Elago M2 Mobile Stand
Elago makes some very nice iPhone cases that, sadly, don’t seem to be available in the UK just yet. So, in the meantime, I’ll settle for this neat little desktop stand instead. The M2 allows you to sit the iPhone either upright or on its side, so that you can quickly tap on the screen and make calls, or use other, landscape-oriented apps. The aluminum stand is available in black or silver, and is large enough to accommodate most of the bumper cases for the iPhone, so you can rest your iPhone on the stand and recharge it without having to remove the case.

Griffin Reveal Etch
Griffin makes a wide range of cases for the iPhone, but the Reveal is a good basic option. It’s similar to Apple’s own bumper, with a thin-but-sturdy rubber band that wraps around the edges and acts as a shock-absorber – as well as helping to eliminate any pesky antenna reception problems too. It also has a back-panel that provides a bit of extra protection, and comes in about £5 cheaper than the Apple offering if you miss the 30 September deadline for a free one.

Re: Senheiser glow-in-the-dark cans
It's not 10/10, it's simply number ten in the alphabetically arranged list.
Despite the brief mention of the bumper case at the beginning, I was surprised that it wasn't at the top of the list.
I can't think of anything more 'essential' than something that allows this phone to.....make phone calls!
hmm, none of these really seem "essential" to me. and that iluv cack has got to be the fugliest bit of kit i've ever seen.
but now i *want* a moshi moshi handset and those sennheiser cans... mmm, shiny...
Why is this an iPhone roundup?
Only 40% of the items (The first 4) are iPhone specific. Getting sick of most of the roundups being Apple-centric, and this one isn't even mainly iPhone-only items, yet it deserves an iPhone title?
Sort it the hell out. Don't you get it? Many of your readers HATE Apple products and to see such an amount of articles specifically aimed at them (Like the rest of the press seem to do) is annoying. I used to read El Reg specifically because it didn't fawn over anything Apple, but now if anything it seems worse than other sites / rags.
The single best peripheral
for an iphone, is a bin.
