Larynx (voice box)

Location of larynx (voice box) in neck, with top-view detail of voice box, vocal cords, and windpipe

The voice box (larynx) is located in the neck, just above the windpipe (trachea). The two vocal cords in the larynx are covered with a mucous membrane. When air passes through the vocal cords, they vibrate and produce sound.
