Its just a matter of time until an airplane is brought down by these ****ty
batteries that are in everything.
I hope she sues the pants off of the headphone manufacturer. And wins.
Really need more quality control on these batteries.
I want to know the manufacturer.

That's very scary to hear, that's insane.

Manufacturer should discontinue them immediately and warn other users.

I knew it's crappy bluetooth headset.

Better bring proper analog headphone/IEMs next time! Filthy casuals.

Next time you wanna hurt yourself, please do it in silence. We know what casual means and what filthy means. There is no irony or sarcasm hidden in it.
Whats really sad is you thought of using them together and make a great opening line.

Come on, it was just a joke, no need to get your panties in a bunch.

OT: Sounds like a cheapo pair of headphones to me. And sorry but the black stuff on her face made me look twice, looked like some weird stubble

I tend to dismiss these sort of articles as opportunistic people looking for a claim, but in such a public and confined space that is quite unlikely.

Hopefully companies ramp up testing, if not then we may end up with a ban on electric devices while on a plane.

I've no idea what you said. Did you lose a bunch of mmr lately, so you switched to casual?
