For a long time I’ve been wanting to write more about headphone stands and I’m thinking of the Woo stands, Klutz Design, Rooms and Sievekings of this world. Unfortunately I haven’t had time to write about all these yet.
I’m a big fan of those nice wooden headphone stands and I use a whole bunch of them in my office. In the living room I have a nice Klutz Design Cancan that I like very much.
Everyone probably knows Brainwavz. We’ve reviewed a couple of their IEMs here on Headfonia and the tiny M2 is still one of my favorite universal fit IEMs. Brainwavz on a very regular basis brings out new budget IEMs but we simply don’t have the time to cover all of their products on the main site.
Just last week I received one of their press communication about this new headphone stand, and well, I immediately liked it. It’s not at all like the headphone stands I mentioned in the earlier paragraphs (even though Brainwavz has one), but it’s small and very handy. Meet the Hooka. (bold is Brainwavz copywriting)
Actually the Hooka isn’t a headphone stand, it’s a headphone hanger. A compact, multi purpose hanger, made from die-cast aluminum and designed to fit most headphones of any weight. A solid construction means the Hooka won’t loose shape and form whilst holding even the heaviest of headphones. The specially designed seat on the Hooka can accommodate both small and large headbands, whilst the raised tip will stop headphones falling off.
What I like most about the Hooka is the fact that it’s small (I can use it at work in my other office where may dayjob is) and it doesn’t hurt the headband. The carrying plate of the Hooka is curved and has no sharp edges anywhere, something a whole lot of other “hanger designs” didn’t take into account. I like to make sure my headphones sat in the best possible shape, so only the best “hanger” is good enough for me.
Solid and dependable, the Hooka attaches to a surface using 3M VHB™, a strong double-sided acrylic foam tape that can hold the heaviest of loads. The Hooka’s simple design and durability makes it a handy solution for your headphone storage needs. And that’s exactly what it is: the Hooka is strong (die-cast aluminum), small, sticks like Tec7 , it makes sure your headphone doesn’t fall and it doesn’t damage it in any way. Could you ask for anything more for only $17.95USD?
Quick and Easy
No, the Hooka isn’t the most sexy looking headphone stand on earth but it does the job in a good and safe way. I myself have glued it against my desk so the cups don’t touch the side of my closet or anything. It’s easy to put my headphones on when I go out to lunch or have a meetingt. It also makes my desk look a whole lot cleaner. Win! Except for the name. Maybe.
