    I wish Apple went for something less manly.

    Love the Bombshell voice from my JAWBONE ERA (the last one they made).
    Still use it from time to time just because of that.

    Send an email to Tim Cook... He might even read it. Of course,a bit more voices to choose from would be better.

    I can use my voice recorder to capture it.

    Anyone here knows how to boost the level if I share the file?

    I am not sure they will go for anything better. They could simply have picked a younger voice and it would have been better.

    They needed a voice that's perceived as neutral, gender-evident but that would appeal to the vast majority of people of all ages and inclinations.

    I don't have common taste at all. Siri in its English US, UK and Australian iterations sounds like a mass-transit customer service female. I want her to sound like the assistant I would hire.

    I personally prefer the British female than the default US one. :)
