‘Yanny or Laurel?’ New Viral Audio Clip Tears America Apart Like a Sequel to ‘The Dress’ – Luckily, We Have Explanation!

OK, folks, here’s a new hype that is kind of The Dress debate we had earlier. This time the whole Internet is trying to decide what the audio says – “Yanny” or “Laurel.” 

Nexter.org knows the answer and ready to explain the whole thing.

Yanny or Laurel?

The great Yanny vs. Laurel debate exploded on Tuesday after Redditor RolandCamry shared a record of a computer-generated voice and it divided America into two camps. The voice appears to be saying one word, and no one can agree if it’s saying “laurel” or “yanny.”

In case you don’t know what we’re talking about, listen to it 10,000 times and decide whether you fall on the side of light or darkness.

Yeah, that’s tough. For some Twitter users, that has become a life-ruining thing. We gathered the funniest reactions.

Explanation

Ta-da! It’s high time to stop you’re suffering and explain what’s going on.

The recording itself is pretty low quality, so your brain fills in the gaps between discernible sounds, just like it did with the colors of the blue-and-black or white-and-gold dress because the original photo was taken in weak lighting.

Also, you have to take into account the different ways people are listening to this – through mobile phones, headphones, tablets, etc.

Apparently, both sides are correct, according to findings from some Reddit users.  There are two separate voices in the recording, one saying “Laurel” at a lower frequency and the other saying “Yanny” at a higher frequency. If you play the recording at a high volume, you’re probably more likely to hear “Laurel,” while if the volume is at a lower level, you’ll hear “Yanny.”

Still stuck on one? Try playing around with different headphones, speakers, and volumes — you’ll eventually hear the difference.
