Apple says it is investigating claims that its AirPods ‘blew up’ in a Florida man’s ear while he was working out at the gym


Apple's AirPods may be at risk of exploding, if one Florida man's experiences are anything to go by.
According to the gym-goer, he was working out when the wireless headphones began smoking.
Apple says it is investigating the claims, which could have resulted in serious burns had the man not quickly removed the allegedly faulty gadget.

Jason Colon, from Tampa, ran to get help after he noticed the white smoke billowing from the device.
When he came back, he found that the right ear bud had exploded, with the case showing signs of charring and the internal components laid bare.
Mr Colon says he believes the gadget's battery was responsible for the damage.
Speaking to local news station News Channel Eight, he added: 'It’s the craziest thing I ever went through.
'I didn't see it happen, but I mean, it was already fried! You can see flame damage.

'I don’t know what would’ve happened to my ear but I’m sure since it hangs down, [my] ear lobe could’ve been burnt.'
An Apple spokeswoman told the news station that the firm is investigating the claims.
This is not the first time that a popular electronic product has hit the headlines for exploding.

In 2016, South Korean manufacturer Samsung's flagship Galaxy Note 7 was hit by a spate of exploding batteries.
Samsung blamed two separate issues for numerous fires in the tablet smarphone hybrid.
The first was that the battery components in the Galaxy Note 7 did not fit in the battery's casing.
This caused the battery cell's upper right corner to be crimped by the casing.
The second affected the devices sent to replace the original faulty phones.
These were caused by manufacturing issues, including poor welding at the battery manufacturer.

We've always been largely unimpressed with the quality of Apple's EarPods headphones, and were hoping to see a dramatic improvement in their standard following Apple's acquisition of Beats in 2014.
As a result, we are relieved the new lightning EarPods are so much better than their predecessors.
With the AirPods, Apple has created a bold new kind of wireless headphone, removing the annoyances of struggling to pair and remembering to turn them off to avoid battery drain.
They're surprisingly good at staying put within your ear, and the battery life is commendable.

Again, the price is steep enough to put some people off, but we would argue $159 (£159) is not entirely unreasonable for high quality wireless headphones - AirPods are roughly in line with their rivals.
The likelihood of losing them is real, but this fault lies in the hands of the consumer, rather than the manufacturer.
We would, however, welcome a set of small buttons on one or both of the AirPods' stems to skip or replay tracks and change the volume while exercising, as Siri voice commands are just not suitable during exercise.
Overall, the audio standard and brilliant pairing and charging technologies make AirPods an attractive prospect for Apple fans looking to invest in new wireless headphones for use across the entire product range.
They're not perfect, but for a first generation product, they're pretty good.
