Getting on trend with PopSockets, the ‘must-have’ mobile phone accessory phenomenon

By March 21, 2018June 15th, 2020No Comments

There is a very good chance that you have either seen or heard about one of the largest mobile phone accessory fashion trends to date – PopSockets Grip! These mobile phone accessories have taken the world by storm, and are spotted all over social media, thanks to celebrities like Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Jared Leto, Gigi Hadid, Serena Williams, Ryan Seacrest and Michael Phelps (to name a few).

PopSockets Grips are extremely comfortable to hold, even for long periods of time, due to the unique design and choice of materials used. This really has helped PopSockets Grips to stand out and rise above the competition.

PopSockets are the brainchild of former philosophy professor David Barnett, who was struggling to keep his earbuds from getting tangled up. It was through his process of creating something to keep his earbuds tangle-free, that the PopSockets Grip were invented. Three Years of relentless designing later and the official PopSockets grip was born! Soon after, these fashionable mobile phone accessories were available in retail stores throughout the U.S, and seen on the mobile phones of different demographic groups, including:

  • Children – to help them hold mobile phones and devices that were too large or uncomfortable for their hands
  • Teens and Millennials – to aid with taking selfies, looking cool keeping up with the latest trend and expressing their individual personalities (their likes, different styles and what they stand for) through the many different PopSockets Grip designs available
  • The elderly – who are struggling to grip their mobile phones and tablets now have an improved grip and less pain holding their devices

PopSockets have become known known as ‘little life changers’ and for good reason!

In their first year, PopSockets sold 30,000 units in the U.S. Last year (2017), they had sold 35 million PopSockets across 40 countries! That is phenomenal growth in just a few years, and they have no plans of slowing down.
