Female voice easier to understand

I am using the free Duolingo version. I find it much easier to understand the female voice. Is there a setting that I can use to only hear the Dutch female voice?

I don't think there is unfortunately. And yes I agree that in most cases it is much easier to hear the female voice.

Unfortunately such a setting doesn't exist in the real world either.

While the female voice might be easier to understand, it is also more robotic and less like a real Dutch speaker than the male voice. Getting exposure to different voices will greatly help your listening skills in the end. Keep up the good work, it will get easier!
