Why is your voice so much more pleasant and rich in your head than it is on a recording? That seems to be a question many people have the first time they hear their own voice played back for them. It would be one thing if everyone's voices sounded different, but voices that aren't your own sound the same in person and on tape. It turns out there's a reason for that, and as AsapTHOUGHT explains, it's all in your head. Well, your skull, anyway.
