People Are Going Crazy Over Whether a New Audio Clip Is Saying “Yanny” or “Laurel”

On Monday night, a fashion designer named Cloe Feldman tweeted out a video where a computer-generated voice says one word.

 

The word is either Yanny . . . or Laurel.

 

People are going crazy arguing over which is right.

 

Seriously. Some people hear “Yanny” and some people hear “Laurel.”

 

Some even hear both . . . I heard “Yanny” when I listened to it through the speaker on my phone, but Ferne heard “Laurel”

.

And according to a poll on Buzzfeed, 50% of people said they heard Yanny . . . 36% heard Laurel . . . and 13% could hear both.

 

So what’s going on?

 

Apparently it all has to do with the audio frequencies.

 

Younger people are more likely to hear “yanny,” because that’s what’s coming through in higher frequencies that they can still hear.

 

You’re also more likely to hear “yanny” in bad speakers, because they don’t handle lower frequencies so well.

 

But with good headphones, you’ll probably hear “Laurel”.

 

What do you hear?
