    sound level

    "I can't hear you. The connection is very low".

    please, how do I say that I can't hear someone who I'm talking on the phone because the sound level is very low?

    Thanks.

    Re: sound level

    'weak' and 'feeble' refer to the speaker's voice, whether on the phone, or speaking person to person, as if they are ill.
    As we understand, it is actually the volume of sound being transmitted and received, an electronic failing, not human.
