LISTEN: Do You Hear Laurel or Yanny?

There’s a new video going around that’s driving the internet crazy!  Something similar to the, “is the dress gold and white or blue and black?”  But this time it’s all in what you HEAR.

There’s a sound clip of a voice saying either “yanny” or “laurel” and it’s driving people insane!

So, what’s really happening?  In some ways, everyone is a winner here. In the recording, two separate voices are saying the names “Yanny” and “Laurel” at the same time.

So why do we all hear different things? Reddit users have their theory that it all comes down to frequency.

The voice saying “Laurel” is at a lower, bass-heavy frequency. If you play the recording on a high volume, ideally over speakers, you’re more likely to hear the voice say “Laurel.” The voice saying “Yanny,” on the other hand, is at a higher frequency, which means you are more likely to hear it on a lower volume, sans bass reverberation.

What do YOU hear???
