According to specs on line for the new one, it is 9.4in. Just measured mine and it's 9.4in.
I suck with metric measurements. Can't write them. Standard Imperial ftw~
For updated version:
Max height (not where the headband would rest): 21 cm, approx. 8 1/2 inches.
Holder height (where the headband rests): 8 1/4 inches.
I had to add extra padding to my Denons so they wouldnt drag on the floor.
