New Bee Wireless Charging Headphone stand

New Bee are well known for their budget but good quality headphones and I guess this new stand is designed to complement them.

In the attractive mid-market product box was the headphone stand supplied as a click together base, upright, and headphone support, together with a good quality USB to micro-USB charging cable and a well written but rather small User Guide. I include a scan of the User Guide at the end of my unboxing video.

Assembling the stand is simple and obvious and once assembled the aluminium alloy stand is reasonably robust and stable with four non-slip grips on the base. At the rear of the base is the single micro-USB power in port. Annoyingly there is no USB output port to charge standard devices. There is an indicator on the stand where to position the phone and although a similar logo is on the headphone support there is no charging coil there.

Once connected up to charge your phone or another device – I found the stand can also charge my Moto 360V2 watch perfectly well, just place it on the indicated charging panel on the base. I suspect this device has a single charging coil inside and so correct positioning is important and at first, it may take a time to find the sweet spot. The bright LED indicator on the base will change from red to blue when charging and switch off when charging is complete. Charging is reasonably fast and comparable to other wireless chargers which means it is far slower than with a normal cable connected charger.

Aside from the charging feature, probably the main reason to buy this device, it is a perfectly decent headphone stand and can serve this purpose just as well as any other in the budget price range. This brings us to the next selling point of the device, the price. Currently discounted from £21.99 to just £14.99 this represents a very good buy indeed.
