There's A Scientific Explanation For The "Yanny" vs. "Laurel" Debate
May 18 2018 by Desiree Burns
Considering that the audio clip showed up on multiple social media outlets such as Twitter and Facebook, these different outlets use different compression programs for audio, causing the frequency of the sound to change. "And I want to know if the people hearing Yanny saw a blue and black dress and the people hearing Laurel saw a white and gold one", she wrote.
Experts give the low-down on possible explanations. Now that the brain is primed to cut through the noise, you will probably be able to hear: "The juice of lemons makes fine punch". "When there is more energy towards the mid and higher frequencies, people tend to hear "Yanny". That's, you don't hear Laurel", says Tyler Oakley.
"It's an illusion that truly demonstrates that hearing is believing".
Early Thursday morning, the Air Force tweeted, "The Taliban Forces in #Farah city #Afghanistan would much rather have heard #Yanny or #Laurel than the deafening #BRRRT they got courtesy of our #A10". Why would people hear two totally different words?
Evolution of mobile phones
Like the flip phone, it was also comprised of two parts but they came together and apart by sliding the parts on a rail. Given the fast pace of growth, the future is bound to hold even many more implications for mobile phone users.
The responses vary, possibly because of the device you listen to it on.
DO you hear "Yanny" or "Laurel"? "Everybody has a different take but ultimately, it illustrates that what is real isn't absolute".
Of course that can't just happen with any word, so there must be some clear similarities between the audio in the same way that "laurel" and "yanny" all gave us a headache. Now an audio file has friends, family members and office mates questioning one another's hearing, and their own.
