Below are the top accessories available for iPhone 4S:

They have volume control buttons and a mic on the wire so that you can also use them for making calls.

The way they are designed ensures that you don’t even have to remove the case of your iPhone when using with this docking speaker.
Griffin AirCurve Play– (US$ 19.99)
The speakers onboard the new iPhone 4S are good but not loud enough. The AirCurve Play from Griffin will be handy when you need louder sound but don’t have access to high power speakers. The coiled waveguide from Griffin amplifies the sound from iPhone’s speakers. The AirCurve Play’s stand can hold iPhone in portrait or landscape mode and has cutouts which make it easy for you to reach the charging port and buttons on the edges.

The iPhone SLR mount allows attaching high quality lenses to your iPhone. This accessory allows to turn the camera on your iPhone into a serious image capturing device. Using this accessory, you can attach lenses like the Canon EOS or Nikon’s Nikkor to your iPhone.
Before you buy any of those accessories, remember that there are multiple models available for some of them. Check whether the model you are buying is compatible with iPhone 4S or not. In general many accessories designed for iPhone 4 can also be used for iPhone 4S, but the ones designed for iPhone 3GS are not compatible with iPhone 4S.
