I think I'm terrified of headphone stands, no matter how good they look. I probably wouldn't take one even if they were free, I'd always get this weird (and probably unfounded) feeling that gravity / headband tension would be compressing the pads while they phones are on the stand.

I can definitely see what you mean. I don't know if I want my grado bowl pads to get compressed so I didn't buy it

I'm sharing the exact opinion... It's like wearing them all the time. I prefer stands that don't touch the pads, I made one myself. I'm also worried about the band loosing the tension. I don't know how soon it would happen but metal do wear over use.

I'm using the walnut one for the T1's and i like it, looks classy and i'm not too worried about the earpads wearing out, they're the same as the day i bought them. If they do go however i'll just get some new pads no big deal. Also the added dustcover is very handy...

I have one holding my T1 and another my Grado RS1. They seem to do a good job - they fit well (especially the T1 - Grado is very slightly dwarfed) and don't over-tension the headbands as far as I can tell. They look good.

 

They do not work for my LCD2 which - with the plugs - are too tall/deep. I plan to DIY a suitable stand in time.

I might if it was on sale for a little cheaper but i'm not sure if it will keep my AKG's headband stretched which wouldn't be great.

That's why I added the price to the Poll, would you buy it if it would only cost € 99,-?

 

Many thanks,



and you dont think 99 euros is expensive for a bit of wood?   im sorry but stands at those sorts of prices can go jump.  its a stand ffs show me on what planet a small lump of wood deserves to cost anywhere near that or are you going to tell it will make my headphones sound better?

Yes, love it. Mine is in Zebrano and is rocking my T1's.

I like this stand, especially with wooden headphones. Plus, Jaben tends to give them free here in Singapore with other purchases :)

Two images of Sieveking with RS1. Not my best shots but hope their useful.

how high is the sieveking headphones stand?

The zebrawood is cool but there are 4 issues for me:

  1. Footprint- I am finding that stands are taking up too much of my desktop and I dream of a "wire solution" from the ceiling (just bought some Sennheiser clamping holders to try).
  2. Lack of Cable Solution- The cable is the greatest impediment to achieving cleanliness, IMO!
  3. Price- I believe most will work their way through cheaper options unless the stand is "close enough" to warrant the stretch...
  4. Wood Only?- Many will have environments not amenable to wood (even the nice zebrawood).

 

Appreciate the inquiry, it offers us a chance to voice critical factors in our buying decisions.

 

Another thing, I have plenty of ~$13 Rubbermaid hose hooks and they fall over too easily...
