EBA01

One of the downsides of computers moving out of bedrooms and offices is the need to use headphones to enjoy our own experience as much as possible without disturbing everyone else in the room. We all spend a lot of time making sure that our systems look as modern and sleek but headphones, with their array of cables, don't really fit in with this minimalist aesthetic. Certainly having them just laying on your desk or hooked over the corner of your monitor isn't quite the same.

To this end we welcome the Silverstone EBA01 headphone stand. In short it's a stand for your headphones.

There is a tiny bit of assembly necessary. The quality of the machining is exemplary with everything fitting absolutely perfectly. Two long screws through the heavy base affix the vertical arm to the bottom, and four small ones place the curves stand itself onto that.

With a weight of 1.3KG and just under 1KG of that being the base you can be certain that it will never tip over. The top has enough length to fit two headsets comfortably. With a gentle curve it also wont impact the comfort of the headband no matter how soft and squishy your choice of headset is.

As you can see even a decent sized pair of headphones barely takes up any room and, if the mood takes you, you can use it to look after your hat whilst you're gaming.

Possibly the simplest thing we've ever reviewed here at OC3D, the Silverstone EBA01 is a flawless.

Yes it's just a headphone stand, and your desire to show off your weapon of choice will largely determine if this is of interest to you. However, it would be easy to have made a hash of something like this, and with so few elements they would stand out like a sore thumb, but Silverstone have nailed it.

The base is very heavy so it's extremely stable even with two headsets in place. The whole thing has a gorgeous brushed aluminium finish that has the Apple Store aesthetic everyone craves and the build quality is bombproof. Yes it's a fair price for something with a single function, but considering the solidity of the product it has to win our OC3D Gold Award.
