A headphone stand can be a pretty inexpensive desktop accessory that can do wonders for the look and feel of your workspace. Most importantly, it can help declutter your workspace so that you can be a more organized and productive person.
When deciding which headphone stand is right for you, there are 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.
Master & Dynamic Headphone Stand
Master & Dynamic's headphone stand has been one of our favorites for years. It's simple yet elegant, and it's completely made of steel so it'll last for years. It's available in either black or silver, just like most of M&D's headphones.
Sieveking Sound Omega Headphone Stand
The Omega Headphone Stand is definitely a statement piece. It's large enough to fit most audiophile headphones, like the Sennheiser HD800 and Audeze LCD-X, and it can be purchased in a number of different wood finishes.
Bluelounge Posto Universal Headphone Stand
For less than $20, you can't really go wrong with the Bluelounge Posto. It's simple, durable and functional, and it look nice on your desk. It's available in either white or black finishes.
Monoprice Headphone Stand
The Monoprice Headphone Stand is essentially a way more affordable, non-wooden version of the above Omega Headphone Stand. It's made completely of aluminum with rubber feet to prevent it from moving or damaging your desk.
Razer Base Station V2 Chroma
Razer's headphone stand is designed for gamers using Razer's gaming headsets. It's a full-fledged USB hub complete with two USB-A ports. It also has a headphone jack and built-in DAC, as well as RGB lighting in its base that can sync with your Razer headset.
Satechi Aluminum USB Headphone Stand
Like most of Satechi's desktop accessories, this headphone stand is available in Space Gray to match nicely with Apple's computers. It also functions as a USB hub with three USB 3.0 ports (to transfer files or back-up data) and a headphone jack. Unfortunately, the USB-A ports do not support pass-through charging.
Neetto Dual Headphones Stand
If you have more than one pair of headphones that you want to elevate off your desk, this headphone stand is one of the nicest and most affordable options we've found. Additionally, the base functions as a kind of make-shift valet tray.
Elevation Lab The Anchor
While the top of your desk can get quite crowded, the underside is much less utilized space. The Anchor sticks to the bottom of your desk (via an adhesive) and can safely keep two pairs of headphones out of sight but always within reach.
The SteelSeries HS1 is a simple yet unique-looking headphone stand that's designed to work with SteelSeries's popular gaming headsets. But it can really safely hold most any pair of headphones just fine.
Grovemade Wood Headphone Stand
Grovemade is a master in wood-and-leather desktop accessories and it's headphone stand fits that description to a tee. That said, it's not a conventional-looking headphone stand, as it's a solid block of wood wrapped in leather that stands up vertically to hold your headphones.
Meze Audio Headphone Couch
The Headphone Couch is another unique take on the headphone stand. It's covered in vegan leather so it feels and looks beautiful (plus it won't scuff up your desk), and holds your headphones in a position that's kind of halfway between vertical and horizontal. It's also foldable, making it easy to store when not in use.
