I've only seen two types of 8-pin DIN connectors. The more common ones
(like Radio Shack has) fits my IC-765 ACC jack on the back of the
radio. I've even in a pinch melted out the center pin with a soldering
iron and it fits a 7-pin DIN jack.
I can't speak for the TS-950, but the special 8-pin DIN which the TS-830S
thru TS-940S used for the "XVTR" jack (supremely useful for connecting
receive antennas) is the same as the one on my FT-1000D. My TS-850S does
not have a XVTR jack (I wish it did!).
