Hey enoyzzaj, you must be the only Head-fier I know off that has a collection of 'headphone stands' and has only one headphone ;-)

I think its just a matter of changing handles on the same base... biggrin.gif

enoyzzaj do you work in a tavern supply company? Can we get a deal or a price on some of the bigger headed handles like the Chinook one? Could even be a blank that we could do up ourselves!

Multiple headphones, I just like the 598's the best.  biggrin.gif

 

However, some tap handles don't fit the 598's very well, and I use other cans on them.

All tap handles are on their own bases that I made.  So - there is some DIY on these.  Had the buy the bolts to mount them and I spent time cutting, drilling and staining dozens of bases.

 

I don't work, I'm retired.  I just like beer (a lot) and have been collecting tap handles for years.  Tap handles are like little works of art.  They look good as a collection on bases in the game room.  It occurred to me a few months ago that many of them would make decent headphone stands, and I've already done the work.  So I change them out every week, which allows me to enjoy the collection.

 

Stay tuned - next week the baseball season opens, and the week after that is The Masters...

Thanks for the info enoyzzaj!

 

You should treat us with a whole collection picture one of these days, would be good to see!

I love them :D great cans. But i went on a shopping spree and have a pair of HE-500's on their way. I'm kind of scared the FA's won't get as much love after I receive the hifimans lol :( But I definately recommend the FA's if you can get a hold of a pair, used preferably, because they are darned expensive (once shipping is included).

Saw an unused chopping/cutting board and decided to build a headphones rack.  The two poles/sticks were once a floor mop handle and the aluminum plate was once a part of my dad's porch sliding door. About the only thing that is bought from a store there is the cable loop. It is a drawer pull.  The total cost of materials in the making: USD $ 2.50.

That looks really, really good. And very creative too!

Nice Job!

 

Do you have a vinyl cutter for that nice beyerdynamic logo?

If so, what would you charge to cut me a pair of them? biggrin.gif

Hi there Head-Fi.org

 

You guys helped to inspire me to create a solution for my collection of head phones to keep them safe from my toddler. I finished up last night and mounted it onto the wall in my battlestation room. I'll be posting the rest of my station later tonight on Reddit :D

 

Basically, I took a pre-cut piece of poplar (soft and easy to work with) from Home Depot, chopped a few inches off, routed the edges with a round-over bit, painted it with gloss white spraypaint, ordered some Ikea collapsible hangar hooks per a recommendation in this thread some pages back. I'm really happy with the outcome and it looks so clean! I'll get a cleaner picture with my DSLR later, this was taken with my Android. I just noticed its a little of balance, left side is too low, will fix that tonight.

 

I chose white because the trim in my office is white. Anyway! Here is the picture of the final product. 

 

Cheers!
