Ep 25: Should I Wear Headphones While I Record My Podcast?

Wearing headphones while recording your podcast might seem counterintuitive, right? Wrong. It’s actually the only way to get an accurate, real-time review of your voice while recording. It might sound cringey, because the voice we hear is different from the voice those around us can hear; as discussed in a previous episode about hating the sound of your own voice. Headphones give you a truer version of how you sound, and the ability to make real-time adjustments to volume, popping Ps, and background noise.  

Key Points From This Episode:

  • What happens when you don’t wear headphones while talking.
  • How recording with headphones links to one of our previous episodes about hating the sound of our voice.
  • Why headphones give an accurate reflection of your voice.
  • The kinds of real-time adjustments you can make when wearing headphones.
