I think that's more reasonable.
It is not "more reasonable" to insert things into the text that don't exist, are not mentioned, and which would be impractical anyway.

Acts 2:6 KJV
Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

Every man - singular, each individual visitor.

Them - plural, the disciples who were speaking with other tongues.

What is not mentoned is a miracle of God performing the interpretation in foreign ears with foreign languages of the hearers that the speakers did not actually speak. What I see as more reasonable is the miracle happening in the speakers, and not the hearers. I cannot see how the speakers spoke in "tongues" if the miracle was in the hearers where their personal "tongues" were actually inserted into their ears that were tongues that weren't actually coming from the speakers' mouths to have spoken those actual languages. Acts 2 attributes the miracle to the Spirit giving utterance for the speakers to speak in tongues, and says nothing about a miracle happening instead in the ears of the hearers.

Consider this, also. There is a gift of interpretation of tongues. Why have that gift, if people can speak after God performed a miracle of interpretation in the ears of the hearers in Acts 2? All the way around, it seems off to say the miracle happened in the hearers. One might say the miracle was still seeing the speakers speak unknown languages. But the only miracle mentioned is God giving utterance to the speakers to speak in tongues, not anything God did in the ears of the hearers that was like ANOTHER additional miracle. To say a miracle of making the hearers hear words that the actual lips of the speakers did not speak, distances the tongues that the speakers spoke from the language the hearers heard.
