OK let's skip for now the need for a scientific explanation of why pitch would change on headphones but not on speakers.

My question is this- if wearing the headphones makes everything sound sharp, and if you were getting your voice folded back into the cans - wouldn't that make your voice sound sharp as well as make the track sound sharp? So wouldn't you just adjust your singing to be in tune to the track, and wouldn't both be off by the same amount so wouldn't they both be in tune when you played it back?

by this logic the effect should be less at higher SPLs, (because the vocals in the cans drown out any bone conductions) yet people are reporting it as worse, and people are reporting improvements by taking one side of headphones off.
