LOL, slightly different headphone rant... fire hazard!

OK, time and time again I have ranted and raved about the advantages of wired over wireless headphones... and that wireless has always been an option... while some smartphone vendors have chosen to remove the wired headset option.

So here's one more little "wireless" issue... wired headsets do not burst into flame.

The recalled earphones were sold at Home Depot, Lowe's, and other hardware and electronics retailers throughout the U.S., as well as on CyberGuys.com.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the earphones can overheat, making users susceptible to burns and putting their property at risk of fire.

Five of these reports resulted in fires, although the resulting damage, if any, was not specified. Four individuals received "minor" burns from the recalled earphones.

Nice job... wireless headsets that burst into flame... causing "minor burns."

"Uh dude, where's my hair?!?" Yup, for $60 or so, you can get a "wireless haircut."
