I guess as long as you don't give extra force on the headphone section, the bars won't have any plastic deformation and It will be fine.
I also saw an open box video where he twisted the bar like 180 degrees without worry (I am kinda surprise to see that though).
I went on a stand buying spree last month and picked up a AT-HPS500 which is nice, but pretty simple. Probably wouldn't pay new price for it, but for the used price I paid, I was happy.
I have used towel holders from Bed Bath and Beyond for headphone stands in the past and work well. Usually $15-20 depending on construction.
I am going to leave you dear folks...
My W1000X will go up for sale...
I got a great deal on a pair of W5000's and it is the next step to the W3000's... (don't want to have the wife faint over a 4 figure headphone purchase...)
It was a pleasure reading your posts!
Also, I want to offer it to someone here first.
The W1000X's look awesome. I saw a very small dent (real tiny) in the edge of one of the cups. The ear pads are not stock, I remember the ear pads to be more flat. These I can fit my ears 'inside' and they seem to close off a little better than the stock ones.
I don't have the original box, but I will ship them in a generic headphone case I bought on Ebay for $25. The W1000X's will come in a velvet pouch.
I am looking for $350 plus shipping and 3% paypal fees.
Please PM me if you are interested.
Moderators: I know I should post in the market place, but I want to give the REAL fans a chance first to get a real nice pair with very nice ear pads.
@karmanfamily: Are you confident you are going to be happier with the W5000?
FWIW, I have both the W1000X and W3000. With very particular amplification + source, the W3000 sounds better about 80% of the songs. With all else, the W1000X sounds better.
Just wondering do you know how w3000 compared to LCD 2 rev 2? I thinking on getting LCD 2.
