Perhaps you saw my praise over my new Bose headphones with noise reduction a couple of days ago. Well, now I've discovered a serious flaw that I didn't realise before.

When you run out of batteries, like I have now, the headphones don't work at all. Granted that the noise reduction feature can't work without batteries but I should at least be able to listen to music in them don't you think?

It should work like this:

function listen2music():
    if hasBatteryPower():
       playMusic(enable_noise_reduction=true)
    else:
       playMusic(enable_noise_reduction=false)

He's talking about the HEADPHONES running out of battery power, not the device that is playing music into them.

You speak like a 2-year-old being taught ebonics in school. Stop.

My hi-fi stopped working at home when I didn't pay the electricity bill.

Now THAT's a serious flaw, man!

Agreed - anyone who denies this flaw or comments otherwise is a complete idiot. I was just searching for a way to disable this bug.
