I'm not sure if this sentence is natural - I know that a similar sentence in French for example would technically translate the same, but the meaning would be something more along the lines of "I can't hear anyone," however that is not an accepted translation.

The thing is, you could also say "I can't hear anyone" in HV. But that would be translated differently.
"Mirti rȳbagon koston daor."
