PDP announces new Rock Candy and Afterglow earbuds, gaming headsets

Accessory manufacturer PDP announced new additions to its Rock Candy and Afterglow product lines at CES today, in the form of earbuds and gaming headsets.

First up is the $39.99 Afterglow Wired On-Ear Gaming Headset (first image above), which comes with a removable noise-canceling microphone and interchangeable accoutrements: its headbands and ear cushions. The headset will be available in varieties for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this summer.

PDP also unveiled headphones, the Afterglow CE (second image above), which will be available in on-ear and in-ear versions. The regular CE will work with any mobile device, but PDP will also release one designed specifically for iOS devices with LED lighting, glow-in-the-dark cables, in-line volume controls and a microphone. PDP will begin selling the CE this summer, and has not yet announced a price.

The company's colorful line of Rock Candy products will be augmented with earbuds this summer, in numerous colors including blue, pink, green and yellow. PDP's Rock Candy Ear Buds (white images above) will sell for $14.99.
