Once you’ve spent five hours struggling through instruction manuals and a million spare parts in an attempt to build your awesome gaming desk, cable management is often the next priority. But where on earth are you going to keep your $150 SteelSeries Arctis Pro headset?

Often overlooked, a headset or headphone stand is a handy addition to any gaming setup. Not only are they great for the overall organization of your workspace, but they also allow you to show off your best headphones to your friends. Having said that, there’s a variety of swanky USB and RGB accessories on the market, so which headset stand is the best?

Best Choice: Elevation Lab The Anchor Under-Desk Mount

Pros & Cons

  • Under-desk mount hides headphones for less clutter
  • Can hold two sets of headphones
  • Sturdy build with solid medical grade silicone
  • Hard to remove once stuck on a desk

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 4.1 x 1.4 x 2.2 inches
  • Weight: 49.89 g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Silicone

Elevation Lab The Anchor Under-Desk Mount Review

Technically more of a headphone hanger than a stand, Elevation Lab's under-desk mount is a simple cable management solution. Hence, it's our best choice headset stand for the year.

If your headphones have a built-in cable, hiding those wires using a stand that sits on your desk can be difficult, especially if the cable is long. To solve that problem, Elevation Lab have created a value-for-money, under the desk ‘Anchor’ that hides your headphones and their wires.

As there isn’t really a proper cable management system, it’s mostly an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ situation, which is good enough for most people.

Made from a durable, soft silicone material, The Anchor is capable of holding two sets of headphones. And, thanks to the steel pin inner reinforcement, it isn't moving anywhere. The downside? Once you stick the Anchor under your desk there’s no moving it, so choose wisely where you want it to go before you stick it into place.

Premium Pick: LUXA2 E-One

Pros & Cons

  • Sturdy design
  • Made from diamond cut aluminum
  • Compatible with all headphones
  • Rubber bottom for stability
  • Only suitable for 1 headset

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 10.24 x 4.16 x 4.53 inches
  • Weight: 526.16 g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Aluminum

LUXA2 E-One Aluminum Headphone Stand Review

Next up is a more premium choice headphone stand made from high-grade aluminium, the LUXA2 E-One. It's a stylish yet simple stand available in 4 different color options that vary in price, and while rose gold is the cheapest color option, we stuck with silver. A color that effortlessly matches any office space.

The 1.2 lb diamond-cut base sits comfortably on any desk ensuring your headphones are stable, regardless of how wobbly your desk may be. There aren't many cons when it comes to the LUXA2 E-One, only the fact that it's only suitable for one headset. So if you're after a dual headset stand, stick around till the end.

Best Value: AmoVee Acrylic

Pros & Cons

  • Universally-sized stand
  • Sleek, minimal design
  • Sturdy acrylic
  • Tips over easily

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 10.2 x 2.7 x 5.8 inches
  • Weight: 249.47 g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Acrylic

AmoVee Acrylic Headphone Stand Review

Our best value headset stand for 2020 is the AmoVee acrylic stand, one that is minimalistic in style, good on the bank, and practical in the office. Coming in two different colors, black and transparent, it can easily compliment any gaming setup.

Plus, if your headset is much wider than average, worry not, as AmoVee sell a wider version in black for just a couple dollars more, accommodating for most headphones on the market.

Compared to its predecessor, the updated version of the AmoVee acrylic stand is much thicker. Which, together with the sponge pads, you’d think would improve the overall stability - except it doesn’t.

Alternatively, this stand has a tendency to tip over easily as it's very lightweight. Considering the price of the AmoVee headset stand, we couldn’t complain too much about it, as at the end of the day, adhesive pads exist for a reason.

If you like this product and you're on a budget, go ahead and check out the best budget headset for gaming.

Best Single: Audio Technica AT-HPH300 Hanger

Pros & Cons

  • Adjustable clamp to secure it to any desk or shelf up to 3.5mm
  • Leatherette padding to protect headphones
  • Plastic is a little flimsy

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 8 x 2 x 5 inches
  • Weight: 90g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Leatherette and plastic

Audio Technica AT-HPH300 Hanger Review

Another under the desk hook that couldn’t quite win against the Anchor is Audio Technica’s HPH300 Hanger. It’s a little flimsy, though it accommodates to most headphones up to 1kg with a headband width of 50 mm. Unlike the Anchor, it clamps onto any shelf or desk up to 3.5mm thick and rotates 360-degrees for an easy storage solution.

To prevent your headphones from getting scratched, the AT-HPH300 hanger features soft leatherette padding to protect from any damage. It won’t hold two headphones like the Anchor will, except it does a brilliant job at holding just one headset.

Best USB Charging: Satechi Aluminum USB Stand

Pros & Cons

  • Backside hook for cable to be wrapped around
  • 3 USB ports for back-up data
  • Rubberized grip on the bottom
  • Ports don't work well for charging devices

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 2.8 x 0.7 x 4.9 inches
  • Weight: 508 g
  • USB ports: 3
  • Material: Aluminum

Satechi Aluminum USB Stand Review

With similar aesthetics to the LUXA2 E-One, the Satechi Aluminum stand acts as a USB charging station for multiple USB peripherals. Coming in a variety of colors: space gray, silver, gold and rose gold, it compliments Apple products well. But it does a lot more than just look good.

As suggested by the name, the 3 USB 3.0 ports enable you to charge devices and transfer files/backup data with speeds of up to 5 Gbps. Alongside the ports it boasts a 3.5mm jack, enabling you to plug headphones directly into the stand.

The Satechi even has a convenient hook on the side of it, perfect for cable management, so if you hate seeing cables all over your desk, neatly tuck them away.

Turtle Beach Ear Force HS1

Pros & Cons

  • Minimal design
  • Rubber feet to prevent sliding
  • Disappointing build quality despite the price

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 11 x 2 x 7 inches
  • Weight: 232.46 g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Matte with metal brackets

Turtle Beach Ear Force HS1 Review

Turtle Beach is a popular name in the gaming headphone market, but did you know that they also create stands? The Ear Force HS1 headset stand is universally compatible, so regardless of what headphones you own, you can feel at ease knowing they will fit on this Turtle Beach headphone stand.

With a sleek matte black finish and chromed metal brackets, there’s no doubt that this is a stylish looking stand. Now, for the price, we expected a better build quality. Nonetheless, the Turtle Beach Ear Force HS1 works well in any gaming space, especially with some Turtle Beach headphones on it.

Wooden Omega Headphone Stand

Pros & Cons

  • Solid build
  • Contemporary design
  • Wobbly

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 11 x 7.1 x 4.7 inches
  • Weight: 544.31 g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Wood

Wooden Omega Headphone Stand Review

Now onto a few wooden headphone stands. First up, the Omega, a walnut finished modern stand that offers a premium aesthetic. Not only that, but the build is solid and surprisingly affordable. It’s 10-inches tall, therefore it can accommodate for most headphone, and as it’s so pleasing on the eye, it looks great as a decoration piece while your headset is in use.

Sadly, much like the AmoVee acrylic stand, the wooden Omega headphone stand is pretty wobbly. This could be common among curved style stands, though we expected a little more for the price and materials used.

Avantree Universal Wooden and Aluminum Stand

Pros & Cons

  • Stable cable cradle
  • Taller, suitable for big headphones
  • Only fits headphones that are 5cm wide on the top

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 12 x 5.3 x 7.3 inches
  • Weight: 391.22 g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Wood and Aluminum

Avantree Universal Wooden and Aluminum Stand Review

One thing we haven’t seen thus far is a stand that offers a cable cradle, and that’s now about to change. The Avantree universal headphone stand, made from wood and a tough aluminum, features a bamboo dish at the bottom for cables and other desk clutter.

Alas, if your headphones are wider than 5 cm or taller than 30.5 cm, they simply won’t fit onto the Avantree stand. In this instance, it’s best to continue onto our list to find one that does fit your headphones or headset.

Jokitech Double Aluminum Headphone Stand

Pros & Cons

  • Strong stand and base
  • Rubber anti-indentation leather grips to support headphones
  • Could do with more weight at the bottom

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 11 x 4.7 x 8.7 inches
  • Weight: 471.73 g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Aluminum

Jokitech Double Aluminum Headphone Stand Review

Own more than one pair of headphones? We have you covered with some of the best dual headset stands out there. This headphone stand by Jokitech is a quality choice dual stand made from aluminum. Alongside a sturdy metal, the top where your headset would rest is covered with leather material to prevent your premium headset from getting scratched.

Rubber feet provide a stable foundation for your headphones to sit on. That, as well as the base, ensure your headphones stay put. We'd prefer if the stand was a little bit heavier to prevent wobbling all together, yet the Jokitech dual stand does the job at safely holding your headset for a premium price.

Neetto Dual Headphone Stand

Pros & Cons

  • Easy to assemble
  • Storage at the bottom for cables
  • Could be more sturdy for its price

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 9.8 x 4.7 x 7 inches
  • Weight: 521.63 g
  • USB ports: 0
  • Material: Plastic and metal

Neetto Dual Headphone Stand Review

Just like our second wooden headset stand, this Avantree Neetto dual hanger features a very handy storage tray along the bottom for pens, elastic bands, and other random items you find around your room. The stand comes in black or matte black for a more sophisticated finish, with a sturdy metal base to prevent it from tipping over.

Much like our other dual stand, the Jokitech, this Neettoo dual could be sturdier. In spite of this fact, the stand holds two headphones and random clutter for under $20, a very affordable price.

Razer Base Station Chroma

Pros & Cons

  • 3 USB ports
  • RGB lighting powered by Razer Chroma
  • Detachable headphone stand
  • Lighting reacts to Windows notifications
  • Expensive

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 8.4 x 4.1 x 7.7 inches
  • Weight: 403.56 g
  • USB ports: 3
  • Material: Plastic

Razer Base Station Chroma Review

Finally, some RGB stands to light up and enhance any workspace - and this first one isn't just made by any old brand. Instead, we chose one created by Razer, a company known for their high-performance hardware, software and systems. Just like their gaming hardware, the Razer base station Chroma is a high-quality accessory made to last.

It's a perfect hybrid between a headset stand and a charging hub thanks to the 3, USB 3.0 ports for USB peripherals. Also, if you have any other Razer Chroma enabled peripherals, you can sync them all together with this stand for a colorful gaming setup. It's on the pricier side, yet you get what you pay for with the Razer Chroma base station.

Corsair ST100 RGB Headset Stand

Pros & Cons

  • 2 USB ports
  • 3.5mm input
  • Sync across Corsair peripherals
  • Aluminum build
  • Pricey
  • Ports don't charge devices very well

Specifications:

  • Dimensions: 9.8 x 4.7 x 4.7 inches
  • Weight: 698.53 g
  • USB ports: 2
  • Material: Aluminum

Corsair ST100 RGB Headset Stand Review

Last but not least is an RGB stand by Corsair, another brand known for their high-grade gaming PC's, peripherals, and other gaming hardware. Like the Razer stand, it's pretty pricey, except we believe you get what you pay for with the ST100.

Alongside the 9-zone RGB lighting for you to play around with, there are two USB 3.1 ports and a built-in 3.5mm analog input for your headphones. The build quality of the Corsair ST100 RGB headset stand is brilliant thanks to the use of aircraft-grade aluminum throughout.

Speeedlink Estrado Stand

Design

Headset stands come in all different shapes and sizes, most commonly curved, tall, and what I like to call ‘banana hanger style’.
