A) Tell them that you can't hear them.

I would use one of these sentences to do so, depending on the atmosphere of the situation!

Sorry?

I beg your pardon.

Excuse me?

Could you speak a little louder, please! or

Have you got a frog in your mouth?

A. I will tell them that can not hear them.

It's a big problem to me that I can't hear someone clearly so I will shout whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat????

 

:DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Depending on the circumstances, I usually act in (A) or (B) manner, for example depending on speaker's gender!.. :))

B

I ask them to speak up or repeat what they said. It's really bad if you can't hear someone and pretend that you heard them. It's really bad! 

Beg your pardon? - for example.
