Headphone hangar review: the Elevation Lab Anchor

Thursday, August 10th, 2017 | by

Anchor headphone hangarI stumbled across this headphone hanger on Amazon in June, and bought it on a whim. Now it’s my new favorite audio accessory.

Here’s the thing: my HD 650’s had been cluttering up my desk, or sitting on the floor nearby, for months. Best case, they’re getting dusty. Worse, they’re getting kicked and stepped on. My headphones deserve better, but my titanic mess in my office did not lend itself to proper headphone care.

Enter the “Anchor” headphone hangar, from Elevation Lab. It’s a hard rubber hangar with “ultra-secure” 3M-branded adhesive. Glue it under your desk: headphone storage problem solved.

My Anchor has been hanging since June, and remains very securely mounted. My headphones aren’t getting dusty any more. They’re not getting stepped on. I’m not tripping on the cord.

I have the headphones on one wing and the cable on the other, but I think you’d be able to store two pairs of headphones on a single hangar if you wish. Or get a second Anchor.

I paid full price for mine, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Kudos to Elevation Lab for making something that looks great, feels good, works as advertised, and is cheap enough to merit an impulse buy. Make more cool things for audio people, please.

    Hi, I had exactly the same problems with my headphones, but didn’t realise they sold hangers for them. My solution was to buy a ladies handbag hanger. It was £1.49 and works a treat.

    Thanks for the review. This is one of those gadgets you don’t realize you need until you see it. Now i’m thinking i must have. However, i would rather have a screw so i can remove it easily if i need to. Although wondering if i could put a 3M Command Strip under it. hmmm. wheels turning 🙂
