Top 10 Vocaloids with the Best Voices

Generally, people like just the character but not his voice at all. Could you vote, just thinking about the Vocaloid voice? There are Vocaloids who are a lot better than Hatsune Miku!

Let's show that character design isn't the most important. Let's show that Vocaloid is about song, not just cute designs!
The Top Ten
1 Megpoid (GUMI) Megpoid is a Vocaloid by Internet Co., Ltd.. Her voice is sampled by Megumi Nakajima. The mascot of the software is called "Gumi". The name Gumi is the voice provider Megumi Nakajima's nickname from her childhood.

GUMI has a good variation of voices and songs, and oddly enough, they are all just perfect. GUMI was my favorite when I discovered Vocaloid, because of her voice, appearance and songs, all beautiful!!

I don't hate GUMI, but I hate how you guys judge a vocaloid's voice by being realistic. Just because it's realistic doesn't mean it sounds the best, I'd rate her as 8/10 actually, her voice is not actually interesting, but I still like her. Yes, she does have the most realistic vocaloid voice, but if you want realistic voices, you can just listen to real humans, they sing better too, don't tell me they're autotune and stuff because there are still singers that don't use autotune. Back to the topic, some of GUMI's sing are pretty good too, like ECHO. GUMI can sound good having robotic voice too.

I sometimes think:" Why does people often love Miku or Rin/Len best, why not GUMI, Luka, Yukari or others? " Yes, so many people love Miku. Because she's beautiful, her appends are many, she has many characters (Snow Miku, Sakura Miku, Racing Miku, etc... ) But other Vocaloids don't have that luck. Miku is always the most popular. How sad for the others... =((

When I was a fan of Vocaloid, I didn't know I will a fan of which Vocaloid. But after hearing many GUMI's song, I think I love GUMI. Maybe GUMI doesn't appear with the most beautiful appearance or many appends like Miku, but with me, GUMI always shine, she is always my BEST IDOL! Love you, GUMI!

2 Kagamine Rin Kagamine Rin & Len are humanoid personas voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media, headquartered in Sapporo, Japan.

In Kokoro, she sounds like a robotic angel. In Paper Planes, she sounds like a young human girl. In Daughter of Evil, she sounds like an evil princess. Rin can have a human's voice, a robot's voice, or an angel's voice. And those are just the ones we have heard! Her and Len's songs can make a grown man cry when they die. Their voices can portray so many emotions, they don't sound like angles; they ARE angels. Anyone who disagrees, well, they are crazed. Rin is the best vocaloid that will ever exist!

No way in hell. Rin only got 2nd place because she's popular, she beat Miku because Miku has more haters resultin to this, yes, Rin's voice can be gentle and cute, BUT THAT'S IT! That's the only genre her voice fits, no, her voice doesn't fit rock songs or any other genres, Rin's voice can't even past MEIKO, IA, Kaai Yuki, and even VY1! You people only vote for your favorite Vocaloid, saying "Her voice fits this! " "She's the best! That's why she's my favorite! " "She has the best voice! She is better than other vocaloids! " What an idiot, I don't get you guys...

3 Kagamine Len Kagamine Len is a Japanese male Vocaloid2 developed by Crypton Future Media and voiced by Shimoda Asami. He was originally released along with Kagamine Rin on December 27, 2007 as Kagamine Rin/Len (CV02), but had the updates of Kagamine Rin/Len (CV02) Act 2 (on July 18, 2008), Kagamine Rin/Len Append (on December 27, 2010), and Kagamine Rin/Len V4X and Kagamine Rin/Len V4 English, who spoke English... read more

Len should get more love. His voice has pure and super understandable vowels and consonants like Rin, but he has a very soothing tone to his voice(I don't know that's my opinion). Anyway, if you have anything to say about Len or any of the vocaloids that is bad, let me say one thing... The quality of most of the voices depends on whether you can use them correctly/ know how to tune their voices to make them sound better... I mean, take the append versions of servant of evil and daughter of evil aka the project Mirai versions. When I first listened to these I had a hard time beleiving that they were singing! So this confirms that both the Kagamines, especially Len, need more love! Oh and if you're a fangirl of Len, please share this with other girls who are also fans of Len because I know he has A LOT more fans out there. PS: when I posted this he was at number five...

His voice is so emotional and expressive. He may not be real, but I can feel real emotions when he sings because of the great power he has. When you add his serious and cold appends to the mix, you get a soft and, yet again, emotional voice. Len has everything. He can sing happy electro pop songs, blow you away with his power in rock songs, or make you cry and soothe your soul with his serious append.

4 IA IA is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by 1st Place Co., Ltd., headquartered in Meguro, Japan. They use Yamaha Corporation's Vocaloid 3 singing synthesizer technology. Her voice is sampled by Lia.

IA is my only favorite vocaloid because she has the most unique and realistic voice... And also her image is very different and catchy... (look at her innocent face! ) she is so cute and her dress? It is so futuristic! And look at her silver rapunzel hair... She is the only vocaloid with the galaxy eyes! Her movement is so smooth if you compared her to others.. They look like a robot when they dance... She is extraordinary, she deserve to be on top ten.. She is just new but she is already popular meaning there are many people that loves her voice very much! IA is awesome... When I listen to her voice, I feel like I am floating because of her powerful voice...

In my opinion, a lot of the votes for Hatsune Miku simply stem from the fact that she is the most recognizable Vocaloid. But, based on realism as well as the sheer quality of the voice, IA is undoubtedly the best Vocaloid in this regard. The timbre, tone and resonance of her voice emulates her voice provider so well that it's a wonder that she isn't given the recognition that she deserves. If you haven't done so already, listen to IA's cover of Tori no Uta or My Soul Your Beats, they'll blow your mind!

5 Megurine Luka Megurine Luka is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media, headquartered in Sapporo, Japan.

Megurine Luka has a very beautiful way of singing, her voice is strong and feminine, I am enchanted when listening to her songs.

Megurine Luka has been a part of my life for a VERY long time. I started listening to Vocaloid when I was in 6th grade. In 6th grade I was going through sever depression and anxiety. Luka helped with that. When I listen to most Vocaloid songs they give me a headache or they are just too loud and squeaky. I have an entire playlist of Luka songs on YouTube. The playlist is called "Sooth Sounds". I called it that because of her soothing voice that would actually help me sleep every night. Luka's songs have nice sounds and peaceful tuning. The lyrics to her songs would give me hope and give me the hope for another good day. I am in my first year of high school now and I listen to her every day for inspiration. The song No Logic really makes me see that the world can be confusing at times, but there is always a way to go when you feel sad or down. When I hear Gumi or even the Kagamine twins sing it's always depressing and dark which doesn't help at all. The high pitched noises make me feel very uncomfortable because it blasts through my eardrums and makes my chest hurt. Luka Megurine has a powerful voice that has healed me of depression up til this day.

6 Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku, sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune, is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media.

Hatsune Miku represents what Vocaloid is and embodies as a whole. She may be the most popular Vocaloid character but she definitely deserves it. Her range is incredible, her voice is perfect, her songs are meaningful. People don't vote for her out of being attractive or whatever, (Honestly, I think that Len's voice is quite nasally; don't kill me) they vote for her because she has defied being just a computer program or a synthesized voice; she is an idol.

I'm not being a blind Hatsune Miku lover here. I am saying Miku because of her voice quality. Unlike many Vocaloids, her pronunciation is clear and crisp (I'm not saying the ones that aren't are bad. For example, Gumi isn't always clear, but has an amazing voice. ) Her voice can handle many styles and pitches, and her songs come out beautifully. Many other Vocaloids that people compare to Miku may have a thicker or more beautiful voice, but they cannot compete to her voice quality. When she sings "mazeawasete, mazeawasete. ", it sounds like that. It doesn't sound like a mess of kinda-like-that-syllables. (I'm looking at you Rin and Len. ) I'm not bashing other Vocaloids. I love all of them. (Well, except Kaito on fast high songs. *shudders*) I honestly believe that Hatsune Miku has a beautiful voice.

7 Gackpoid (Kamui Gakupo)

Hatsune Miku is the first Vocaloid that I've heard, but she isn't the one who temped me to enter the world of Vocaloid fandom.

Until this Vocaloid exists in my life.

He's very difficult to tune to be honest, makes his songs sound choppy and muffled and everything else, but from his voice, I can hear the quality and somewhat the unique and manly that not most of other male Vocaloids can do. Well what can you expect less from GACKT?

I see most love KAITO and Len than every other male Vocaloids including Gaku, because of the marketing thanks to Crypton, and the design themselves are way cooler than Gaku.

But, in my opinion, their voice quality cannot beat Gakupo. Overall, yes, Gakupo can be beated by the character design, but its undeniable that he have the best voice quality of all male Vocaloids.

As a general thing, Gakupo Kamui's voice tends to sound better in original songs than other male vocaloids of his (its? ) ilk, such as Kaito. Not to mention, he has a wider range, with more options for songs, and though he's purportedly harder to work with, the results are well worth the listen.

8 Meiko MEIKO is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application called Vocaloid developed by Yamaha Corporation.

MEIKO....Her voice is very strong and looks very much like the "big woman" type. And her voice is also wonderful when she sings, even screaming her voice remains intact.

She is amazing if done right. She is an epic voice that can be adapted to any music and she is just so unique and isn't one of those sopranos all the time.
Her English is one of the most realistic and understandable.
Her power has so much emotion and realism and her vocal range can adapt to any song from pop to jazz or to rock any time.
Meiko haigo, her voice provider, sounds like meiko even though she is the first Japanese vocaloid and Haigo's personality is really sweet and even looks like meiko and obviously the name. This shows how much care went into her design but some people just ignore the effort and dislike it.

She's like a robotic angel! People look down on her because she sounds too robotic, but isn't that the point to VOCALOID? If you wanted something realistic, why are you listening to VOCALOID? MEIKO's voice is perfect because you can do literally anything. She can be a phychopathic Yandere, a sweet DereDere girl, a rough and intimidating delinquent, a mother, or even just a NORMAL girl. Hatsune Miku, no matter how much I love her, CANNOT do that.

9 Yuzuki Yukari Yuzuki Yukari (結月ゆかり) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed by Vocalomakets and distributed by AH-Software Co. Ltd.. She was initially released in December 2011 for the VOCALOID3 engine. She is also available as a VOICEROID+. In March 2015, she was updated to the VOCALOID4 engine and was given two additional voicebanks. Her voice is provided by the Japanese voice actress Chihiro Ishiguro (石黒千尋;... read more

I absolutely love Yuzuki-san, especially when she sings with Luka in Resurrection Trip, or MAYU in Hurting for a Very Hurtful Pain. Whatever the song I love her vocal range and style. I can't believe some people say her breathy and raspy-like voice is horrible, they're just too busy obsessing over Miku-chan and Luka-san. OPEN YOUR EYES. There are many more Vocaloids with unique voices and designs. You've just got to take the time and patience to listen to them.

Yukari's voice is really realistic and some people say that her breathy voice is horrible, but honestly I can see her breathy voice as a strength because when it fades out it adds some sort of emotional effect and gives you the chills.

If GUMI hadn't been on the list, I would've voted for Yukari. Her voice is lovely and mature, and even though it's a little breathy, I really like that. It gives me chills, and you can hear the emotion


Oliver is my favourite male Vocaloid, simply because of his unique voice quality.

Having been voiced by an English choir boy, he has an incredible range that older voices simply cannot achieve and so he gives writers a rare opportunity to work with a pure and angelic sounding voice.

Interestingly, the 'angelic' connotations of his choir boy voice actually give Oliver the ability to fit into both innocent and soft music as well as dark and haunting music. The only way I can think of to describe how it can work is by using the example of nursery rhymes, which sound cheerful when you sing them like you did on the playground but sound terrifying once you slow them down or learn about their origins. (Just look at Ring-a-ring-a-roses! )

But I digress...

I also find Oliver easy to work with but that is probably in large part to do with the fact that he is from my country and speaks my language so I found him easier to work with than say Megpoid, well until she had an English voicebank anyway...

In any case, I think he deserves more recognition.

The Contenders
11 KAITO KAITO is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Yamaha Corporation using their new Vocaloid singing synthesizer technology under the codename of "Taro".

With a range of nearly 5 octaves and a voice extremely sensitive to parameter changes, KAITO V1 is a *voice* to be reckoned with. His V3 is less strong in these regards, but still features an all - round vocal that many non - Vocaloid fans I know have described as ' beautiful, warm and pleasant ', so he certainly draws attention still. I think he should be recognized a little more for his capacities overall!

Kaito is absolutely amazing. He's probably the most realistic sounding Vocaloid, and sounds great and harmonizes well with anyone you put him in a song with. He's heavily underrated, and that fact kinda makes me sad. If he gets a Version Four, since his V1 was comparable to V3s, and his V3 has better English than Luka's V4, I can't even imagine how awesome it'll sound. Honestly, he needs a lot more love than Miku...

Kaitos my tots awesome he is my favorite because he's cute I love his voice and I feel pity for him. My favorite color has become blue due to kaitos awesome blue hair. love his outfit and voice. I am very opinionated so he's the only one that can be my favorite vocaloid. Sure I really like Len kagamine and megurine luka but not enough to take kaitos spot. My favorite songs of vocaloid are canterella, bad apple, ashes to ashes, like, dislike (kaitoxmiku), imatator, footsteps of time, the sun of the night sky, and finally the sword of truth (all sung by KAITO SHION, I highly doubt that any of the other vocaloids could sing them like he does. I feel his songs have very strong meanings behind them and I like those kind of songs.

12 SeeU

I don't really like Vocaloids to begin with and I don't have any of the actual software, however I do like SeeU a lot. Her voice is beautiful and rather calm unlike Miku who tends to make my ears bleed (NO ONE can sing that high pitched in real life) I also like her design. She is very cute and has actually normal colored hair unlike most of them. Miku should really just be taken down so some of the less popular Vocaloids can have a chance at being a pop star like Miku. She also is not completely self absorbed like Miku and Katio.

Her voice and style seem very lovely. She has different tones to her voice, moreover, it is lingering and mature. Although I am not much of a vocaloid fan (heck, I barely know ten of them), she is the one I like. As many before said, Miku's voice is very simple. I still enjoy quite a few of her songs.

I love Gumi, and I love IA, but I also love SeeU, and seeing her all the way down at 24 isn't fair at all. She can sing in Korean OR Japanese, which is great for Kpop and Jpop fans alike! I think people just like Miku simply because she's the most known and Vocaloid 3 isn't as popular as Vocaloid 2.
I've had I=Fantasy in my head all day.


13 VY1

Did you hear her v4 voice?
It's brilliant. VY1 has one of the most amazing voices in vocaloid. I love how her voice is so mature like others such as GUMI, or IA, or Yuzuki Yukari, and others. She is just so great at singing and it's so sad how she is not recognized by the fandom as much as other vocaloids have (I'm not saying that the others are worse or bad, I'm just putting the fact out there that there are many unrecognized vocaloids that sing just as well or even better than the main and more popular vocaloids.).

VY1 is just an amazing vocaloid with an amazing voice. If you haven't yet listened to her voice, you should. It is worth the time. If you already have, keep at the good work and spread the love for all the less popular vocaloids!

She just doesn't seem to have enough fans, sadly, for people to realize just how good VY1's voice is. For all you Hatsune Miku Fans: VY1 is higher-quality without the earsplitting pitches. Her songs sound purely human, which is a huge step in Vocaloid technology. It's easy to make out her words, and so far I haven't found a single Vocaloid she doesn't sound good with. Go Mizki!

14 Kaai Yuki Kaai Yuki is a child vocaloid character produced by AH-Software Co. Ltd and released originally for Vocaloid 2.

For a child, her voice is very beautiful, I appreciate Kaai Yuki's songs, so much so that before I knew the songs were hers, I thought they were from an older Vocaloid.

Even though she is voiced by a kid, and her mascot is a kid, yuki can sound pretty mature. Check out Inaba Cumori, they use her so well. But there is some songs that don't use her voice to well. "Shooting Star " is just not an good usage of her voice. I am also not a fan of her V2. On the other hand, V4 is so well thought out.

Her voice really fits her design so kawaii. She has a really cute, relaxing, soft voice and because of it the first time I listened to her I already fell inlove with her and she became my favorite vocaloid. She has a really cute and voice when singing english and japanese. Shes too underrated though I wish she was one of the top ones

15 v flower

I really LOVE VFlower's songs, both in versions with a more male-like voice and in a more feminine one, VFlower's songs are incredible...

Her voice is so cool! Especially in "better off worse" where she sounds amazing in English! Her deep voice is- I don't know I just really like flower (probably bc Abnormality dancing girl introduced me to vocaloid)

Honestly, her voice is very nice. People mainly look towards the more "popular" vocaloids, or maybe because they just sound more realistic. I just adore the way her voice sounds. The metallic ring in her tone isn't too much, nor too little. Her emotion is something that the listener can really gauge when listening to her music, even if she isn't an actual human being. That's what I love about her. The fact that she's in #20 is very disappointing, especially when I see the more popularly known vocaloids. Flower deserves more love guys, come on! ~

16 Iroha Nekomura

Her voice is like the all the most beautiful voices mixed together! So amazingly realistic. Her low vocal range can still remain young and still sound mature. It's such a pleasure to hear her sing, I always forget that she's a vocaloid. Usually I end up going for the Nico Nico chorus of other vocaloids, but I always listen to the original of Iroha's because she just that awesome.

I think Iroha Nekomura deserves to be more popular. Okay she has a low voice, but listen to her voice carefully and you'll discover that it actually sounds more mature and realistic than most. At first I listened to her songs I was in love! She won me over with her mature and steady voice.

She is probably my favorite Vocaloid, she is realistic, her falsetto is really good, and even more, her quality is better than a lot of VOCALOID3. Aside she is the most popular AH SOFTWARE's VOCALOID, she is really unpopular compared with the Cryptonloids and the Internet Co. Vocaloids. She deserve more love.

17 Aoki Lapis

... Lapis doesn't seem to be very popular with the fans (at least the ones I've seen), which I guess is fair, considering that she's a newer Vocaloid.
Since she's newer and a Vocaloid 3 she gets some of those perks, like more realistic voice.

She doesn't seem to be the best for songs like, say, iNSaNiTY. (But personally I like her cover of Love is War more then the original. )

If everyone likes Miku, Rin, and Luka, why don't they love Lapis? She has a Rin-like brightness with Miku's sweetness and Luka's consonants and amazing realness. And she's a V3, which makes her quality extraordinary! I love how she covers most songs, and for me, she just needs more attention.

A lot of Vocaloids like Miku and Rin are overrated because of their designs, and not their voices. Lapis has an extraordinary voice..,. Soft, but you can still understand her, sweet, smooth, and overall beautiful.

18 VY2

People dislike him because he...well, he can sound drunk. Even I thought that when I first listened to him. But now, I see him as very natural. I mean, come on, not every VOCALOID's going to be perfect. Yuuma is far from it! But I find his voice very endearing, and I think you might, too, if you listen carefully.

His voice is so unique from the other male vocaloids and yes even though there are a few problems with his voicebank it still is one of the better ones in my opinion. His range is better then most other males, seeing as he was created to be gender neutral, but sounds better with lower vocals.

VY2's voice sounds so realistic, soothing, young and sweet. It's easy to recognize his voice. His high notes don't break my ear. I love most of his songs and I just wish he has more songs of his own other than the covers.

19 Utatane Piko Utatane Piko is a Japanese speaking Vocaloid by Sony Entertainment for Vocaloid 2. He is based on the Japanese singer Piko.

It's a shame not many people know Piko, I've loved his voice since I first heard of him, favorite song has got to be his original song, "Remember". Try listening to his cover of Ura-Omote Lovers, you'll go head over heals in love with his voice. And once again, Miku is number 1... Sometimes I just don't get you people.
And will everyone stop with the 'this vocaloid sounds like this one plus this one'. I'm sick of it I tell you.

I feel so trolled by Piko... Why? That awkward moment when a boy sings better as a female than you. I just can't stop laughing when people mention the "Boku no Piko" joke! Whoo! Utatane Piko your voice is amazing, even if you share voices with the Nico Nico Singer Piko. I look at Piko as more of a shota than Len and Oliver. But when he sings "Spice", Piko is bringing sexy back

Piko has one of the most amazing voice ranges of all vocaloids. He can sing both high and low ranges fairly realistically, and his voice actor is also a professional singer. If he is used well, he can sound amazing.

20 Luo Tianyi

I was going to vote for Gumi or IA, I asmit it, but seeing Luo all the way down at #22 made me really sad. Her voice is very realistic, and she speaks Chinese and Japanese! Please consider listening to her songs, even though she isn't as popular as Miku or Rin. Not to mention her character design is as flawless as her voice.

Luo Tianyi's voice is literally amazing! People should chose wisely and not just chose the popular ones! Oh right.. It's all Hatsune Miku now...

Some very good songs. Unfortunately the Chinese vocaloids aren't as well known as Japan's.

21 Otomachi Una Otomachi Una, sometimes referred to as Una Otomachi, is a female Vocaloid created by Internet Co., Ltd and MTK Inc. She is voiced by Aimi Tanaka.

Otomachi Una has a vocal range like no other. She works in heavy songs, light songs, and even just talking! Seriously, listen to that cover of MELT. Never the same.

Her voice is good, she has an amazing talking voice, and probably the most creative design. I mean, who else has a jellyfish hat?

Ooh! Love her! Her voice is so cute! She is like a way more high quality miku who is way more adorable and better sounding!

22 Mayu MAYU is a female Vocaloid created by EXIT TUNES Co., Ltd. She generally has mixed reception. She is voiced by Mayumi Morinaga.

Yandere is always my favorite type. And Mayu has that type. Maybe people just forget her. Why do people always pay their attentions in some Vocaloids like Miku, Rin/Len, Gumi... ? There are also some really good other Vocaloids. IA and Yukari have the most realistic voices, Luka has a soft and sweet voice, KAITO has a warm voice and Mayu has an adorable voice. They are amazing too, it's just they don't get much attentions from fans

Mayu has the most adorable voice, and can be used in lots of different types of songs! She sounds very realistic, in my opinion! It's really adorable, and she deserves more attention! Of course, only her demo songs are out now, but she sounds amazing in them.

Mayu brings me a new taste of Vocaloid. I have to say that I love Miku, Luka, Rin and KAITO but really knowing Mayu, for me, is like a huge discovery. Her voice is so good. And I love her axe, her Yandere style and her gothic lolita dress

23 Hiyama Kiyoteru Hiyama Kiyoteru is a masculine vocaloid character produced by AH-Software Co. Ltd and released originally for Vocaloid 2. His voice is provided by Japanese male singer Kiyoshi Hiyama.

I think his voice is quite clear for the Japanese pronunciation I know he has plain design but his voice is great! Just, because the plain design makes him unpopular? Come on!

Yeah, for V2 era, his Japanese pronunciation is quite clear. Actually his low notes are good but people seems like to use hia high notes and makes his voice too high pitched. Oh, and I can't wait for hia update to Vocaloid4 engine.

Kiyoteru is amazing and just so underrated that it's annoying. He's almost totally perfect!

24 Lily Lily (リリィ) is a female Vocaloid created by Internet Co., Ltd., done in collaboration with Avex Management Co., Ltd and YAMAHA Corporation, and was initially released in August 2010 for the VOCALOID2 engine. There has since been a second installment developed for the VOCALOID3 engine and dubbed V3 Lily. She is voiced by the Japanese female singer, musician and performance artist, Yuri Masuda... read more

Lily's voice is very unique. It's very low and more human. Despite her accent, it is very easy to understand her English. I love her in fact she was the first Vocaloid I ever had. My favorite song from her is Lilyzm Gold but there is also a Version of Blood Teller that everyone should look into!

When used right, Lily is just AMAZING. Sadly her demo song did not show her full potential. I love Sky is the Limit, Reminiscence of Garnet, Niki songs, and so many more. She sounds very realistic, and she speaks well in English as well.

Lily is so realistic! I love her voice. She sounds like a real Japanese girl singing, but faster! She performs well.

25 Kizuna Akari

A voice similar to Yukari...

Akari has arrived

She is very cute.
