Kind of like that dress that looked blue and black to some folks, and white and gold to other folks.

The audio clip bends the question to what is heard, rather than what is seen, and people are fired up about it.

It's also worth noting that people are expecting to hear either "Yanny" or "Laurel", which makes it more likely that they actually will hear one of those words and not something else.

"I can't figure out how one would hear yanny".

However, they report that age isn't the only reason that the audio may be heard differently by different people. The last person cycles between hearing both "Laurel" and "Yanny". Much of what you hear, she says, is about what you're expecting to hear.

Next, listen to this clip, which is no longer noisy. But when he got to the office Tuesday morning, he heard "Yanny" on his computer. If you have hearing loss, it could affect a particular frequency, allowing you to hear only one of the two variations. If you play the recording at a frequency with more bass, you're probably more likely to hear "Laurel", while if the there is less bass, you'll hear "Yanny".

Intrigued, Szabo sent it to a friend who posted the clip on Instagram and created a poll that quickly went viral, triggering a mass debate that has spread internationally.
