Like the great dress debate, what do you hear? Yanny or Laurel?

Like the great dress debate, what do you hear? Yanny or Laurel?

The internet was seemingly split Tuesday when a circulating audio clip asked listeners to choose: Do they hear "Yanny?"

"I hear Yanny", she added. "I hear laurel", wrote Ryan Switzer.

In the viral clip, a robotic voice says a single word that has divided the online community, as some people swear they hear "yanny" while others can only hear "laurel". "What's the science behind that?"

Cloe Feldman, whose Twitter account now commands 206,000 followers, posted the Laurel-Yanny query and clip, which contained a looping robotic voice, on Monday night.

"If you hear Yanny and not Laurel I don't trust you", user Quincy Quarter-Zips tweeted.

But just about everyone is pointing to this Reddit post from Roland Camry as the original source of the Laurel-Yanny conundrum.

One Redditor pointed out that older people are more likely to hear "Laurel" because older people have suffered hearing damage over time.

The debate rings similar to that of "the dress" from the early months of 2015. Some of your friends saw a white and gold dress (umm, what?) while you saw blue and black.
