Yanny or Laurel: How To Hear Both Of The Sounds

Yanny or Laurel: How To Hear Both Of The Sounds

Try not to be shocked when you learn the composer hears "Yanny".

Feldman admitted that she found the clip on Reddit. "It is the Vocabulary.com audio", user RolandCamry said.

Although that clip clearly says Laurel, apparently there are people out there who hear Yanny, so that's where we are right now.

It will depend on the type of speakers you hear it on, and what range of frequencies your ears pick up. Sure, we guessed it had something to do with subtle differences in sensory capability, which eventually explained why people saw "the dress" differently.

Szabo had been working on a school project, looked up the word, played the recording - and those who heard it couldn't agree, the The New York Times reported.

The first two formants, F1 and F2, are instrumental in being able to tell the different vowels apart. Completely ignoring the spectral power in the "middle" frequencies.

The debate: Is the voice saying "Yanny" or "Laurel"?

When we pay close attention to some frequencies (particularly lower ones), we hear "Laurel", and when we pay attention to the higher frequencies, we hear "Yanny".

The video followed up his previous Yanny-versus-Laurel tweet, which was accompanied by a great gif of himself.

The scientific explanation centers more on the quality of the recording and the resonance of speech sounds. Bumped up, it sounds like Laurel.

The audio clip bends the question to what is heard, rather than what is seen, and people are fired up about it. If you take just the top portion, this is what it sounds like: "Yanny, Yanny". "Kind of like how words are made up of letters, spoken words are made up of phoneme categories".

Audiologists say people are divided on what they hear because of several cognitive processes that the brain uses to give meaning to sound.

"There are two different sounds on top of each other, and it was really dependent on what you heard".
