This Audio Clip Has People Divided Over What They Hear
It's taken more than three years, but we finally have a truly worthy successor to the white/gold or black/blue dress. What do you hear in this clip?
Fashion designer Cloe Feldman tweeted out a video of a computer-generated voice that says one word. The word is either "Yanny" or "Laurel." People are going crazy arguing over which is right. It's that damn dress all over again.
Some people hear "Yanny" and some people hear "Laurel." Some even hear both, they say it depends on whether they heard it through headphones or their phone speaker.
So what's going on? It all has to do with the audio frequencies.
Younger people are more likely to hear "Yanny," because that's what's coming through in higher frequencies that they can still hear. You're also more likely to hear "Yanny" in bad speakers, because they don't handle lower frequencies so well.
With good headphones, you'll probably hear "Laurel" which is what the voice is actually saying.
