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.

A man from Tampa, Florida, offers a story of smartphone accessories that might worry some.

A man's AirPods exploded while he was at the gym YouTube/News Channel 8 A man's AirPods have exploded while he was at the gym. When listening to a song through his AirPods, he noticed what appeared to be smoke emanating from one of them. It was coming from the area of his right ear. He immediately took both AirPods out and placed them on a piece of gym equipment while he sought help, but when he returned, the AirPod in question was charred and broken apart. However, not the man, or anyone else, was present to see the actual pop or explosion of the small device so we can not yet be certain as to what may have actually happened. "You can see flame damage", Colon said.

The usual procedure, however, is for Cupertino to examine any device that might have suffered a unsafe malfunction. In that case, the bureau believed the battery was to blame.

There are, of course, small batteries inside AirPods. Even Colon acknowledges he's not sure what happened. Colon said other users should be careful with the AirPods, saying "Just because it happens to me doesn't mean it won't happen again". But I'm sure since it hangs down, it could've been earlobe.
