'''Vox falsa''' ([[
ex en: Though frequently used in reference to a particular type of vocal production in singing, falsetto vocal production also occurs within speech and is one of the four main vocal registers identified within [[speech pathology]]. The characteristic sound of falsetto is inherently breathy and flute-like, with few [[overtones]] present. The falsetto voice is more limited in dynamic variation and tone quality than the modal voice in both speaking and singing. Both men and women can [[phonate]] in the falsetto register.<ref name="McKinneyONE">McKinney, James (1994). The Diagnosis and Correction of Vocal Faults, cited below</ref> The term '''falsetto''' is most often used in the context of singing to refer to a vocal technique that enables the singer to sing notes beyond the [[vocal range]] of the normal or modal voice.<ref name="groveONE">THE NEW GROVE Dictionary of MUSIC & MUSICIANS.

There is a difference between the modern usage of the "head voice" term and its previous meaning in the renaissance as a type of falsetto, according to many singing professionals. The falsetto can be coloured or changed to sound different. It can be given classical styling to sound as male classical [[countertenor]]s make it sound, or more contemporary as is the case in modern R&B music(<ref name="jtone">Justin Timberlake: 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' by Christy Lemire - Associated Press - Sept. 11, 2006 - ''Timberlake's falsetto layering on top of one other as the songs build to their crescendos.''

It can be made in different tonalities as is often the case of its use in progressive rock (for example, [[Roger Meddows-Taylor]], [[Matt Bellamy]] of the band [[Muse (band)|Muse]]), heavy metal (for example, [[King Diamond]] of [[Mercyful Fate]]), and especially [[power metal]] (for example, [[Michael Kiske]] of [[Helloween]]). [[Chris Martin]] of the [[Alternative rock|alternative]] band [[Coldplay]], also uses falsetto. . . .-->
