Riding the crest on a flood of Brainwavz reviews, today I’m demoing the new Brainwavz Truss. This dual headphone hanger retails for a solid $17.95. And while cheaper headphone stands might abound, nothing comes close to this level of quality.
Brainwavz Truss Headphone Hanger Review
The Truss utilizes the same die-cast aluminum build you’ll find on other Brainwavz headphone hangers (like the Krudul Duo, for example). The resulting look is polished and professional, with a durable feel. And despite this unflagging build, the Brainwavz remains lightweight.
Affixing this unit to the underside of a table, desk, or shelf is simple. Just remove the cover of the 3M VHB adhesive strip and stick it where thou wilt. On the arms of the Truss, two flat, wide metal pads actually hold the headbands of your headphones. These metal pads are removable with a hex key or allen wrench, but I’m at a loss to figure out why anyone would actually need to remove them.
That’s because the Truss actually leaves little room for improvement; the flat, wide metal pads minimize the amount of pressure actually applied to a headband – unlike thinner, cheaper headphone hangers.
So whether you have a headphone with a notoriously thin headband (like the Audio Technica MSR7), or a headphone with a notoriously wide headband (like and Audeze LCD-X), the Truss works perfectly.
If you’re a headphone freak like this guy, forget buying one of these headphone hangers. Get six! The Brainwavz Truss securely holds my two most-used headphones: the Grado RS1e and the Beyerdynamic DT 1770. But other headphones in my collection could stand to be displayed under my 5 ft work desk – my red M50x, and my swanky Sonorous VI. And if December plays out well, I’ll need some room for a TH900 Mk2 in that swanky sapphire blue.
But what if you don’t need a twelve step program to kick your addiction to expensive headphones? If you use at least two headphones on a near-daily basis, there’s no reason not to show them off and keep your desk clutter-free at the same time.
Sure, folks with one headphone might only scoff at this dual headphone hanger. But we’ll see who’s scoffing after the new Grado Heritage models arrive. Or the next Limited Edition M50x.
For a $17.95 retail price, I have to recommend the Brainwavz Truss. With its sophisticated but rugged build, this no-nonsense dual headphone hanger does the job with a certain flair. And for casual headphone fans and audiophiles alike, few alternatives do the job with this much class.
