Laurel or'yanny'? Viral 4-second audio clip is dividing the internet More
It has been a few years since a certain black-and-blue (or, fine, white-and-gold) dress tore the internet apart. Now, there's an audio version that's dividing us from our friends and families.
A Reddit user posted the clip of a robot reading the word. As such, it was quickly compared to 2015's social media sensation #TheDress, which saw entire families torn apart and houses divided.
When a sound is not quite one thing and not quite another, the brain will shift it into a category.
Some people claim to hearboth at different times, only adding to the confusion.
Even audiologists think this is cool. "So in this case, if you're primed for "Laurel" or 'Yanny, ' number one, you're going to know it's going to be one of those two, then it kinds of depends on how your perceptual system locks on to one of those cues". And how come we are hearing such different words?
An audio expert told CNN that the anomaly is due to the poor quality of the recording, as well as what device people are using to listen to the recording.
'Yanny' or 'Laurel'? This Viral Audio Clip Has People Tripping Out
There appears to be two types of people in the world. Because the phrase "yanny" resonates at a higher frequency than "laurel", you might be more likely to hear "laurel" if you have some high-frequency hearing loss, for example.
If one element of sound is lost, others can fill it in so the meaning is conveyed.
First, what youhear is a product of many variables - whether you're "primed" to hear one word or the other, the shape of your ear canals, maybe even your age or where you live.
The question that remains unasked and thus unanswered is: Do half of us hearYanny, and half of us Laurel, because of our assumptions about the speaker or the environmental sound conditions?
Now a new sound recording has surfaced, and it's got people at odds over what's being said.
The snippet spawned a huge debate on social media Tuesday, and in offices and breakrooms around the country, as listeners took staunch positions as either #TeamYanny or #TeamLaurel. Story also said that, if you change the pitch of the original recording, you can hearboth words. "I hearLaurel", DeGeneres tweeted. So with some clever tinkering, you can basically make yourself hear either option. Are you thinking about Australia or New Zealand? etc.
