I suffered a temporary threshold shift, meaning my hearing was impaired for some time, and I still deal with discomfort and ringing in my ears.
Has anyone suffered similar injuries? If so, please elaborate. Did you report the incident to Microsoft? Did you see a doctor? Please share your experience by commenting below or at http://www.********************.com
Sure it did. Electricity won't travel through plastic, which is the portion of your earbud touching your ear. So you heard a screech, take the player back. You trying to start a class action suit and leech some money from a big company? nice real nice.
