What do you hear? Viral audio clip stirs online debate

The two younger members of Select All heard "Yanny", while the older two heard "Laurel". However, not everybody experiences it the same way. Or so they say, because no matter how much I mess with the audio I can hear only Laurel ... only Laurel. People were left befuddled by the infamous dress incident of 2015 in which no one could decide if a dress in the photo was white and gold or black and blue. But we'll talk about that in a few paragraphs.

People are divided over whether that voice is saying "Yanny" or "Laurel".

Much like the debate over the color of the dress, the debate quickly went viral on social media, with celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Chrissie Teigen giving their opinions on what they heard. "I can't even figure out how one would hear yanny", she wrote.

So what's going on here? And one person summed it all up, writing, "I mean HOW are we communicating on a day to day basis if half you are hearing "yanny"?"

Turnbull tweeted that some people tend to fill in those audio gaps using their brain, but others may not.

This is why we can't have nice things, and why history will judge us.

We made a decision to poll our Twitter audience to figure out what it hears.

He added that the device used to listen to the clip can also affect what you hear, due to the different frequency profiles of speakers or headphones. Some said if you turned the volume way down or adjusted sound settings, you would hear something different.

But the reason the clip's got us all obsessed is because there's now no clear answer to whether the person is saying "Yanny" or "Laurel" - they're saying both, it just depends on how you hear it.
