Your Turn

At this point, I pretty much think anyone who says Yanny is just messing around, but give it a listen and let me know if you hear Yanny.

My sister’s wedding was so emotional, even the cake was in tiers.

Don Kieballs said...

I hear both

Kate K said...

Yanny.

Don Kieballs said...

I also didn't realize you were posting "Reader Your Turns"

What is this? I'm listening to something more interesting and not turning it off to listen to whatever this is.

It's blue and black not gold and white.

Brayson87 said...

Yes it's laurel and the dress is blue, we used to say people who couldn't perceive reality were wrong.

More Cowbell said...

I can't hear Laurel at all. Only Yanny.

Penelope said...

Yanny

just sayin' said...

Crazy. Laurel, 1000%.

Itttt said...

WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE HEARING "LAUREL". SERIOUSLY, GET YOUR HEARING/BRAIN FUNCTION CHECKED. Maybe an MRI.

It's saying YANNY. Where is there ANY "L" sound let alone two of them? Never mind the "A" as in "apple", not "aw" as in "awful".

Yanny.

Laurel

Don Kieballs said...

itttt it's playing both simultaneously. Yanny is higher and easier for younger ears to hear. Laurel is lower and easier for older ears to hear. Change the treble/bass and you'll hear both clearly.

Laurel

It's f*cking laurel:

" So he sent it to a friend who created an Instagram poll, which began going viral early this week. One detail may frustrate some and vindicate others: he found the original clip on the vocabulary.com page for “laurel,” the word for a wreath worn on the head, “usually a symbol of victory.” "

Dog whistle?

This helps explain it in a very easy to understand way by adjusting bass levels. Listen to it, then listen to the original. You may be able to hear either at will.

I only hear Yanny. And I'm not a native English speaker.

roque said...

+1 Don. When I listen on my phone it's Yanny, but on my laptop which has more complex audio settings it's Laurel.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Laurel. Not even a question.

What are they trying to cover up? The last time this happened, with the gold dress, the CIA torture report had just been released and the stupid blue/gold dress questions pushed it out of the public conversation.

What is it this time? Probably Israel killing Palestinians? What else could it be?

The_Myth said...

Actually, I hear "YAMMY."

Undercover_LBD said...

I hear laurel - on my phone, my MacBook and on TV.

Rita said...

It’s a llama

Brayson87 said...

@DDonna, it's the kind of neuroscience they don't teach in schools.

Sal T said...

Kimberly Davis said...

K OB said...

Guesser said...

I hear Yanny,no Laurel at all,and I'm old.

T. W. said...

Using my phone. I hear Laurel & some weird background noise.

Jennifer Low Rents said...

I'm old and I hear Yanny.

Viking Song said...

I only hear Laurel. My son hears Yanny. Apparently, both words are being said at the same time but on different frequencies. A couple of folks on here need to take a chill pill and lighten up.

Gatorgirl said...

CNN Candy, please don't ever stop those jokes, I need them in my day!!

Simon said...

3s and 7s said...

Todd Brink said...

Laurel

Cee Kay said...

Interesting. I clearly heard Yanny earlier today when I listened to this, but just now it was absolutely Laurel.

HoneyRyder said...

Yanny This is the auditory unicorn of words.

just sayin' said...

Use this tool to hear what you're not hearing. I hear is "Laurel", and with the slider pushed all the way to the right, I still hear "Yarry".

Gator said...

I heard nothing BUT Yanni when it was on the news today, now I hear Laurel.

hunter said...

On the radio this morning I clearly heard "Laurel" (lower pitched)

On my iphone from Facebook an hour ago I CLEARLY heard "Yanny" (higher pitched)

Now I'm on my laptop and it is clearly "Laurel" (lower pitched)

I think the speakers have a major part to do with it.

Southern Man said...

It is both. Which you hear depends on what frequencies your ears are more attuned/sensitive too.

Imagine a color blind person and someone with normal vision looking at the same piece of multicolored art...

Perception is in the mind.

iPhone: Yanny
iPad: Yanny
Desktop: Yanny

samechick said...

I heard Laurel on my samsung phone, walked over to my husband and hit play and he heard Yanny.

I can't help but wonder if this also affects what music we like.

Green Tea said...

I heard laurel yesterday, was on 2 hours sleep. This morning, after sleeping 10 hours, I hear yanni.

Green Tea said...

And that's listening on my phone and both time.

just sayin' said...

This makes you wonder...what else do we perceive so differently from each other? colors?

Sal T said...

Has this been changed? I got Laurel yesterday and today yanni (or yammy) @Green Tea Same except last night was sleepless for me!

Anonyme said...

Yarry ??!!

Green Tea said...

And now its night time and it is Laurel again.

Green Tea said...

Hi Sal

I thought maybe being tired vs rested may have been a factor. But I'm back to hearing Laurel...so what do I know.
