Why Don’t We Recognize our Voice on a Recording?

By looking at the title now i’m wondering that too…

I have a short answer. The reason is in the ability for ourselves to conduct sound. Your interlocutors hear only the sounds conducted by air. The record also only contains such sounds. At the same time, the way we hear ourselves is a combination of regular sounds and the low frequency sounds conducted by the bones of our skulls. It’s very interesting. It’s crazy the way our body works!
