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!).
