"And this won't work on any existing products until they reverse-engineer their recognition."

Not true at all. It's easy to create adversarial images by treating the recognition system as a black box, and there's no reason sound would be any different. If anything, it actually makes things much easier - you don't need to know anything about how it works, you just try over and over again making small changes to the input until you get the output you want. No understanding or thinking required at all, which ironically makes machine learning the perfect tool to screw with systems that rely on machine learning - if you use machine learning for a recognition system, I can use machine learning to learn how to break it, without ever needing to know what your machine learning system has actually learned.
