Just tossing in my two cents ...

I'm one of the "holdouts" who doesn't have an Android or Apple device, so most of the questions can better be answered by those with such equipment.

I am deaf on one side, and can't hear in stereo, so I listen in mono with my Victor Stream. It's much easier for me to understand voices if they are close to normal speed. I can listen to faster voices on my Stream if it's set to about 3 or 4, depending on the speaker's talk speed. On recent shows there have been some voices, probably from an Applee or Android device, that were so fast I had to skip the segment; it was probably a demo of something, and I kept hearing incredibly fast speech, and the person presenting the demo was talking on top of the voice. This was even more challenging, since I cannot isolate one voice out of a group of two or more voices. Hearing challenges differ for each person who experiences them, but I've mentioned a few common challenges, and I hope others can join the discussion.

Also, there are listeners whose native language is not English; when you speed up a voice or talk on top of another voice or a device with speech, you're making it very difficult for such individuals to understand English.
