The Sieveking Sound Headphone Stand Omega is now available. Ever since the Omega was presented at the Munich High End 2009 response has been enthusiastic and now we have got the four real wood veneers of maple, cherry, walnut and the exotic looking zebrano ready. The Omega is completely Made in Germany and constructed from a single piece and then coated with a lacquer that is certified for use with children’s toys. It is delivered within a pouch of undyed flannel. This pouch is suitable as light and dust protection for the Omega and the headphones resting on it.
The Omega’s design has been granted a design trademark by the European Union already. The stand is ideal for any serious listener who does not want to see his headphones discarded in some corner but is proud to show his love for music.
The flat surfaces of the Omega mean even pressure to the earpads and thus will prolong your listening pleasure as they keep their shape much longer. The Omega is large enough to support very large headphones like a Sennheiser HD 800 or the round models by Stax as well.
Please be aware that wood is a living material that will darken when exposed to sunlight. The Omega will also react to changes in humidity and temperature and you will find that the unit may be very slightly rocky when you receive it. You can straighten the Omega manually to rectify this (see PDF Service for Omega Headphone Stand below).
