Got my HD-555s yesterday.........still loving them. I'm letting them "burn in" right now on some shoutcast streaming classical music.

My big question is........how do I store these when I'm not using them? Is there a stand I can get or should I just keep them in the original box? Or another case perhaps?

Ideas welcome!

Hey, how's it going? I am looking for a stand as well.
No luck yet, I'll probably just get one of those glass heads and put some cool lights in it or something.

Check out this thread for a lenghty discussion from people looking for headphone stands:

Cheers!

That glass head was on sale at Pier 1 for about $15 shipped. It isn't anymore, but they may still have it.

FYI: Spoke with Senn USA office today and asked if I could bUy the headphone stand that comes with the HD595. They said it was not being sold seperately at this time, but might be available in a few months.

Banana hangers work nicely, but sometimes the clearance is inadequate.

Also, audiocubes sells the Stax headphone stand by itself.

I've been considering semi-rigid zipped padded boxes -- Outdoor Research Padded Cells. Variety of sizes, etc here:

I've used them before for backpacking gear and they're a good product. Not nearly as flashy as glass heads, though...

My Hi-Fi rack has an isolation platform on the top shelf. Just below it I have a hook I bought in IKEA that snugly fits the gap in the centre of the foam around the headband on my Sennheiser HD-650s. It works well and lets me hang them without them touching my very warm Sugden Masterclass amp right next to it.

Proved that despite its huge size the CD3000 can be shoved down one's throat.

The banana hanger has been the more popular around for a long time, you could get varios types. I got mine in TJMaxx and is very nice, green wood and chrome, I removed the hook, and replace it for a right angle chrome bolt and period, later on I covered the hook with a foam roller and got a nice hanger for less than 10.00...
