones (standard Sony phones) don't fit the phones input in the back. The input is too small for a regular guitar lead jack, but also doesn't seem to accomodate a small headphone jack. Am i missing something here? Hope you can help.

    Sure looks like a standard 1/8" (same as 3.5mm) TRS jack to me.

    There is also a 2.5mm version, but I can't think of anybody who uses that one.

    Should be the same as my Rumble 500C which is a 3.5mm TRS standard headphone output. I tried my set of Vox amphones with the standard 3.5mm TRS and they fit fine..slightly had to push a tad as i never usually use headphones but with a slight push in they fit and work fine.
    I assume the OP isnt trying to fit an unusual 3.5 mm 4-conductor TRRS plug? Some of my wife's headphones have those plugs with the extra ring for her computer or something..probably for the mic..anyway the experts should be able to help soon..hang in there.

    Thanks for that Giffro, all good now. I feel like an idiot, but I was just not pushing the jack in hard enough, as it didn't feel right and I didn't want to damage the input if it was the wrong sized jack. And Agedhorse - thanks for your previous advice on getting the 200 instead of the 500 for my EV box. I'm very happy with the Rumble 200. Sounds great.

    No need to feel like that Fluffyboy as I had the same problem trying to fit my headphones in just awhile ago to test out your problem...yes the socket is a bit tight and needs a gentle persuasion to go in loll
    Wander over to the Rumble club and ask any question on the rig you like. Link below.

    I'm with agedhorse and Giffro. Looks like a standard 1/8", AKA 3.5mm to me.

    Sorry I couldn't find it specified on the website nor the manual!

    Glad to read that it got sorted.

    *Note. Info taken from Rumble 500 manual but still covers the 40, 100, 200 and 500 heads and combos.
    The manual pic shows the Headphone Jack description but as G-Dog stated the size of the plug is not mentioned, although from this pic you can clearly see that the headphone jack size (and Aux In) is a small 1/8" (3.5mm) sized hole compared to the standard ext spkr out/effects loop/footswitch jacks which are "normal" 1/4" (6.3mm) size.
