THE DIY HEADPHONE STAND THREAD

    Wow, that looks really nice for so cheap!

    BTW, what headband pad is that on your ATs? Did you make that yourself, or is that aftermarket?

    Hey, thanks!

    And it was easy to "build", also.

    Regarding the headband, it's the original AT's withouth the pleather coating. That thin cheap pleather started to decay and to peel off, revealing this greyish soft cloth beneath. Just had to pick a used toothbrush and scub the rest of the pleather off the headband. I thing it looks very nice this way.

    Why the heck wouldn't they just sell it that way? Looks much nicer than the factory headband.

    From my experience, there seems to be 2 types of pleather - thicker type that is basically 1 thick piece (like what they make ear pads from), and the PAPER thin type that I think might be sprayed onto another surface (fabroc, etc). The AT looks like the latter. The Philips SHL3300 also has that PAPER thin version too. It just flakes off with the slightest abrasion, but unfortunately it doesn't have the fabric underneath like the AT. I ended up making a lambskin cover for mine:

    Try the "Upload a File" option lower right corner near the reply window.

    Upload a file. Very useful. Thanks

    I was using IMDb.com but upload file is great

    You can also create a gallery with the gallery link in the tabs above. I'm not sure what can be done with a gallery

    Yeah, at the time that wasn't an option, but it's slowly been improving. BTW I bough the stand from Allanmarcus!

    Great work! That looks quite good for the stated cost of the Ikea parts for the build. Personally I like to mill,lathe, and my favorite... smoothen my own metals.... You know just make it smooth? Nah dude bad idea. Besides the point, Im not a shrimp...just ask Dr. Goodhead. From you know the bond flix.

    Anybody doing any headphone trees? I have four pairs now and am planning on getting two more pairs. I am currently trying to sell some but would like to have a tree type structure that would rise from the floor (preferably between my lazy boy and the couch) and hold/display four to six pairs. Any ideas? If fairly simple, I could try to build myself. I would definitely pay for a beautiful design like many of the pieces in this thread.

    Made it out of an old Neutrik goose neck. The goose neck is very stiff and can hold up to four headphones without a problem. The AGK mic pictured was attached but its not that good. Works though.
