Science can explain why some people hear Laurel and others hear

16 May 2018

To sum it up, different people hear sounds in different pitches, which is why the Internet couldn't decide on which word, "Yanny" or "Laurel," the recording was saying. The talks began after 20-year-old Instagram "influencer" and YouTuber from Florida named Cloe Feldman shared an audio clip on social media asking her followers what they heard.

Teigen tried to win Kaling back with this comment: "They're saying younger, more attractive people hear yanny!". Now it's Yanny or Laurel. "I do not hear the 'r, '" one person tweeted.

First of all, the clip is, according to Sanker "not prototypical" of either laurel or yanny.

So, are you team Laurel or team Yanny?

Remember the dress that people either thought was gold and white or black and blue? It's a recording of a computerized voice saying one of the two names.

In the camera department, the device offers 16MP dual camera setup on the rear and a single 16MP camera on the front for selfies. Nokia also touts presence of AI integration for improved photography with image recognition to deliver better results.

If you want to know what is causing this incredible rift (and some actually hear both at the same time), some internet wizards have solved the mystery. And then there are some people who claim to hear differently depending on the device we're using.

But that doesn't necessarily explain why someone would hear the lower or higher frequencies.

Chandrasekaran told The Verge that because the original recording is ambiguous - it's awful, remember? - your brain needs to fill what it thinks you should hear.
