'Laurel' or 'yanny'?: Viral 4-second audio clip is dividing the internet

But even after listening to this, all I'm able to hear is "Yanny".

Instead, people on Twitter are arguing over whether an audio recording is saying "Yanny" or "Laurel".

"Does anyone in here hear Yanny somehow?? I hear laurel", wrote Ryan Switzer. "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. The voice appears to be saying one word, and no one can agree if it's saying "laurel" or "yanny".

Any while most listeners were divided on if they heard "Yanny" or "Laurel", some people said they heard both after multiple listens.

Beauty and fashion designer Cloe Feldman tweeted a video Monday with an audio track and asked people to vote, 'What do you hear?! "This is a case for the Federal Bureau of Investigation", one Twitter user wrote.

If you do want to test out different methods of laurel vs. yanny, just make sure you give yourself some time in between each session, possibly with another audio clip in there to cleanse your audio palette.

The debate rings similar to that of "the dress" from the early months of 2015.
