The Mind's Ear

Ilana and Maggie are making audio recordings as part of their project for the Dunn Middle School Science Fair next Friday, May 11, at 5:00 P.M. (Don't miss it!) We noticed that everyone thinks their own recorded voice sounds wrong. It's thinner and less powerful. It's not the voice I'm used to. What's odd is that everyone else sounds normal. How can we all think that, even when we're listening to the same tape? Is it an illusion that my own voice sounds different, or is it a real effect? Which is my real voice? Are there other examples of sounds based on the same principle?
