When you own an expensive pair of headphones, odds are you want to protect them. If you spend hundreds of dollars on an a pair, you definitely don’t want to leave them neglected just lying on your desk where they can be easily damaged if you hit the cord or spill something. So what’s a good way to protect them? A headphone stand. Lately I’ve been using the new Aluminum headphone stand from Satechi and long story short, it’s awesome.
This metal headphone stand sits flat on your desktop With a weighted base this stand can hold even the heaviest of headphones without falling over. At just over 11″ in height, it can also hold up the headphones without letting them touch the base itself regardless of how far you have them extended.
I used the Satechi headphone stand to hold up my Audio-Technica ATH-M40x with the cables detached. However, if you can’t remove the cable from your headphones, there’s a cable wrap on the back of the stand to keep things tidy. This was useful when I put my Plantronics RIG 500E gaming headphones on the stand.
On it’s own, this product is already well worth picking up, but to make it even better, Satechi has included three USB 3.0 ports to the front of the base. Simply plug a USB 3.0 cable (one is included) into the back of the base and into your PC and you’ve got three additional, easy to reach ports. This is a great addition not only for easy access, but also for charging wireless headphones as well!
Satechi sells this headphone stand through their own website or on Amazon in silver, grey, or gold for $29.99. If you ask me, that’s a great deal considering everything you’re getting for the money. If you’re interested in picking up a pair, check out the link below!
