...you spent $180 dollars on a piece of bent wood? I thought I was crazy for buying all those moon rocks!

That's a nice-looking stand.

I got a small discount for buying it in Walnut. Still not cheap, but I think it's worth it.

Well, whatever makes you happy! I say when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!

It's a very nice stand, I recently sold mine.

 

I was looking for one of these rare, custom OEM Sennheiser HE-90 stands but I couldn't find one for $500 and that's commensurate with the value of the cans they are designed to support.  It's all a matter of perspective.

Cut down dramatically on the number of cans I owned to fund some source upgrades, so there was no need for that many HP-stand.

I remember seeing one for $500 about a year ago, what did you pay? Also a great thread, will have to keep in tune with this thread.

I never find one.  Still looking.  Wiktor didn't want to part with any of his.  Greedy bastard...:-)  Just kidding.

Thank you for being judgmental and telling others how to spend their money.  Your constructive input has vastly improved the quality of this thread.

LOL, I was waiting for something like that.  I realize some may perceive it to be frivolous spending, but to tell you a the truth, I have spent $12K on this particular HE90, because it was NOS.  No other DYI or commercially available headphone stand, except the Sennheiser original shown on the photo provides the perfect support and aesthetic appeal of this iconic beauty.  So, yes, I would be willing to spend that kind of money for a mint, original stand like that.  Currently I have it rested on a Woo HP Stand, which has a better arc support roughly the same curvature as the leather headband of the HE90s.  I also cover it with the STAX HPS dust-hood.  Taking it out and putting it back in its box is just too much of a strain on the wire and is really unnecessary as long as it's protected from dust and stored in a safe place.
