Yanny or Laurel?
It is the debate that is literally TAKING over the internet! Seriously. It’s the new “gold dress” debate. Yeah, remember that? Well, now the new debate actually involves a sound clip
So which is it? Well, scientists say that we’re all right!
TheVerge.com spoke to one expert in this area to uncover the truth.
“If you remove all the low frequencies, you hear Yanny. If you remove the high frequencies, you hear Laurel,” according to Lars Riecke, an expert in audition and cognitive neuroscience at Maastricht University.
Adults tend to start losing their hearing at higher frequency as they age, so it could be a sign of hearing loss, Riecke says.
Other experts say that the low sound quality of the clip could be affecting how your brain is processing the sound.
Either way, this author tells you that it’s TOTALLY “Laurel.”
