Why does your voice sound different in recordings?

Have you ever heard your voice on a recording, utterly unrecognizable, isn’t it?

What causes this is the ability of our bones to conduct sound.

Other people hear the sound waves of your voice coming only through the air, and a recording also contains just these sounds.

The way we hear our voice is a combination of the regular sound and the low frequency sound conducted by the bones of our skull.

The voice which we hear on recordings are not as deeper as compared to what we hear when we speak due to the absence of low frequency sound conducted through the bones.

That’s why first recording of your voice may come to you as a shocking surprise.

Do not worry, if you are finding your voice funny that doesn’t mean people around you will find funny as they are used to it, as they hear you all the time.
