Overall and Final Verdict
So the iEAR is an interesting product. In Win designed something that no one else has really considered. For some people a headset stand on their desk would take up too much room. The iEAR lets you get creative with where you hang your headset while still getting your headset up and out of the way. With the iEAR mounted you might be surprised at just how much weight it can actually hold. In Win rates it at 1500 grams or 3.3 pounds! That is well above what your headset could possibly weigh. Installation is easy as well, all you have to do is line it up and twist the iEAR to suction it to your case, wall, or even desk. By using a suction cup you can move the iEAR around and aren’t locked into one spot like you would be with double sided sticky tape.
The iEAR isn’t perfect though. I did run into an issue getting it to stick to the slightly rough surface on my case after a day. You are going to have to make sure you have a good smooth surface to attach it too. So how much will it cost you? Well it is listed for $15 currently, this is less than other headset stands currently on the market unless you go the banana stand route. Should you go with this over a table top headset stand? Well it really depends on how much space you have. For me I have enough space to run a full stand in the office and my case, desk, and walls don’t have the best surface for mounting the iEAR. That said for LANs I will be packing the iEAR along with everything else because it will give me a good place to keep my headset in the small space that you get at LANs.
