Men have larger vocal chords and thus the thyroid cartilage (or Adam’s apple) is more pronounced in the neck.
While both males and females both have Adams apples, which is a portion of bony cartilage that wraps around the larynx, tends to be larger in men because they have larger voice boxes; which explains why many of these men have deeper toned voices.
Boys during puberty have their voice boxes grow larger due to testosterone, this is the reason boys’ voices “crack” at this age. This leaves their thyroid cartilage more pronounced, as the two commenters above me have pointed out.
