Apple’s AirPods have been a huge success for the company. It packs technology that only a few or no other manufacturer is providing. While they are pretty smart in terms of their usefulness and portability, what we heard today might raise some eyebrows. That’s right, a man in Florida has claimed that Apple’s AirPods ‘blew up’ on him at the LA Fitness gym while he was listening to dance music. Is this a coincidence? It could possibly be as Apple has said that it is investigating the claims made by the man. Scroll down for more details on AirPods blowing up on a Tampa gym-goer.
Tampa Man Says Apple AirPods Blew Up On Him
Jason Colon was the man who was listening to music at the gym when the incident occurred. he noticed that the right part of the set of AirPods started emitting white smoke. However, he did take them off and rested them on the gym equipment, something every wise man should do.
Later on, as he came back after getting some help, the right part of the set was almost non-existent as it had popped into many pieces. In a television interview, Colon stated that his right earlobe could have been burnt, which is true if he would have kept wearing it.
“It was already popped. I didn’t see it happen, but I mean, it was already fried. You can see flame damage,” he detailed to the television station. “I don’t know what would’ve happened to my ear. But I’m sure since it hangs down, it could’ve been [my] ear lobe. My ear lobes could’ve been burnt,”
We have not encountered any major blowing up of devices since the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, which was quite a loss for the company as well. In addition to this, an Apple product blowing up is definitely something that we don’t see every day. So it’s worth noting what could have possibly gone wrong. Check out the video for more in-depth details from Jason Colon himself.
In addition to this, Apple has suggested that it is investigating the claims of the Tampa gym guy. With that said, there will be certain details on the dilemma from Apple’s end.
