Posted on

You may be wondering if this is gonna be one of those "is the dress blue or gold" things and the answer is, YOU BET IT IS. Please listen to this recording and tell me whether you hear "yanny" or "laurel."

Upon first listening to the recording, I thought I was being trolled. It obviously said "yanny."

A lot of people have noticed a difference when listening to the recording on a phone versus their desktop.

Attention: On the phone it is yanny and on desktop it is laurel, clearly something to do w the speakers! https://t.co/c8L8xZwcpE via @juliareinstein
