What do you hear? 'Yanny' vs 'Laurel' dividing the internet

Laurel or Yanny? This audio clip is driving the internet crazy

The internet was split Tuesday over an audio clip asking listeners to choose what name they heard.

Twitter user and vlogger Cloe Feldman has kicked off the world's most frustrating debate, uploading an audio recording of a robot saying a word.

Most people not only hear just one, but also insist that it can't possibly be the other.

Another denounced all Yanny-hearers: "I hear Laurel and everyone is a liar".

"My wife heard yanny". And then there are some people who claim to hear differently depending on the device we're using. The middle consonant is definitely not an n, Sanker said, but you might hear one because the vowel in front of it sounds particularly nasal. The one when people couldn't determine if a certain dress that went viral was black and blue or white and gold?

We chose to poll our Twitter audience to figure out what it hears. Yanny is but a distant dream once you enter the elysian fields of Laurel.

I, for instance, correctly hear "Laurel", spoken in a deep male voice with the diction of a seasoned radio announcer.

The voice saying "Laurel" is at a lower, bass-heavy frequency.

Just like that another social post has divided the internet, but this time in audio form. [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". Some say by adjusting the pitch of the recording, the word changes.
