    So the past 15 minutes my wife and sons are trying to convince me that it's clearly yanny. ..and they're thinking I'm joking by saying it's laurel .

    I can actually hear both but yanny is very much a background whisper. Laurel is more dominant.

    it will be a frequency thing.. i think (or maybe I dont?)

    different people hear different frequencies better, but also different devices or speakers play frequencies differently..

    my dumb analysis :biggrin:

    listened to it first on laptop w/cheap headphones
    Just now listened on smartfone

    the "L" la-la-la sound isn't clear on either...it's kind of "smudged", for lack of a better term
    and is more similar sounding to "lyrural " .....and if not reading "laurel" in print first, might think Ural Mountains
    Phone had more "smudge" at word beginning ...more shhhhhissss white noise (maybe cheap speaker??)

    I can hear no "Anny" Bell with either though

    if anyone hears "Yanny"
    is the "A" like "yawn" or Ann?
