I sound a lot younger than my age. I hate hearing my voice recorded.

I think my physical voice has two 'ages'.
One that matches my age and one that is half my age or less.
People who hears the latter may thought I'm around 12 and ask an adult if they heard it through the phone. The former may rather think I'm not in a mood or something... :|
It depends on my mood. The former is usually serious or level headed but there are times it doesn't have to be, while the latter is usually anything but serious but it do happens even if I'm truly being serious and level headed.

Nonetheless, both with same tones, same ranges, same accents, same rhymes... Many similarities, but also just as many differences.


I usually thought my voice had more range and tones when it actually isn't the case.

I don't know what would constitute a "younger then my age" kinda voice actually. I guess I sound fairly point on.

I sound younger than I am. Once I had to transcribe an interview for uni where I was the interviewer. I was horrified. I seem to have a very strong Australian accent. Stronger than I'd like anyway.

I had a "girl's" voice until about eleven, then my voice dropped so quickly that I sounded like a grown man more or less overnight. I still have a fairly low voice. I remember walking home from school in my second year of secondary school and talking to someone the year below, with whom I hadn't spoken since we'd been at primary school together; he said "My God, puberty has hit you like a ton of bricks!"

According to ppl who hear me on the phone, or the Drive thru, yes. One man said something like, he thought it was an 11 yr old girl (which is an exaggeration )

It's more like the "rhythm" one evinces when one talks.

I'm told I sound older on the rare occasions when I speak. Sometimes allergies give me an even deeper voice. Every once in a while when I spontaneously sing a verse or two of a song they say I sound a little bit like David Bowie or Benjamin Orr.

My voice definitely isn't young for my age, but my pitch tends to be all over the place.

I apparently have a DJ or commercial voice over set of pipes. I don't hear it but others do. I grew up disliking my voice because it was slightly lower pitched than most girls'.

Up until a few weeks ago I would also have told you that I cannot sing. I was so ashamed of my voice that in 17 years of marriage I never once sang in front of my husband. Then I got caught by surprise. He thought I sounded like Lana del Rey or a quieter version of Adele. Now he wants to enter me in karaoke competitions for cash prizes, the thought of which is horrifying. That is so not happening.

Honestly, I do not hear it. It all sounds like crap to me. Too husky, too throaty, off key... just not "right."

I have a flat, monotone voice, but it can get high and young-sounding when I am excited or not concerned with "masking."
