These are simple through-hole RJ45 sockets with PCB mounting posts. These 8-pin connectors are commonly used in conjunction with Cat5, Cat5e, and Cat6 Ethernet cables. Because Ethernet cable is so ubiquitous, these are awesome for projects where you need to string a lot of modules together over a distance.
We used these, along with the breakout boards which you can find in the related items below, in the Sound Squid demo!
Note: The price listed is for one jack.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

This works well with the "SparkFun RJ45 Breakout" allowing us to create cleaner and more organized projects. I designed a custom 3d printed socket that allows you to snap this into a holder then screw the holder down to your project. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1915058
