    The new "blue dress".

    Some hear Yanny and others Laurel.

    Which are you?

    Yanny, quite obviously (to me). How people would hear 'Laurel' is a mystery.

    I heard "Yanny" once, the very first time I played it but now I only hear Laurel.

    Yanny for me and the missus. Can't see how you would make 'Laurel' out of it.:wacko:

    I only hear Laurel, so maybe there are two versions available, with only one on offer to different listeners.

    There's no way Laurel and Yanny sound similar.

    Laurel. No question. If I hadn't been given any options at all I would have said Laurel.

    Apparently it's down to your ability to hear higher pitch frequencies

    If you strip out the high pitched stuff it sounds like "Laurel"

    I'm hearing "Yanny" despite having given my hearing a frightful bashing in nightclubs in the past

    That's reassuring as even after all that techno I still don't hear 'laurel'. What I do hear is 'yearly' or 'yelly' or something. So out of the two options it's 'yanny', but in a stupid accent and not what I would have said had it not been written down in front of me.

    Has anybody tried the Mariah Carey Christmas one?
