Just for the record I still think the expected "default" behaviour is
for the new headset to take the sound...
If your sisters speakers stop working all she has to do is unplug the
headset and the sound would move back to her speakers, thats a real
world effect with a real world result.

Its also how the analogue plugs work, IMHO its the expected behaviour
when local speakers are plugged in

And yes I know the powers that be disagree :)
