Any tech interviewers on the list?

Lets say you are on a phone interview with a recruiter.
You dont understand what he/she is saying,
due to a different accent, or due to bad connection,
whatever. What do you say?

Which of the following is better:
"I am sorry, can you repeat what you just said?"
"I beg your pardon?" (this sounds like I am talking to a judge?)
Is "can you repeat please" considered bad manners, like you are
ordering them or something?
