A headset stand is a type of product that can be either a very plain accessory meant only to hold your headset, or it can actually double as a USB hub, serving as a convenient means of charging not only your wireless headset (if you own one) but other peripherals as well.

In this article, we will be looking at a diverse selection of headset stands and headphone stands that fall into either of those categories, narrowing down the selection and helping you pick out whichever one is right for you! In fact, a headphone stand is a great idea as a gift for a gamer.

So, without further ado, let’s begin!

Comparison: Top 7 Headphone Stands For 2019

AmoVee Headphone Stand

The first on our list is a simple no-frills headphone stand with a stylish minimal design. The stand itself is quite stable and is a good fit for most headsets, providing a convenient means of storing your own without taking up too much desk space nor grabbing too much attention.

On top of that, the stand comes in two variants: the standard black one with an opaque glossy surface, as well as a translucent one that is a much better fit for headphones and headsets that are predominantly white in color.

One issue that’s not detected immediately is the fact that the stand is very light. This can make it a bit unstable, especially when placing a headset on or taking it off with only one hand. Other than that, there are no major problems with the stand, although the black variant turns out to be quite a dust magnet, as is always the case with glossy surfaces.

What We Loved

  • Minimal and neutral design
  • Highly inconspicuous
  • Affordable

What We Didn’t Like

  • Not the most stable stand
  • Dust and fingerprints stick easily to the glossy surface

6amLifestyle Headset Stand

Next up is a somewhat different solution coming from 6amLifestyle. Their headset stand is made of metal and is actually mounted on the side of your desk with the help of a clamp, something that can be really useful for those who are running short on desk space.

When attached, the clamp is remarkably stable, and much like the AmoVee stand, it comes in two variants to suit different tastes: black and white. Furthermore, the silicon cushioning allows the clamp to be tightened firmly with no risk of damaging the desk material.

All things considered, the stand itself is quite solid for everyday use, although it doesn’t seem particularly stable when mounted on a curved surface, despite being advertised as such. Nonetheless, the majority of people will be mounting the stand on the side of their desks, so this isn’t as big of an issue.

What We Loved

  • Solid metal build
  • Stable
  • Padding prevents damage to desk

What We Didn’t Like

  • Not as stable on rounded surfaces as advertised

OAPRIRE Headset Stand

Coming up next, we have yet another mountable headset stand, only this one is made by Oaprire. Much like the AmoVee stand, this one comes with a glossy acrylic exterior and it takes the minimalistic approach even further.

The stand can be mounted on a wall with virtually no hassle. There is no drilling involved, something that the manufacturer makes abundantly clear from the get-go. Instead, it relies entirely on an adhesive tape on the back. What’s more, the package includes two stands, as well as two simple rubber clips intended to hold cables.

So, all in all, the Oaprire headset stand is a great alternative to the 6amLifestyle one for those who would prefer a wall-mounted headset stand of a desk-mounted one. The adhesive is surprisingly strong and no headphones or headset will be too heavy for it. The only qualm we have with it is the same old propensity of glossy surfaces to attract dust and fingerprints.

What We Loved

  • Highly stable due to strong adhesive
  • Can be repositioned
  • Minimal and inconspicuous design

What We Didn’t Like

  • Dust and fingerprints stick easily to the glossy surface

Cozoo Headset Stand

With this Cozoo headset stand, we get to the more advanced, pricier solutions. Like the previous two, this one is a mountable stand that is installed on the underside of your desk with the help of either adhesive tape or a set of screws. However, the manufacturer suggests using the screws if you’re planning on storing accessories that weigh more than 500g (around 1.10 lb) in total.

Now, Cozoo’s stand can hold two headsets simultaneously, while the indentations can be used either for cable management or for storing earbuds. Furthermore, one of the more noticeable features are the three USB ports that can be used for charging any peripherals or accessories, all the while the stand itself is powered via a non-detachable power cable.

With all that said, this Cozoo product is an excellent mix of a versatile headphone/headset/earbud storing device and a reliable USB charging hub for all your peripherals. There are no major shortcomings to speak of, although it is a bit jarring that the power cable is attached to the underside rather than the side of the product.

What We Loved

  • Both adhesive and screws are highly stable
  • Three USB charging ports
  • Suitable for storing both headsets and earbuds

What We Didn’t Like

  • Cable being attached to the underside could lead to some damage over time

Satechi Headset Stand

With this Satechi headset stand, we come back to simple desktop solutions. This particular headset stand is made of aluminum and comes in a variety of colors: silver, space grey, gold, and rose gold. But don’t be fooled by the flashy build – this stand is not just about looking good.

Namely, it also incorporates three USB 3.0 ports that support data transfer. What this means is that it doubles as a USB hub, and it also incorporates a 3.5mm jack, allowing you to plug your headphones directly into the stand. Furthermore, on the back of the stand, you’ll find a hook that can be quite convenient for cable management.

Needless to say, this Satechi headset stand is a quality product inside and out, and it should definitely be among your top picks if you’re looking for a stand that doubles as a USB hub. However, as stated by the manufacturer, the ports are not meant for charging but only for data transfer, which is quite disappointing. The only other issue that we have with it are the screws on the front that really should have been covered up.

What We Loved

  • Quality aluminum build
  • Three USB 3.0 ports with data transfer
  • Cable management hook on the back

What We Didn’t Like

  • USB ports not meant for charging
  • Unsightly screws on the front

CORSAIR ST100 RGB

And now, we have a headset stand from Corsair, a company that surely needs no introduction. It, too, is made of aluminum, although it opts exclusively for a darker exterior so as to better bring out the RGB lighting at the base and the logo on the front.

Feature-wise, the Corsair ST100 seems a bit lacking as far as USB connectivity is concerned, seeing as it only comes with two usable USB 3.1 ports, although this is understandable considering that it is a newer version of the USB port that supports both faster charging and faster data transfer speeds. As a plus, there is also a 3.5mm analog audio jack which, obviously, allows you to plug your headset directly into the stand with no loss in audio quality whatsoever.

All things considered, there is no denying that the ST100 is one truly superbly-built premium quality headphone stand that comes with a plethora of features that justify its high price tag. However, it remains highly subjective whether the RGB is worth the extra expense.

What We Loved

  • Premium build quality
  • Two USB 3.1 ports with data transfer
  • Analog audio jack
  • Great RGB lighting

What We Didn’t Like

  • Expensive

Razer Base Station Chroma

best headphone stands

Coming in at the same price tag, we have Razer’s own RGB headset stand. It shifts some priorities around, though, as it is not made of aluminum but high-quality plastic instead. In turn, it adds an extra USB 3.0 port, amounting to a total of three usable ports.

Other than that, Razer’s Base Station Chroma is fairly similar to Corsair’s ST100 in that it also utilizes RGB lighting at the base, although it lacks the headphone jack. One unique feature is the ability to detach the stand itself, which leaves the user with a nice portable USB hub.

Furthermore, a cheaper non-RGB version is available at a slightly lower price. This would definitely be a plus if it weren’t just a piece of plastic that was not only scrapping the RGB lighting but the USB ports as well.

In the end, the only bad thing we have to hold against the RGB version of the Base Station is the underwhelming build quality. True enough, it is still very solid, although with other, cheaper stands successfully incorporating aluminum into their design, one can’t help but feel that Razer is holding out on us with the build quality.

What We Loved

  • Solid plastic build
  • Three USB 3.0 ports with data transfer
  • Superb Chroma RGB lighting

What We Didn’t Like

  • Subpar build quality in this price range
  • Non-RGB variant is an overpriced piece of plastic with no features whatsoever

Conclusion – The Best Headphone Stand of 2019

When all is said and done, our top pick would have to be the Corsair ST100.

Headset stands are quite varied, both in terms of the features that they offer and when it comes to the prices. This makes it somewhat difficult to pinpoint the winner, as each product offers a different set of features at a different price tag.

With that said, we often tend to pick the product which offers the best value, but understandably, that is not quite easy to do in this case. As such, we have opted to go with the stand which just seems to present the best overall quality, and that would be the aforementioned Corsair ST100.

The stand is very sturdy and stable, comes with solid RGB lighting and the two USB 3.1 ports will probably be more than enough for most users. Moreover, the build quality itself is the main reason why we picked Corsair’s solution over the one presented by Razer, despite Razer’s Base Station having noticeably better RGB lighting and one extra RGB port.

But of course, that’s only our choice. Maybe you don’t need a premium headset stand with RGB lighting, maybe you don’t even need a USB hub. Whatever the case, you will not go wrong with any of the headset stands included here, so long as you keep their capabilities and specifications, as well as your needs and preferences in mind.
