'Laurel' or 'yanny'?: Viral 4-second audio clip is dividing the internet

16 May 2018

Twitter user Cloe Feldman first posted the clip online Monday night.

A user on Reddit shared the clip a few days ago, and people on the internet have been arguing over what they hear. [Editor's note: It was not in unison.] The pair each tried a number of headphones ranging from nice to incredibly crappy and still heard only "Laurel". "How is it possible that people can hear one word or the other?" Plz send help and also tell us what you hear in the comments down below.

Moreover, some people have added to the confusion by somehow saying they can hear both.

They speculate that there are two separate voices in the recording, one saying "Laurel" at a lower frequency and the other saying "Yanny" at a higher frequency. "Yanny" can clearly be heard when the pitch is lowered, and "Laurel" can be heard when the pitch is raised.
