This Is Why Your Own Voice Sounds So Weird When You Hear It.
by Sun Gazing
If you are anything like me, hearing your speaking voice on a recording, is usually cringe-worthy! Sometimes you may hear your recorded voice, and not even recognize it as your own. I’ve found it to be even weirder hearing my voice on a video…it almost seems disembodied.
I’ve always wondered about this strange phenomenon; it is true that your voice does sound different to yourself than you sound to others. The video you are about to watch explains that there is actually a scientific reason for this.
When we speak we are hearing our voice both externally and internally. Not only do you hear what is actually coming out of your mouth (external), but the “real” voice is combined with the sound of the internal bone vibration. This combination causes you to perceive your voice as softer and lower-pitched.
What happens when you hear a recording of your voice, is that the internal noises you usually hear when speaking, are eliminated. The sound vibration that comes out of a speaker reaches us through our ear drums, causing a sharper, stronger sound than the one we hear when we speak.
In recording a voice, there is some distortion, so that it is hard to ever totally know how you sound to others. All this being said, the following video you are about to watch below will give you a far greater understanding of WHY YOU HATE THE SOUND OF YOUR OWN VOICE.
