    Hey Meep!

    Today I heard an interesting audio clip that is similar the the Gold & White or Black & Blue dress debate, and I wanted to share it with you all.

    See whether you hear "Yanny" or "Laurel" in the attached video. Or perhaps you hear something else?

    I hear Laurel until the video is either sped up or slowed down, then I hear Yanny. However my 4 year old daughter alternates between hearing both :eek:

    I have a feeling this video is gonna turn into the same issue we had three years ago with the White and Gold / Blue and Black dress.

    i watched a video on this, quite interesting, in the video the narrator says that people with 'older' ears tend to hear Laurel whereas 'younger' would hear Yanny

    It already has.

    It’s yanny. If you hear laurel your trolling and spamming, please get off this thread.

    EDIT: I hear both now.

    Laurel or Yanny? A fact-checker’s guide
    "Brad Story, a professor of speech, language and hearing sciences at the University of Arizona, sent PolitiFact a file with visualizations that explain why he believes the original recording was likely saying "Laurel."

    According to Story, the original recording included "primary acoustic features" for the letters "l" and "r."


    The higher quality audio device you listen to the sound on the more you should hear Laurel. On my earpods I hear yanny but on my gaming headset I hear Laurel.

    I kinda hear Laurel, but for some reason in a robotic voice.
