Man says his Apple airpods exploded into flames

While it's only one set in millions sold, it's going to get headlines just because it's an Apple product.

A Florida man claims one of his Apple AirPods blew up as he worked out at the gym. So let's dive in to see some more details on the scenario and what does Apple have to say on the issue.

NBC News reported yesterday that "Jason Colon, of Tampa, was listening to a dance mix at the LA Fitness on 4th Street in St. Petersburg when he noticed something odd".

He left the AirPods on a piece of workout equipment and got help. However, not the man, or anyone else, was present to see the actual pop or explosion of the small device so we can not yet be certain as to what may have actually happened. "It was already popped", said Colon. You can see flame damage.

"I don't know what would've happened to my ear", he said. "Earlobe could've been burnt". "However, because our customers' safety is an absolute priority at Samsung, we have stopped sales of the Galaxy Note 7". However, this is still the first report of such an incident happening to a pair of AirPods and might only be a once-off incident. So should you guys be anxious if you own Apple's AirPods?

Copeland had been paining over his decision, tweeting just before midnight Tuesday that he cried all night thinking about it. Dorian Gerald , the nation's No. 1-ranked JUCO defensive end, could be a late addition to the class.

An Apple spokesperson told the television station it takes the claim seriously and will investigate. It is being further reported that the Air-pods began smoking while the user was working out and listening to some music.

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.

Further reports from 9to5 suggests that the user whose name is James Colon made a comment that "It was already like this".
