THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD

  1. WAAM
    Great idea? Imagine how "irritating" it is to wind those IEM cables around those tiny sticks and how it will make cables like "springs" when You start to use them. 
    Imho, not a good and thought-through practical idea[​IMG]

    Carful there. Those are pretty wide. You will be stretching your headband and putting pressure on the pads, which may lead to pad compression.

    Yep,  I was thinking the same thing.
     
    A liquor bottle makes a good headphone stand. [​IMG]

    Ive measured and checked, its still smaller than my head and thats why Im using it :D yes I have a big head =X

    The idea is to give the pads a rest while you're not using them. The speaker boxes might be smaller than your head, but they are still compressing the pads much more than necessary, yes?

    With grados they are almost necessary. Leaving them flat against a table can kill the driver suspension.
     
    EDIT: My bad, I mean headphone stands, do help headphone suspensions and other headphone related functioning.

    What is the "they" that is almost necessary?
     
     
    My personal philosophy is that they are bad. Oh, "they"? I mean pronouns :) 
     
    I've seen numerous grado pad ruined with omega stand. Grado, more than any other headphones, need to be suspended with the pads touching nothing, when not in use.

    Is it OK to leave headphones in the box they came in?

    Not if the box is full of spiders.

    Thats true, took them off and just layed them ontop of the small speakers now where they rest flat and nicely.

    What's the general way to go about making stands using upside down bottles?
    Like bottle type/size, mounting.
    I've got a picture in my head of using finished wood as a base, though I'd really like to make a "Omega" type headphone stand. (unless I can find one good for over 300 grams for a good price)

    Just wanted to post my stand I made from IKEA parts. I made four of these for around $15 each.
