    I'm sorry but that first image looks a lot like something that is really wrong… ;)

    I don't consider it "ingenious", of any sort, considering the same exact concept has been around since man started hanging stuff up. However, you could have made it more professional and still inexpensive, ala a wooden block -> dowel sort of idea. I don't think I'd want my sennheisers falling off!

    Yeah, I wouldn't use this with a pair of Psyko 5.1's!!! I would use wood.

    I did nearly the same thing with the COVER from a CD spindle.

    So your whole brilliant invention consists of taping something to the wall to hang headphones off of? I can't wait until computers come with an IQ test before you can get online....

    living in chicago = no space at all
    My LARGE monitoring headphones take up about 1/4 of my entire available desk space, and I have an iMac (small footprint)...so I find this idea terrific!

    For those of us that have to move UP the walls just to exist, ideas like this are FAB! Thanks Sh0rtbus56 for sharing! :)

    Excellent idea! The best ideas give the most effective result with the simplest method. I've got three now, one for the computer, one for the hi-fi and one for the headphones on my silent brass trombone mute. Thanks.

    Brilliant!! I save all my cd spindles. I usually reuse them for burnt cd's. The short stacks make great cd "wallets". I was actually planning on posting an Instructable for numerous uses of these spindles. They would also make great project boxes. What about coiling up some cables and throwing the lid on it as well? I'm sure it could take the weight, and it would keep them up and out of the way too:) These Instructables are some of the best.....they offer a new perspective on everyday items and relative junk.
