THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD - Page 106

post #1576 of 3134

Thanks, guys. It was a lot of fun to design and build. Best of all, I was using stuff I just had sitting around, so it didn't cost anything. I designed and discarded about half a dozen different ideas, but this is the one I kept tinkering with, and I'm really happy with the result. I hope it gives others some ideas of their own to play with.

I made another attempt and hope this counts.

Cute headphone hook!

 

You can never have enough headphone stands, after all, what if you buy new headphones?

I was at the Container Store and thought that either of these paper towel holders would work and look pretty good. $20 each.

 

The first one looks better but doesn't spread the contact out very much on the headband.

 

 

 

 

This might work too, or it might be too short.

Mug stands ftw. Not as classy as a lot of the home made ones, but it'll do for now.

I just wrapped the top of it with some electrical tape so it wasn't as slippery and my a900x's are pretty happy with it. The stand itself was a whopping $9.99 and the tape was about a $1.50.

If you got a Build-A-Bear nearby, their "Bear Stand"s are $5, and already rubberized on top. Also height adjustable.

Obviously position in 1st pic not suitable for heavier headphones.

You could use the smaller LEGO head and the 1x1 brick as a headphone stand. I just personally don't like the idea of the pads pressing against something all the time. The LEGO head is about the size of kid's head.

 

 

Here's a stand I've been working on. I found this thing (I have no idea what it is) at the Habitat for Humanity for $4 and thought it had headphone stand potential. There's all kinds of old junk at that place that could be made into something cool.

 

 

 

 

Polished up and cleaned off. I also used my rotary sander to flatten this hump in the middle a little.

 

 

I used a foam texture paint roller over top a piece piping insulation for the band part. I will probably add some glue in between to close the gap between the two foams.

 

I'm thinking I may spray paint the black base and the black pastic on the rods as well. Maybe a brushed aluminum or navy blue to match the HiFiMans.

 

It's kind of odd looking for sure but it was a fun little project. tongue.gif
