    I heard Yanny clear as a bell the first 20 or so times that I heard it...then suddenly I started hearing Laurel.

    I hear Laurel every time and my 5 year old granddaughter hears Yanny. I ask her what is the guy saying and she said "Yammy". I can't believe it. How is this happening?

    My daughter only hears Laurel and my wife could only hear Yanny forever. Finally my wife heard LAurel after we stopped for a few minutes and replayed it.

    Clear as day Laurel.

    Wife thinks I’m insane and that it’s obviously Yanny...

    I can hear both. The higher pitched "voice" is Yanny and the lower tone one is Laurel.

    Okay, I listened to it again this morning. Now I hear Laurel. Last night, I listened on my phone and heard Yanny, this morning I listened on my computer. I also just saw this on the news, started out Laurel and switched to Yanny. I'm assuming it has to to with sound frequencies and how each of us hears them and of course the difference in speakers would play into that.

    Heard Yanny yesterday morning now I hear Laurel. It's like the blue dress or gold dress all over again.
