Headphones Battlestations


#10

I did change out the keycaps on my keyboard to a white/black/grey/red keys instead of all black. Problem with Corsair keyboards is they got creative and went non-standard on the bottom row, so it’s not as easy to find keys that fit that row.


#11

Yea, I have 3 mechkeys at home, and 2 at work (granted I have two office locations so that makes sense) and gave two others to my friend to use at work. I want to try the CTRL but I want Cherry MX Silent or Matias Quiet Pro switches.


#12

My Razer blackwidow v2 has the white corsair keycaps, I used that for a long time and it can be seen in some of my past photos…I tend to swap around keyboards every couple months…but recently went on a stupid mech keyboard buying spree…thanks Massdrop and Konostore… insert squealing Japanese school girl here I have issues… sigh time for bed


#13

Well if you want mine I’ll cut you a deal when my other ones come in…I don’t think I need 3 of the same type keyboard lol. I have the K-type from the original drop(with cherry stabs), and I’m waiting on the Hexgears K-type remake that they collab w/Input club. I have the Hexgears X-1 slim mech keyboard at work…it is good for a portable keyboard but I kind of want to bring one of my better keyboards into work instead…but the bluetooth factor makes it nice…

I know there’s a whole mechkey mystique which I only discovered browsing Massdrop. I came from the IBM Selectric II typewriter or old WICO keyboards. Even the old Apple extended keyboard II was OK before they went to the horrible newer ones after 1995. Now I have 8 Logitech wired illuminated keyboards in about 3 locations. I found something that works well and night, that has a decent feel, and I stuck with it. The current model is the K740. https://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/illuminated-keyboard-k740?crid=27

Please guys, all this headphone porn just stirs me up. :grin:. Nice setup. I would love a little room to be able to call my own. But alas, our house is too small. Still if I sent my son to live with relatives I could have his room… mmmm now there’s a thought.


#16

Very nice @antdroid. Nice and neat too.


#17

Maybebin a year or two my office will be tidy enough to post a picture of it … :joy:


#18

I will tidy mine up this weekend, I was messing around with multiple DACs and amps last night and had them all stacked up on each other…usually it is mildly more de-cluttered

Work audio battlestation, currently using the Monolith THX 788 all in one, with the Elegia being daily driver.

Ha, it’s the simple things… You’ve changed my life forever! I never realized double headphone rack was a thing, I need one delivered overnight! No, right now!!


#21

I didnt either! I just got it literally yesterday right before that photo. I was debating between the Woo Audio one and the Silverstone one, and I ended up getting the Silverstone one.

It is so massively heavy, you can do some serious damage to a burglar. Like death blows. The one bad thing and I noticed this in the Amazon review comments is that the screws that hold the hangar portion to the post may be a tad short and not screw in and it seems like mixed between working and not working. Mine did not fit. I luckily have a toolbox full of different screws, washers, etc and I found something that worked great.

The two other single headphone stands are Luxe Headphone stands (from Amazon). They also have a heavy base, but nowhere near the Silverstone, and have a flat top which was leaving a crease in my Focals, which prompted me to look for one of the double stands mentioned above since they have a round top. No more creases – the creases eventually go away since it’s memory foam, but it was bugging me since I dont know if there would be longer term effects.

These are the two I have, both work great, but aren’t as cool looking as the one @antdroid has lol

Someone on head-fi posted this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01C37TOXQ/ref=crt_ewc_title_huc_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ACRAAI6L7KRRA

Looks like a nice alternative to the $85 Woo Audio Stand. It’s 3X lighter and the hangar portion is only 1.5 inch wide vs 3.5 inch wide and it does not adjust in height, but seems to do the job for $15.


#24

Ok as promised a better picture of my Battlestation, I have more headphones behind the ones in the cubes, and a couple of DACs and amps in drawers/shelves as seen with the Jot under the HD800:

You all motivated me to get one of those colorful keyboards. I picked up a Corsair K70 RGB on Saturday. I have an Apple iMac, so I’m using beta software/firmware while Corsair perfects the final software. Had to update the keyboard firmware via my PC laptop, and got it going on the iMac this afternoon. These forums can get expensive. At the moment, I’m testing out my new Audeze LCD-Xs. I’m thinking the brandy makes them sound better…Definitely some sweet headphones…

Booze, Music, bright lights, and clicky feedback…BLISS :wink:

Lovely room. Looks like a great getaway space. :grin:


#29

Thanks! We just added that room last year. It looks out over or back yard and a greenbelt. It’s a nice place to work and play with my audio toys.
