The 8 Best Gaming Headset Stands in 2021 – An Honest Guide & Review
If you have a headset but don’t have a headset stand, there’s a strong chance that you leave your headset somewhere on your desk or balance it on the edge of the monitor.
In today’s guide, we’ll review the best gaming headset stands on the market to help you pick the one that suits your gaming setup the most.
We took on the challenge to find the best gaming headset stand you can get this year and rounded up our top 8 in this article.
The selection process was quite simple. First, we spent time researching the customer’s pain points and needs when it comes to headset stands.
With that, we created a 4 point criteria to follow when researching all of the products. This helped us narrow down our final 8.
We found that the average gaming headset stand was between 8 and 10 inches in height, featured a sturdy and anti-slip base, and protected your headset padding from any weight-related damage when you leave your headset hanging on the stand.
Without further ado, let’s jump in.
We conducted in-depth research to find the pain points and needs of current and potential owners of gaming headset stands.
After we understood the needs of the consumer we came up with a 4-point checklist which we used to judge every single product that we came across.
This helped us filter through all of the gaming headset stands that we came across and only pick the best ones for our final selection.
After conducting community research and analyzing our findings, we laid out criteria to judge all of the products we found in order to narrow down our final 8 picks.
These selection points were:
First and foremost, we decided to take the price of the product into serious consideration. This is because how much a particular accessory costs can greatly influence our reader’s decision to buy or skip a particular product, even if they really liked it.
Thus, rather than focusing on the highest end products that also costed hundreds of dollars, we ensured to dedicate our attention to finding the best products within a range of different price brackets so that there is something for everyone’s needs and budget.
Besides that, we haven’t included any products in this guide that we don’t believe are worth their price point. This goes for both higher priced and lower priced items.
As we are gamers ourselves, we understand the importance of how an accessory looks visually and whether or not any given product will improve or damage the look of our overall setup.
Besides visual appeal, we ensured to select products with a practical design that could actually do the job that they are designed to do for a very long time. After concluding our research and analyzing our findings, we concluded that the community is after 2 types of gaming headset stands; on-desk and under-desk variants.
Thus, we ensured to not only find visually appealing products but also supply a range of stands that were suited for either on-desk or under-desk use.
While some gamers might be after a headset stand that is purely designed to do its job, which is holding your headset in place while you are idle, we understood that others might want a little bit more out of a headset stand.
Thus, we ensured to include headset stands that featured USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, customizable and sync-able RGB lights, and even an integrated wireless charging dock so that you can easily charge your phone by simply placing it on top of your headphone stand.
Of course, the more integrated features, the higher price you will need to pay, and so, we ensured to provide you with an extensive range of stands that either had it all, some, or none.
There is no secret that once you purchase a stand for your headset, you would expect to use it for years in the future and expect it to outlive a range of different headsets that you will use over the years.
Because of that, we understood that the compatibility of the stand is super important so that it can accommodate a range of different headsets that you may end up using over the years. Thus, we ensured to only include designs that accommodate pretty much every type of headset out there on the market today.

Picking the Right Headset Stand for Your Headset
If you have come this far within this guide, you are probably having a difficult time with making a decision as to which gaming headset stand to go for. To give you a helping hand in picking a product that meets all of your gaming needs as well as fits within your budget, we will provide you with a couple of different scenarios alongside the most suitable stand for that particular case.
Hopefully, you will be able to relate to at least one of those and by the end of it, you will have found the perfect stand for you.
Scenario 1: You have a pretty high-end gaming setup and are looking for a more comprehensive high-quality gaming headphones stand. Money isn’t really an objection to you so you are happy to pay for something that hosts a range of awesome integrated features such as customizable RGB lights, wireless charging for your mobile phone, USB ports, and ultra-durable and sturdy base.
In this case, we would highly recommend you to go for our top RGB pick, the awesome ASUS ROG Throne Qi.
Scenario 2: You are on a pretty tight budget so you don’t really care about any RGB lights, USB ports, or wireless charging. You are after a decent headset stand that does what it is supposed to do.
In such case, we would highly recommend you to go for our top budget-friendly pick, the New Bee Headphone Stand.
Scenario 3: You have 2 headsets and are struggling with finding a solution that can keep your headsets organized without purchasing 2 separate headset stands.
In such case, we would recommend you our top pick for a dual headset stand, the RGB Dual Headphone Stand.
Scenario 4: You are playing on a relatively small desk and don’t really have anywhere to put your headset, but also don’t want to just leave it on your desk or try and balance it on your monitor.
In that case, you could take advantage of a headset stand that is designed to stay under your desk. Our top pick for such stand is the COZOO Under Desk Headset Hanger but you could also take a look at the cheaper Gaming Headset Hook Holder by EURPMASK, which is another great option.
You don’t need to pay a lot of money for an RGB-enabled headset stand, however, if you desire optimal customization and the ability to sync your headset stand with the rest of your setup, you will have to spend quite a bit more.
If you are specifically looking for a stand that can do its job, they are all designed to do the same thing. The only difference from our most affordable pick and our most expensive product is the range of integrated features and level of RGB customization that the latter possesses.
Both the under-desk and on-desk gaming headphone stands are fantastic choices. It purely depends on which one you prefer and can accommodate within your current gaming setup.
