Review: HeadStand from Just Mobile

The fine folks at Just Mobile have always made good products for a variety of Apple devices, but this latest accessory will work in a variety of scenarios. The HeadStand is the company’s attempt to create a stand that works well with a pair of over the ear headphones, and it’s a product that I’ve been using on a daily basis for quite a few months now.

If you own a pair of cans, then you either already own a proper stand, or have probably always intended to invest in one. I know I was in the same boat for quite a while, and I didn’t actually have a proper stand until Just Mobile sent one over. How does the HeadStand perform? Take a look inside as I break it all down on video…

Although I’m not very experienced with headphone stands in general, I’ve been impressed with Just Mobile’s venture into the market. The HeadStand is light weight, easy to assemble, and it’s made from attractive looking aluminum. You can get it in the traditional aluminum color, or an anodized aluminum version in black. The stand ships in a compact box, but can be quickly and easily assembled using two included screws. The bottom of the stand features a non-slip pad to keep your headphones secure on your desk, and the top features a groove that plays nice with a variety of different headphone sizes and styles.

One of my favorite features about the HeadStand is its built in cord management system. Although, admittedly, I don’t have a pair or headphones where I can truly take advantage of the system — I have a pair of Sony MDR-7506’s with a coiled cabled — it’s a well thought out idea that will work for many pairs of headphones out there with straight cables. At the bottom of the HeadStand, you’ll notice a gapped area, which allows users to wrap the cable of the headphones around a spindle as a way to manage the cord. I’ve always had a problem with tangled headphone cables, and it’s probably one of the most annoying things in the world, but this feature seeks to cut down on the prospects of that.

If you’re in the market for a proper headphone management solution, then I recommend that you at least look at the HeadStand. Some may balk at its price as $49.95, which is a little bit pricey. I can attest, though, that after months of usage, this little stand has served me well. Not only is it very minimalistic, and good looking, but it’s extremely functional and does a great job of keeping your headphone’s within easy access. Knowing what I know now, I’d be willing to purchase it at $49.95 and feel pretty good about my purchase.
