Here’s a fun little chart from NPD on the most popular mobile phone accessories.

When people buy mobile phones, the number one accessory, on a dollar share basis is a case. Not far behind in sales are top of the line headphones. After that comes come hands free headsets. 

Cases makes sense. But headphones are bit of a stunner since most high end phones include headphones. Part of the reason for its high share is that headphones are just so expensive.
