Candy's Headphones from Donkey Kong 64.
First appearance Donkey Kong 64 (1999)

“Its sound wave blast will deafen most Kremlings, but will also reduce the instrument's energy. Top up its energy by finding some headphones.”
Candy Kong, Donkey Kong 64

Candy's Headphones[1], or simply Headphones[2][3], are blue headphone objects that appear in Donkey Kong 64. If a Kong walks into one of Candy's Headphones, their instrument's energy gets fully restored. Candy's Headphones are an alternative for the Kongs over visiting Candy's Music Shop, where Candy Kong refills their supply if they are low. Candy's Headphones only begin to appear in the levels after a Kong has purchased their musical instrument from Candy's Music Shop. Candy's Headphones have unlimited use, meaning that the Kongs can walk into them as many times as needed.

Candy's Headphones appear in most levels, usually in one with a Music Pad. Jungle Japes and Hideout Helm are the only two levels without any of Candy's Headphones. Fungi Forest has the distinction of being the only level that has Candy's Headphones but not Candy's Music Shop.
