As she said something low in his ear he turned toward her with a rush of emotion.
Daisy’s voice is a powerful tool that moves Gatsby unlike anything else about her. Whenever her voice emerges, low and murmuring, it captures everybody around her and embodies all of Gatsby’s rags-to-riches dreams, complete with his “golden girl”.
Nick described Daisy’s voice like this in Chapter 1:
I looked back at my cousin who began to ask me ques- tions in her low, thrilling voice. It was the kind of voice that the ear follows up and down as if each speech is an arrange- ment of notes that will never be played again.
