Satechi’s new headphone stand is more than just that, and the company makes it clear with the product’s name: Aluminum USB 3.0 Headphone Stand ($35). So yes, it is a headphone stand, complete with two hooks for cable management in back and a pad up top to keep the headphones from being scratched by the aluminum construction. But the stand doubles as a USB hub, offering three USB 3.0 ports. A USB cable comes with the stand, to connect to your Mac, thus enabling the hub. A 3.5mm port is also included to plug in your headphones. Aluminum USB 3.0 Headphone Stand comes in silver, space gray, or gold, as seen here.
Aluminum USB 3.0 Headphone Stand is appealing for a number of reasons — not only is it an attractive and functional headphone stand, but its functionality as a three-port USB 3.0 hub warrants even further consideration. Users looking for either a headphone stand or a USB 3.0 hub might find this multitasking offering from Satechi is a smarter purchase than buying either product separately. Though the stand makes plenty of sense as a single purchase, it also matches other Satechi Mac accessories, such as the company’s recent Aluminum Monitor Stand.
