The Best Headphone Stands to Really Show Off Your Headphones

A headphone stand is a great way to show off your headphones as well as declutter your desk.

A headphone stand can be a pretty inexpensive desktop accessory that can do wonders for the look and feel of your desk and workspace. Most importantly, it can help get your headphones off the desk when you're not using them, which declutters your space and helps you stay organized and productive.

When deciding which headphone stand is right for you, there are a few things to consider. The first thing is figuring out how much you want to spend. The main thing that separates an inexpensive headphone from an expensive one is the materials used — metal is more expensive than plastic, after all. Then you want to make sure you like the design of the stand and that it'll fit and compliment your current headphones.

The good news is that if you're in the market for a headphone stand, you've got options — we've rounded up our favorites below.

What to Look For

Materials: The typical headphone stands are usually made of plastic, metal and wood. They each have their pros and cons, but none of them are going to necessarily do a bad job, it is more about what is the best fit for you. For example, while a plastic stand might function perfectly fine, a metal option might provide the extra durability and capacity that you are looking for. Or maybe this is your opportunity to elevate your desk setup by giving your headphones the wooden throne they deserve.

Design: Whether the main purpose of your desk is for gaming or more professional endeavors, we all want to feel good about the space we are spending our time in. This new accessory could lend itself to elevating the look, feel and functionality of your work surface. Some things to keep in mind are colors/finishes, wire management options and whether or not the stand provides any extras, such as storage trays and charging ports. Matching the look of your current headphones as well as your desk’s aesthetic can also leapfrog over extra features when push comes to shove in your shopping cart.

Capacity: This may feel like a no-brainer, but when thinking about your precious desk space, you might want to consider what will give you plenty of room for comfort and efficiency. If you have two sets of headphones that both need charging, a stand with a couple of charging ports might be the most convenient option for you. Or maybe you just have a single small set of headphones that only require a small hook stand, which would allow even more free space in your work area.
