2018’s version of #TheDress? #YannyVsLaurel, or a better hashtag we haven’t seen yet.
Because the internet loves anything that will cause mass division, Twitter users are LOSING IT over this audio recording shared by Chloe Feldman that either says “Yanny” or “Laurel.”
Listen for yourself:
After a few plays, the obvious choice is “Yanny.” But some sharp-eared users pointed out that listening for the lower register yields in hearing the “Laurel.”
Basically, you can either hear a higher, nasally “Yanny” or a lower, robotic “Laurel” — if you have super-ears, that is! Most users could NOT hear the other option.
Read some reactions (below) and share what YOU heard in the comments!

Interesting. I hear “Yanny.”
The sound isn’t even close to “Laurel”…I do not hear the “r” 😨

If you pick up on the higher pitch it’s Yanny amd the lower pitch is Laurel. I heard Yanny 10 times before I could hear Laurel.

We could go on, but you get the picture. The recording, however, remains unsolved!
