  • Is This Voice Saying 'Yanny' or 'Laurel?'

It's a recording of a computerized voice saying one of the two names.

You couldn't get on social media Tuesday without seeing Team Yanny and Team Laurel going at it. The middle consonant is definitely not an n, Sanker said, but you might hear one because the vowel in front of it sounds particularly nasal.

As always, when there's disagreement on the internet, everyone remained calm and respectful.

"I messed with the audio file and discovered that basically, the lower frequencies say "Laurel"," Twitter user Jacob Livesay said.

To make it worse, some couldn't even agree with themselves.

It's the internet's biggest debate since The Dress. people are split over what word this clip is saying.

The clip has left Reddit users perplexed.

Some of my colleagues hear "Yanny", in a higher-pitched, slightly more nasal voice. Plz send help and also tell us what you hear in the comments down below.

Another user tried to enlighten the masses: "If you pick up on the higher pitch it's Yanny and the lower pitch is Laurel". It is known that some sounds are audible only to people under 25.
