also there are a few handles on eBay although... I'm not sure any one has ever asked you but how do you get you Tap Handles :O 

 

Ouch!  No use crying over spilled milk, but beer - now that's a different story...

 

Estate sales, family, friends (I know a few that have owned/run bars), sometimes I barter for them at bars - I give them my card, and tell them when they no longer carry that brand, I'm interested, some I've gotten from Ebay.  A few at antique stores.

Thanks!

 

I also collect license plates - when I have the time in a few months, I'm going to work on a stand made from plates.

YEA it totally does! Although I don't feel that thin little wood panel will do my headphones justice. So I'm going to  leave the hook in the front but first Oh yea I have to remove that hook... I'm not sure what to do with that Hook but to wrap it in Padding so it can be WORTHY of my headphones IT MUST BE REMOVED... 

 

Oh Meh no idea... but either way I may figure it out

Yeah, It's too thin and bit into the headband padding. That's why I added the table leg feet. I drilled a hole into the center and screwed it in. Now it's round and smooth and doesn't mess with the band. smily_headphones1.gif
The hook is too low to be of any use other than cable hook so I just threw it away. It's only screwed in so easy to do.

I could esaily screw it in if I had a DRILL but I dont... all I have is a hammer a nail and MAYBE a screw with which to maybe hand crank it in with... I do have a foam log I was using  for headphone cords... either way... It's a little weird to see you have the same stand I just got the idea to buy... seeing as I just shipped you a pair of ePads... did we some how have a MENTAL TRANSFER? Maybe so

 

Either way I'm going to pimp out my banana hanger <3 

 

Also... WOW Adele's Live Album actually sounds GOOD on the Dt 880 :O just shows how BAD the CD master really is!

I have looked everywhere at Wal-mart for those wooden banana hangers, and can't seem to find them anywhere! And it's a Super-center wal-mart! What department do I need to be looking in? For $5 they are pretty good-looking headphone stands!

Thank you for the info, I'll go look in that area. I was looking in household appliances and kitchen items (since I figured most people would have their bananas in the kitchen. Thank you!

Just thought I'd share my little update :)
I actually posted the original one earlier this year, here you can see the before and after shots. I added a base, and now I've lost the minimalist construction that the defined the original design, but since I have new headphones I think it's time for a more sculptural look.

 

The black thing in the middle is actually just a silicone case for my Zune 8GB player - which is now completely messed up with the battery completely swollen, punching the case open.. aaand so it couldn't fit in my stand anymore, as you can imagine. Wish I still had my iPod touch.... I lost that one on the train/train station :/

 

The base is actually hollow, was too lazy to fill it up.. it holds quite well anyway, even the original design, since the headphones aren't that heavy so it's more sturdy than it looks.

Again, it's just cardboard lying around in my house so it cost me nothing, except for the glue and knife I already had, and a bit of time on my hands :) extremely cheap and simple to make!
