Bone Conduction

I Hate the Sound of My Own Voice!

ListeningI have had had many people tell me I hate the sound of my own voice! This is natural as it has to do with science. It's called Bone Conduction.

Bone conduction is the conduction of sound to the inner ear through the bones of the skull. In other words, there is bass added to your voice through your skull.

Here is a test, talk while putting your fingertips on your forehead. You will feel the vibration. These vibrations add bass to your voice. When you listen only using your ears and not your skull, your voice can sound thin. This can cause some people large amounts of stress. Here is the truth:

Your voice sounds different, but different does NOT equal bad.

The only way to get over it is to just keep recording and get used to it. I just need you to trust me and know you sound fine.

This is just one of the tips I've picked up over my decade of podcasting and I'd love to help you. Go to www.podcastconcultant.com and let's start working together
