This Self-Balancing Headphone Concept is Kind of Amazing

No matter how you spin it, headphones can be a nuisance when it comes to desktop organization. Despite the array of headphone storage options out there, it’s still all too common to just place them wherever is convenient on the desktop

But what if headphones could actually be a centerpiece of your desktop (after your workstation, that is)?

Designed by Korean industrial designer Kyumin Ha, the Gravity headphones are designed to stand upright without the support of a headphone stand when not in use. When worn by the user, their balance translates over to the user’s head for a comfortable and stylish music listening experience.

Says Ha:

“The position of existing headphones is to always be lying down on a surface. In order to increase the strong presence of the headphone design, balance weight supports the headphone to stand alone. We no longer need to get annoyed while searching a unnoticeable headphone or to get it to stand up. Now you rather just notice it in a flash, and pick it up at once whilst you go out.”

…interesting approach to a common problem.


While the headphones are still in a conceptual stage right now, executing the concept on a mass scale isn’t too far fetched of an idea.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a headphone storage solution, consider this free 3D printable desktop headphone stand from industrial designer Jackson Seidenberg.
