Aural Lie

Your voice sounds different in your head than it does through a microphone because your ear picks up the bone conducted vibrationa as well as those traveling through the air. The bond-transferred tones are usually low and full, which is why mic'd sounds tend to sound high and tinny.

Bone conduction has been used with great success in headsets, most notably the Aurial Jawbone, to identify the speakers voice and isolate it from the background noise.
