Have you ever wondered how to organize headphones or earbuds in your work or home office? This article will address that topic and give you options.
In this day and age of open workspaces and collaborative working environments, headphones and ear buds are becoming more and more popular in the workplace. I know that when I am in my cubicle, I always have my headphones on or ear buds in depending on which one I choose for that day.
A Headphones Hanger is a Novel Office Accessory
I use them to listen to a podcast or online radio via my cell phone as it really helps to cut down on the ever-present surrounding office noise.
Even while I am working from home I always use either my AYL Bluetooth ear buds or my corded Panasonic headset while I am on a GoToMeeting conference call with the home office. So this brings up the issue of where in my office should I store the headphones while I am not using them?

Frequently Asked Questions about Headphones Hangers
How do I keep my headphones at my desk?
There are different ways in which you can store headphones. Two very popular methods are the under-the-desk headphones hanger and the other is the headphone stand. The benefit of the under-the-desk headphones holder is that it will not take up any real estate on your desktop. The headphone stand is an accessory that sits directly on a surface such as your desktop.
What can I hang my headphones on?
There are a number of different hangers upon which you can hang your headphones. I work in a cubicle and oftentimes before I had my specialized headphones holder, I would simply hang them on my cubicle wall where one side of the headphone was on one side and the other was on the other side of the wall.
Another option is to purchase a cubicle hanger which is typically used to hang your coat hanger and your coat. The best solution is to use a specialized headphone hanger or a headphone stand.
How can I make a DIY under desk headphone hanger?
One method that is fairly cheap is to use iron pipe fittings that you can get at any big box store. You can start with a floor flange fitting which will be screwed into the underside of the wooden desk. Next screw a short threaded pipe (threaded on both sides which is approximately 3-4″) into the flange. Then screw in a 90 degree elbow fitting into the other side of the threaded pipe.
Next you screw another short threaded pipe (threaded on both sides which is approximately 3-4″) into the elbow fitting. To finish it off you can utilize a steel cap fitting to finish it off but the cap really isn’t necessary.
If you also think that you could use a high quality product of this type in your office or cubicle, I can honestly say that you cannot go wrong. You can probably figure out other uses for this 6AMLifeStyle Headphones Hanger as well. I bought one for my home office and one for my cubicle at work since I found it so useful.
