Thats really nice in a rugged way....

Love the knobbly bits wehere the pipes were joined....

Im going to have to make one soon when i get my headphones for music, at the pc. My gaming ones just hang on the curtain tieback, cos the top headband is really narrow.

The MDR-CD280's are so comfortable and to my ears sound nice....And i can get them for a fiver....Maybe mod them

I do RM at school (gcse) so i have access to tons of scrap wood, metal pipes, power tools, band saws, band facers, pillar drills etc... And a brand new workshop (well 6) next term!!

I count 9 pairs of cans around my desk within arm's reach.
Cable spaghetti of death everywhere, cans are getting tangled and I'm regularly tripping up all over the place.
I think I may be in need of a stand.
Too bad I lack, the skills to make anything as nice as what's on show here.

What did you use to paint it (method, primer, brand of paint)? That looks real nice!

i just sanded the whole stand, and just painted without primer... its flat black paint from wal-mart (the cheap 98 cents one), but i dont like the texture of the stand because you can see the solder joints and stuff, so im going today to buy some of that speckled stone texture paint, and repaint it.. that way you wont be able to see the bad spots
post #112 of 3106
Thanks! I think I might give it a whirl.
post #113 of 3106
Please post pics once its re-sprayed....

I personally like the joints ou could see.

I need a stand for 2 pairs (music & gaming.)

I love the woo audio stand, but at that price i cant buy two....

Should be able to do it for free at school...Just have to explain that i have two pairs of headphones, and im a tidy freak....well im not, just when it comes to my pc & desk...!

i just resprayed it today, with 3 small coats, and it looks awesome.. a lot better than before. it looks like its made of rock! very nice.. tomorrow ill spray the clear coat on, let it dry, and ill take some pictures
post #115 of 3106
here it is with fresh clear coat.. paint still not completely dry

it turned out pretty cool.. but i had the worst time painting it yesterday. i was too lazy to get a screwdriver and flip open the paint cap, and instead, try to pry it off with my hand, and when i did, the nozzle broke! so one end was in the bottle, the other was the nozzle, so while i was holding the nozzle in place, and painting, paint squirted everywhere on my hands, and dripped down like crazy.. and lots of air got loose and i had to spray it without the nozzle and it was just a bad experience..

Then again, p1ssing people off never feels so good. Makes me imagine getting kicked in my behind. Yeck!

Now speaking of cool buildings to make into headphone stand, try this one, ...



Sorry for the religious talk thingie. It was not my place to bore people.

I had a bunch of small scraps of 1/2" birch plywood laying around and have more headphones than stands - soooooo....

I don't want to be Deputy Downer here (especially on the Holidays) but a lot of headphone stands seem to have no point.

Very few actually save desk space, and almost all compress the headphone's cushions to some degree. I've already had to replace the cushions on my HD600's just from normal use.

I have a simple metal spring mounted to the edge of my desk. It doesn't look fancy but it makes the phones take zero desk space and all the weight is carried on the plastic frame instead of on the headband or ear cushions.

Some phones might not have a problem with headband cushions getting compressed but NO stand should touch the ear cushions, that's just silly.

Well i personally think it loooks better than having cans laying around, and a nice piece of wood is appreciated by most people. I prefer it to my curtain hook! I'd take any of the stands for some money!
