Meh, nevermind. After looking at the dimensions and realizing this model is only 8cm where at the Omega stands are usually almost 12cm, this one is too narrow for most high end cans. Well the search continues.

Right, so instead of making a new thread, I thought posting here would be more appropriate.

So a question about headphones in particular. I have a headphone rack that's basically a stand in the middle and a wooden dowel extending from both sides.

I'm afraid to put my headphones with pleather headbands on it because it leaves a semi-permanent indent in the center of the headband where the headphone rests on. If I leave the headphone on the dowel too long, will this indent be permanent?

Also, I have AKG Q701's, in which it's an auto-adjusting headband. Placing the headphone on it can cause the mechanisms to expand, similar to placing them on my own head. Will this shorten the longevity of the auto-adjusting mechanics?

I just want to protect the headphones and I plan on keeping them for a while.

Forgot to post back in this thread. Ended up going with the Woo Audio single headphone stand and LOVE it! Extremely well built and just what I was looking for.

Depending on how long you leave them on there, yep, it sure will. Thats why its important to use/have a headphone stand that has a nice curve to it. Check out the Sennheiser HH-10 for something a bit less expensive. I own many of them and have used them for years: LINK

Agree. The HH-10 has my preference over stands. Non obtrusive sturdy yet relatively cheap piece of kit.

 

@r_aquarii Looks quite good and like it can carry two heavier larger headphones. But it seems a bit clumsy to work with if you want to grab the headphone that's second. On the other hand, if the second is the one that's get much less use it's allright I guess.

I've been looking for a stand like this for quite a while! Is it available for purchase? I looked everywhere on the site, but didn't find it!

I LOVE Silverstone for PC cases. Probably would have gone with this one if it came in black and had I known about it. Were there anymore details about it in the email? Price or release date?

I've just been using this 1800 bottle forever. Flat top on the stopper distributes weight fairly evenly.

 

Recently picked up a few new headphones though, so I need a better solution for multiple headphones (Besides more tequila bottles)

Not too bad if its made high quality. I paid about that for my Woo Audio stand. But it would have to be available in black. Retail once it hits the market might be a bit lower too.

I bought this coat rack on ebay and added my own vintage railroad number nails to hang the cords from. Keeping with the railroad theme I added some insulators from my collection to the shelf.

Very cool solution! Also though about making something similar because I have very little table space for HP stand.

post #300 of 304

stylistically, I'm pretty set on the Woo Audio HPS-H stand (the cheaper one) for my Senn HD 598s though the only thing thats preventing me from purchasing it is that I'm worried that it could possibly damage my the headband of my headphones. Could it possibly damage the headband? more specifically the 598s headband?
