DO you hear “Yanny” or “Laurel”?

An audio clip posted to Twitter has social media users locked in fierce debate, with many comparing it to the infamous “blue/gold dress” from 2015. “What do you hear?!” wrote fashion designer Cloe Feldman. “I hear Yanny.”

The clip, posted on Tuesday night, has been retweeted more than 60,000 times and more than 30,000 people have commented on the thread. And the internet is divided with half of users apparently hearing “Laurel”, and the other half hearing what it actually says, which is clearly “Yanny”.

Absolutely "Yanny."


I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

STUPID  what do you hear???  Too many variables in the reproduction of a digital stream, affected by the personal settings of the audio controls on your device.   Who cares??
