Have you come across the Yanny/Laurel audio clip going viral on the internet yet?
What do YOU hear? Apparently the actual word being said is Laurel.
So why are some people hearing Yanny, but others are hearing Laurel?
It is because our brains interpret sounds coming through our ears in a very unique way from others.
Scientists have explained that everyone’s hearing is different from one another. We may be more “in tune” with certain frequencies, while the person sitting right next to us is more in tune with completely different frequencies.
Even the shape of your ears determines how sound will come through to your brain.
I don’t know about you, but I find the whole debate very fascinating. I was sitting right beside my husband, listening to the exact same audio clip, yet we heard completely different things!
