Am I the only one who doesn't like the default voice on headspace? Something about that Cockney-ish accent.... Great design though.

@evankimbrell I actually find the cockney-ish of it all to be soothing.

@evankimbrell check out Calm if you haven't already. "Andy's" voice just became something more distracting than helpful for me. Also, check out Insight Timer. Calm, Insight Timer, Zazn, UCLA mindfulness center and plenty more offer a lot for free, and minus Andy

@akber4747 you really don't like Andy, huh? 😞
Evan Kimbrell@evankimbrell · Founder, Sprintkick
@thecoppinger I'm sure he's a nice guy. I just like a little more enunciation

@evankimbrell My girl refused to use just because of the voice. I personally didn't find it annoying, but considering what a huge part of meditation it is the app should have multiple voices to choose from. GPS apps do it & it's actually more important for an app like this.

@evankimbrell everyone has their own likes & dislikes when it comes to voices. Personally I struggle to listen to a lot of the guided meditations with the floaty female Californian accents. I can't help but mention that Andy doesn't actually have a cockney accent at all. He's got a mild, southern British accent if you ask me. For reference - cockneys sound more like this: https://youtu.be/1WvIwkL8oLc

@samrye_enspiral yeah that's why I said "ish". He's not a Guy Ritchie character but he also certainly doesn't sound like the Queen. Soft consonants and dropping "h"s is all these unsophisticated American ears hear.
Sam Rye@samrye_enspiral · Founder
@evankimbrell gotcha. Ex-Brit here! Cockney can be quite a pejorative term in some circles, especially fuelled by film portrayal of the underworld of East London. Just trying to give Andy a bit of space from that 😉

I didn't find it annoying at first. But after reading this, now this is all I can think!

Nice work! I've made headspace subscriptions my go to gift for birthdays the past year and now I've got the whole family on board 👍
