Possibly related to your coverage? Perhaps where specifically your using the iPhone when making the calls.

Turn off wifi, shut down iPhone, eject Sim. Re-insert Sim, power back on iPhone.

Also, Apple released a software patch recently, which was contributing to LTE issues. Pending your carrier.

Some have this problem, mostly on Verizon. Try this and see if it works:

Settings - Cellular - Cellular Data Options - Enable LTE - Switch from ' Voice & Data ' to 'Data Only'

Friend had the same thing. Went to apple twice. a hard reset may or may not work. Even thought it worked by the time we got home his phone was acting the same way.

Replacement!

You can barley hear? Wheat seems to be the trouble? Corn you describe the symptoms in detail?
Quinoa tell me if you've tried disabling "noise cancellation" in the Accessibility settings?
