Do you hear Yanny or Laurel?

But she made the call to post an audio clip to Twitter asking users if they hear "Laurel" or "Yanny" and that decision can't be reversed.

Changing the bass or the pitch of the clip also can change what word you hear.

The "Yanny or Laurel" question has already provoked thousands of responses on Twitter and Reddit, but maybe some local context will help settle it once and for all.

"If you have a low quality of recording, it's not surprising some people would confuse the second and third resonances flipped around, and hear Yanny instead of Laurel". The two younger members of Select All heard "Yanny", while the older two heard "Laurel".

Remember the dress that was blue and black or gold and white? Some of my colleagues hear "Yanny", in a higher-pitched, slightly more nasal voice. "They can be seen in two ways, and often the mind flips back and forth between the two interpretations".

The newest either-or choice sweeping the internet is a question of auditory perception. Where else can you switch "Yanny" or "Laurel" teams-even just for a moment?

Here's another example of a visual cue affecting the way a word is heard.

The model tweeted: 'I just asked my dad what he heard and he said "nothing" and my mom said "rural"'.

Chandrasekaran told The Verge that because the original recording is ambiguous - it's bad, remember? - your brain needs to fill what it thinks you should hear.
