Laurel or Yanny? This audio clip is driving the internet insane

Yanny vs Laurel

We asked a few of our colleagues and interestingly, just like the Twitterverse, half of them heard Laurel and the rest Yanny. In the clip, a voice can be heard repeating one word. but is it Laurel or is it Yanny?

The reason Yanny or Laurel is the rightful heir to the horror of the blue and gold dress is that people find it nearly impossible to understand HOW anyone could hear the opposite word. "You would have noticed it had both the names appearing on the screen with no other context or information".

Remember in February 2015 when "The Dress" captivated the internet?

University of Arizona professor Brad Story shows that the original audio is most likely saying "Laurel".

For example, I honestly believe anyone who hears "Yanny" might be a sociopath.

After being posted on Reddit, the clip spread across the internet with celebrities disagreeing over what they could hear. "It is a compelling illusion and you can hear both those sounds either way".

While we think it 100% says "Laurel" loud and clear, plenty of Twitter users think otherwise. "If you remove the high frequencies, you hear Laurel".

The acoustic frequency associated with Yanny is high, and with Laurel, low. The tweet has received over 57,000 likes, 25,000 retweets and more than 13,000 comments at the time of publishing this article.
