It is undeniable that women are more attracted to and prefer men with deeper voices. They find that what they say can be remembered easily and is more memorable compared to men with high-pitched tones. If you’ve ever heard your own voice in a recording and cringed at how high-pitched and nasally it sounded, you would probably have wished that you sounded manlier and more pleasant.
Deeper Voices & Self-Assurance
Men who speak with deeper and stronger voices also come across as more self-assured and serious. Sadly, there is nothing much that we can do to lower and deepen our voices. We are all stuck with our voices that were given to us by nature and what our bodies have. Although you can’t deepen your voice substantially, there are some tips and tricks to help your voice sound deeper than it actually is and help you make the most of what you have been given.
Don’t Force Your Voice To Sound Deeper
Forcing your voice to be deeper than it actually is can also be damaging to your voice and throat. The artificial projection of voice from the lower part of our throat helps produce a temporary lower, deeper tone in our voices. However, this action is actually damaging to our vocal cords. If you talk like this consistently, you will be wearing and tearing down your vocal cords, leading to a frequent loss of voice or hoarseness in your voice.
Besides damaging your throat and vocal cords, speaking in an artificial lower tone also means that most people won’t be able to get what you are saying. When you talk using the lower part of your throat, the sound produced lacks power and is often not projected well. The voice produced won’t be loud and will end up sounding muffled and soft. Besides the sound, you will also feel an obvious strain on your vocal cords and some discomfort. So, speaking with a falsely created lower tone can make you feel manlier with a deeper voice, but there is no use if people cannot make sense of what you are saying. Besides, there are other factors women look for in a potential spouse, so your tone of voice isn’t everything… although having said when it comes to conversational starters it is kind of important!
However, if you feel deepening your voice is important, there are still some things which you can do to make it a teeny bit deeper than it actually is.
Speak In Your Natural Pitch
The most important aspects to making your voice sound better and fuller is to utilize your diaphragm and speak in your natural pitch. Speaking with your natural pitch is the best way to project your voice and it will not strain your throat or damage your vocal cords. To know whether you are speaking in your natural pitch, you need to find out if you are talking using your ‘mask’. The ‘mask’ refers to the area on your face with your lips, bridges, and sides of your nose.
When you speak, this area should vibrate slightly. This means that you are projecting your voice from your ‘mask’ and you are projecting with your optimal tone and pitch. The sound produced will not sound nasally and will not strain your voice. You can practice speaking in your natural pitch and tone by saying “mm-hmm” with your lips closed. Speak in a fun and sincere tone and see if there is a slight movement in the ‘mask’ area. You can repeat the statement, adding numbers at the end to see if you are still in an identical tone and pitch. Practice this repeatedly and you can make the most out of your voice by speaking in your natural pitch.
Utilize Your Diaphragm
Besides speaking in your natural pitch, it is also very important to utilize your diaphragm. To check whether you are breathing properly with your diaphragm, see if your belly moves in and out and whether your chest and shoulders remain still. Breathing properly is the first step to making use of your diaphragm for a fuller-sounding voice. Breathing from your diaphragm helps give your voice more power and prevents your throat from being strained. To practice speaking from your diaphragm, say a couple of lines of words but focus mainly on your breathing. Visualize your breathing with your voice coming out of your belly and then project it outwards through the ‘mask’ area. Make sure your chest and shoulders stay still at the same time. To make your voice sound louder, push your voice out from your belly harder. This helps to project your voice while making sure that your throat is not damaged and strained. It gives you a fuller, more powerful voice that doesn’t sound nasally and helps to ‘deepen’ your voice a little.
Diaphragm, Natural Pitch & Deep Voice
Although we may dislike the way we sound, there really is nothing much that we can do about our voices. Forcing our voices to sound deeper can actually be really damaging and bad for our throats. Despite so, what we can do is make sure that we project our voices properly by speaking in our natural pitch and making use of our diaphragm. This produces a fuller and more powerful voice to make your voice sound slightly deeper than it actually is.
