[Listen] What Do YOU Hear? This Sound Clip Is Dividing The Internet

It’s the gold dress thing all over again… but this time, we are using our ears instead of our eyes. This sound clip is going viral. Yanny, or Laurel? To some, like myself, I don’t understand how anyone can hear anything but ‘Laurel.’ Others will swear they only hear ‘Yanny’.

Professor David Alais spoke with The Gaurdian and explains what is happening. He says: “The Yanny/Laurel sound is meant to be ambiguous because each sound has a similar timing and energy content – so in principle it’s confusable. All of this goes to highlight just how much the brain is an active interpreter of sensory input, and thus that the external world is less objective than we like to believe.”
