Does it leave marks of headphones padding? It is just two metal stripes that support the headband? I would prefer not to damage my headphones... ???
Speaking from experience that is an issue 100%, i destroyed the padding of my old Sennheiser HD 380 pro with a stupid stand with only 2 plastic supports, these supports look even thinner.
If you have padding it's going to butcher it
I have this from the previous drop and it does destroy any headphone that has padding. I remedied this by wrapping the two supports with a lot fabric to prevent it from digging in.
What are you doing when using this stand? Scraping head crud off the band by rubbing them vigorously back and forth on the stand? I've had mine for awhile and have noticed zero wear and tear on the band. Unless you're adding weight or have headphones made in 1950 of chrome and cast iron I can't imagine how these would "damage" the headband.
I'm wondering if people who have this problem have some sort of abnormally high pH content in their hair or use hair care products that damage the material on the headband?
They specifically said the padding, not the headband- it's absolutely reasonable for thin, metal strips to dig into padded headbands. Thin strips of ANYTHING hard, really. Hence, a stand like this really is not for padded headphones, because it'll destroy that padding.
Yes, non-padded headbands would require a lot more abuse to destroy- but that's not what they're talking about.
If you have dt-880 then you would know.
Simply placing it gently on it and the next day you would already regret you did.
They need to make it clear which types of headphones can be used with this product without causing any harm.(like akg 7xx which use bands not pads)
Headphones need to have padding.
Considering this is for desktop headphones, the headphones you can wear for hours would have paddings and they need to be soft as it would sit on your head.
And this stand has blades.
I could probably place my fostex t-0x but not my beyers or senns.
Certainly not for pads.
