What do you hear? (The blue/white dress round two)

"Yanny" or "Laurel?"

I'm on my iPad and using both the crappy iPad speakers and my Skull Candy Crusher headphones, all I can hear is
Spoiler:
YANNY.

Same. There's no way it's the other word.

Listening using the speakers from my MacBook Air.

Re: What do you hear? (The blue/white dress round two)

I heard "Yanny" the first couple of listens but it switched to "Laurel."

Re: What do you hear? (The blue/white dress round two)

I was doing other stuff and just hit the replay button, and damn if it didn't come out as laurel, both times.

Now I can't do it again. Just Yanny.


Now I opened it in two tabs on my work laptop, and I can hear them sometimes different, sometimes the same.

Gut feeling makes me think it's related to phasing.

I'd be interested to know what two people listening to the same source at the same time hear. I.e. in the same room.

Re: What do you hear? (The blue/white dress round two)

I hear "yeah-ly". Not hearing the "N" for "yanny" at all - and by no stretch could I hear "laurel".

It's Laurel. There is no Y sound. HOW!?!?!?! Trying again and again......

I was always right about that dress, it was black and blue!

I don't care about the audio clip, but if I can be inspired to waste an additional 45 minutes of my life online, sign me up!

Re: What do you hear? (The blue/white dress round two)

OK, that's f-ed up, because I heard this earlier on the radio, and it was clearly saying 'Laurel' - so I had a preconception about it, but when going to the site just now, it clearly (actually a bit mushy-like) says 'Yanny'.

ETA if i listen with my phone's speaker pressed up to my gut, it says Yanny. Away from gut, it says Laurel.

The science is in the gut.

Re: What do you hear? (The blue/white dress round two)

Depends on what I listen to it on. Either an alien-ish Yanny or a more normal sounding Laurel.

Re: What do you hear? (The blue/white dress round two)

My wife was in the room when i played it and she said "Who's Yanny?" having no idea what any of it was about and not even looking my direction. All I hear is Laurel. When they played the clip at the beginning of HQ this evening i heard Yanny.

Anyone who hears something else is defective.

Re: What do you hear? (The blue/white dress round two)

Full disclosure: I’m listening to it with my shitty iPhone speakers, outside with all those noises, and I have an ear infection with virtually no hearing in my right ear but damned if I didn’t hear “Laurel” clear as day the 30 or so times I replayed it.
