We hear our own voice in some way and then when we hear it on a recording it sounds completely different to our head. This is one of those strange moments that we all live in. We decided to find an explanation for this phenomenon.
It turns out, the reason is pretty simple. When we listen to our voice on a recording, the sound waves that come from the speakers travel to our ears through the air and we hear our voice in the same way that other people hear us speak.
But when we hear our voice when we are really speaking, we hear it in two different ways: externally and internally.
First, you listen to the sound that comes out of your mouth (the one that other people hear) and, at the same time, you listen to what comes from the vibrations produced by our vocal cords, which pass through our head.
The bones of the skull tend to increase low-frequency vibrations, which is why our voice sounds lower to us than it really is.
If you want to hear what your voice actually sounds like, record it, or alternatively cover your left ear and speak.
And don’t worry if you think it sounds weird or funny, because other people are used to hearing it like this!
When you hear your voice on a recording:
The sound vibrations enter our ear and meet our ear drum.
Your voice is sharp and strong.
When you hear your voice when speaking:
The internal bone vibrations resonate in your skull and change the perception of your voice.
Your voice sounds softer and lower.
