Many Twitter users replied saying that they could only hear "Yanny", while those on the "Laurel" camp insisted the same.
If you turn down the volume, your speakers or headphones will then adjust by reducing the bass, potentially allowing you to hear "Yanny". "Both sides have a very good point". A number of individuals, like Twitter user Steve Pomeroy, manipulated the voice's pitch to an attempt to get different sound results. It's four seconds long. Because as you may have guessed, not everyone hears the same thing when they listen to this cursed piece of audio.
We chose to poll our Twitter audience to figure out what it hears.
"It's so clearly laurel".
But that doesn't necessarily explain why someone would hear the lower or higher frequencies.
What in the world?!
Just like that another social post has divided the internet, but this time in audio form. A similar confusion is back, but this time people are trying to decide whether this viral audio file says Laurel or Yanny. And by adjusting it down, "Laurel" people end up hearing "Yanny".
Like most of the internet's confounding illusions, this one appears to have started on Reddit - specifically, a subreddit dedicated to "black magic f*ckery".
If the unusual, robotic voice was saying names of Quebec births, it would nearly certainly be saying "Laurel".
