Responsive video seems rather less than daft. Why else would video sites  
go to the trouble of building UI and enabling multiple formats (which they  
have quite possibly gone to the trouble of generating and storing, too)?

Responsive audio is something where I see similar user cases, but fewer  
variables meaning it isn't a high priority on its own...
