Where does everyone store their headphones? - Page 2

Going to pick up a glass head. . .

My HD600s are stored on the knob that sticks out from the top drawer to the right of my desk. My Etys are stored in either an Otter Box or the pouch on the back of my iPod bag (HeadRoom, of course). The HD580s connected to the Wheatfield are sitting on top of a folding-doorthingy, as are the Stax Lambdas which I got off eBay awhile ago for use when I build a KGSS.

The Glass head semms somewhat cool but aren't you worried about compressing the earpads on a full time basis ?

I once left my grados on my portable kit bag stretched from side to side.This distance is less than the size of an adult head but yet after leaving them like that for a couple of days the pads woul;d be compressed severely and would take a while to reconstitute back to form.

I think STAX has the right combination of form and size in their stand.Plus they address the dust issue in a nice way.

I keep my Omega's on the dedicated Stax stand w/dustcover. I also have a regular glass head and an Elvis glass head (thus the custom title) and now display other phones with these.

I've found that my Omega's conform to the shape of my head as opposed to the shape of my stands.

Maybe that's because they're on my head more then they're on the stands...Hmmm...

Hmm,has anyone noticed their headphones stretching with the heads? Just wondering before I buy one. . .

I just hang mine on my bedpost. I've found the nylon drawstring bags that come with some bicycle tires are just the right size to stuff a headphone into, and the drawstring makes carrying a breeze.

Maybe it is a foam thing.Headphones with "leatherette" covers may deal with the compression better.I noticed the same thing with my KOSS Portapro JR/Optimus PRO 25s.In fact,the pro 25 had it so bad a cushion replacement was neccessary

The only cans I own with foam covering are my rat shack/stax SR-3 which due to the age are pampered

Some of us have found a nice, small, handled case (very similar to the ones the W2002 come with) at Lowe's for around US$20. I will be buying more when I get the chance.

Uh, my HD600s sit on my desk next to me. Nothing special, I just sit 'em there.

I figure if a carbon fibre headphone frame can't handle sitting on paper, Sennheiser doesn't deserve my business.

Glass head at work. Coat/hat rack at home. The coat rack actually works great if you have a couple pairs of phones.

I also got one of those aluminum cases Dusty referred to for transporting the phones. They're $25 at Lowes and very nice looking. I went to the fabric store and bought some satin material for the interior top and bottom and it looks very sharp.

I bought a towel hanger that basically looks like a capital 'T' with a base. I have my Omega IIs on one peg and the Lambda Pros on the other peg. Then I just found one of those transparent bags that bedsheets or the like usually come in, and cover over the two 'phones with that. Works great, and it allows me to keep the Staxs hooked up at all times.

The W2002 & K1000's stay in their nice cases, the RS1's and W100's have taken up residence in two thick felt bags (they came wrapped around the two piece morrison pre-amp) the hd600's, 325's & HP-2's reside in the drawer with the felt bags sandwiched together hp-2's on top, the ETY's are in there also in their supplied pouch.
