Yanny or Laurel: It Sounds a Lot Like the Dress

Help us settle the debate. What do you hear? Laurel or Yanny? Source Clow Feldman Twitter

The word being spoken isn't quite yanny or laurel, says Brown University phonetician Chelsea Sanker. Plz send help and also tell us what you hear in the comments down below. Because as you may have guessed, not everyone hears the same thing when they listen to this cursed piece of audio.

Chrissy Teigen, the unofficial queen of Twitter, has officially weighed in on the debate. "How is it possible that people can hear one word or the other?"

A four-second audio clip has triggered a huge divide on the internet. "It clear as day says laurel". "When I pull out all the low frequencies, you can hear a high-pitched, robotic-sounding voice and that's the 'Yanny, '" he explained. You can play around with the pitch yourself to see how the audio can be bent toward Laurel or Yanny.

It has to do with the bass frequencies not being perceived as loud at lower volumes. "I can't even figure out how one would hear yanny", she wrote.

That explanation was roundly dismissed by many on Twitter, however a select few claimed they managed to hear both Yanny and Laurel. Do you know why?
