    Laurel

    DigiKid played this on her phone and all I heard was Yanny. She thought I was crazy. Then I came across it on Reddit and listened to it on my headphones and now all I hear is Laural. I am crazy!

    Yanny

    Yanny dominates for me. But, on great headphones, I can hear "Laurel" quietly below that, like there's two separate sound samples being played simultaneously, and Laurel is the quieter one.

    First heard Yanny, then Yourl a bunch of times, then Laurel. After that I found the part of the video where the two sounds merged and now I just kind of hear both when I listen.

    Yanny

    I hear Yanny or a Yaley or something on headphones and w/o headphones, I'm not sure what I truly hear anymore after the article and stuff about wavelengths and slowing it down etc

    Like looking for the faces or the vase, I can choose which to hear, at will, but I heard Laurel first.

    Nothing.

    Without context it's digital noise.

    Yanny

    I heard Laurel 2-3 times, and Yanny 20 or so times. I heard Launny the very first time.

    It mostly depends on your listening device. On my shitty work logitech headset, I heard Yanny the very first time. On shinola headphones, I clearly hear laurel with no hint of "yanny" at all. At home, laurel. On my phone speaker, yanny/laurel hybrid.

    Yanny

    I’ve tried on my running headphones, my phone, my work computer and now two lab computers (as a scientific exercise, of course) and it’s yanny all day erry day. Not even a hint of laurel for me.

    Laurel

    I listened to it on my phone yesterday and heard Laural (as I had been every time after the first time I heard it on DigiKid's phone) and then I listened again on my phone this morning and heard Yanny again.

    The funnest thing about this is when you are in a situation where 2 or more people are listening from the same device and hearing differently. Good fun.

    Heard Yanny at first then Laurel when I thought about it on my Astro A40s. I can kind of switch back and forth to whichever one I want to hear when I think about it. Kinda fun.
