Have you ever finished up a gaming session and took off your headset only to realize you didn't really have anywhere to put it? Sure you could just lay it on your desk but then it might be in the way. You can set it on top of your case - but depending on your case's top panel that may not be possible. Well our friends over at In-Win have just the solution - the iEarHeadset Holder. In-Win was kind enough to send one out to us to check out so let's do it!

The In-Win iEar comes in a anice formed plastic case with a color cardboard backing plate. The prodocut is easily visible which is nice.
The back of the cardboard insert has features and useage instructions as well as a tag that states it has a maximum holding capacity of 1500 grams wich is about 3.3 pounds.
The iEar comes out of the package almost ready to be installed. It's in the "open" position out of the package. The iEar comes in black or white. The black version has a red In-Win logo.
The business side of the iEar comes with a protective plastic sheet covering the suction cup.
The film comes off easily to reveal a slightly sticky suction cup. The point is so you know which way is up for ease of installation.
Here's what the suction cup looks like when the unit is mounted. You simply turn the front of the mount counter clockwise to lock to unit into place.
Looking at the side of the iEar you'll see the contoured shape allowing you to set your headset and be confident it's not going anywhere.
Here I've installed the iEar to the side of an NZXT Phantom 410 case. To install the iEar you stick it where you want it (this is where the sticky suction cup comes in handy) then you simply twist the outer part counter-clockwise to lock it into place and that's it.
Here I have my Plantronics GameCom 780 headset sitting on the In-Win iEar. It fits nicely and looks great too.
Overall I think the InWin iEar is great. It's inexpensive at only $15 (MSRP), comes in both black and white to fit most builds, looks great and most importantly works. The only problem is that I can't currently find the iEar for sale anywhere at the time of this writing. Hopefully it'll be available soon because I see this being a great product.
