Don't know if you want male-male, male-female, female-male, or female-female?
Either way, a google search of "2.5mm to 3.5mm cable" brought up a lot of hits of places to get every combination in lots of length options.This one
has a couple 6 foot options.
If I was you, I would go to www.kvconnection.com
and put in a request on their custom cable form for the exact cable you want, the exact length and what types of connectors (3.5mm, 2.5mm, male, female, etc). They get back to you quick and the prices are about the same as you see on the website for similar cables. You can request the exact length, right angle or straight, brands of connectors or cable even if you want. Very smooth and easy to deal with and they build it fast (built the cable I requested within a day). They basically email you a webpage with the new custom part on it that is valid for some time period, and you can add it to your cart just like any other item they sell. Their shipping costs are also very reasonable which is important to me when you're talking about a really small cable.
Another option if you want to buy local or maybe even use stuff you already have, is to just buy a 3.5mm version and use an adapter on one end to get the 2.5mm.
