THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD - Page 118

post #1756 of 3065

 

 

Ikea utensil rack + copper pipe insulation foam.

 

I don't see much point in uploading my 2 glass heads for my K241 and K240 (which my wife and I use for TV), as there are plenty of those in this thread already... unless someone really wants to see it.

Ikea TP holder. More of a storage solution than a display stand since it's hidden under my desk, but it's accessible and out of the way.

I thought about putting a holder under my desk, until I realized I'd probably kick them all the time.

Sunday morning.  You guessed it.  Time for the "Tap Handle of the Week" headphone stand.  Happy St. Patrick's Day.

I got inspired by this thread and cranked this out this weekend. Total cost $7, wood base from Michaels ( I had scrap wood laying around but I liked the finished edges of this piece and don't have a router to do it myself, and this piece was only$1.49)...2ft of 1.5 inch pvc ($4 at Home Depot)...wood disc to cap the ends $1.50. The stain and spray paint I had already from other projects. Total time not including shopping and drying was less than 1 hour. [IMG]

This is great. I love that you gave exact details on where you get the materials and the price.

I've been following this thread for quite a long time in search for inspiration. Being a bass player, i thought it could be useful for me to have within hand's reach both headphones and amplifier's inputs such instrument and aux in, so i tried to reply the amplifier's input in the headphone stand.

 

The work is now quite done, so i'll keep you up to date with pictures as soon as the upload pictures feature will become available for my profile.

 

P.S.: I'm from Italy, so please excuse me for eventual english errors.

Hey guys, some really creative stuff here! Great job! Here's one I made.

I was particularly inspired by a cardboard design that was posted in this forum a while back :) I spent $0 other than the tools I already had.

 

Nothing special, I tried to keep it as cheap and minimal as possible. Could have gone for a more elaborate design but I made it simple to complement the headphones, not overpower them.

I added a slot at the front for my iPod Touch, one at the back for anything else (eg. earphones, amp etc), another for the cable. Oh and a crude looking hole for the 6.3mm adaptor lol

 

Afraid it would fall sideways, I kept it relatively short. But to my surprise it's actually really sturdy so I could have made it taller after all. Oh well maybe next time. I made it specifically for my current equipment, so I'll just make another stand if new ones wont fit.

Found materials? Check. Cheap? Check. Minimalistic? Check. Functional? Check. Good looking? Check and check. 

 

Great design doesn't look super stable, but I think it'll do.

Thanks bigsmile_face.gif

 

edit: Just bought an MDR-1R, can't wait till it arrives... but I wonder how it will look on this stand lol. I don't think it will look as good as with the HD449. Might have to design a new one.

burgoc02 that's a very nice stand! Fits the headphones perfectly, specially when the ipod is inserted smile_phones.gif

Some ideas borrowed and some new. I picked up a banana holder and tacked on a 3M brushed nickel hook to the side for the cable holder. Got 3 kitchen cabinet door hooks that I found for $3-4 each at Home Depot, straightened them up and attached to my desk with some magnets. 1 is above the dac/amp stack for the hps in use. Dac/Amp tray is made with a wire meshed letter holder bent in shape with some gel footpads to keep them stable.

Nice work JMACK45! Looks good!  It's amazing what one can do for a few bucks with a little thought!
