Laurel or Yanny? This audio clip is driving the internet crazy

There's an audio clip going around the internet that is causing people to hear "Yanny" or "Laurel". "I hear laurel", wrote Ryan Switzer.

An audio file of a robotic voice saying a word has some people hearing "Yanny" and others hearing "Laurel". "What's the science behind that?"

Apparently, playing with the bass levels can help you hear both pronunciations.

Nobody can tell if this recording says "Yanny" or "Laurel".


"Yanny.... I listened 10 times and cant figure out how anyone hears laurel", one person Tweeted.

Moreover, some people have added to the confusion by somehow saying they can hear both.

I'm assuming they combined the high frequencies of "Yanny" with the lower frequencies of "Laurel" (with some overlap), and the two words are phonetically similar enough for this to work.

It's the new "the dress": A four-second audio clip has triggered a heated debate on the internet. Some of your friends saw a white and gold dress (umm, what?) while you saw blue and black.
