  1. Oh no, the competition has already started?
    Jaben: Just email me sketches… I’ll post them
    I believe you can also post a link where you store your photos… some image shack thing. If you know them write a short writeup so everyone here knows how. Ooops, I’ve still yet to post your RSS instructions.

  2. What are the rules and guidelines????

    Jaben: Hey, help me out here… OK, we will put aside 3x Mylarone X3, white for prizes. The contest will be carried out over the blog. Off the cuff, I want to suggest a Tagline to be used with Mylarones. How about the rest of you suggesting other possibilities.

  3. What happened to the other prizes? haha πŸ™‚

  4. So is the X3 prizes for the headphone stand or the tagline?
    Sorry got a little confussed lol!!
    Hmmmmm tagline, i cant think…

    Jaben: Tagline… my apologies if I have confused you guys…

  5. https://jaben.wordpress.com/2007/06/11/headphone-stand-design-prizes/
    but those are REALLY extremely nice. I can understand the x3’s being a more reasonable prize for you. (unless someone did a really fantastic stand).

    Jaben: No, no… The X3 are prizes for the tagline contest… the other prizes stay.

  6. owe oh ohhhh okay. So… like a slogan?

  7. You just love to do competitions dont you!!!

    Jaben: You bet… πŸ™‚

  8. now i feel ridiculous… 😦 haha

  9. yAH, it’s nice having something to be hopeful for haha πŸ™‚

  10. Okay… how about “Just do it”? lol jk…

    Jaben: Nah, that’s Nike…

  11. they melt in your mouth not in your hand?? heh okay okay jk jk

    here’s a little jump start…


  12. how do you post images here?

  13. I really like that Stevie!

  14. πŸ™‚ thanks mat

  15. Oh, i just thought of another one I should add…

    “The way sound should sound” Should would be in italics.

    I really like that one a lot actually.

  16. Does the stand design have to be practical or can it be anything, including stuff that would be a manufacturing process nightmare….(although be it a cool idea)?

    Jaben: Does not matter, it is a work of art, we’ll find a way to translate it…

  17. I have got my joiner friend to try and knock my stand up in wood!

    I hope he can i want it lol!!!

  18. that was quick!

    Jaben: Hey, I could not resist it… πŸ™‚

  19. πŸ™‚ We have finally got a compo going!

  20. Uncle Wilson, you left out my first entry.

    Jaben: Oops… send it again… use a new thread.

  21. Here it is: http://img170.imageshack.us/img170/6500/canconceptsq0.jpg

  22. looks like alot of good ideas pouring in.. hmm i can smell a barbeque coming soon.. very soon?..

    Jaben: I want my “Mui…”

  23. aaahh ~~.. ur learning the art of “pushing” already. i see..

    Jaben: Hey!… you taught me… πŸ™‚

  24. Ok I’ll have a go at this. Here’s some ideas I whipped up tonight:

    The advantages of using 3 dimensions πŸ˜€

  25. My confidence has dropped πŸ™‚

    Jaben: Why?

  26. I don’t know if you saw my posts on the other headset stand thread but I had a lot of ideas and I still have many more.

    Personally, I’d really like to see one that has a base with a plastic cover that contains a light bulb underneath. This would give a diffused upward glow that would cast a beautiful light upon your fancy cans hanging from above. The light wouldn’t be really bright but I can imagine it working in as a beautiful decoration in dim lighting circumstances.

    Also, like I said before, I think it’s very important to find a way to hide the wiring. It needs to be done in a way that’s not a hassle though. You should just be able to shove it into a concealing spot real quick and not have to worry about any tangles.

    And just for fun…

    yah, i thought a little lion statue holding them from his mouth would be fun πŸ™‚ heh

  27. Some nice designs thats why!

    i like Darrens headphone cable design stand a lot.

  28. my joke entry!

  29. well that worked lol!!

    heres the link insted!

  30. Introducing CANpod! The ever so popular retro style we all love so much!

  31. Now I’d most definitely sport that!

  32. Stevie T: Same idea I had about the diffused light source from below.. Would make the headphone stand so much more special, sort of like an artwork stand rather than just a hook.

    Mat: Thanks, let’s embrace wire tangles!

  33. Okay here’s a very simple one. Doesn’t look the greatest in this graphic i put together but I tried my best and I think it should get the idea across. Basically I really like the idea of using lighting to showcase your more prized set of cans.

    So that’s the most simplistic of my lamp ideas ^^^


    Also, you can’t deny my sticky hooks are the most convenient thing in the world for sticking up your headphones anywhere you want πŸ™‚

    Now if only I had those in brass or silver…..

  34. stevie T ia your Canpod a chair lol??

  35. Yah its like one of those retro chairs from back in the day.. I thought a mini one that was designed to hole headphones would look freakin awesome!

  36. Yes, yes it would lol!

  37. anyone else planning on submitting designs?

  38. Has there been anymore entries wilson?

    This needs bumping again!

    Jaben: OK… mmm… You got mail…
