    I'm getting a very distinct "Smith."

    Maybe time to upgrade my wifi signal.

    I couldn't see the youtube but saw this one on our evening news last night, a fun item they put on nightly different one each night of course

    Yanny & laurel is suppose to sound like VOTE? I only caught the tail end of it or was it suppose to be VOTE for one or the other?

    could only hear Laurel.

    Don't know how the L sound could turn into the Y sound. I hear Laurel. Weird is what it is.

    Even more disturbing is in the clip the OP provided the woman says, "What kind of monster hears "laurel"? and the other woman says "What???"

    The first time I listened I heard Yanny. Several times.

    My wife also heard Yanny.

    I went out and did some yard work for a while and when I came back in to take a break, I tried it again and all I heard was Laurel.

    Now, a few hours later it's back to Yanny. Strange!

    Seriously?
    You heard "What kind of monster hears laurel"?

    I heard "How does anybody hear Laurel out of that?"

    Apparently only old farts hear Laurel, that is to say people over 25.

    I can't hear the L's or the R that should be in "laurel", and the vowels sound completely different.
    What I'm hearing sounds like yeah-knee.

    edit: I listened again, and now the N sound doesn't seem to be there... I think my mind was (and still is) attempting to make sense of what I'm hearing.

    Ok, sorry, I was remembering another story that said that.
