SOLD: Real vintage headphones upcycled as headphone hangers for your stuff! When I found these beauties, the electronics were waaaay past their prime. Now, they have new purpose and it has nothing to do with how they sound (or how they used to sound).
If you’ve ever taught music, played in a school band or read from sheet music, you know the name Hal Leonard! The publishing company, founded by brothers Hal and Leonard, began in the 1940s by arranging popular music for school bands. Today, Hal Leonard Corporation is well known as a world leader in the music print industry, producing products ranging from songbooks and instructional DVDs to software.
At some point in its history (I’m guessing the 1970s), Hal Leonard included headphones in its product line and even though the quality would be considered far below today’s standards, these cans make awesome hangers for today’s home/studio/band room. Boasting volume controls that still turn and a switch to toggle between mono and stereo, the cans being offered in this listing are great looking vintage and repurposed, they pay homage to another era and a major contributor to music education.
Use them near the front door to catch keys; in your dressing room for jewelry; or perhaps in your office as the perfect place to hang your 21st century headset. (These are not the type of hooks that would accommodate big heavy coats.)
Each Headphone Hook measures just under 8″ long from the very top to the bottom of the hook. Each has a metal keyhole hanger attached to the back and the original ear pad provides a nice buffer between the hanger and the wall. These are in very good vintage condition with minimal wear/use marks.
