Shouldn't your A#4 be a Bb4?

E5, Eb5.

I've listened to all their stuff, (a ton of live performances across the last 5 years). Baritenor.

it's acceptable, as long as she doesn't put C♭instead of B or E♯ meaning F or strange things like that, although I prefer more the standard names as C ♯ instead of D♭

lol why is he listed as a baritone?  just cause he's tone deaf doesn't mean you gotta do him a disservice

in all honesty he's just a very bad tenor -- like he's a fucking terrible singer. they even got him a guitar to hold onstage so he can seem like he's doing something musically inclined since he's otherwise so useless

Yeah, you're kind of right. I don't know, though. They write nothing but shitty songs for them, he can barely develop something by himself. I'd like to see him do more shit so I could properly evaluate him, but well. Whatever. Probably not worth it.

He sounds like crap so it's hard to tell his voice type exactly.

He sounds like he could go either way. If he sung better then we would know for sure. I feel like he's faking a brightness to his voice by squeezing out the sound, which could mean he's a baritone. If he's not faking, then he could well be a baritenor or tenor.

I've heard him go as low as a G2 on some interview, pretty sure. I'd have to look. He's got a pretty flexible voice, but again, we can't know for sure. Anybody willing to analyze 1D's fourth album?

It really is hard to tell. I wouldn't argue with changing it to baritenor though.

Too soft and easy chested A4s, with hardly any depht. At LEAST a Baritenor. Specially if you're arguing if Styles is a tenor(Grounded baritone).

Styles is definitely a baritone now. Also, that wasn't a pure chest A4 by Niall. We can just agree on baritenor.

held back air, didn't get into head, mixed or falsetto. But yeah, Baritenor is the obvious resolution.

It was definitely a clean full mixed voice on the A4. You can hear the resonance shift.

With his silly tone it's hard to tell, you're probably right though.

But interviews speaking notes don't count on range, even Justin Timberlake uses G2 when he is speaking

But anyway, I heard Niall clips and to me he sounds more baritonish than for example Brian McFadden. And Ronan Keating even more tenorish than Brian

Really? When I hear him speak I sometimes feel like he's even more tenorish than Zayn (Who is one heck of a tenor).

Yes, Niall speaks as a tenor. Clearly.
Singing is different, I'm not sure about his singing voice, I'm not much into the band

He cracks and strains when he talks half the time. His speaking voice is not a good indicator at all.

His speaking voice seems a bit high for a baritone though?
