The Cheapest Method.

 

What you will need - 

 

1)Metal scale

2)Duck tape

3)A piece of paper

 

Procedure - Bend the scale according to where you are gonna place and stick it , then use duck tape to stick it , finally cover the part where your headphone is gonna rest with the paper so that it will not scratch the headband or  tear the cushioning.

The best way to keep it clean and elegant is sticking it at the back side of a monitor so that the nasty tape ain't visible :)

Works :D

More of a repurpose than a DIY I suppose, but it gets the job done!

 

Some sort of Weider exercise thingy clamped to the side of my desk.

Don't worry your getting exercise with that exercise thingy. Takes a lot of energy to reach over and grab a pair of headphones wink_face.gif

I even have to plug them in.  This is getting out of hand.  Im gonna have to build a hub that switches to whichever pair is not on the rack!

Well, a weekend and about $50 later - here it is.  Yeah, the glass is going to get dusty, but at least my cans wont!

Finally finished my headphone stand. Wood base was off a vintage cabinet that took me a very long time to sand it down by hand and a sanding buffer. Top and bottom face base using lambskin leather. 3 layers of clear varnish on the non black areas. Everything cut/sanded/glued by hand so no fancy machinery invovled, not perfect but I'm proud of my creation which originally was going to be for my LCD2's. Some area's might look off, that was just the one I took my photos. Enjoy.

With a base that big the stand isnt going to tip over! Doesnt that stretch the arc of the headphones?

Nah it won't tip over, I like big bases, it gives off a grand feeling. Nah the arc doesn't stretch it thanks to the thin layer of foam and lambskin leather over the top it just sits there. Btw if you haven't noticed, the headband on that Lambda pro is also lambskinned.

 

The idea sort of came from this:

Very nice work DefQon!
I love the lambskin it adds a regal touch to the stand.
Someone has too much Stax... biggrin.gif

Cheers troll, never is enough with this hobby unfortunately. That picture only shows a third of what I own. :)

Dang, nice stand there DefQon.

I must ask though: is there just too much sheep in Australia that you use actual lambskin for the base? biggrin.gif
