Recently, Cloe Feldman posted an audio clip of someone saying Yanny/Laurel. People are saying its the audio version of the dress. Different people claim to hear one or the other and sometimes both. If you copy this link, https://www.vox.com/2018/5/15/17357684/yanny-or-laurel-audio you can listen to it. Comment down below and say what you heard.

If you get to this link, scroll down, and hear the original post from twitter (it won’t open up twitter). If you scroll down even further, you can listen to the same clip just someone pitch-shifted the audio. Now, comment down below in this format for what you hear. It’s making me crazy! I want to know what others hear but I can’t. I asked someone (won’t say who) and they said they heard “yanny”. I wonder what it is like for them but I will never know.

Person 1:
Original: Yarry (combination of both)
Down 30%: Yarry
Down 20%: Yarry
Up 20%: Laurel
Up 30%: Laurel
Up 40%: Laurel

It’s really interesting how different people can hear different things from the exact same noise.

It’s just like colors. Have you ever thought about how other people see colors and if one color looks different to one person than to someone else but they have been taught that whatever they might actually see it’s green. For example, a tree. It’s green. But what do people actually see? They have been taught that that color is green but they might actually be seeing what someone else might call orange. Weird, huh? Don’t give too much thought on that though. It will confuse you and curiosity will kill you about what others actually see.
