I made a concept render of a render of a stand that I designed. I hope to have it built sometime soon! If it isn't clear, the top piece of wood is held up by a 1/4" sheet of glass, I realized after I'd rendered it that it was at a bad angle.

I swear I have found the cheapest banana hangers ever. I was initially looking at bed, bath, and beyond and linen&things and only found ones that were either $20 or broken. So I went over to Walmart and looked around their kitchen section. Guess what I found for $5. This has to be the cheapest stand around. The quality is even better than the ones I found at bb&b and lnt. For anyone who doesnt have a stand yet you now have no excuse.

BTW, this was at a supercenter so I'm not 100% certain that the smaller ones carry these. For $5 my pricey headphones don't have to rest on my desk anymore.

Not the cheapest but definitely good. smily_headphones1.gif Someone mentioned it waaaay back years ago in this thread and I went out and found a pair for the same price myself. I slightly modded mine, I didn't like the way the stand marked the headband so I found a round knob, drilled out a hole into the stand and screwed it in. You can kinda see it here in the back with the HD600s on them. And a 3M hook on the side for the cable.

Built mine from some scraps I had around. Designed with the future in mind wink.gif can handle up to 6 sets of cans if needed (only set up for 4 right now).

Used small square dowel rods and drove them with a hammer through the holes in the rack cross piece. Then wrapped para cord arounf them to pad the head bands/protect them from the wood. Thicker section at the end of each to keep the headphones from falling off biggrin.gif

Pretty simple project only took about 2-3 hrs to mark, cut, assemble and clean up smily_headphones1.gif

Awesome man looks like an improved version of audio technicas stand:

 

What program did you use?  You might want to use acrylic and map gas to make the cut sides look smooth and transparent, it'd be cheaper and a lot easier if you have access to map gas.  I posted renders (much crappier) of a concept I had months ago. Unfortunately I never got around to finishing it now it's just sitting in a corner 90% done lol.

I used Blender (http://blender.org) to model and render it. I may make a re-render now that I have the materials, and know the dimensions. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any acrylic of the right size. Also, i'm just a senior in high school, so I don't have access to MAPP gas. :( If i did, it'd be a no brainer to use acryllic. Does anyone have any hints on how to make the glass stay in place in the groove? I suspect that I'll have issues with that. I also couldn't find plexi of the right size, which was annoying.

Sanded and painted an old chopping block from the kitchen.  Added 2 steel rods and drawer knobs.  Headphone stand, done.

Thanks.  But more like time, not talent.  I've got a lot of time in my hands.
