I ran with this option turned on for a bit. Almost everybody entered their destination. My cancellation rate DID go up. My ratings took a bit of a hit but nothing too troubling. Several pax expressed relief when I wasn't actually deaf, though why it would matter is beyond me. Lots of people yelled at me instead of talking in a normal tone and since I'd forgotten I even had this setting turned on it took me a while to realize why everyone was yelling. I turned it off after one dude kept pulling on the back of my seat to pull himself forward to yell in my ear. Any time it was brought up I would claim ignorance and blame Uber.
