Candy Comfort Earphones are comfy and kitschy

The Candy Comfort Earphones are a fun replacement for stock earbuds that offer a reasonable upgrade in fit and comfort, but don't expect good sound quality.

Kitschy tech is entirely too rare on CNET, which is why we couldn't resist the Candy Comfort Earphones. These funky earbuds are decked out in candy branding and fittingly shaped like M&Ms, although that particular treat is glaringly absent from the lineup.

These 'phones may not be the best-sounding or most fully featured on the market, but the fun design is sure to appeal to some. Plus, they're more comfortable than the stock set that came with your player. At $20 a pop, the Candy Comfort Earphones aren't going to break the bank, but given the lackluster sound and dearth of eartips, we'd prefer a slightly lower price point.
