audiobook listening friends: do you listen at 1x speed? 1.25x? 1.5x? Listening to my first full audiobook and curious how others feel about speeding them up

@boly hello, I am here for this question which is RIGHT UP MY ALLEY!
I started at 1x and listen to almost all podcasts at 1x. Over time, I’ve slowly ramped my audiobook speed up to 1.4x, but that’s about the highest I go. I think my most common setting is 1.25x, but it can also depend on the narrator and the density of the book.

@kanga 1.25x seems to be a sweet spot for me! I'm listening to a book with Southern characters/accents so it definitely gets a little funky sped up too much
