3yo very verbal son asks me to repeat myself

My 3yo son had been asking me and others to repeat ourselves for the past several months.

When I asked him recently if he could tell me whether it is hard to hear me, I speak too quickly, or he forgets what i said, he answered that i speak too quickly.

He could have just picked an option at random...

He's an excellent and early speaker, huge vocab,has no issues with receptive vocab.

I'm just wondering if there could be such a thing as slowed receptive language processing.

I also need to get him assessed for glue ear. He's had no ear infections but has pretty sticky wax.
