I heard "yanny" first but then I started to focus on it more and "laurel" became clearer and clearer. I can't even hear "yanny" anymore.

I can hear both on this recording. Could only hear laurel before. Hold your phone far away and you'll probably hear yanny easier, hold it right up to your ear and you'll probably hear laurel. This is very fascinating.

there needs to be a survey, where the people don't know the two options "laurel" and "yanny", and i promise you it'll be "laurel".

All I could hear was Yanny on my phone but when I heard it played back on the radio in my car this morning all I could hear was Laurel. Couldn't force myself to hear Yanny at all.

The thing is that the people here saying it's Yanny are telling me they are hearing a higher pitched voice. I hear a deep male voice saying Laurel

I read that if you can hear higher frequencies, you will most likely hear Yanny.

What the fuck, 6 people with me all hear Yammy.

I used that tool and can only hear Yammy when it's all the way to the right.

Too much loud music made us all deaf.

I can hear Yanny when using the NYTimes link, but honestly it just sounds more like a distorted, slowed down Laurel. Whoever hears Yanny is listening to it out of some old ass Sidekick II speakers.

I heard Yanny the first time I heard that clip. I couldn't even understand how it was supposed to sound like Laurel. Now listening to that exact same clip on the same device, and multiple different versions of the clip, I can only hear Laurel. What the fuck is this

I hear nothing but yanny. With that NYT link I can hear laurel when I throw it all the way to the left and little bit if I taper it to the middle but from the middle on I get nothing but yanny and when I work my way back I can't hear laurel until I'm far all the way to the left again. I've listened on three different speakers and it is naturally yanny to me. Actually, what I hear almost sounds like Jeremy haha

My wife and her sister hear laurel, me and my mother-in-law hear yanny. from what i've read the recording was taken from dictionary.com and the word is laurel but the shitty recording makes it sound like yanny to some since people hear frequencies differently. pretty trippy.
