Apple AirPods Pro ruptured a 12-year-old boy’s eardrums, leaving him disabled. The company was sued

Apple is facing legal action over AirPods.

According to sources, the company was sued due to the fact that a 12-year-old child was injured due to the use of Apple headphones. One would think that the headphones exploded, as this sometimes happens, but in this case the reason is completely different.

The child was watching a movie on Netflix using an iPhone and AirPods Pro. At some point, the system alert was triggered Amber Alert (Child Abduction Alert System). Initially, the headphones worked at a low volume, but the sound of Amber Alert was so loud that it ruptured the child’s eardrums and damaged the cochlea. After the incident, the boy suffered from hearing loss, nausea, dizziness and tinnitus. He is now required to wear a hearing aid.

In fact, this happened back in 2020, but, as is often the case, the general public will learn about such incidents much later.

The lawsuit alleges that Apple is aware of “defective” AirPods that do not mute Amber Alerts. What’s more, Apple also didn’t include a warning about a potential issue that users might encounter.

The lawsuit against Apple seeks damages for the boy and his parents, who are under enormous emotional stress due to the situation. The lawsuit seeks “punitive damages in an amount that will punish defendants for their conduct and deter other technology companies from engaging in such misconduct in the future.”
