It clearly says Yanny, it kinda blows my mind that that anyone hears it any different, even though I know it's supposed to be Laurel.

Yep, like I said I know what it's supposed to say but I don't hear it any other way. A buddy of mine says he hears yanny on his phone but he heard it on the radio and he heard Laurel. I've had it played on different devices from different distances and it's always yanny to me.

This might help you out.



I even tried it myself using Adobe Soundbooth on the original audio file, and it works.

My wife played it from afar (I was in the kitchen, she was in the living room) and heard yanny. Granted, the tv was also on, so I couldn't hear it very well. When I sat down and listened to it through my headphones it was laurel clear as day.

This would explain it. Some folks ears pick up on different frequencies better (or worse)

Yeah that's more or less the reason behind the discrepancy that I've read and seen from audio experts. Some people are either wired to put focus on the certain pitches or they have minor hearing loss, in which case the higher pitch is difficult to hear.

It depends on which frequency you can pick up more easily. I dont hear yanny at all but my wife and kids do.

I am in your boat and hear Yanny unless the frequency is pitched up higher.

If I say, I know you hear it as Yanny, but I want you to sit here and listen to Laurel, I think most people can hear it either way, he says. Its a conflict between our first gut reaction and the fact that there is another interpretation, but its inconvenient to do that work.
In addition to your brain's unique interpretation of the clip, whether you hear Laurel or Yanny also depends on your ability to hear high and low frequencies. Like Teigen told Kaling, Theyre saying younger, more beautiful people hear yanny!!!!!" And she might be onto something.

Inside your ears are small sensors called hair cells. They pick up on sound waves and send them to the brain, Vaughn says. "If you lose all your hair cells you cant hear. Noise exposure can damage these hair cells, and they don't grow back.
Vaughn speculates that people who are older and have fewer hair cells are more likely to hear Laurel because they cant hear the higher frequencies of Yanny. We know that other animals on the planet specialize in hearing different frequencies," he says. "Some birds only hear high frequencies, and whales hear low-frequency content. Its not a stretch that some people pay more attention to high frequencies. The frequencies in the viral clip are extreme, he adds: Most of us are used to hearing more mid-range frequencies, which could make it even trickier to tell if it's Laurel or Yanny.
