What would cause your voice to sound DEEPER on a recording, then how you hear it yourself?

From what I've read your voice is supposed to sound HIGHER in recordings, b/c when you hear it while speaking some of the sound waves are spreading out through bone, making it seem deeper than it originally was.

I'm not sure if it's the quality of recording, but when I've heard myself recorded, it's always considerably (IMO) deeper than how I hear myself speak. (Could a lower quality recorder - like cell phone video, not capture some higher frequencies?...I can't think of a reason I'm experiencing the opposite of what's generally true).
