Go on then, let's do this:

I'm Team Laurel. There's a good breakdown here:

I can hear yanny when he removes the lower frequency, but only on good quality earphones, not on crappy laptop speakers.

Did this this morning. I hear Laurel very clearly, both my eldest daughter (7) and wife hear Yanny just as clearly.

In the Guardian report they link people's age to hearing sounds in a lower register therefore the older you are the more likely you are to hear Laurel, however my limited experimentation leads me to think women process sounds at a higher register than men.

I'm 33 and hear laurel, two other people at work younger than me also hear laurel, and the three people at work who hear yanny are all 10 to 20 years older than me. It makes no sense to me. :lol: Also the male/female split in that tiny sample is split 50/50 (i.e. each answer has two men and one woman).

It's pretty freaky. I'm not even close to perceiving the y or n sounds that would produce the alternative word, neither of which is close (you would have said) to an l or r sound. There's no slurring or indistinct pronunciation... it's as clear as a bell.

Actually, both my wife and daughter first heard it as Yammy, before I turned the screen so they could see the clip with the words displayed.

How weird.

It's not quite the same thing; my understanding is that the audio clip has both words in it but played at different frequencies.

I also hear Yanny.

Listened to it in work earlier and I heard Laurel super clearly, just listened to the one from the link above now (at home) and it's Yanny. Think maybe it has something to do with background noise maybe?
