Countless people have been arguing with each other over a certain listening test that has recently gone viral. Some people say they hear “Yanny” while others say they hear “Laurel”.
Here, we will show why people are hearing different things.
The Normal Audio
This is the normal audio. The reason why people hear two different things has to do with 5 different variables.
- Which phone you have. Different phones pronounce different frequencies more prominently.
- The “breathe” sound or “high frequency’s” do indeed sound similar to yanny.
- The low end, and mid tones clearly say Laurel.
- Your age effects which higher frequencies you can hear with ease.
- With both the low end and high end sounding completely different and layered on top of each other, you may hear one or the other, or both.
“Laurel” – The Low Passed Audio
This is the low passed audio. Rather, an audio clip that does not allow for the breathe or high end frequency to be heard. Surely, you do not hear anything other than Laurel.
“Yanny” – The High Passed Audio
This is the high passed audio. Rather, an audio clip that does not allow for the mid or low end frequency to be heard. Just the breathy sound. You can hear how it sounds similar to Yanny to the subconscious mind.
At the end of the day, you’re really hearing both. This is a clever subliminal trick which contains both stacked on each other in a way where they blend.
