A good pair of headphones is quickly becoming a part of everyone's life. Whether you are work, producing music, gaming, working out, for gym work out sessions, or whenever — you must keep them safe when not in use. Unlike earbuds that majorly come in carrying cases, not all headphone makers ship their products with cases or stands.
That's why headphone stand is an important piece of accessory. For one, stands help prolong the longevity of your headphones, prevent them from damage, and improve the overall lifespan. That is because the stand prevents your headphones from scratches from objects, wearing off, and falling off easily.
Secondly, headphone stands help to declutter your workspace. Some premium headphone stands sport extra aesthetic features like LED lightning, USB ports for charging your headphones, as well as clips/trays where you can keep your chargers and cables.
If you are ever in the market for a headphone stand, these are some of the best ones you can get in the market.
Manufactured by Corsair Components, Inc., an American computer peripherals and hardware company, the CORSAIR ST100 is one of the best headphones stands out there. Despite having a minimalist design and construction, the customizable RGB lighting boosts the stand's aesthetic score. That is something you'd love if you are a gamer. Other unique features of the CORSAIR ST100 include Dual USB 3.1 ports for charging your headphones (and other devices) and a 3.5mm audio input jack that supports full surround sound 7.1.
The CORSAIR ST100 is made of sturdy aluminum material and the base is rubberized to improve stability & prevent it from slipping from whatever surface you place it. Users have commended the product's quality as well as the RGB lightning.
The CORSAIR ST100 also comes in a version of the product without RGB lighting and it is relatively cheaper.
