Autophony

Autophony, also known as tympanophony, is the experience of finding that one's own voice sounds much louder than normal or is unpleasantly garbled. 

Autophony has been described in several clinical entities including superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome and patulous Eustachian tube dysfunction. Surgical treatment of the former is associated with resolution of the autophony.
