Saw that this morning.

phone vs car
It's an interesting look into frequencies, overtones, and harmonics  
guitarguybs12 : 5/16/2018 12:28 pm : link
Guy on twitter separated out the higher/lower frequencies and shows how some people more sensitive to either will hear it differently.

I've heard it like 30 times and I can't even imagine someone hearing "Yanny"
yanny  
JoeMoney19 : 5/16/2018 12:34 pm : link
but I hear people discussing this as if it rhymes with Donny. It rhymes with nanny.
Phone and car say Laurel  
Mike in NY : 5/16/2018 12:35 pm : link
iPad says Yanny
Now that I have listened to it a few times  
Greg from LI : 5/16/2018 12:40 pm : link
I can hear it either way. My default is still yanny, but now that I read that laurel is a low tone, if I'm trying to hear it I can hear it.
I have no clue how anyone is hearing yanny  
Ryan in Albany : 5/16/2018 12:41 pm : link
Clearly Laurel.
Iíve heard both  
BigBlueDownTheShore : 5/16/2018 12:45 pm : link
On different devices. One time is was clearly laurel other times it was clearly yanny.

Same.
Listening to the clip on Twitter, on my laptop,  
81_Great_Dane : 5/16/2018 12:53 pm : link
with and without headphones, it's "Yanny" 100%. But then there's this YouTube, where I can hear both.

Use (good) headphones:

Hold the headphones a foot or so away from your ears while it's playing. You'll probably hear more "Yanny."

Put the headphones on. You'll hear "Laurel."
was gonna post this last night  
UESBLUE : 5/16/2018 1:02 pm : link
Yanny every time. Laurel? wtf is wrong with you lol?
I can't hear anything other than Laurel.  
Matt M. : 5/16/2018 1:07 pm : link
Not a trace of Yanny or anything else.

I do hear "Laurel" in the second part of this clip. I don't think we're avoiding the whole dress situation though, haha.

I still hear "Yanny" in every version of this guy's audio. Even when he tries to make it clearly sound like "Laurel".
My daughter hears a woman's voice ... whereas I clearly hear a man  
baadbill : 5/16/2018 1:14 pm : link
Also, I hear Laurel very clearly when I play it on my iPad. But I hear Yanny very clearly when I play it back on my laptop.
yanny  
dorgan : 5/16/2018 1:14 pm : link
and I'll fight any man that tells me it's laurel!

Interesting demonstration on pitch perception.

My headphones must suck ...still hearing Laurel.
The first time I clicked a link to listen  
pjcas18 : 5/16/2018 1:16 pm : link
to this I got rick rolled, so I haven't tried again.

No one likes being rick rolled, but twice on the same thing, not going to happen. LOL.

montanagiant : 5/16/2018 2:41 pm : link
It's actually " Yaurel"
I hear yanny  
djm : 5/16/2018 2:42 pm : link
Pretty clearly
I heard Yanny,  
Section331 : 5/16/2018 2:44 pm : link
but apparently, the word spoken is Laurel. I knew that when I listened to it, and I still heard Yanny. So much for the power of suggestion!
This twitter  
pjcas18 : 5/16/2018 2:50 pm : link
link isolates the frequencies pretty well so you can hear both. I lost most of the high frequency hearing a long time ago, so it's harder for me to hear yanni, but I do in the second half of this tweet/video

I hear Laurel  
Eli Wilson : 5/16/2018 2:52 pm : link
Although when I heard it on the news this morning, I heard Yanny.

Weird stuff.

That's what guitarguybs12 linked above, and the only audio where I can hear "Laurel", even others that purport to separate the frequencies.
I don't think so  
I Love Clams Casino : 5/16/2018 2:57 pm : link
this is BS...I don't think 2 people on the same electronic device, hearing the same sound file at the same time would hear 2 different things
I'm practically deaf so don't mind me  
jcn56 : 5/16/2018 2:59 pm : link
but is it wrong that I hear both? Clearly hear Laurel, with what sounds like a high pitched Yanny in the background?
Yanny  
AnnapolisMike : 5/16/2018 3:08 pm : link
Tried to hear Yanny...but can't
Laurel  
wigs in nyc : 5/16/2018 3:12 pm : link
but if I hold my headphones away from my head I can see where the "Yanny" comes from.
Both  
Tim in JTown : 5/16/2018 3:14 pm : link
Yanny first. But put your phone face down into your clothing so it needs to sound. Youíll hear Laurel

Same here. I only heard yanny at first, but now I can hear both.
Same as Greg...  
bw in dc : 5/16/2018 3:57 pm : link
Yanny was the first thing I heard, but then Laurel was also coming through.

I thought I was hearing Jints Central, too. But that was likely because I was scanning BBI at the time... ;)
How  
JoeMoney19 : 5/16/2018 4:35 pm : link
can you hear two things at once?
Laurel  
BigBlue4You09 : 5/16/2018 7:16 pm : link
All I hear is Laurel, clearly
Crazy that each group  
section125 : 5/16/2018 7:30 pm : link
hears this differently with no middle ground.

Now I wonder what is really being said (not laurel and not yanny). Maybe it is something completely different???
I was Yanny all along..  
Sean : 5/16/2018 8:10 pm : link
Now Iím hearing Laurel.
My daughter says that she can clearly hear both  
dreadedrummer : 5/16/2018 8:25 pm : link
Laurel and Yanny at the same time, her hearing must be amazing!

With my ear buds in  
Scott in Montreal : 5/16/2018 9:57 pm : link
I hear Laurel

When I listen through my laptop speakers it is Yanny.
I heard both ....  
Beer Man : 5/17/2018 8:20 am : link
Laurel when it came on the news and I was across the room, Yanny when I was right in front of the TV.
and the real answer is...  
UESBLUE : 5/17/2018 8:26 am : link
LAUREL!!!

Sorry, Team Yanny, but multiple news outlets have confirmed that the infamous audio clip comes from Vocabulary.com, where it serves as the pronunciation feature for the word ďlaurel,Ē defined as ďa wreath worn on the head, usually as a symbol of victory.Ē

It's Laurel  
Mr. Nickels : 5/17/2018 2:02 pm : link
Go get your hearing checked
Saw a tweet on TV this morning, saying in effect  
Bill in UT : 5/17/2018 3:58 pm : link
I couldn't hear sh^t- Marlee Matlin

The news folks had no idea who she was, that was the funniest part.
I've heard it on 2 different sources  
Bill in UT : 5/17/2018 6:40 pm : link
and heard 1 Laurel and 1 Yanni
