Laurel or Yanny? Which One Do You Hear?

Updated: 5/16/2018 10:25

First it was the color of the dress, and now it's Yanny or Laurel that the internet is debating about. 

There's a short piece of audio going around the internet, and some people are hearing Laurel, while others are hearing Yanny.  

Take a listen for yourself...

So which one is it?  Apparently it depends on your age.

According to a science expert who spoke with The Verge, it's the frequency in which you're hearing the sound.

"The acoustic information that makes us hear Yanny is higher frequency than the acoustic information that makes us hear Laurel," expert Lars Riecke assistant professor of audition and cognitive neuroscience at Maastricht University said.

When you're older, you tend to start losing your hearing at higher frequencies, whereas when you're younger, you can hear those higher frequencies.
