Yanny v Laurel

May 20, 2018

The internet has been thrown into a meltdown over an audio clip which is dividing the opinions of listeners.

The clip – which has gone viral online – leaves some people convinced they have heard the word “Yanny”, while others are adamant that it says “Laurel”.

What do you think?

I CAN HEAR BOTH when you turn up the pitch 30% you can hear laurel but if you turn down the pitch 30% you can hear Yanny, they made this video by just over lapping sounds. So no mater what you hear your right.

You can hear both depending on what you want to hear. Say Yanny in your head and you get Yanny. Say Laurel in your head and you get Laurel. (Works if you try it a few times)
