8 Best Headphone Stands For Your Desktop: Editor’s Choice 2023

Looking for the best way to display your headphones? We have 8 options that work well and will not crush your bank account.

Best Headphone Stands

The explosive growth of the headphone market over the past decade has created a real need for headphone stands; especially when some are spending up to $5,000 on a single pair and want immediate access on the desktop and a better way to maintain their shape.

The “Best” headphone stand for you really depends on the specific model and how much you are willing to spend.

A headphone stand is a device that is used to hold headphones when they are not in use, and is typically made of materials such as plastic, metal, or wood that is designed to support the weight of the headphones and prevent them from being damaged or getting tangled.

Headphone stands come in a variety of designs and styles, ranging from simple and functional to decorative and stylish. Some stands are designed to be mounted on a desk or table, while others are freestanding and can be placed on a shelf or other flat surface.

It typically consists of a base and a vertical support that holds the headphones. The base can be made of various materials such as wood, metal, plastic, or acrylic, and may feature additional features such as cable management, USB ports for charging, or LED lighting.

There are many companies that make high-quality headphone stands, but not all of them can support the weight of the larger audiophile over-ear models which is why we love products like the Sieveking Sound Omega.

Our “Best” options range from relatively affordable to rather pricey but all of them offer durability, quality construction, and work well on the desktop.

    Ian –

    These stands look nice and I certainly could use one or two, until then I keep many my ‘phones in their respective case and two are out for use on a wall hanger/hook of sorts. Thank you for this article on them!
