If music is playing through the headphones, the switch will automatically change from the headphone output to his speakers. If he lifts the headphones while music is playing, the switch depresses and audio comes through his headphones again.

Made for me by a friend of the family - he's retired and restores furniture for a hobby.

 

The wood is NZ Rimu - and what you're seeing in the photos is the natural grain and colour of the wood - Rimu is valued quite highly here for long lasting furniture.  Once he'd finished, all he did was rub it down with a furniture polish (basically just a light linseed oil base) so the natural colour shines through.  So far it's had 3 coats (2 from him, one from me).  He's suggested I just oil it with furniture polish once in a while and let it dry.

 

I added a couple of brass hooks for the cable.  Seats 2 cans comfortably, and should hold my MS1i's centered - once I get the cable single-sided.

 

If there is anyone in NZ who'd like something similar to this - PM me.  Cost you roughly NZD $50 + freight.  He's in Invercargill and is quite happy to make another one.  For a really nice Rimu stand, I consider it a bargain.

 

Enjoy:  Cans are my HD600 and HM5.  Photo is outdoors to see more of the natural colour.

That's a beautifully finished headphone stand, Brooko.  Surfaces and corners are smoothed nicely.

i've been using these....sadly i had to stop as it was making a indent in my ultrasone's top head pad and made a small gouge mark in the Shure's headband >_< im thinking of adding some padding to that...only question is what..and how to do it.

For your dr. dre beats, you should dismantle them and remove the horrible equalizer circuit thats in there. Thats how they fake bass. When the button cell runs out, the headphones stop working and you need to get a new pair.

Hey everyone newbie here.. just joined head-fi

heres my custom made headphone stand 

DSC04536.JPG

 

Its made with 2 diff size cups stacked up on top of a small plastic container.

It also has a small styrofoam block to prevent the head cushion from getting damaged by the base of the cup.

 

 

Anyways, thanks for looking!
