Hello, I recently bought a Korg Triton LE and since I know it doesn't have embedded speakers I bought speakers that have one jack and one USB port. Since I realized it doesn't have a USB port I tried the jack but it's too small. I tried my headphones for both phone and PC and neither work. It doesn't say what size jack does it use. What should I do?

I used my phone buds (those small ones you put into your ears) and it seems that it fits... but it makes no sound like it isn't connected. How do I know if it is well connected?

What was the solution?

The headphone jack on the front of the Triton LE is a 1/4" stereo jack. It's not a bad thing to have a couple of 1/4" male to 1/8" female stereo jack adapters to hand. A lot of headphones either have 1/4" or 1/8" stereo jack plugs, where the plug has a tip, ring and sleeve i.e. three connections, and these should be suitable for this purpose, fitting the adapter to the Triton LE when using a 1/8" plug.

Earphones for mobile phones tend to have a fourth connector (in the form of a second ring) for the tiny in-lead microphones that many of them have. There is just a tiny hole through which the sound enters the microphone. These are not really suitable, unless you made, or had made for you, a bespoke 1/4" stereo plug to 1/8" tip, ring, ring, sleeve socket adapter. The audio quality of mobile phone headphones tends to be rather poor, and will probably not do the Triton LE any justice.

Whilst the following may not necessarily be 100% accurate in your case, since there is no detailed info on which speakers you have, the speakers may well have a 1/8" plug on them, for the audio signal, and the chances are it's an active speaker system with built in amplifier, that derives 5V power from the USB connector only, and does not get audio via USB.
