Apple Investigating Claims Of AirPods Headphones Exploding

Apple investigating claim that Air Pods started smoking & burst open

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. Meanwhile, an Apple spokeswomen told a local Tampa television station that it will talk to Colon while it investigates what caused its wearable product to catch on fire. "I saw white smoke start billowing out", he said. James Colon quickly took the time bomb out of his ear, placed it on some workout equipment, and went to look for help. The earbud was blown into pieces and charred. It was already popped. As for now, what are your thoughts on the AirPods blowing up on a Florida man?

"I didn't see it happen, but I mean, it was already fried". Colon was obviously thankful that he had removed the right AirPod before it exploded. "But I'm sure my earlobe could've been burnt".

The unfortunate truth is that gadgets powered by lithium-ion batteries-almost every device made in the last decade-can explode under certain conditions.

While this seems to be the direction of speculation, Nintendo hasn't definitively set the value of a single Gold Coin. Nintendo says more details are on the way, and once they're announced we'll be sure to present an update as well.


Colon thinks it was faulty battery.

While we have experienced many situations where devices such as smartphones would blow up, the majority of them were the Galaxy Note 7 devices.

Worth pointing out is that while the inherent incident is likely to raise serious questions about AirPod safety, it's only the first of such incidents to affect AirPods - and we now have no reason to believe there's a broader, software, hardware or technical-related issue afoot. Apple has reportedly reached out to Colon to figure out what happened and will likely issue a public statement in the not-too-distant future.
