Like Mooly, this keeps getting stranger for me. Now, on the same computer speakers I once heard laurel, I now hear yanny no matter how far away I am from the speakers . Complete reversal.

Laurel or Yanny
On my panasonic tv I hear Laurel but the first time that I heard it I wasn't prepared mentally and I heard "Yaurel".


The people who voted Yanny are focusing too hard on what isn't there and are using their imagination weather consciously or unconsciously to "fill in the gaps". Which is a trait I wish I still had but I'm glad I don't anymore, just like I don't believe in Santa Claus anymore though I wish I still did.

I don't know about focusing too hard. My wife played it on her iPhone and asked my what I heard. For me it was clearly Yarry (rhymes with Barry). But depending on when and were I hear it, that changes.

Definitely not trying to hard because when it appeared on TV I knew what to expect without even thing, only it wasn't, it was the opposite. No time to think about it.

Well my sister in law came over tonight, we decided to do an unbiased test and not tell her either of the things it might be. She immediately said Laurel. My wife (who has only ever heard Yanny) said "it's a trick it is different now, I clearly hear Laurel". I assured her that it sounded exactly the same as before and she wouldn't believe me until her mum said It's still Yelly We asked my 6 yo nephew what he heard, and he couldn't really describe it. He could not hear an actual word at all. We asked him do you hear Laurel or Yanny, and he said no, nothing like that.

After about 30 seconds my Wife said It's changed back to Yanny! So weird!! everyone else heard the same thing (Laurel or Yelly) consistently during the time it changed for her.

edit: It's definitely MUCH better value when there are people in the room who hear the opposite to what you do!!

Tony.

Yet more "proof" that it's best not to believe what other people say they hear/see/did last week

I always hear "Yelly" right from the first recording I heard.

The brain is good at making sense of ambiguous sights or sounds.
It fills in the gaps itself.
It like looking at words with no vowels and still making sense of the words.

This is the strange part for me. I was expecting to hear laurel. I had heard it before, I was going to hear it again. I heard nothing but yanny.

This morning, just before typing this, I hear laurel, and only laurel.

I will no longer try and figure it out

It's a funny one. Worse than that damn dress from a few years back. For me the dress changed color once and stayed that way. The Laurel thing keeps shifting back and forth.
