Before I put the wider piece of foam on my stand I hung them for a few minutes on the small piece and it left a noticeable dent in the headband after just a few minutes. I wouldn't want to hang them like that all the time.
I cut it with a knife. I wish it fit all the way around but it's not big enough.
You could use the smaller LEGO head and the 1x1 brick as a headphone stand. I just personally don't like the idea of the pads pressing against something all the time. The LEGO head is about the size of kid's head.
Here's a stand I've been working on. I found this thing (I have no idea what it is) at the Habitat for Humanity for $4 and thought it had headphone stand potential. There's all kinds of old junk at that place that could be made into something...
I was at the Container Store and thought that either of these paper towel holders would work and look pretty good. $20 each.
The first one looks better but doesn't spread the contact out very much on the headband.
This might work too, or it might be too short.
I use the SRH940 velour ear pads on my ATH-M50 all day at work and don't find them to be itchy. The HE-400's velours I do find itchy though. Bummer.
Someone earlier mentioned using the DT880 pads on the HE-400 right? Those are like the softest ear pads I've ever seen.
It's comfy indeed but I can't believe you guys are scrunching up the stock headband to snap all the buttons like that! I tried it for 1 minute and then undid it and the stock headband look battered and abused.
