Sorry team Yanny, Laurel is dominating on Google.

It's the new "the dress": A four-second audio clip has triggered a heated debate on the internet.

Here in The Times newsroom, there seemed to be no pattern among those who heard "Yanny" or "Laurel", although a few heard faint traces of the other name, and some manipulation of the bass allowed those who hear "Yanny" to hear "Laurel".




"What do you hear?!" she tweeted.

The internet was seemingly split Tuesday when a circulating audio clip asked listeners to choose: Do they hear "Yanny?". Now that this reporter only hears Yanny, all she wants to do is hear Laurel again. "I hear laurel", wrote Ryan Switzer. The voice appears to be saying one word, and no one can agree if it's saying "laurel" or "yanny".

"Omg, that blows my mind how people can hear such diff things". We all hear Yanny. Are you exhausted of reading the words "Yanny" and "Laurel" yet?!? Some said if you turned the volume way down or adjusted sound settings, you would hear something different. I invite you to be tempted to pull out your hair as you listen closely, and see how the people of Twitter are reacting to the greatest debate of 2018.
