    Your voice is so low/Your voice is so weak.

    Hi.

    I found a language partner; we chatted with each other online. But the tape she sent me last night was with low voice. I could hear her voice but her voice was low. I said to her "Your voice is so low" and "Your voice is so weak". I used both to different people.

    I wonder if they are natural.

    Re: Your voice is so low/Your voice is so weak.

    Is the sound level too low, or is her voice drowned out by background noise?

    The background doesn't have any noise. She used a kind of app to record her voice (we can speak to our phone) but I don't know what was wrong with the app. When I was listening to what she said, I could barely hear her. It was very low but you could still hear she was saying something. Later, she changed another tool to record and it became very clear!

    I need to click the message she uploaded in that app to listen to her. But the voice was low.

    By "low", do you mean "low-pitched" or "quiet"?

    Indistinct (due to poor recording, as distinct from the quality of the voice itself).
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    Silver, "almost quiet" doesn't mean anything. Try:

    Barely audible

    Or:

    Low in volume
