Performance and Photos
Okay before we get into testing let’s take a quick look at what we are working with here. Basically In Win has created a headset hanger that looks similar to the horn on a horse saddle. That is the part that you hold on too if you aren’t sure what I’m talking about. Most everything else focuses on being more of a hook design, so right out of the box In Win is doing something a little different. It is available in black or white, for our testing we have the black model. What is nice about this design compared to a hook is that it is curved both front to back and left to right, this should help keep your headset padding from getting a big dent in it where you hang it.
The bottom of the iEAR has a large suction cup on it. This is what will hold everything up.
Okay so to install the iEAR you find the surface that you are looking to hang it on, point the arrow up, then twist the iEAR while holding the base in place. This twist tightens the suction cup down. From there you are good to go.
So how did it perform in my testing? Well it is very dependent on the surface you decide to go with. To start things off I tried it on the side of my Case Labs case with a slightly textured power coated finish. It held well initially but over a day it did loose its suction and drop my headset. I tried directly on the acrylic window and this held rock solid. If you have smooth drywall walls you could mount it directly to the wall as well, in my office my walls have a heavy texture though so that was a no go for me. Where I can really see myself putting the iEAR to use is actually at LANs. I can toss it into my LAN bag and just hang my headset right off of the side of my case. This is great because space is tight at events and bringing a full headset stand isn’t always feasible.
