Apple Hit with Defective Product Lawsuit that Targets iPod's Earbud Design

Those ubiquitous white earphones that seem to be everywhere you look these days are the focus of a defective product lawsuit that was recently filed against computer industry giant Apple. A class-action case claims that the unique "pod" design of the earphones could be linked to possible hearing loss, because they place the source of the sound much closer to the ear's delicate inner workings than other headphone designs do. In addition, the lack of a safe maximum volume control has been cited in the case as possible negligence in the design. At the current juncture, it is unclear whether and when the case will move forward.
