I heard Laurel on my computer, but Yanny on my husband's computer.

My brother heard both at the same time.

Heard it as Laurel on my iPad this morning, and just heard it as Yanny on my work computer just now.  it's an interesting audio anomaly, but a colossally stupid thing to argue about.

Tried it on my phone and my work computer, guess they have the same sound settings?

Yanni but when they play it and show the waveform, I hear "yalie"

I heard Laurel. 

This mostly brings up the fact that my mother insists there is a massive difference in the pronunciation of Erin and Aaron.

It's Laurel and anyone who thinks differently is obviously wrong.

I first listened to it on my phone with headphones. "Yanny."

Unplugged my headphones. "Laurel"

Wild!

TV was Yanny, Mrs. Supe's phone was clearly Laurel with no hint of anything else.  Clearly its all a ruse just to piss me off, and 99% of the playbacks are really just saying one of the two.

I watched a pretty neat explanation of this phenomenon on YouTube yesterday.  Apparently, the original recording was saying Laurel, but high frequency artifacts were layered over the original recording such that some people hear Yanny.  There is even someone that has pitch-shifted a recording of himself saying Laurel, and the higher the shift, the more it sounds like Yanny.

I only ever hear laurel, but my hearing is quite bad. My wife hears both simultaneously regardless of source.

I think it's Lanny.  Everyone is wrong.  But then who gives a true shit one way or another?
