Laurel vs. Yanny

The new viral social discussion of an audio recording saying Yanny or Laurel is sweeping the web. In this case I’m going with Yanny. It seems to be clear in my ears.

Yanny or Yanni, your call.

  1. Depending on the source and the local sound settings, I can actually hear both. On the tweet where I first heard it, I heard “Laurel”, but on The Wendy Williams Show this morning, they played the same recording and I heard “Yanny”. So there are a variety of factors going into what you hear, both externally (in your speakers 🔊) and internally (in your brain 🧠).
