Translation:Are you listening to music?

"czy" makes it clear that this is a yes/no question. If it wasn't here, we'd accept your word order, but as it's present, we require a 'real' word order of an English question.
"Wy słuchacie muzyki?" could be interpreted as expressing surprise, that is when we accept a word order like "You listen to music?".
I know that stress typically goes on the penultimate syllable, but if I recall correctly from something I read, that's not the case for some words, particularly words with Latin roots (like musyka). However, one of the audio clips sounds like the stress is being placed on the penultimate syllable. So for clarification, should it be MU-zi-ka or mu-ZI-ka? (I'd give the IPA, but I'm on my phone.)
It's "ZY", not "ZI" ;)
It should be MU-zy-ka. I wouldn't trust the audio so much, it's a speech synthesizer. On the other hand, people often don't care about correct stress, especially that putting the stress in the wrong place wouldn't result in a change of meaning (like in Spanish or Russian).
Typing the exact answer which is displayed on top of this page and getting marked wrong for it is quite an extraordinary claim, which, in turn, requires extraordinary evidence. And yet you didn't even use the built-in report function to let us see your exact response. Please understand that there is nothing we can do about it at this point.
Well actually I did use the report function. It was just on a similar topic which is "Ty sluchasz tej kobiety" if I remember correctly. I typed in "Are you listening to this woman" as an answer and got an incorrect result. So when I was asked to translate "Czy wy sluchacie muzyki?" I translated "You are listening to music?" and also got an incorrect answer. Next time I'll take a screenshot
The reports are anonymous, but I found a report from yesterday that is likely to be yours, under the other sentence that you mentioned. The report says "Are listening to this woman", so it misses a word.
A screenshot is also a very good idea.
And just to make it clear: yes, we have seen some proof of actual bugs, when the answer looked perfect and was still rejected. But this still seems like a rare bug. Almost always if someone claims that they answered correctly and reported it, the report actually has a mistake.
