Ever since the Omega was presented at the Munich High End 2009 response has been enthusiastic. 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 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").

Important Notice: ALL versions of the Omega being sold on Amazon.com are counterfeit! We have tried getting through to Amazon's legal department numerous times and they simply do not take action even though the design holds an international design patent.


BEWARE OF FAKE OMEGAS FROM CHINA! It is said that in China making a copy of a product is a form of compliment. While it may be true that only good products warrant copying it turns out that the people buying the copy are less inclined to compliment the product quality. We have received complaints regarding product quality from several customers who have purchased a "Sieveking Sound Omega" headphone stand in Hong Kong from companies like "HiEndKing". These customers bought in Hong Kong because they felt they would make a bargain that way and ended up getting a wobbly piece of junk with rough surfaces and the smell of chemical solvent. The units are so unstable the manufacturer has used felt stickers to keep them from rocking. Not something you would want to put your prized headphones on.


We take great care with this product and each unit is individually inspected before it ships anywhere and under no circumstances would we accept something which smelled like solvent. So if you think of making a bargain by buying from China you might want to consider this. If you want to save on a headphone stand check out the DIY section of Head-Fi. They have got a few very good ideas there.
UPDATE: The ebay-vendor audiophile_inc from Taiwan is selling some really lousy copies of the Omega. The units are so unstable that they are using feltpads to keep them from rocking. They also progressed to the next level and now copied the basic shape into acrylic which we would never do as this will look extremely ugly once body fat from the earpads is starting to assemble on the stand. It also got the problem that it keeps moisture trapped inside the earphones instead of absorbing it over time. STAY AWAY FROM THIS VENDOR!
