Which word do you hear, PotD?

I can't even imagine how that sounds like Yanny, but if one lowers the pitch, it makes more sense to me personally.

I can hear both sometimes. The ‘Yanni’ sounds like one of the toy aliens from the Toy Story movies.

totally sounds like yanny - I hear no "L"s at all, and for a word with both a short and long L that's impressive to fail at.

I can very easily control which one I hear. My first listen was "Yanny" but if you register only the low pitch sound you can hear "Laurel".

wtf

I opened this topic a few minutes ago and 100% heard Yanny, voted for it, and had no idea how anyone could hear Laurel.

For some reason I come back to it and now I only hear Laurel, and don't hear any semblance of Yanny... odd.

I hear nothing but Laurel. The hell?

edit: had my dad play it on his computer down the hall via speakers to see what he heard. Suddenly I heard yanny. Same when I got closer, but still heard laurel through my own headphones. Few mins later, I could hear laurel through headphones too, but only while not wearing them. Doing that I can practically hear both words at once. With headphones on though, it's Laurel without question.

I feel like this is a matter of audio quality. ATH-M50x vs whatever random speakers my dad is using. Maybe.
