Does Smoking Make Your Voice Deeper?

Many people email me and ask me if smoking makes your voice deeper.  I’ve never smoked myself, but can tell you by knowing a number of people that have smoked for many years, it does.  Haven’t you ever heard a 60 year old women that smokes?  They often sound like a man!

I did a little research and found out that in the short term, smoking can make some people’s voice sound deeper because it makes the vocal chords swell.  Also, the phlegm that builds up in your throat can change the shape of your voice box.  For certain people, this makes their voice sound more “crackly”, while for others it will actually lower their pitch.

The Long Term Effects

The problem is that over the long term, smoking is very bad for your vocal cords so if you are considering smoking just to benefit from a deeper voice I’d recommend that you seriously reconsider.

You probably already know how bad smoking is for the rest of your body… It causes all kinds of cancers, cardiovascular problems, breathing problems etc.  Not only will it contribute to premature break down of your vocal cords, it can also cause polyps to grow on them.  These polyps can make you voice sound absolutely awful.

Simply put, the risks of smoking to make your voice deeper out weight the small change that might occur with your voice.

What are Better Voice Deepening Options?

Although voice deepening surgery and testosterone are options to help make your voice deeper, they should really be a last resort and really are not necessary for most people.  The costs and risks associated with both methods are high.

90% of the time, voice training will help you deepen your voice pitch.  It won’t happen overnight, but if you are consistent with the training exercises it can make a big difference.

If you don’t have the money for hiring a voice coach for private lessons, then PLEASE do yourself a favor and checkout the next best thing…

Deep Voice Mastery Program – Review

Deep Voice Mastery is a relatively new voice deepening ebook/program that teaches both vocal and physical exercises that deepen your voice.  It’s meant for not only high pitched voices, but also those that have squeaky/crackly voices.

Now, let me tell you that there isn’t a whole lot out there when it comes to voice deepening guides/programs, so whenever something new hits the market  I’m always eager to check it out.

Even a few years ago when I transformed my voice, there wasn’t much helpful reading material out there so I really had to learn most of the stuff on my own… and this took lots of time and experimentation.

Why Should You Consider a Voice Deepening Program?

Although having a voice coach  would be great, most of us can’t afford to pay $100 or more per session (usually a minimum of 5 sessions).  Also, many of us don’t have the time to go meet with

Rudy Hanes Program Deep Voice Mastery

a voice coach and spend an hour at the session, and another hour to commute.

This  is why programs like Deep Voice Mastery can be very valuable. They can potentially save you time and lots of money… if they work!

When I started this site back in July 2008, the only online program out there was Mike London’s 12 page ebook called  “A Deeper Voice:  Right Away”.  It wasn’t very extensive, but people that came to my site tried it and said it worked.

Now that we’re in the year 2011, I figured that there had to be another program out there and sure enough I found “Deep Voice Mastery” authored by a man named Rudy Haynes.

I went ahead and forked out the $47 for the program, grabbed a cup of coffee and dove right in…

*NOTE!! I’d like to mention that I actually did buy the program for full price and am not one of those jerks that writes a review based only on the sales page of the site!  I figure that if you are considering buying one of these programs, it’s only fair that you know what you are going to get.

What is the Deep Voice Mastery program?

Deep Voice Mastery is a 36 page guide written by Rudy Haynes.  I wondered if Rudy was a real person, so I emailed him to ask a few questions after I purchased the program and to my surprise he responded within a few hours.   Pretty impressive so far.

Now more about the book & program it’s self…

The book is very easy to follow and laid out nicely.  It outlines the exercises that Rudy himself used to transform his voice.  With the exception of a couple techniques, I can tell you that they were very similar (if not identical) to the exercises that worked for me.

There are also two other helpful chapters in the book that outline voice deepening surgery and testosterone buccal, and who might benefit from these methods.  I can tell you that there really isn’t much information available on the web about these these topics, so I’m glad Rudy did the research and included the information in the ebook.

In addition to the ebook, there are a pile of bonuses.   Although not all of them may appeal to you, there are a couple in particular that are worth the $47 cost of the program alone.

*Do note that it says the bonuses are available for a limited time, but I think that is just a marketing gimmick.  They will still be available next week and probably next month for that matter!

Deep Voice Mastery Bonuses

Here’s what is included when you order the Deep Voice Mastery program:, and my 2 cents about each of them:

Voice Software

I tried this out and was impressed.  Pretty cool piece of software that allows to test and track your voice pitch.  It is a great way to actually be able to visually try to improve, and track your progress.


A couple of ebooks that didn’t interest me much, but could be useful to many of you.  One is about how to gain confidence and the other is a guide to dating women.  They are not going to help make your voice deeper, but could prove to be helpful!

Member’s Area Access

I thought this was cool.  The members area has a bunch of articles, some videos, and some bonus downloads that Rudy doesn’t mention on the main website.  It’s also the best place to contact Rudy.

Unlimited Email Support

I did verify that Rudy responds to emails which is cool.  Basically he is offering his support to you for as long as you need it.  Quite solid indeed…

Unlimited Updates

In all honesty I don’t know how many times the book will be updated, but the members area may very well be updated regularly.  I cannot confirm this yet however as I only ordered the program a week ago.

What I Didn’t Like About Deep Voice Mastery

Overall I think Rudy did a nice job with the program.  There are a couple of recommendations I made to him via email however.

1 – I recommended that he make separate ebook that demonstrate the voice deepening exercises.  Right now it’s all in the main book.  Being separate from the 36 page manual might make it easier to follow.

2 – I told him to make more video demonstrations so that the program is a little more user friendly.  It’s still easy to follow, but more videos would make it even better.

Update: Rudy emailed me back and informed me that these changes will be made in the next edition of the program (not sure when it is being released).

Final Thoughts

If making your voice deeper is really important to you then for $47 this program will be a steal, and I think the majority of you will be impressed.  The exercises work, Rudy appears to be a real person that offers real support, and pretty much all of the information you need is right at your finger tips.

This program beats Mike London’s “Deeper Voice: Right Away” out of the water.  No comparison.  It’s $20 cheaper and is way more extensive.

Do Deeper Voiced Men Really Have More Kids?

According to a recent study, men with deeper voices have more children than those with a higher pitched  voice.

The study conducted by David Feinberg of McMaster University in Canada showed that women are more attracted to men that have deeper voices.  Why is this?  Apparently some  women sub-conciously feel that the men are more masculine, healthier and older than other men.

David conducted the study to see how the increased attraction to deeper voiced men affected reproduction and the survival of offspring.

“While we find in this new study that voice pitch is not related to offspring mortality rates,” Feinberg said, “we find that men with low voice pitch have higher reproductive success and more children born to them.”

To look for a relationship between the pitch of a man’s voice and birth rates researchers studied a tribe in Tanzania know as the Hadza.  This tribe is one of the last know true hunter-gatherer cultures.  Because the tribe use no modern methods of birth control, the researches could compart birth rates with no outside influencing factors.

In the end the study showed that Male Hadza tribe members with the deepest voices had more children than the men with higher pitched voices.  This relationship between the depth of one’s voice and birth rates could give insight into the evolution of now only how females choose their mates, but also that of the male voice.

“If our ancestors went through a similar process,” Feinberg said, “this could be one reason why men’s and women’s voices sound different.”

If you were not born with a deep voice you can’t turn into Barry White.  The good news is that there are voice exercises that you can perform that will help condition your vocal chords and improve the depth of your voice dramatically.

Deep Singing Voice – How to Sing with a Deep Voice

Many people that they want a deep singing voice, when in actuality they want a stronger, clearer voice that expresses confidence.  Some people want all of the above!

The bad news is that if you don’t sound like Don Lafontaine now, you probably never will.  I am sorry to say that, but it is the truth.

You see, the size of your larynx is the most important factor that determines how deep your voice is.  Those with a larger larynx naturally have a deeper voice, because the vocal cord muscles are longer and are therefore able to produce a lower sound.

The good news is that you can certainly make your voice deeper and improve the strength and clarity of your voice by “exercising” the vocal cord muscles and following the other steps I outline below.

The Steps to a Deeper More Powerful Singing Voice

In order to achieve a deeper  singing voice, there are a few things that you must master, which I will go over in detail below:

Deep Singing Voice Tip #1 – Strengthen Your Diaphragm Muscles

Strengthening your diaphragm will allow you to take fuller, deeper breaths.  In order to strengthen the diaphragm muscle, inhale slowly and then exhale with an “ss” sound (like a snake).  Panting also works, but in either case it is important that you focus on using the diaphragm muscle in order to build those muscle.  Simply put, do not exhale using your lungs, use your diaphragm!  You may feel some discomfort in the diaphragm muscle as you continue this exercise, and that is a sign that you are performing it correctly.

Deep Singing Voice Tip #2 – Proper Posture

Posture is an important aspect when it comes to a deeper more powerful voice, and it is often overlooked.  Proper posture will help properly align the muscles that are responsible for projecting your voice.

Here are some posture tips:

  • Pretend that there is a string attached to your head and it is being pulled upwards.
  • Your head should be above your shoulders, shoulder above hips, hips above the knees (slightly bent) and knees above your feet.
  • Raise your chest to ensure that the lungs can fully expand when inhaling.

Simply put, slouching and poor body alignment are unacceptable and will deteriorate the sound of your voice.

Deep Singing Voice Tip #3 – Voice Projection

To get the most out of your voice, make sure you are relaxed.  Strained, tight vocal cords will make your voice sound higher as opposed to lower.  Now, stand straight and take a deep breath in.  It’s important that you raise your palate at this point-once you feel cold air hit the back of your throat you are good to go.  Now project your voice using your diaphragm muscles.  Be sure that your chin is straight or slightly downwards.

I’m sure that these deep singing voice tips will be helpful to you.  I’d also like to note that if you are not 25 years of age yet, your singing voice might naturally become lower over time, so it’s important to be patient!


Get a Deeper Voice – Strengthen The Vocal Cords!

I’d like to share a couple of simple tips for those of you that want to get a deeper voice.  As you probably know by now, it takes quite a bit of work to get a deeper voice especially for those that have weak or high voices.

Fortunately there are some things that you can do to make your voice sound deeper and stronger. One of the most important things to do is to strengthen the vocal cords.

Simply put, if your vocal cords are weak, then your voice will also be weak.  Even tight vocal cord muscles will cause the pitch of your voice to be higher. [Read more...]
