Florida man says Apple AirPods blew up while he was working out

Apple is investigating why one AirPod caught on fire in Florida

Apple AirPods 'blew up' in man's ear while he was working out at the gym

It's certainly the first time we've heard an instance of the AirPods exploding.

Apple's AirPods are a one of a kind device, featuring advanced technology that no other company is now offering.

Modi embarks on 4-day West Asia visit
Modi said he had assured Abbas that New Delhi was bound by a promise to take care of the interests of the Palestinian people. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called the India-Israeli partnership "a marriage made in heaven".

Mr Colon says he believes the gadget's battery was responsible for the damage.

When he returned, the dodgy AirPod was already charred and destroyed, showing signs of flame damage. Colon told WFLA he was jamming out to a dance mix when white smoke started to billow out from the right pod's chassis.

Jason Colon was exercising at LA Fitness in Tampa, Florida, when he noticed smoke coming out of his headphones. "It was already popped", said Colon. I didn't see it happen, but I mean, it was already fried!

Trump frustrated with Hope Hicks's role in Porter scandal
Willoughby was also "worried" about Hope Hicks, the White House communications director and Porter's current partner. Meanwhile, a photo of Holderness, with a black eye she says she got when Porter hit her, has been circulated.

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. "But I'm sure that since it hangs down, it could've been my ear lobe, you know, my ear lobe could've been burnt".

In 2016, South Korean manufacturer Samsung's flagship Galaxy Note 7 was hit by a spate of exploding batteries. When he got back, he found that the right AirPod was wrecked.

Meanwhile, an Apple spokesperson told media that they are investigating the matter and will reach out to Colan to figure out exactly what happened to the wearable.
