THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD - Page 89

post #1321 of 2932

Here is the finished "Dual Omega" Yaki made.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am horrible at taking pictures. I'll take a few more

when I get my headphones back from being hardwired.

 

Yaki did a great job, stand is very nicely built.

I tried for 2 weeks to come up with something I would like for a headphone stand design. I made 5 different ones and wasnt happy with any of them in the end. So I said the heck with it and just built a whole new computer desk and incorporated my headphone stands into it......lol

Hmmmm could be a trend, desks with built in headphone stands!

Great Job!

Already posted in  another thread, but I finally made a DIY stand over the past two afternoons from some plexi, aluminium L-bars and peice of rosewood from trimming the garden a couple years back. I really need better tools than a large wood saw and a hacksaw. It's clearly the one on the left, the one on the right is a banana hook.

That lexan looks to be bent under the aluminum L channel. Was that sturdier than a channel in the wood base? Or just because of the tool shortage? biggrin.gif

And get those T50RP's off that Banana Hook! tongue.gif

It's actually screwed into the alu, which is then screwed into a thicker piece of plexi, which is then screwed into the wood, which is the lid for the box where I keep all my portable rig and some thinner cables. Made the box 10 years ago(when I was 10).

 

The T50RP usually goes in the brown carry pouch (homemade) at the back, what's wrong with it being on a banana stand? :P

 

Hmm, that's a lot of "which" in the first sentence.

Cool, I didn't realize it was a storage box as the base, what a great idea! biggrin.gif

 

There is just something about seeing great cans on a skinny wire banana stand that makes me cringe... tongue.gif

What did you use to make this?  (the headphone stand part)...not the wood.

 

Readily available pieces from a home improvement store...or...?

I just used the left over wood from making the table top, cut it to 3/4"x3/4" for the uprights, and used a 5/8" dowel rod for the rod. 

I am pretty sure you can buy square stock at a Lowes, Home Depot, Menards though.

Not really a stand, more so a rack... but here's mine anyway!

 

The room is a mess, but basically made cardboard hooks to the shelf, dollar stop curtain rods, and cardboard hooks. Probably will be making more to fill that void above the PS2/3.

That or make more cardboard stands to go with the banana hook on the top layer. Thus the empty packing tape rolls.

 

But... Slowly moving towards just making a full wall with peg board and hooks (dual ones instead of this) since it's just so much less work!

I liked your cardboard multi stand idea, very nice!

Thanks!

As you can see it's limited in terms of convenience. I have to slide the hooks around to take out any headphone, and excessive length in cables (such as all vintage headphones) don't really get much cable management except minor wrapping. Since it's using curtain rods, however, I can always extend one side and add more headphones to it! The rods are fixed on both sides from both upwards and downward motion. Not really useful unless for single entry headphones though.
