Is This Voice Saying 'Yanny' or 'Laurel?'

Workplaces everywhere ground to a halt on Tuesday as everybody argued whether the robot in this recording says "Yanny" or "Laurel".

Twitter user Cloe Feldman first posted the clip online Monday night.

Once again, it's time for social media users to choose a team - so are you a "Yanny" or "Laurel" person?

Apparently, both sides are correct, according to findings from some Reddit users.

When I listen to it, I clearly hear "Laurel" and believed that anyone hearing the other option was a troll.

Harvick wins fifth race of season at Kansas
Harvick has won four of the 11 races this season, including last week at Dover . "They're hitting on all cylinders", Truex said. But he closed it out with a fast final lap and achieved a pass on the final lap in a win for the first time in Kansas history.

That explanation was roundly dismissed by many on Twitter, however a select few claimed they managed to hear both Yanny and Laurel.

Obviously this also depends on individual physiology and on what you "expect" to hear.

A new audio clip features a robotic male voice speaking, but there's a global debate over what exactly he's saying.

I'm assuming they combined the high frequencies of "Yanny" with the lower frequencies of "Laurel" (with some overlap), and the two words are phonetically similar enough for this to work.
