I like this. Has a somewhat 20's vibe and, sure, it's pricy, but I'd rather pay this for something made in the States than for some Made-In-China crap off Amazon. Being able to flat pack it is cool too for moving and whatnot.
I love all of the negative comments regarding this product, mostly concerning disbelief of the simplicity of the design and materials (“I could make it myself!”) or the cost (“$90 for plywood?”). It is like looking at a Rothko painting and saying, “Heck – I could do that!” Yes, but did you? Originally, I mean. Now, I am not necessarily defending this product – I have no need for this particular stand and do not, at the moment, have the funds to justify the expense. Even if I did, I do not think I would buy it as it really is not my style. However, I do think it is a clever idea. Here is a thought: Design your own headphone stand (it can’t be this one because, like the Rothko, it has already been done). Purchase the tools to manufacture it in quantity. Purchase the materials to manufacture it in quantity. Patent it. Market it. Add up your time, equipment and materials (i.e., $) to design, manufacture, register and market your product. Are you willing to pay yourself minimum wage? If so, after only 17.5 hours (that is slightly less than two day’s work) you will be at the original asking price of the Bendy Head. How much will your headphone cost and how many do you need to sell to cover the initial costs? This is a very simplistic scenario and does not take into concern factors like overhead (controllable and non-controllable) profit, etc. Also, once the first one is created, the second is easier and so on – assuming you sell any in the first place. I guess this is long winded way of saying that those who cannot, critique…
funambulistic
I'll put it simply:
If you release products in the public sphere, expect criticism whether your product is good or bad.
funambulistic
Your story only goes to show that neither the makers nor the buyers of this thing are thinking people.
$90 for plywood?
bought a dual headphone stand on amazon for 20 €...works prefectly fine and is hidden away to have a clean desk...even if i had all the money in the world i wouldn`t buy this overpriced piece of wood..i would go to a local shop that works with wood and tell them exactly what i want...still gonna be cheaper and the money stays in my community... it's almost like somebody in the comments keeps defending this shit...like there's smthg to gain for them...just lol...too funny - can't really be taken serious!
Quite expensive for what you get, i mean i'm ok with expending 100$ on a stand if i like it and it suits the style of my setup, this looks cool and all, but watching some comments i saw that materials are not anywhere near to the asking price, i mean i got the Silverstone eba01 for 50$ and that's one sturdy, elegant well made stand, this looks like a college project for and industrial designer and certainly not worth 100$
I find it quite entertaining that instead of simply not participating in this drop, everyone has decided to bitch and moan because hey, this is the internet, what else are you supposed to be doing? Clearly no one has anything better to do.

Okay, could you fail any harder. First you keep arguing that you aren't questioning everyone else's statements that to are calling out mine and just flip-flop between the two which is it? Second, you're an idiot for trying to take that comment literally, it's a figure of speech that guy is saying that he doesn't feel that is worth more than $10 and a few hours of his time. You are also being asinine by outright dismissing like it's something impossible, do you have a crystal that lets you peer into someone's background informing you that they aren't a woodworker by trade and happened to have garage full off tools, the skills to make something similar, and is simply a matter $10s worth of materials. Good riddance.

"Last time I checked this was supposed to be for enthusiasts with a like minded community not someplace we're presented insulting drops" I don't appreciate being called "asinine" sniff sniff. Thanks for proving my point.
If I'm spending $70+ on a headphone stand it's going to be these http://www.wooaudio.com/products/wahps2.html

I have had one since they first came out in the dual stands. Its amazing and 100% worth it.
Ridiculous price. You guys forget you're selling the STAND for headphones, not headphones. This greedy pricing now has turned me away from your brand forever. I added BendyHead to my blacklist. (Yes I have a text file of every company I will avoid or actively tell people never to use, you're on it now.)

I know, It's nice to see some companies make a good honest product. I hate it when sellers jack up the price for dollar store crap just because they add some RGB lighting or write gamer on it. I hate those types. You can tell they are motivated by greed.

That pretty hostile for someone literally just trying to sell their product, don't you think? I get it, you don't think its worth the asking price, but this a pretty drastic solution.
Regardless of price, these stands looks really clean! I originally thought it was solid wood until I read the pricing complaints and had a second look. Nothing against these specifically, but it is a very hard sell with what you get.
On the subject of spending money though, whats wrong with spending $100 on a headphone stand? I would gladly spend that if I feel its worth it. I understand you might pass if you all are still rocking ATH-M50s but seriously, there are many nice high end cans that would look awesome on display with a nice stand.
An incorrect shipping date was listed earlier this morning, which has since been updated. Our apologies!
I can make a better stand than this in my garage for about 5 bucks.
Nevertheless, because of my generosity, I am willing to sell the stand I made (shown below) for only $1264.32.
Note! The Sony headphones, for which I paid $49.99, are NOT included!

Beautiful! Simple and creative...

Thanks, I made this from scratch, but it's actually a "borrowed" design idea. You can find this kind of design online for about $15 (not in mahogany though!).
I'm sorry, but unless you own many headphones over $1000 and make $150,000+ a year, I don't give you permission to spend $90 on a headphone stand.

Yes?

Nothing, just felt funny to always see you around the comment. Catch me later I'll grab you a coke.
Will I get sued if I make these and sell them for a quarter of the price? Cause I'm pretty tempted.
qewrq
I'll be your first customer :) And no, I doubt you will. Change up a few minor details and there you go
You can get this for $45 on Etsy - MitsuhoDesign with custom engravings.
Yep... I was just thinking I have some nice veneered plywood and know how to cut a curf if people are actually paying for this bullshit. What a joke. $90 for $5-10 of plywood and an hour of work, it even plat packs for shipping. Complete scam.
Anyone can make this with less than $10 of materials and a scrollsaw, hacksaw, laser cutter, etc. I could borrow the laser cutter at my university and be done with it. You're paying $95 for the licensing fee of the "living hinge" patent that they use.
Headroom was selling these for $79 at the last meet I went to. Break out the torches and pitchforks....boooo.
$99.99 yeah I don't know
this is my face right now

In what world does someone spend $100 for a headphone stand?

Lol I think you're the triggered one here. You just didn't realize it 😂
keep going, i'm entertained
It's neat, but it just mechanically cut wood, nothing special, definitely not worth 100$.
Looks dope, but I don't need it.
It looked interesting until I glanced at the price. It's about 3 time more expensive than what I'm willing to pay.
I wonder how many people on here leaving (the cliche) "this is overpriced garbage" comments even realize that this headphone stand is designed so that the wood physically bends to the angle that you want it to be to accommodate multiple sizes/styles of headphones. I'm guessing not many.

It is still made of plywood. I would take the beautifully and well-made "I&S Millworks Headphone Stands" over this every time.
rhenom
and you must not understand how plywood with cuts like that naturally bends/conforms aka cardboard packaging has that same shit "natural" bend except just firmer. I'm sure a man of your stature has come across and has the imagination to "see" how it works
but yea.....i guess not many
I'd rather a buy a silverstone eba01
Not sure how they get to these prices... Way too much for what it is...
Is there a pair of $98 headphones missing from this drop ?
I think having a cool looking stand for your headphones is OK, and the design of this one is OK. The major problem with this drop to me is the price point, you can get a very similar stand on Amazon for less than $30. Just search for "Wood Headphone Stand".
MD100
Yes, searching Amazon for "wood headphone stand" does yield results. No, none of those results are anything like this headphone stand.
If these get a patent, it will be interesting because they are using a bunch of Creative Commons and GPLv2 Designs as part of this "work". IIRC There is something similar on Thingiverse distributed under CC.
Any patent attorney wouldn't touch this with a 10-foot pole. Not to mention these kinds of thing design patents have been nearly impossible to get-through the system. Trust me I have software and mechanical "thing" patents, there is literally no way that this makes it through (unless this person wants to throw 50k-70k into lawyers and fees). For reference, most patents that are "good" only take about ~15k.
Massdrop, get this off of here. That will be pending a patent for neigh forever. Not to mention that this would take less than an hour to do the CAD work for and yeah I have a 50W laser cutter. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They used to until patent reform hit a few years ago. You really have to have something completely unique or so oddly specific to on implementation that there isn't a reason to patent it unless you have fear of your customers making it themselves. This item is neither of those things.
Some Examples : http://www.instructables.com/id/Curved-laser-bent-wood/ or all of these here: https://www.pinterest.com/jaredbruton/flexible-thick-materials/?lp=true

It says featuring a patented design, which I assume is the "living hinge." They probably paid them a licensing fee for it, possibly why it costs so much. Patent page: https://www.google.com/patents/US7685676
I agree that it's over priced, you can make this for less than $10 of materials and a scrollsaw, hacksaw, laser cutter, etc.
Ok, Massdrop. You've jumped the shark with this one...
Adereth
well, it is shark week.
$100 for cheap plywood...and I even have to make it myself?? No thanks - look on Etsy for solid oak ones for under $70, for example...
