    If you can't hear one or the other, this is the best tool to use. Click on the link. Go to the extreme edge of the one you can't hear and you should be able to hear it. If it doesn't work the first time, click back and forth between the far edge of each and you should be able to hear both. Although, I don't know how people came up with "Yanny". At no time can I hear the "nn" sound. It sounds more like Yarry to me.

    This worked for me, but I had the bar slid almost all the way to the left before I could hear “Laurel”. It sounded like “Yammy” for a while and then “Yanny” and I was 90% to the left before I heard “Laurel”.

    Just like everything else this will all be old news in short order, and no one will care anymore much like last year's fidget spinners, but I can't help but to wonder what if...

    ...Just what if people... we as a culture get stuck on this, and we can't stop ourselves from perpetually going around and around and around listening to these nonsense words and comparing, and listening and debating, and listening and being perplexed, and listening and fighting in the streets, and then riots begin breaking out all over the world, pinning one half of the world against the other in an endless war that contributes to the ultimate destruction of the human race?

    What if people...Just what if?

    Laugh now...but we're already 4 or 5 days in with no end in sight.

    The NBA playoffs are going on, and this is all that anyone cares about.

    We're a couple months into the ML Baseball season, and this is all that anyone cares about.

    Prince Harry is about to marry, and this is all the anyone cares about.

    I beg of everyone stop this nonsense right now before it gets out of control, and there's not turning back, and let's all get our priorities in order ASAP!!!... Geesh!!!

    Now, if you would have said the NHL playoffs are going on, and this is all that anyone cares about, you'd be on to something. Nobody cares about those other three things...

    All I heard on my computer was Laurel. I played it on my phone for someone and heard Yanny.

    Heard Yammy 100% of time. NkyPete's post #29 helped me to finally hear Laurel two slide notches left of center. Thanks, Pete. Now I can go back to watching rain, knowing 70% of world wasn't playing a cruel joke on me.
