The original under desk headphone mount
Get rid of cord clutter on your desk and have easy access to your headphones with the Anchor.
Mounts in seconds and holds ultra-strong with the same adhesive GoPro uses.
Flexible silicone construction protects your headphones and won't hurt if you ever bump it with you knee.
If you ever need to remove the Anchor and it is holding too strong - just heat it up with a hair dryer and the adhesion will soften.
The 3M VHB (Very High Bond) adhesive will hold with over 40 pounds of adhesion to clean and finished surfaces.
Important: It will not hold to unfinished wood, bare mdf, or if the surface feels fibrous. If the bottom of your desk isn't finished, we recommend either putting some finish on (polyurethane works well) or screwing it in.
Make sure the surface is clean, dry, and oil free.
Firmly press the Anchor to your desk for the best adhesion.
It takes 24 hours for the adhesive to fully cure to max strength.
The Anchor, like all our products, is guaranteed for life to be defect-free. If you have any issues, please contact us so we can make it right.

The Anchor is high quality ... it looks like it will be around for a good long time. The material is soft and flexible ... so gentle on the headphones. The anchoring tape is really strong ... it appears that it will stay put as long as I want it there.
This is a very useful item ... really nice to get the headphones off of the desk! It would be perfect if you have a large desk with room to hang a set or two of headphones beneath the desktop ... but even without that space I find The Anchor a good place to park my headphones on the side of my desk.
Before installing the under-desk headphone mount I cleaned the location it was going with an alcoholic wipe and then followed up with a microfiber cloth. I carefully and firmly placed the product on the location and held it for approximately 4 minutes. I then left the mount alone for 72 hours to make sure the glue or adhesive had enough time to cure (if curing was even necessary I am unsure). I was then pleasantly surprised that it held both my headphones comfortably for almost 2 months.
Today though I came home to both myheadphones laying on the hard wood floor. My Sonys have a slight fracture along the outer ring from what I assume was the headphone hitting the floor. What has pushed this product to hate though is the fact that my AKG 701s no longer produce sound out of the left ear cup. I learned my lesson, dont trust cheap adhesives with multiple hundreds of dollars in headphones, but I just figured it was a simple product with one job and that it would do that job if properly installed. Really annoyed that I was foolish enough to trust this thing. Would not purchase again, back to the desk stand headphone holder.
Cons: mine used pre-installed 3M VHB tape, which may or may not prove a problem in the long term.
Be sure to prep your surface correctly (clean with Isopropyl alcohol and a dust free towel; let it thoroughly evaporate); some surfaces may need to be scored with a fine sandpaper cleaning; then clean again with Isopropyl alcohol after scoring. A light pressure needs to be applied for a good amount of time in order to allow the 3M VHB tape to bond with the surface it's being mounted on. I used wood clamps to adhere mine for about an hour or so. See photos.
I have two pairs of over-ear headphones on it (One for gaming, one for movies/tv shows), and this thing does not budge. I wasn't even able to get the tape to fit completely where it is placed (there's about 20% of it hanging off the edge of my desk) and it doesn't wiggle, doesn't peel or anything. The Anchor itself is made out of a tough but flexible plastic, and even with two cats constantly playing with it it refuses to fall down. It's placed basically right next to my computer chair and I bump it constantly - but it does not fall off. Can't recommend it enough.
There have been some reviews on here where the adhesive failed to hold. There may be a lot of factors to cause that to happen, the surface was not quite suitable, for example, or the sticky surface was not held in place for adequate amount of time for secure attachment. I have two of these and both have been solidly staying put, and they do not seem to want to drop off.
For best results, make sure the surface where the hook will attach to is hard, flat, and clean. Before you take the cover off the 3M sticky, mark exactly where it will go with a pencil or marker. Take the cover off of the sticky, then put it under a lighter flame for a few seconds until the adhesive is nicely soft and sticky. Then the most important thing to do is to stick it on the surface and push against it with all your might for about 30 - 60 seconds. After that push on the surface of the hook mount forcefully with your thumb. Think of the adhesion as glue, you must hold it in place for it to get a good, strong bond.
If all else fails, or if it eventually falls off for whatever reason, there is always the trusty wood screw option. The product has a hole on each side of the base to allow for screw attachment. The screws are not included, so a trip to Home Depot may be necessary.
As others have noted, the ability to stick The Anchor to many surfaces allows it to be used under, or on the side of a desk.
I am impressed with the quality of the silicone, it is stiff but very slightly springy, it allows some bending to put on or remove the headphone without any risk of dropping them.
The size of the hanger is just right for my needs, low enough to use without too much fiddling, but high enough to conserve some space. The width should also be sufficient to allow any 2 headphones to hang together.
For reference, I am using a single AKG K7XX (very large diameter earcup) and if I wanted to hang another headphone, I certainly could.
All in all, I have no complaints, this is a high-quality product at a great price.

What is great:
1) The Anchor Pro is strong and easily holds my HyperX Cloud II headset along with my Plantronic headset I occasionally have on my desk if I am working from home.
2) The velcro cable management on the unit works well. It allows me to have enough slack to reach from the hook to my head without feeling restrictive and also works well in conjunction with the included plastic clips to keep the rest of the cable out of sight on its way to the device it needs to plug in to.
3) Every time I remove the headset from the Anchor Pro and put it back on the hook again, I get the most satisfying feeling (and a grin on my face) as its just so nifty!
What could be improved:
1) The box contains two small plastic clips to assist with cable management. As you can see from the first two pictures, including a third clip would be ideal as in my case I needed to secure the droop in the cable between the two clips.
2) The small white adhesive stickers that come pre-attached to the clips are quite weak and are not up to the same standard as the 3M VHB adhesive pad that is used for the Anchor Pro itself. As a result, after a few days, both clips detached from the underside of my desk. I wiped the area clean with isopropyl alcohol and stuck them on again (leaving them for 24 hours again before putting the cable back in) but once again they came off after a few days.
Why I have given 5 stars:
In light of the above, I contacted their customer service team who promptly sent me not only a bunch of replacement plastic clips but also a couple of spare 3M VHB pads which I then cut to size with scissors and fitted on to the clips. I once again left these for nearly two days to get the most out of the curing period and this time was able to use 3 clips. As per the third picture, these have now been in place for some time and have not budged an inch so I cannot fault their customer service for shipping these all the way from the US to the UK. Fantastic customer service!
Do not hesitate to buy the product and support these guys. Depending on the length of cable on your headset and how you will be positioning the cable management clips, consider using better adhesive for the clips if possible! The pack comes with a spare 3M VHB for the Anchor Pro so you could cut this into two and use this for the clips if you wanted! (I wanted to keep this as a spare).
The silicone construction was much stronger than I expected it to be, made of very thick material. Initially, I thought this would feel more tacky, like rubber, but this is not the case; it has a very smooth feel, without feeling slick or oily. There is a line down the middle of the product formed from the production process, but this is almost unnoticeable, and does not detract from the product's use in any way.
The 3M adhesive used is very strong; after having pressed it down and held it in place, i found it near impossible to remove without stripping part of my desk's wooden finish.
While my headphones are on it, it does sag a little, though this is likely because i do not have a counterweight on the other side. It does not feel weak, or like it is about to break.
I have only owned this product for a week, so I cannot say about the long-term durability: however, it feels as though it will last a long time.
After almost 3 years of daily use this thing is still in place and looks as good as new (though it's hidden under my desk). I'm buying another for a new desk.

Original review from 2015 below
My desk is full. Literally. I'd resorted to hanging my headphones off the arm of my office chair but this stops the chair being pushed under the desk or they tend to fall off. This little device was in one of the lightning sales so I thought I'd try it out.
It has a soft, rubberised finish. It's also surprisingly large, able to accommodate two headphones, and with a bead band of up to (approx) 1.25 inches.
The sticky pad is apparently the same one as they use on the go-pro camera pads, and is made by 3m. It's not moved at all since I fitted it under my desk. Just remember to leave yourself enough clearance so you can fit and remove the earphones from the anchor, or not bang then with your legs. Solves a very first-world problem but dies so in a neat and seemingly reliable way.
My main bone of contention is the price. This should really be a £4.99 item, and i think I paid 7.50 in the sale. However if you need somewhere to hang your headphones this is a useful add-on to your desk.
Bought this, when a hook under the desk would suffice!
Looks beautiful - but you can't see it!
Would be great under a shelf that was on view.
Comes well packaged and boxed, with good instructions and a wipe to clear the area you are sticking it to - remember to use it!
The rubber is very flexible and has a premuium soft feel to it. (No need to worry banging it with your knee or something)
Holds my Razer krakens and bang & Olufsen headphones perfectly even with space for my wireless earbuds!
They do hold great with the pre applied sticky pad but for extra safety I added some cable ties for peace of mind. (Doesn't look great but I will be changing them for back ties later on)
It is made from a smooth, slightly flexible rubber/silicon. This give it a great feel, you will be grateful for the flex when you hit your head on it under the desk.
The surface that attaches to the desk has 3M adhesive on it (the stuff used to mount Gopro cameras). It has been under my desk for 7months now and has shown no sign of coming off. But if you are concerned about your expensive headphones hitting the floor, there are two small holes which you could mount screws.
No cable management
Only slots for 2 sets
