My stand came beautifully carved, looks great on the desk with or without headphones on it. I’m judging it at 5 stars for what it is, a wood sculpture that also functions as the best looking headphone stand out there.
There’s a little bit of form over function, because it is light, doesn’t have a big heavy base or rubberized feet so it’s not the most stable on the desk, but that’s not a fault it’s just the nature of what you get if you want what this stand is - a wood sculpture that’s as much art as headphone stand. Adding metal, rubber or silicone to this thing would have taken away from what it is. It’s still steady, no wobble, well balanced and won’t tip over with headphones on it, but it is light, will move when you take your headphones on and off, and will slide around the desk if you touch it. There are 20-30 dollar stands on Amazon you can buy if you want something with a big heavy base and rubberized feet. That’s not what you buy this stand for.
I’m thinking about buying a second for my other pair of headphones.
