    This is pretty much a question of air flow.  When you talk, air is being passed through the larynx and vocal folds, and its form changes.  Because these aren't exactly the same shape and size in different people, the sound produced from person to person is different.  For example, vocal folds in males are larger, and the way that air then passes through these then results in a different frequency of sound, and hence a lower voice.
