Do you happen to listen to a recording of your voice? You may wonder whether you really sound like that.

If you think in that way, you are not alone, because many people tend to do so. Generally speaking, when we hear our own voice, they should be much deeper and more resonant than how others think of it. However, what is the reason for that? In the simple way, it is attributed to the difference between air-conducted versus bone-conducted sound transmission.

Wanna to know more about such difference? You had better go watch the video presented by Greg Foot of Head Squeeze to see the phenomenon in three minutes for a quick review.
