No, but it switched to the other word for me 0 (0%)

I hear Yanny, but if I flip my phone over I hear Laurel. I can't flip from one to the other without physically changing the sound source, though.

The explanation might lie here:




Video also gives you the bliss of hearing what the other side of humanity hears.

My brother (who send me this) hears Laurel. "[there's no y or n and he clearly says rrrr]" etc.

Haha, so this thing is really a global phenomenon, eh? I heard about this on the radio in the morning, driving into work. I heard "Yanny" when it's played normally, and "Laurel" when it was slowed down. Reminded me of the gold/blue dress thing from a couple years back as well, lol.

I love when things are solved by science. So is really "Do you hear high frequencies or low frequencies better"

Fuuuuck, I've heard multiple bass and pitch manipulated versions and now I'm relentlessly hearing Laurel for the original!

I'm trying to switch back to Yanny, but unlike the sight of The Spinning Dancer I don't think this can be accomplished consciously or spontaneously.

Waited an hour. As expected, first thing I heard was Yanny.

But after a few more listens I am now able to hear both simultaneously. In the instance the word is said I can distinguish the two layers. Mission accomplished.

First it was yanny.

Watched a video that played both, then could only hear laurel.

Just tried again, and I can basically choose which one I hear, changing back and forth. :blink:

It's cool, but I think "the dress" is crazier as there's no way of manipulating it to change your perception. I could *never* see it as white and never will. That whole thing is really bizarre.

Yeah, that's true. The auditory thing is ultimately a bistable phenomenon and one can go from one interpretation to the other (or the two simultaneously). Bit harder than the visual ones (Necker cube, Spinning Dancer), of course.

Strangely I always perceived the dress as blue-gold, in-between the two most-cited results.

I switched to headphones and can hear both now. It starts with Yanny and then it's also saying Laurel. It's the devil's subliminal message.

Yes me too! I'm convinced we're seeing the "real" photo, everyone else is tricked into an extreme but we're the special ones. ;)

I'm pretty sure I've made the spinning dancer change direction before, but I just tried for 10 minutes and that girl simply will not go anti-clockwise.

Necker cube I can change really easily.

Yanny for me. If it has to do with higher frequency hearing than there should be a correlation with age also.

Heh the cube even changes by itself every time I blink. Otherwise just a question of refocus.

Close your eyes or look away from the screen. Think about which leg she stands on and imagine her spinning in the other with your mind's eyes. Then look back at the screen. Usually works for me. But if you look at it long enough (e.g. just her foot) or just a bit away it can switch spontaneously too.

Haha, I just had two tabs open, one of them The Spinning Dancer. Looked at her - clockwise. Went to the other tab and quickly closed it - now she's anti-clockwise.

Weird, I hear "Fuck you, reality is a dream!". Kidding aside, can I get a third option? So far I can hear nothing but a clear "Laurel" from the original clip. With the pitch turned down, as presented here I hear something much closer to blue and gold "Jely" as opposed to "Yanny", so basically an L instead of an N.

Will keep you updated if there are any further developments.

Wtf - I think there was a glitch in the matrix and someone edited that clip of yours, since first few listens I distinctly heard "Jelly" too, then went on to a different tab to do different shit, came back, and hear only a deep "Laurel".


Here, Jelly Jelly Jelly!

I thought this was a joke at first, like I did with the dress :/ the video with the frequencies was cool, I couldn’t work out how anyone could hear ‘yanny’. My bf also heard laurel.

Same for me, but given that was the first thing I heard, I reckon it's fair.


Oh, and why not, just to annoy people:

There's a tool here where you can adjust the strength of the two frequency groups:

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/05/16/upshot/audio-clip-yanny-laurel-debate.html

Yesterday I only heard Yanny. Today I used that slider and pushed it right down to the left and only started to hear Laurel when it was about one notch from the left. Then I started to hear Laurel and could only hear Laurel even when I moved it back to the middle. After a bit of playing around with it I can now hear either Laurel or Yanny at will while the slider is close to the middle.

At first I heard something like 'yee a yay', closer to yanny, but far fetched. After watching that video with selected frequencies, I hear both.

The dress seems like blue gold on the picture, but I assume it's fault of the light, so in reality it must be white.

It's so cool to learn about how other animals experience the world!!

I've listed to it after getting up, and still heard Laurel, except with this low-pitched version I could hear anything from Laury to Lenny to Larry to Jerry to Yally to Damn Fine Coffee.

There's something I haven't seen anyone mention so far, we can at least agree that there is something that sounds like a mouse click in this clip, right?
