It's Laurel dang it!! UGH! :) So There's this audio clip going around where a computer-generated voice says one word. And the word is either Yanny....or Laurel. People are going crazy arguing over which is right.
According to a poll on Buzzfeed, 50% of people said they heard Yanny . . . 36% heard Laurel . . . and 13% could hear both.
So what's going on? Apparently it all has to do with the audio frequencies.
Younger people are more likely to hear "yanny," because that's what's coming through in higher frequencies that they can still hear. You're also more likely to hear "yanny" in bad speakers, because they don't handle lower frequencies so well.
