    I've tried to hear anything that sounds remotely like Yanny, but can only hear Laurel.

    Yanny
    I actually heard Yanny AND Laurel at the same time, in both pitches - like two voices speaking at the same time, one high and one low. But I only heard that the first time it was said in the video. After that first time, I only hear Yanny, even when I make an effort to hear the Laurel, which I would have thought possible since I already heard it once. No dice. That's kinda weird.

    Yanny

    I hate it that some of you can't differentiate high frequencies.

    This is similar to people not being able to hear the difference between MP3 and High Resolution Audio.

    that is my layman's theory.

    you have excellent hearing and probably could be an audiophile if you aren't already.

    No kidding - it was actually covered on the local morning news this morning, lol. I wasn't really paying attention and they didn't play the actual recording I don't think, but it said something about what lolobugg is talking about. Supposedly more young people hear yanny because they are able to pick up a higher range of frequencies.

    Here are some possible explanations... none of them are at all concrete (some don't even really make all that much sense).

    Re the conclusion ... This must be why some people think DMB sounds awesome. =)

    Me too, but "Laurel" is what I naturally hear more easily. It's all just sound frequencies people!

    Laurel
    I heard this clip prior to knowing anything about it.  Heard Yanny, or something similar.  I then heard what the debate was, got confused and it was played again.  Since then all I heard is "Laurel".

    From afar when my wife played the clip on her tablet, I heard Yanny.

    When I actually listened to it with my full attention, I hear Laurel.

    You got good ears man. I knew it. For everyone Remember to listen to the original at the first of this thread. By now a lot of folks have doctored it just to fuck with people. Make sure u take the acid test correctly.
