    in your head than how you do in reality?

    I certainly do, annoying when you sound perfectly clear in your head but no one can understand what you just said in real life.

    I sound confident and clear in my head but in reality I seem to have a slightly 'gay' hint to my voice and far less clear.

    That's because you do sound different to yourself to how you sound in reality.

    Which is also the reason why most people hate the sound of their own voice when they hear it back. Your own voice, to you, sounds deeper and a little more bassy because the higher sound frequencies get absorbed/cancelled/lose energy as they travel through your body and reach your ears, resulting in a slightly distorted sound of your own voice.

    Not entirely sure on the accuracy 100%, maybe someone more knowledgeable could clarify or add to what I've said.

    Everyone has a different voice in their head to what they sound like in real life.

    I use to find my recorded real voice really annoying, but after doing video editing for a while I kinda got used to it so it doesn't sound so bad to me now.
