I just want to say it is refreshing to see someone willing to say "hey I misunderstood, I'm sorry." And then the other person simply except and move on. We need more of this on forums and in the world in general. Well done gentlemen.

@Ciggavelli I’m curious why you think it’s strange we only sell the stand in the US?
Because the stand comes from Europe. Why not sell it there too? It’s a really good stand, so I think people outside of the US would be interested in it too. I dunno, I was just curious myself.

Edit: I just saw your edit to the original post. It wasn’t there before. So, yeah. Disregard my comment

Understood. The post was sort of a work in progress...
I think we all need a bit more patience.

I've had the Abyss AB1266 Stand by Headphone Auditions Amsterdam & ROOMS Design for a month now. Time for a quick review.

Pros:
  • Very well built with good weight
  • Looks nice

Cons:
  • It's not high enough, so the cables (SC in my case) are bent too much, always in the same direction. Not sure how this affects the cables in the long run.
  • The top is only accepting the AB-1266 in a fully straight position. Since my normal listening position is slightly v-shaped every time I put it on the stand I have to straighten the middle, which may harm the top screw of the AB-1266 in the long run.
  • Quite expensive (at least here in Europe)
So I'm still looking for a better stand.

EDIT: Turns out the small arms at the top can be turned, which resolves the straightening issue. Great! Now I only need to insert an additional element to increase the height of the stand and it will be perfect.

Someone posted a pic a while back, showing that you can angle out the small "arms" where the frame rests to accommodate an angled position when placed on the stand.

Turns out I don't have the necessary tool to loose the screw in those small arms. I would appreciate if someone could post the code name of that specific screwdriver so I can order it.

EDIT: I could easily turn the small arms. Now I need a proper screwdriver to tighten them.

I don't have an issue with the height at all, loads of space. SC cable must be pretty solid/stiff.

For me it looks like it's bending too much:

Turn the headphones the other way around.
Yes, good suggestion. That will help and I think you'll be good. It does not look too bad to me.

I purchased these off Amazon after seeing someone else post them last year. Sold individually. Purchased two. Rubber cushion where the frame sits.
