YANNY OR LAUREL? Audio experts weigh in on great debate

Audio experts told the entertainment outlet the debate lies in how people hear frequencies differently. There is too much publicity now about what you should hear (why are there only 2 choices?) to back up and do an unbiased test.

Everything from the speakers or headphones you're using, to your computer's soundcard can affect which frequencies get through. "I hear Laurel, too, but the more I hear it, I can do both".

The San Antonio Humane Society has named two puppies after Thursday's "Yanny vs. Laurel" viral phenomenon.

"When the low frequencies are more emphasised, people will hear Laurel". Of course, everyone's ears are different, so whatever one hears is the correct answer to them. And the internet is divided with half of users apparently hearing "Laurel", and the other half hearing what it actually says, which is clearly "Yanny". Furthermore, as a researcher interviewed by the New York Times pointed out, the brain can automatically tune out higher or lower frequencies if it knows what it's looking for. That's why some people pass them either into the Laurel box or Yanny box. The internet went insane as some people say they heard "Yanny" while others heard "Laurel".

The scientific explanation centers more on the quality of the recording and the resonance of speech sounds.

Where this does matter, she says, and where similar issues are at play, is how people fill in the gaps of their hearing when faced with a noisy context.

"People may not always be able to hear things the way that you're hearing".

The brain is left to interpret what we are hearing and make its own guess. So what do you hear? First, listen to this noisy clip and see if you can hear a sentence. On Tuesday evening, Feldman said in a video that she was fielding multiple interview requests and searching for the original creator.

But she adds that perception can change, even in the same device.
