'Laurel' or 'yanny'?: Viral 4-second audio clip is dividing the internet

'Laurel' or 'yanny'?: Viral 4-second audio clip is dividing the internet

To cut right to the chase, here's the recording, as shared on Twitter by influencer and designer Cloe Feldman. Some people think the word is "Yanny", while others hear "Laurel". "I hear laurel", wrote Ryan Switzer. This voice is either saying the word "laurel" or "yanny" - and no one can agree which it is. "What's the science behind that?"

While some people are clearly hearing one word, there are many people who say they eventually hear the other word after listening over and over again. "They are saying they hear "yanny" because they want attention...." another chimed in.

"Watched this for 5 min and heard yanny...watched it 5 min later and I hear laurel".




David Monahan said the audio clip "was Yanny when I listened on my computer and Laurel on my phone..."

It's the new "the dress": A four-second audio clip has triggered a heated debate on the internet.

The internet has brought us the next thing to fight over, and it doesn't involve debating the color of a dress.
