A banana stand makes for a nice headphone stand.

Yup that too. I didn't even know those existed until I started researching headphones.

I've looked into banana stands. I have a ugly white plastic one and it does its job as well as any fancy stand. The metal banana stands are very nice looking but I have not found them in any stores I have looked. With the metal banana stands you have to be careful with the hook that you hang the headphones on because they will make a permanent indentation or scratches on the headphone. It is best to modify the hook on those to alleviate any wear on the headband and to make the hook more stable for headphones rather than bananas.

A nice wood stand is what I want now.

I just saw the link and thought some of you guys might like it.... now I'm thinking ...

for Sound and a nice touch to the media room (looks wise!) running an extension cable from the rack/AVR and put a jack in the end table with a headphone stand and do some research on headphones!

(haven't had a set of full headphones on since I use to play my dad's drums along with Cream on a reel to reel!. Crossroads, Born under a Bad Sign, and others...)
