Is it Yanny or Laurel?

Is it Yanny or Laurel?

As if we needed another thing to divide America.

People hear different sounds in different pitches, which is why the internet can not decide which word the recording is saying.

On Wednesday, the Reddit user, whose post has polarized the internet, explained the audio is from Vocabulary.com of "Laurel."

Laurel or Yanny? Yanny or Laurel?

The debate rings similar to that of "the dress" from the early months of 2015.

Is it Yanny or Laurel?

Sports writer Ted Berg wrote "there's no way anyone could hear that as Yanny", and "anyone who says they do is lying for shock value". "It's not a very high quality. When the low frequencies are more emphasized, people will hear "Laurel"," Crum said.

That aside, Story ran an acoustic analysis on the viral recording of the computerized voice.

"I thought it must be a joke", wrote MagickMaggie, who initially heard "yanny".

If Grimes and Elon Musk broke the internet, Yanny and Laurel are here to absolutely demolish the remains.

OK, so what does that all mean? "You hear something, but the person fills in the blank with Yanny and one person fills in the blank with Laurel", he said.

Someone tried to adjust the bass, saying you could hear both that way, but...that's not true for everyone (at least not for us over here at HG headquarters). "They're like eight-year-old treehouse buddies with those cans on strings, gossiping about which girls they secretly paid off, or whether it's Yanny or Laurel", Noah said. To settle this debate (or to give our newsroom some piece of mind), abc7NY took to the streets of NY to ask what locals heard.
