Just Mobile HeadStand Review

Gear Diary Just Mobile HeadStand 001

So you’ve got a pair of big, beautiful, great sounding headphones like the SMS STREET by 50 DJ over-the-ear headphones I reviewed last month. Sure, you could store them in the included football-shaped case,heretofore referred to as the “fbcase”, but that quickly becomes pain if you use them on a regular basis. I mean, do you really want to have to unzip the “fbcase”, remove the headphones and attach the cord each and every time you want to listen to music without disturbing the other people in the house? And that doesn’t take into account having to disconnect the cord, fold the headphones, stuff both the headphones and the cord back into the fbcase and zip the whole thing up when you are done listening. I mean, seriously, this is one huge “1st World Problem”.

Thankfully Just Mobile has a solution. The Just Mobile HeadStand is an elegant home for your headphones that guarantees they will always be within reach. Let’s take a look.

From Just Mobile:

The high-design headphone hanger: Just Mobile HeadStand is the perfect place to hang your high-design headphones. Precision engineered from aluminium, this desktop stand keeps your prized headphones on display – and within easy reach. HeadStand’s dual-layered aluminium base even features a storage space for your headphone cable – keeping your desk tidy, and your music only a moment away.

The HeadStand is a simple proposition that has one single job. It does the job quite well. The HeadStand comes in four parts; there is a base which is basically two circles of aluminum separated by a small gap, there are two aluminum legs and there is the aluminum hanger. And while it comes only partially assembled, you can have the HeadStand set up and ready for use in a matter of seconds using the four included screws.

Note: If you think it looks a bit like the contraptions that are used for hanging bananas you are not alone. That what Elana thought the second I put the HeadStand together. Fortunately, this stand is far more elegant and finely crafted than the banana hooks you’ll find at the Dollar Store, although I guess you could use it for that as well.

The headphones hang from the top of the HeadStand and, if you so choose, the cord can be safely wrapped between the two bottom plates. This not only helps keep your desk nice and neat but it also prevents the cord from getting snagged and potentially damaged amidst the mess of papers and other assorted goodies.

And while the cord-wrap technique does make for a cleaner package, I find it slows down the process of grabbing the headphones and putting them on. Simply throwing the cord of the SMS STREET by 50 DJs over the hanger works just fine for me

As you can see, this is a simple but effective way to safely hang your headphones and keep them accessible at all times.

And the HeadStand works equally well with the Phiaton PS 300 NC Premium Noise Canceling Headphones I reviewed last week. In fact, I tried them with a host of different headphones and it worked fine and looked great with each.

Do you NEED an accessory like the HeadStand? Certainly not. Do I recommend the HeadStand for anyone who listens to a large pair of over-the-ear or on-the-ear headphones on a regular basis? Absolutely. The HeadStand has the same minimalist design we have come to appreciate from Just Mobile. It is attractive in its own right and does exactly what it promises. And while you may not think you want or need the HeadStand, once you start using it I bet it will have an official place on your desk or nightstand.

You can learn more and order yours here on the Just Mobile website.

MSRP: $49.95

What I Like: Simple and elegant; Nicely crafted from aluminum; Does exactly what it promises

What Needs Improvement: You don’t really need this accessory but it is kind of cool and sort of useful
