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

Colon chose to leave it on a piece of workout equipment and seek help, but when he returned, the earphone apparently was good as gone.

The right is blown apart and charred.

The incident happened earlier this week when Jason Colon was working out at a local LA Fitness club in St. Petersburg, Fla.

"This looks like this was the battery", Colon said when explaining the malfunction to 8 On Your Side.

Colon immediately removed the AirPods, and after a while, he observed that the earbud was starting to melt. "I don't know what would've happened to my ear, but I'm sure since it hangs down, it could've been [my] earlobe". White smoke started to come out of the device. "It was already popped", said Colon. I didn't see it happen, but I mean, it was already fried.

Apple's AirPods are a one of a kind device, featuring advanced technology that no other company is now offering. Such as the Beats headphones that exploded in flight burning a woman's ears, or the ubiquitous Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that was prone to enough fiery incidents that it caused a series of nightmares for the company.

They're not flawless, but for a first generation product, they're pretty good. Apple says that it is investigating the claims made by the man. However, this is the very first time that we have reported the AirPods blowing up.

Unlike wired ear-pods that get power through the headphone jack, Apple's AirPods use a small rechargeable battery embedded into the earbud itself.
