Google cannot be called a strong player in the headphone market yet, but it seems that it wants to become at least noticeable.

Future Google headphones will get better.  The company is actively investing in the development of this area

According to the source, recently Google has entered into several deals in order to strengthen this line of business. For example, the company bought Dysonics with its 3D sound technology.

Last year, the search giant took intellectual property from startup RevX Technologies, which created a device to optimize in-ear headphones for musicians performing on stage.

Google also spent $17.4 million to acquire French startup Tempow, which developed the first OS for fully wireless headphones and worked with Motorola and TCL. Most Tempow employees have moved to Google.

In addition, back in 2020, Google acquired part of the audio equipment business from Synaptics for $35 million. Google has acquired audio hardware patents and patent applications that cover active noise-cancelling headphones, among other things. The deal also included the transfer of part of the Synaptics staff to Google, and the former vice president and general manager of Audio moved to Google as a product manager.

It is worth noting the Google job listings, where, among other things, there is a vacancy for the head of some experimental acoustic laboratory.

Thus, apparently, in the foreseeable future, Google will increase its position in the headphone market and, possibly, expand its range.

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

Apple AirPods Pro ruptured a 12 year old boys eardrums leaving him

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.

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

The child was watching a movie on Netflix using an iPhone and AirPods Pro. At some point, the Amber Alert system (child abduction alert system) went off. 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.”
