Tigers Players Debate Whether Sound Says Laurel or Yanny

Tigers Players Debate Whether Sound Says Laurel or Yanny

First, a black and blue dress - or was it white and gold? - dress divided the internet.

Here at the Chief, of the six people who've heard the audio, four people hear "Yanny", while one person hears "Laurel".

The clip, which surfaced on Reddit and later on Twitter, has friends, families and coworkers bickering over who has bad hearing.

That's right. The question comes from an audio clip which you've probably heard coming out of a speaker or phone in the past couple days.

McCreery, an auditory scientist, explained the phenomenon. Why would people hear two totally different words? She said she heard laurel.

Paddy Power Betfair in talks to buy Fanduel

"And if you throw things off a little bit, in terms of it being somewhat unnatural, then it is possible to fool that perceptual system and our interpretation of it", says Story. "However, there is a significant difference in the second and third resonances of the two words, which is how humans interpret the words", she said.

I asked, but no word on what he actually hears.

Think of it like dinner at a busy restaurant, McCreery said. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted everything at her show stopped to see what people heard.

Next, listen to this clip, which is no longer noisy.

When McCreery was at home, listening on his phone, he clearly heard "Laurel". But when he got to the office Tuesday morning, he heard "Yanny" on his computer. Both words share a U-shaped pattern, though they correspond to different sets of frequencies that the vocal tract produces, Story explains. If you have hearing loss, it could affect a particular frequency, allowing you to hear only one of the two variations. But others have said it's just a simple case of bass versus treble: If you happen to pick up bass tones more, you hear "Laurel". Primary information that would be present in a high quality recording or in person is "weakened or attenuated", Story says, even as the brain is eagerly looking for patterns to interpret.

Some internet dwellers have said the clip originated on vocabulary.com for the definition of laurel.
