    I heard yanny for the first half day i listened to it and couldn't hear Laurel for the life of me! And then I listened to one of those pitch changes someone did that suddenly allowed me to hear what the Laurel sounds like, and I started hearing Laurel in the original too. AAHH

    And now I hear either Yanny or Laurel randomly switching and it's not by choice!!

    I started it, and all I heard at first was Laurel, until I started listening a bit harder. I can hear both at the same time when I focus, but if it was a cursory, passing thing I probably would have only heard Laurel and moved on lol.

    So it is supposed to be Laurel. Some kids were studying for an exam and were using this site to get proper pronunciation when one of them heard Yanny instead of Laurel. Then it went to Reddit.

    I don't know about perfect pitch, but I can also hear them simultaneously. I hear Laurel most, but I can concentrate and here Yanni, or both. I wonder if it's like refocusing a part of your brain - like looking at a fan blade and seeing it turn in counterclockwise when it's clearly turning clockwise?

    Also have bad hearing. All I heard is Yanni, clear as day.
    BF says all he hears is Laurel.

    When I clicked on the news clip linked on the first post and the sound played... I heard Laurel. Very deep voice. When I heard Yanni last night over and over, very high pitched voice (from a different link to just the sound, no news clip). Must be the speakers vs headsets and pcs being used changing my perception. Interesting... makes me feel more insane than I normally do.
