Luxa² E-One Headset Holder Review
Most PC gamers and enthusiasts use expensive headsets for pristine audio quality and clarity and are often plagued by an annoying and possibly costly nuisance, there is nowhere to properly place a headset and Luxa² has found a solution to that problem. The E-One is an elegant, well built, sturdy aluminum headset holder that is capable of holding any and all headsets. With the E-One headset holder, Luxa² saved gamers and desktop users from having to hang an expensive headset on your monitor or simply leaving it on a desk where it can get scratched and possibly fall.

The E-One headset holder appeals to the minimalist desktop user that enjoys clean and good looking workspaces.

Unboxing and Closer Look
Included in the box is simply a Luxa² product guide, protective plastic and of course the E-One headset stand. Can’t ask too much much from a non electronic accessory. The first impression I had is how heavy and well made the E-One is, the metal shines beautifully with its brushed aluminium.
Upon closer I can quickly tell that there was some serious detail and work to make this product as attractive as possible. Everything from the base with the shiny “diamond cut” edge to the angle at which it stands simply screams elegance and luxury. The top of the stand has added rubber to aid in grip and protect headset head cushions and even has a ridge for the grip so doesn’t slip out after use. There are no big logos or decals to take away from its beauty, the E-One is simply designed to sit on your desk and look good.
The E-One’s height of 310 mm is enough to handle my oversized headset with ease and I highly doubt that there are many headsets in the market that exceed that size. Considerable downward pressure had to be placed at the highest tip of the stand to cause it to fall forward and although somewhat flexible due to the aluminium there is absolutely no way the metal would bend due to any weight from a headset unless done on purpose.
Like a car, the E-One is made out of aluminium that can chip or scratch, thankfully Luxa² had added durable rubber grip to keep the E-One from moving around and possibly falling off your desk taking your precious headset with it. The E-One is not easy to move once placed on a surface such as wood but a permanent solution for placement would have been welcomed.
Another great product from Luxa² and Thermaltake, the E-One headset holder fulfills its headset holding task superbly and looks great in the process. I found no flaws with the E-One and would recommend it for anyone looking to save their headset from further damage. The matter of price does come into play, $40 for an item that fulfills a single task is quite the premium but Luxa² does offer one amazing luxury headset holder.
