    Dang, forreal!

    The boards have been super quiet lately so I thought this would be fun.
    "Dang, forreal!" hahaha this is wonderful.
    I listened to it ONCE on the Today show yesterday and have not heard it since, but all I heard was yanny! I've heard plenty of people say it changed for them though, depending on how close/far away they were to the speaker

    I also hear either yah-ree or lah-ree. I don't hear Yanny, and I really don't hear Laurel.

    Yeah as in, “I hear something other than laurel or yanny, here’s what it sounds like to me.”

    I hear Yanny!! It was interesting though, there was a video where this guy played it at different frequencies (I think frequencies?) and when he lowered it you could clearly hear laurel, but when he raised it you could clearly hear Yanny. Crazy! Now I'm distracting myself trying to find the video again.

    Whether it's something to care about or not, it's a fun distraction for a minute.

    I STILL only heard Laurel. Like in every variation and device it's Laurel.

    Yes! We just did this at work this morning! We played them at different frequencies and the difference is wild! We found that the higher the frequency, you can clearly hear yanny. But the lower the frequency, you clearly hear Laurel. I heard somewhere that some people naturally hear at higher frequencies than others. And others at lower frequencies. Any music nerds here? Sopranos are more likely to hear yanny than a bass, who would be more likely the hear laurel.
    Had to geek out real quick hah!
