What Do You Hear: Yanny or Laurel?

Well, there’s a new social media debate, but this time, we have to listen to something, not look at it.

This was posted to Twitter, and now the internet is arguing about what word they hear: Yanny or Laurel.


Now I totally hear Yanny, but experts that have picked the waveform apart say it resembles the waveform for the word Laurel. The crazy thing is when I listen to this news clip, I hear Laurel!

Also, when I sped the word up in the studio, it sounded like Laurel.

Here’s another video explaining the phenomenon, and in THIS video, I hear YANNY!! ARGH!!!

I’m so confused! What do you hear?
