'Laurel' or 'Yanny'? People can't decide but we may have the answer

'Laurel' or 'Yanny'? People can't decide but we may have the answer

People listening to the exact same recording hear totally different things.

That was the question Wednesday as a short audio clip sparked a social media debate about whether the word being heard is "yanny" or "laurel".

"I can't figure out how one would hear yanny". It's all due to Yanny-vs-Laurel Mania.

The viral tweet posted by Feldman was actually taken from a post on Reddit, as she has explained. Just three were caught in between - hearing first one, then the other when played again, or a mix of the two sounds. "If you lose the high frequencies, the illusion goes away".

"For example, with a full-range higher quality speaker, I clearly only hear laurel, but over my computer speakers, I clearly only hear yanny", Ricketts said.

According to sound experts who spoke with the website The Verge, the acoustic information that makes us hear "Yanny" is higher frequency than the acoustic information that makes us hear "Laurel". She said the complicated answer has to do with "resonance of the speech sounds". That's letting them hear "Laurel" loud and clear.

Next, listen to this clip, which is no longer noisy. Amid the background noise, you're able to focus on what your dining partner is saying.

"We all perceive the world a little differently based on our experiences", she says.
