Default Asus N550JK 3.5mm audio jack broken

Hello to all,

The 3.5mm jack audio socket of my Asus N550JK is broken and I need to replace it. So far I wasn't able to find it on any stores, so I need to find another one that is similar and that could work.
Here my problem. The original one (a really really bad choise by Asus) is a 6 pins footprint socket. It's a combo connector, so what I can count is at most: GND+L+R+Mic+Switch that are 5 pins. What is the 6th pin for? I can see inside the socket (in fact it is completely destroyed) and none of them are connected together.

Do you know any jack socket with 6 pins that I could use?

If I use a 5 pins socket, that maybe is easier to find, could I be sure that it will work? Will all the connections needed be at right position?

Any suggestion, idea or whatever is very appreciated!

Thank you,
Marco

Are you able to post pics of the jack?

I wasn't able to find a "direct" replacement on eBay.

Here's some to look into:
Barrel - Audio Connectors | Connectors, Interconnects | DigiKey
and here:
Amazon.com: 10 Pcs 6 Pin 3.5mm Headphone Stereo Jack PCB Panel Mount Connector: Electronics

May have to look at the datasheets to make sure it it has microphone capability, and will physically fit.
