If you're hearing Laurel, you can't hear the higher frequency Yanny.

Both are there, but if you amplify low frequency sounds, you hear Laurel, amplify the high frequency sounds, you'll hear Yanny.

I can hear both, but I don’t know how to switch from one to the other. That’s the part that’s messing me up.

With all these polls recently, anyone would think we’d only just added the option to make them!

I suspect that listening to it on a phone speaker promotes the Yanny interpretation.

This is really interesting, and it actually made me hear it as Laurel for the first time (after I had the slider all the way to Laurel and slowly brought it back up to the centre):

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/05/16/upshot/audio-clip-yanny-laurel-debate.html

I had to do the same on the Yanny side to start hearing it as Yanny again.

Just once recently, because you guys kept commenting in an old blog entry I made that I should do an SG Day blog.

So when I slide it all to to Yanny, I could hear it say Yanny, and then sliding it back I could kind of hear it most of the way to the middle except more and more it just sounds like "Yaee." Then in the middle it sounded like Laurel again and continued to sound like Laurel until I got one away from all the way Yanny. Now I notice Laurel even sliding back from Yanny more. I can hear the Yanny in it somewhat but it really sounds more like just interference. THe Laurel is stronger for me unless it basically isn't in it at all. Shit now I'm even hearing Laurel at all the way Yanny. WTF?!

The all-the-way-Yanny does indeed sound pretty wack.

I at first only heard the Yanny on all the way Yanny, but now I can hear Laurel anywhere on the slider. I can only hear Yanny at all on the Yanny side of the slider, and really not in any intelligible way until it's close to the all-the-way Yanny.

It would be interesting if someone actually used this track to try and figure which one people tend to hear depending on the language(s) they speak.

I remember back in like 2001 studying how frequency is the main reason why some people are good at learning foreign languages (eg Swedes) while others suck.

This one is worth checking out.

https://twitter.com/tomangouk/status/997095118023942144?s=21

The words are “brainstorm” and “green needle”. It’s similar, except I really do hear whichever one I choose to hear, despite the fact they seem to sound pretty different. (Of course, you can also hear “greenstorm”.)

I can only hear "needle." Definitely not "storm." Whether the first word I hear is "green" is harder to tell for me. Sounds like it could be "brain" or even "gray." I'd actually say it sounds most like "gray" to me and other words are product of suggestion from knowing what I'm supposed to hear.

I mostly heard laurel, I only heard yanny when it's pitched down, and if I'm trying to pay attention to the yanny part.
