Do Are flat cables not get tangled/knottedtangle-free?

Well, probably everybody knows and hates this. Detangling the headset cable when putting it out of your pocket.

This headset productThis headset product claims to prevent the cable from tangling up by the "flat cable technology". One of the product commenters on the site says, this "technology" doesn't work, cables are still tangling up, it's a constructional defect.

Hear your music as it was meant to be heard. Discover LiveSound hi-fi headset. Experience genuine Sony Ericsson sound. Deep, punchy bass. Balanced, clean and dynamic audio reproduction. LiveSound hi-fi headset. Premium design. Flat tangle-free cables. LiveKey app control. And remote on-cable music and call-handling. LiveSound. Engineered for music lovers.

What sounds intuitive to me is that by flat cables you reduce probably a bit/lot the friction between the cables. But is this a necessary/sufficient factor for cables getting tangled? Or more a matter of sufficient time and a tight enough pocket. It's unclear where this technology can work, if it works at all. PlaysDoes friction theplay such a huge role?

PS: I was thinking about posting this in physics.SE or electricalengineering.SE, but currently think this is better proved by evidence than reasoning or "physics of knotted cables".
