Many people have headphones in their offices — to use with Skype calls, to block out noise, to listen to music in a multi-person office, etc. But placing those headphones down on the desk takes up a lot of space. There are ways to hang headphones off walls or cubicle panels — but for now, let’s look at some of the more interesting freestanding headphone stands.

Woo Audio has adjustable-height aluminum headphone stands — both single and double versions. They’re available in either a black or silver finish.
If you’d prefer wood, there’s the HS1 headphone stand from FiiO.
H.A.L Woodworking offers single and double headphone stands — both standard and custom. You have a choice of wood stains, plus black — and side pegs, for wrapping the cords around, are also an option.
And Last Summer Treasures offers a bamboo headphone stand — a variation on the bracelet displays the company also sells.
The Omega headphone stand from Sieveking Sound is pretty amazing; it’s also on the pricier side.
If you like that shape, you could also look at the Brainwavz Peridot headphone stand, made from plastic.
And CA Electronics has a headphone stand, made from aluminum, with a somewhat similar style. It’s available in black, white and red.
Headphile has some very cool-looking headphone stands; they come in various sizes, to accommodate one to four headphone sets. There are 11 wood choices, and an option for taller-than-normal stand. The risers are made from “black lacquer coated heavy wall PVC.” [via HeadphoneScout]
Room’s Audio Line has some lovely headphone stands, including this one. These come from Germany, and Thomann sells them throughout much of Europe — but I haven’t found a retailer in the U.S.
If you have 2,000-4,760 Swedish kronor to spend ($312-$742), you could look at the Klutz Design CanCans. The more expensive ones are made from black or tanned leather. You can get them through Aaudio Imports for $599-$799.
And if you want a low-cost option, a number of sites have recommended re-purposing a banana hanger as a headphone hanger. Of course, there are plenty of basic headphone hangers, too — from Case Star, Cosmos and others.
