Yanny or Laurel? Celebs Reveal What They Hear in This Audio!

People either hear 'Yanny' or 'Laurel' in this one clip and it’s tearing the whole damn internet apart

If you mess around with the pitch, you'll also maybe hear different sounds depending on how messed up your ears are. Others heard a higher-pitched male voice saying, "Yanny ..." I hear Laurel. How is it possible that people can hear one word or the other?

It wasn't just our newsroom, however. As of 4 p.m. "Laurel" was trending on Twitter, while "Yanny" was not.

The Verge did its best to figure out why this was happening, calling up a few scientists who listened to the recording and gave their best guesses.

Turn the volume up/down to hear each version.

I truly do not understand where Laurel comes from.

This is a clear victory for Team Yanny but still doesn't answer the question of what the hell is going on here. It sounds more like "Yaley" or "Yelley". It's a recording of a computerized voice saying one of the two names.

The debate rings similar to that of "the dress" from the early months of 2015. Much like the dress that came before it, the clip has sent thousands of Twitter users into a confounding tailspin of perception. "I feel like yannies are LYING FOR ATTENTION", she followed up. Now I'm a Laurel-lord and I can't go back.
