What do you hear?

Sponsored Links
A friend posted this on FB today, and when I played it, I heard Laurel, and my hubby heard Yanny. Some are saying it has to do with the pitch we hear, which makes some sense to me since my hubby & I have different birds whose scream hurts the worst.
Weird anyway!

Re: What do you hear?

Lord it’s the dress all over again. Don’t we already have enough tearing our society asunder??? :-P

I very clearly hear Yanny. My though went to overtones, but that can’t really explain it given how clearly I hear the word. I’ve listened for overtones that could bend the phonics for me over to Laurel, but they just aren’t there.

Re: What do you hear?

Haha..these are so silly. It sounds like laurel for whatever it's worth. But what does it matter? Of real interest is any legitimate scientific explanation for the underlying difference in perception.

Re: What do you hear?

So I hear laurel clearly. I asked my husband what word he heard (WITHOUT telling him the 2 options) and he heard yanny (he actually said yammy before I told him). Weird.

Imagine the cumulative time and productivity wasted debating/tweeting about etc... this audio clip at workplaces and schools across the country. It's fun to indulge every once in a while, but these manufactured, faux controversies are why I've never signed up for social media (except a myspace when it very first came out and deleted a year or 2 later) and have abandoned other forums besides PF as I actually truly do feel a community here (though admittedly waste a lot of time here lol). Just you watch, this is probably some kind of promotion or ad.

Re: What do you hear?

I've been hearing Laurel, while my wife has been hearing Yanny. Quite intriguing, as the two sound nothing alike.

But the most important thing here is that Terry's link to that article on the subject proves me right! Laurel it is!

Preparing my "I was right" dance even as I type this! Should be ready by the time my wife gets home.
