It isn't hard for the boys to hear Piggy, the truth is that they just don't want to listen to him. The fire is exciting and Piggy isn't, he whines a lot about things that most of the other boys find totally boring. Piggy is considered to be an outsider, he doesn't fit in and the majority of the boys consider him a joke and unworthy of respect, so they just don't listen to him. Jack in particular dislikes Piggy and his usual response to anything that Piggy says is, "shut up!"
