THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD - Page 122

post #1816 of 2957
I can't use alu anyway as its hard to find panels to use, so that's a no go anyway. I may have to use some sort of acrylic, maybe solid colour for the base, and clear for the arm. I'm hopeless at this sort of thing anyway, I don't even have a saw to cut with.

I think I might get the base and arm 3D printed from Shape ways, the base in glass/steel and the arm in frosted plastic.

Take a look @ the pics of my stand I made on Friday. It has a black 1/2" acrylic base & clear for the rest. Fortunately, I have access to everything I needed (materials/tools) @ my work. I'm very happy w/ the way it turned out. I would've had to spend well over $100 to buy something comparable. If you need help finding a good acrylic supply, I could prob point you in the right direction (depending on where you live). I may even be willing to take some orders for custom stands if there is enough interest. Anyways, good luck. Let me know if you need any assistance. Cheers!

Let me know, I had a good time making mine & wouldn't mind making more. Pm me if your interested & we can talk custom ideas.

Thanks for your help. I would like to make a headphone stand at some point, but upgrading my IEMs is higher on my audio to do list, so maybe in the near future.

Looks similar to something me and 2-3 other members I've seen using.. (already returned mine though) $14 from BB&B (somewhere in the NAD 16 Review thread.. and a few pages back on this thread)

wooaudio.com also makes some nice affordable stands.. as does Bluecell(amazon).. and a bunch of members in this thread can customize you one.

I'd be interested if the price is right.

Um... maybe? If you're thinking that you can use solder like glue, that won't work at all, and aluminum is tricky to get solder to stick to in the first place (there's special aluminum solder as well).

I didn't see this idea here yet so i thought i'd post mine... works pretty good but i barely use it, i usually just throw em' anywhere.. they're only mid-fi anyways! lulz

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.

I gotta ask, how did you make the "holes" because I really like how clean you made it look. I know its pretty simple with cutting (duh) but I mean did you put a small strip of cardboard to make it flat inside?

hmmm... did you mean the part just above and below the iPod?

Funny, that part was actually just built up layers of cardboard, just like what you see on the rest of the stand (looked exactly like the layers above the headphone cable but just a different shape for the ipod to sit on).. but it looked too boring when it was all the same so I covered it with a thin strip of brown paper - like the brown paper at the top where the headphone sits (I cut it from a brown folder lying around that I didn't need anymore lol).

Didn't wanna use corrugated cardboard because it was too thick which would have gone past the edges.

 

Hope I answered your question :) but let me know if I didn't lol

My intention is to build or find a booth for more headphone, you have some project already developed?

I have 1 stand going out I made for an exchange of my logo painted on a canvas by a member here. I'll post pics tomorrow. And I have another one I'm looking to give away at the NYC meet too, just a stand I made for fun, nothing too spectacularly crafted, but it looks nice, pics coming soon
