Default Headphone Storage or Display Ideas

How do you store or display your headphones? I have 3 sets of headphones and tend to leave them all over.Any ideas for a cheap way of displaying or storing them? Photos would be appreciated!

Either buy or build a headphone stand, there's loads of pictures on the net. If you have limited space and want to get them off the desk, ikea sells some nice wall hooks that work as headphone hangers. My old one was made from bamboo that I sourced locally for free but I don't have a picture. I guess Jack felt sorry for me when I told him about my stand and he gave me one of these, Woo headphone stand

Empties are the way to go. A much more elegant setup than mine (stuffed in a backpack).

Obviously I drank the beer and filled the bottles with water...

I have them super-glued together, and the weight of the water makes it much harder to tip over.

sideways at $69.00 for single and $79.00 for a double they sound expensive but trust me the quality, workmanship and precision of those Woo headphone stands is awesome! http://www.wooaudio.com/products/wahps2.html

Oh shit, I didn't notice you had a set of those. I just stumbled across them doing random web crawling and remembered this thread. Posted without thinking.

For my tastes they are too expensive since they are approaching the cost of my headphones. In a higher end setup I am sure they make sense. I usually hang my headphones on the lock of my sliding cabinet or on my desk lamp. Double duty ftw.
