I do, but I listen to my crappy voice for personal use once in a blue moon. I mostly just read and use the same tone of voice, and I always end up yawning and getting relaxed easily, even if I was full of energy.
The thing with active voice vs. passive listening is that you might doze off, and forget what you're listening to. Maybe after repeated times, it could work, but I personally like using an active voice seeing how it may imply to your mind that you're really wanting things to happen if you take great efforts to show that. Also, it's normal to have augmented visualization during the trance, and back to the I-can't-see-for-the-life-of-me after. You just have to let it settle it with practice, and maybe believing what you did during the session will shift into anything else beyond that.
