They do as long as care is taken to line up the Eichmann bullet plug side contact with the metal on the WBT NextGen female jack.

i had recently installed WBT NEXTGEN'S. i contacted WBT thru a email on this subject. they had emailed me back and recommended their rca's. i have used their's as well as eichmann's and others with no problem with at least making a connection and music playing. i guess if it connects and works then anyone's rca should would work with them.
their response was a technical one on why one should only use their's. i believe they were concerened with the way the other manufactures make their's, and how far the center post would push into the WBT'S female rca.
I did some quick homework, and there apparently is an issue with the edges of the Eichmann center pin catching on the innerworkings of the WBT jack.
Here's the article written by Steve McCormack from "On Sound and Music". BTW, he seems to prefer the sound of the Eichmann bullets over the NextGen bullets.
Eichmann Bullet vs. WBT NextGen Bullet
WBT copied the Eichmann plug with their release of "next gen" after ETI got big in 2008. Take a look at WBT and thier previous products. keep in mind. when talking to either ETI or WBT they will be biased and tell you "use our plugs with our female jacks"
why would they want you to buy their biggest competitions?
