Among accessories maker Satechi’s new products showing at CES 2022 is the new 2-in-1 Headphone Stand with Wireless Charger designed for AirPods Max, rolled out Thursday.

While a sleek, stainless steel arm suspends your headphones, the base charges your iPhone or other Qi-enabled device and provides a USB-C port to power up the headphones, too.

Satechi’s new stand: Any headphones will do

Satechi’s marketing department aims the new 2-in-1 Headphone Stand with Wireless Charger at AirPods Max owners, but it will fit many, if not most, headphones on its upper arm. Simply hang them by the band on the stainless steel arm with padded grips to keep headphones and cable from cluttering up your desk.

Charging options

Aside from being a handsome hangout for headphones when you’re not using them, Satechi’s new stand offers multiple charging options.

The stand features an aluminum base that serves as a Qi charging pad. It can power iPhone, AirPods, AirPods Pro or any other Qi-enabled device at 7.5W.

And you can use a USB-C port in the base with a USB-C to Lightning cable to charge your AirPods Max.

Cable management

Another nifty feature of the stand is the built-in cable management hook, which helps you keep cables wrapped up and tidy.

The space gray-colored base — common in Satechi wares — should complement many computer setups, workstations or bedside tables.

The charging stand requires a 20W power adapter, sold separately.

Unlike many newly announced products at CES 2022, you can get the Satechi 2-in-1 Headphone Stand with Wireless Charger today. And  you can take 20% off the regular price with the checkout code CES20 until January 13.

Price: $79.99
