Review + Give Away: Native Union Moshi Moshi Retro POP Handset for iPhone

Here it is, the Native Union Moshi Moshi Retro POP Handset for iPhone! In case it isn't completely obvious by the video up top or the picture below, the POP is a really cool, really retro receiver that plugs right into the iPhone's -- or any device's -- 3.5 mm headphone jack.

You can not only take and make calls with them at the press of a button, but you can activate Siri and VoiceControl as well, and even listen to music, all while tucking Ma Bell's classic phone easily under your chin and against your ear. While black has that Matrix-chic about it, the Native Union Moshi Moshi Retro POP Handset for iPhone comes in a ton of of colors, even camo, so you can find just the perfect one for you.

Sure, walking around with a giant receiver on your hip like you're a gunslinger from the age of telephone's past might seem a little out of the ordinary, but when has ordinary ever been fun?

I absolutely love the Native Union Moshi Moshi Retro POP Handset for iPhone, and they were kind enough to send over a couple for me to try out, I want to share that love with a giveaway! If you want to win a Pop Phone for iPhone of your very own, just leave a comment below telling me what you like about them. If you get picked, I'll box up one of the review units and send it your way (it's still in perfect condition).

So what are you waiting for? Leave a comment already before Agent Smith swings that truck around again!

Review + Give Away: Native Union Moshi Moshi Retro POP Handset for iPhone

85 Comments

This accessory is probably the niftiest thing I have ever seen. I absolutely adore the throwback look of the receiver and would most definitely walk around with this on my side.
I would get a laugh off of the strange looks that I would get.. I would also use this with the classic phone ring tone! Brilliant!
This livened up my day for sure, thanks, TiPb!

Omg I have been waiting on this to come out. I've been wanting one since Georgia showed it on iPhone live. I think walking around with one of these would be so much more awesome than a Bluetooth or even a standard wired headphones. I can only imagine the looks I would get. I also am bluetoothed out. I'm tired of them. They die, they are uncomfortable on your ear and a lot of times especially as the batteries start to die

This would be awesome to use instead of the annoying apple headphones. Plus it would be funny to have a cord phone coming out of my pocket.

Besides the long name ("Native Union Moshi Moshi Retro POP Handset for iPhone") I love the idea of talking on the phone without my face and ear getting warm! I love my iPhone 4S but woah, I'll tell ya- after a while it feels like I can fry some tiny little eggs on the glass back!
Mmmm... tiny little eggs. Gotta rustle up some tiny bacon to go with them.

one of the sweetest things i've ever seen! Love the fact that I can lay on my futon and relax while having a conersation without my cell phone over-heating on my face.

Aloha,
I like the fact that the reviews on Amazon are highly positive and that the sound is better and you don't have a hot phone to touch and radiation by your head. I would definitely use this at home! Thanks for the opportunity to try one myself!

I love how the POP phone lets me rest the handset between my neck and my shoulder so that I can work hands-free. It will also give me the crick in the neck that I never thought I'd miss. Can't do that with any cell phones today.

What I like about this is not only does it say that you appreciate the functionality of old school ergonomics interfaces, but that you know how to draw attention to yourself with the juxtaposition of the leading chic tech and the retro kitch.

If I had the pop retro I could talk on my iPhone at work and none of the customers would know I was on my cell!! I need one!

Retro style! I just want to see the faces when walking down the street with the headset, and that now you hear on a busy place while doing a facetime call adn looking cool!

If I give my wife one of these 'bad boys', she may think she's on a land line. Then, I can get rid of the house phone and be fully mobile... Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

That would be the most stupendously awesome thing to have ever! My iPhone has a broken earpiece, so I have to use it on speaker. This would make life so much better, not to mention that the old receivers were always waaay more comfortable to use than today's phones.

I would jusT love to show my 3 year old what daddy used to use when he was his age! Oh and be "that guy"

I want to get one of these handsets for my parents. They are full time RVer's and only have cellphone but they are older and would definitely appreciate being able to have a handset they can prop on their shoulder and talk for awhile

I would live to have the retro handset for several reasons, but the main reason it to use it while driving to have a cop pull me over. The look on their face will be priceless!

I stumbled upon this handset online 3 weeks ago and thought it’ll be great birthday gift for my sister come mid-December. Send me a WHITE please. Hmmmm….. come to think of it…… it’ll be great if I can get another as an advanced birthday gift for my brother too. Send me a PURPLE one for him. Wait! Throw another one in for me. My birthday’s in between. I can’t decide if I should go YELLOW, ORANGE or GREEN though.

Thank you ;oD

I really would like one since I am a single dad with two kids hanging all over me Ivan always use some help and hands free, and especially all the free stuff! I love your show and i listen to you every night so I am a true fan! I am a new tech geek but I learn from iPad live and iPhone live podcasts on stitcher ! Chose me please for all those great giveaways I can use it so much!!

will use it to crack the shells
of those delicious chilli crabs and black pepper crabs in singapore!!
pls send me handset.thank you!!

WOW ! My daughter said I couldn't work an i phone, the cheek of youth ! !
I proved her WRONG. . .a new piece of kit would complete the humble pie she needs to eat :)

An absolute MUST HAVE to go along with the rotary dialer app we have on our iphones. One way or the other, this will be under the tree this year. Awesome!

Must have!!! Not only will I be oh-so-hip in that "special" retro way only a true child of the 80s is capable of, but maybe, just maybe, if I use one of these instead of holding my death-trap of a cell-phone to my head, my dear mother will stop hounding me about the "harmful effects" of said cell phone usage... For the record, I still get urgent phone calls every time peanut butter, ground beef, green onions, or Tonka trucks are recalled just in case I hadn't heard...a girl can only take so much over-protection. :)

Great idea getting back to the retro phone design. You can leave the cell phone on the desk or pocket and have a call the old fashion way. Nice gift idea also for the Holidays.

This would be a great tool whether I'm in my office or on the road. And my co-workers would be sooooo jealous. That look so cool!

Would love to try one of these for my 89 year old Dad who is a Bell Telephone retiree (worked 40 years). He is very frustrated with cell phones & can't hold them to his ear anymore. His cell is an old Motorola Flip Phone (10 years old or so) and I'm not sure if your handset would be compatible. His cell is our lifeline as he is in a nursing home now & we are thousands of miles apart. If this would work, it would be an answer to keeping us connected. Please let me know! Thank you so much!

My first reaction when I saw the Moshi handset was that is was a cool novelty that I wanted to get a few laughs from friends. But as I used it on my iPhone 5, I noticed an immediate improvement in reception and call/voice quality. Folks I spoke with also said that my voice sounded much clearer compared with my Bluetooth headset or even when I'm not using any headset at all.. I bought my handset from: http://www.podpad.no I plan to purchase more for holiday gifts. These handsets are the perfect gifts for friends and relatives who have everything.
