Apple Sued After Couple Alleges Son’s Permanent Hearing Loss From AirPod Use

Apple Airpod Lawsuit

A couple in Texas sued Apple for over $75,000 in damages after their son was allegedly injured by his Airpods. The boy, who is now 14 years old and identified in the lawsuit as B.G., was using his AirPods Pro with his iPhone to watch Netflix in 2020 when an Amber Alert came through.

B.G. was watching Netflix on “low volume” and when the Amber Alert was issued, it “went off suddenly, and without warning, at a volume that tore apart B.G.’s ear drum, damaged his cochlea, and caused significant injuries to B.G.’s hearing.” The child has also “suffered from bouts of dizziness, vertigo, and nausea,” since the incident, as well as mental anguish and emotional trauma. He will probably have to use hearing aids for the rest of his life.

“At 12 years old, B.G. suffered sudden and permanent hearing loss in his right ear,” according to the lawsuit. “B.G. has lost his ability to live a normal life, and he will continue to live a diminished life into the future, including a diminished earning capacity.” Gordoa and Reyes’s claim that Apple had knowledge of the defect that caused the loud alerts but did not do anything to fix it. Their lawsuit includes examples of customers complaining about the problem online. The suit said hundreds of people are seeking a solution on Apple’s support website. The lawsuit also claimed the family will have medical bills to deal with for the foreseeable future “as a result of the defective AirPods.” The suit claims the devices are defective in design or lack adequate warnings for the risks of use.
