I continue the discussion from bug 1345049. My colleague Paul can also verify the fix. Actually there is a case that it can fail silently. Can you please capture logs, MOZ_LOG=cubeb:4 ?

Does this bug need reopening then?
Flags: needinfo?(achronop)
I'm working with Ovidiou to finger out what is going on. I know it works for me and Paul. I don't see anything failing in the logs. Ovidiu will test with different laptop and headset in case we finger out something from there. Once we define the error I will reopen the bug if that's the case.
