If ever there was a solution to a first-world problem, this is it. Behold, the Omega Headphone Stand, a perfect answer to a question that was never asked.
The stands are exactly what they claim to be, nothing more: a place to keep your over-the-head headphones. If you have been suffering the awful chaos of a pair of expensive cans sitting messily on a table, or even worse, sprawled across a shelf, offending the eyes of every sensitive soul who visits your luxury, minimalist home, then you can stop your painful worrying. Now you can perch those high-end headphones onto a curved plywood stand.
The swooping veneer sculptures come in a variety of forest-killing hardwoods – cherry, maple, zebrano or walnut – and mimic the shape of a human head, which makes a lot of sense as the ‘phones are designed to cosset the noggins of audiophiles the (first) world over.
The price? A mere $180, meaning you’ll have to spend at least that on a pair of headphones or risk your superficial friends chuckling at you. Oh,and you’ll have to do something about the cords, too. In the photo, they’ve just been cleverly hidden from the camera’s view. In your home, they’ll make a mess that will drive you crazy. Crazy enough to spend another $180 on an ivory cable-tidy, no doubt.
