After a quick search I've found that a lot of other people are experiencing the same problem on other phones. I opened this thread because no one has reported this problem yet on a LG p880.

I've flashed the latest cm11 nightly and will continue to do so every day. The version I am running now is 11-20140115-NIGHTLY-p880.

After a clean restart outgoing calls work normally. After a couple of outgoing calls in call volume drops dramatically (I can barely hear the ringing tone before the other person picks up and then I can barely hear the other person talk). Incoming calls work normally. The problem continues until I restart my phone or I get an incoming call. Then the same happens all over again, first two - three calls work normally then in call volume drops.

I've tried making calls with and without a Bluetooth device and with and without the stock dialer. I've also tried merging calls and putting calls on hold after I call but the volume problem persists until I restart the phone or I receive an incoming call.

I will continue to update this thread as I flash nightly updates daily.

Thanks for your help

I have a workaround for this. When you start feeling that the volume is low, I first press the vol down button few times and then press the vol up button multiple times till I hear the voice properly.
Let me know if it works for you. But definitely this is a problem for all of us.

Hi and thanks for the reply. Tried to do what you described but it didn't work for me. Maybe I am doing something wrong. When the problem appears its even before the other person picks up so I can hear the ringing tone at a really low volume. I tried turning the volume down a bit and then turning it all the way up like you said but no luck...
I am now downloading the latest cm11 nightly, I hope this will be fixed soon.

Installed 11-20140120-NIGHTLY-p880. Problem is still there. The only workaround that works for me so far is calling myself. After the busy message I get, in call volume is fine again for two - three calls. Then the same thing happens all over again.

Flashed cm-11-20140122-NIGHTLY-p880. There is improvement worth mentioning. As soon as the new rom booted up I went to check the in call volume with outgoing calls. The third continuous call I made had really low in call volume so I was immediately disappointed. Then I made another call and in call volume was back to normal, something that would not happen in previous roms. Then I made another 5 calls and on the 6th the volume was low again. Since then though every call I've made has normal in call volume (one day / 20 calls).

This was a huge improvement. Will flash cm-11-20140123-NIGHTLY-p880 and see how it goes.

Flashed cm-11-20140123-NIGHTLY-p880 and then cm-11-20140124-NIGHTLY-p880. With the latter I've made numerous outgoing calls and I've only had low in call volume once. I'd say the cm developers have found whats wring and are slowly fixing it.

Thanks for your help

I've tried a workaround using sony xloud.It is known to increase in call volume.Works fine so far, pretty sure it increased mine.It also has clear audio, which is supposed to reduce noise when volume is too loud. (tested on latest nightly)

Make sure you thank the OP in this thread.I could never download that ZIP via pimpmyrom app, guess the servers are down.
Also make sure you thank this member for creating the flashable zip & wonderful app

Installation instructions :
Flash the zip via recovery, wipe dalvik cache and reboot.
