In the month of February, on a flight that left from Beijing, and direct to Melbourne, the woman was injured to the face after that its wireless headphones have literally exploded. We now know that it was Apple headphones.

According to investigators, the defective battery caused overheating and subsequent explosion of the wireless headset. This thesis has been confirmed by Apple, which, however, impute the problem to the use of batteries, third-party, non-official: “our investigations have indicated that the explosion was caused by a battery of third-party”. With regard to the model in question, you are very likely to Beats headphones.

In practice, the problem is not with the headset, but the battery and this will not be paid any compensation of any kind. The woman confirmed to have purchased the headphones in 2014 at a duty-free, while the AAA batteries were purchased in Australia, but now it says very disappointed by the response from Apple: “The headphones do not work without batteries, and Apple does not specify anywhere what brand to buy and use!“.

Remember that, when all this has happened, the woman was sleeping while listening to music with his headphones, and then at a certain point, she felt a strong explosion occurred after about 2 hours of flight time. The woman has immediately thrown to the ground in the headphones, which continued to burn until the intervention of the flight attendants who managed to quell the fire. The woman was wounded, with burns on the face and lips.
