'Laurel' or 'Yanny'? The audio clip the internet refuses to agree on

It's the new "the dress": A four-second audio clip has triggered a heated debate on the internet.

Social media influencer and vlogger Cloe Feldman posted a video to Twitter that's confusing everyone!

The question is seemingly a straightforward one: Do you hear Yanny or Laurel?

But what if two people are both listening through the same speaker and hear different things?

It was three years ago when netizens lost their mind after a controversial "gold/blue dress" surfaced on the Internet.

Either way, it's pretty insane that the person sitting beside you might be hearing something completely different than you hear! If you heard Yanny, you probably can not fathom how someone else heard Laurel and vice versa. That may be why younger people around you may hear "Yanny", while others hear "Laurel". People in the room disagreed about what they were hearing.

Several researchers agreed that the audio recording is just too ambiguous.

What do you hear?

One Twitter user proved this by adjusting the bass levels of the original recording.

However, this doesn't explain why someone would hear the lower frequencies and some hear the higher frequencies in the first place. What could alter what you hear are your headphones or audio equipment.

Headphones and speakers can also play a role in this, depending on the quality of the set, or if they are tinny. He explained that differently shaped ears focus sounds differently.
