Many companies and individuals are searching for a Vietnamese voice over service. With the growing trend of online marketing and intense offline competition, affordable Vietnamese voice over is becoming increasingly vital for enhancing the professionalism and popularity of advertisements, as well as reducing production costs and increasing business competitiveness. However, finding a good and low-cost Vietnamese voice over service can be challenging in today’s market, due to the unique nature of the voice over industry. In order to get the best affordable voice over, it’s important to understand the reasons behind this trend and find a trustworthy provider such as VNVO Studio.
Why are Vietnamese voice over services not inexpensive?
Many people ask this question when looking for the cost of Vietnamese voice over services in the market. In reality, the cost for a brief voice over production in Vietnamese can range from roughly $30 to an unlimited amount. A professional Vietnamese voice over video can cost anywhere from several dollars to hundreds of dollars, depending on the voice actor and the business’s needs. The following are the main reasons why the cost is not cheap:
- Costs of recording studios: Voice over providers usually have a high-quality studio. To make sure the voice over file is of a standard quality, with accurate sound and no noise, a quality studio with appropriate equipment is necessary. Building a studio and purchasing such equipment in Vietnam is not usually inexpensive. As a result, when determining the cost, providers often include studio costs in the product costs. For instance, the cost of using a recording studio in Vietnam typically ranges from $13 to $22 per hour. Even though short voice over videos only last a few minutes to several minutes, customers still have to pay for an hour.
- Expenses on Vietnamese voice talent: Becoming a professional Vietnamese voice actor requires a suitable voice and a lot of practice. Similar to singers, it’s difficult to have a suitable and skilled voice. Not all pleasant-sounding voices are suitable for voice over work. It’s important for the Vietnamese voice actor to have the skill to deliver the script in a natural, smooth, and appealing manner. Voice actors each have their own techniques and experience in the industry, which requires a significant amount of time and effort. As a result, payment for Vietnamese voice actors is not cheap either. Typically, payment for voice actors in Vietnam is based on advertising or the number of words or pages if they are doing voice over for longer scripts, such as audio stories, e-books, or training materials. Payment for voice actors is a major factor that contributes to the high expenses of voice over in the Vietnamese market today.
- The cost of post-production is a factor that contributes to the increased cost of voice over services compared to other services available. Although voice over recording itself only addresses 70% of the requirements, post-production is also crucial in determining the final quality of the product. Wave files are typically processed using professional audio software such as Adobe Audition, Audacity, or Acoustica to remove background noise and fine-tune sound effects to meet the needs of the advertising industry. This process requires skilled engineers with a deep understanding of audio processing. The cost of post-production adds to the overall cost of voice over services.
- The voice over service industry is not well established in Vietnam. It has been a well-developed field in developed countries for a long time, but in Vietnam, it is a relatively new concept with limited demand. Vietnamese businesses often handle the voice over recording in-house or use low-quality services. There are also few training centers for professional voice actors in the country, with most voice actors being MCs or TV personalities. Due to the lack of demand, the cost of voice over services is not competitive.

Are there many Vietnamese voice over services priced at just a few dollars?
Yes, there are many such services in the Vietnamese market. However, the low cost of these services is often reflected in the quality of the products. Many of these cheap voice over services are produced at home-based studios or older, unqualified facilities, which leads to poor sound quality. Technicians often use unsophisticated methods to cover up the poor quality of the recording by mixing in music.
