My DIY Audiophile Headphone Stand (for adults)

WARNING: This project requires a steady hand and clear thinking. Most importantly, it should not be attempted in one sitting. My advice is to start with a full bottle and work slowly towards your goal. Remember that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.

I've tried and tried but I can't find a stand to match up with my headphones. I think perhaps it's the headphones. Anyone have a suggestion for a set that would match up well with a 1.75L stand?

I use a real stand for my real headphones--I only use the bottle for Bluetooth headphones ;- )

I use ADX Fireside V01, it has no fancy colors or logos, and is just a plain black headset stand. The name might make one think otherwise though.
Love it!

Wear it if you like, so long as you don't wake up in a pool of it the next morning. Never as good coming up as it was going down--at least that's been my experience.

Zacapa 28, have a like damn it. You overstretching those poor 990s though
I need a quick review of the whisky. Asking for a friend :)

Tell your friend it's quite good; a step up from "Gibson's Finest 12-Year Old." Regrettably, I don't see either brand in the local stores I frequent. My most reliable sources have been the Duty Free stores along the trail to the Great White North--always worth the trip.

Ya I haven't seen this whiskey in my local stores. Will have to give it a shot if I see it on the shelves. Thanks and Cheers!
I'm doing it 100%

Eighty-proof is generally sufficient!
why you need steady hands and clear thinking for this? You only need a liver and a night to down a bottle of this.

"The horror...the horror"

If you are downing 12-year-old whisky in one night, I can only weep for you... and your liver. And you might want to ask @GunsOfBrixton if you can borrow his final set of phones, because I suspect they might all sound the same.
Same. Had been collecting boxes for years. Only recently threw them all away (like 60 single malt boxes and some assorted other ones). I remember this as being quite good despite most Glenlivets being a bit perfunctory for my tastes. The box however, was first class & made the cut, I gave it a job.

This is brilliant. How well do 6xx's work on the Three Fingers High bottle? The neck/cork seems like it could be a little too wide, but it just looks so nice.
Your answer will determine whether or not I'm making a trip to the liquor store this week!
mr.pink
Mr. Pink I see a shopping trip in your near future. Owing to the 6XX's propensity towards cranium-crushing clamping forces, the padded portion of the headband scarcely needs to contact the cork of the stand at all. Indeed, that clamping force is so pronounced, I warn, in the strongest possible terms, against using a bottle from any lesser brand!

I resent the implications of your comment; well-founded or otherwise!
RayF
I trust your taste. The pic tells me you are on the right track ;)

You have the Thinksounds already? I thought you were still considering them o_O

No, I have had them for almost a year already. The drop was for $150 when I bought them :(. They are one of my favorite sets, even though I strongly prefer over-ear to on-ear.
I like it!!!
