Apple investigating AirPods explosion at a gym

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

Apple is investigating why one AirPod caught on fire in Florida

He removed both AirPods and left them on a piece of equipment as he went to seek help. When he came back, he saw the right airpod blown apart and charred.

Florida Man Jason Colon was using his wireless AirPods headphones at the gym when they reportedly malfunctioned. Apple's iPhones have been in the news for exploding every now and then around the world - majority have faulty batteries.

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.

"I don't know what would've happened to my ear", he said.

"It's the craziest thing I ever went through", Colon said. "I don't know what would've happened to my ear, you know?"

Dwyane Wade traded to Heat for 2nd-round pick
The Cavs are reportedly trading Dwyane Wade to Miami , reports ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski . He is averaging 11.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 23.2 minutes in 46 games in a reserve role.

Such reports have continued to plague Samsung, which first issued a voluntary recall of its Galaxy Note 7 phones because of a "battery issue" on September 2, offering to give replacement phones to customers who had bought the devices.

In this case, the man showed the AirPods to WFLA, a local TV news station, and the earphone in question appears to have some flame damage and does look severely mangled. "My ear lobes could've been burnt", he said.

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

It's not the first time a popular product has gone up in flames.

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.
