I am a 47 year old male. When I began this experiment all I could hear at first was Yanny. It seemed pretty conclusive that I was in the YANNY camp. I jumped back a few times to the start and was for some unknown reason starting to hear a "..rel" sound. Then I read a few comments from others who said after looping over it a few times they were beginning to hear blends of YANNY and LAUREL. I decided to think about the word LAUREL and keep replaying between 1 second and 4 seconds from the video over and over again and lo and behold my perception of what I was hearing was literally changing from YANNY to hearing an overlap of both YANNY and LAUREL. Eventually YANNY diminished so much that all I could hear was LAUREL. It astounded me. What had just happened? The video cannot be altered 'on the fly' and my computer speaker have not changed. Did I just use my brain to bias what I wanted to hear so that I can hear LAUREL instead? At some time in the future I will come back and retry this again. See for yourself, if you try looping between 1 - 4 seconds at the start of the video, whether your hearing will change. If you're in the LAUREL camp, I'd like to know if you can change your perceived hearing to YANNY doing as I did. Funny. After writing the above, I went back and listened to this video again. My hearing had reset to YANNY. I then did as I've just stated above and 'retrained' my hearing to LAUREL. I went back after a shorter break this time to see if my hearing had reset back to YANNY and it hadn't. I am now hearing LAUREL. I will give it a bit longer and see if my hearing resets back to YANNY. That's a little concerning. I thought I'd given my ears and mind enough time to reset so that I could go back to hearing YANNY, but I'm now hearing LAUREL as clear as a bell. Not even focusing on the word YANNY is making me hear any different now. All I hear now is LAUREL.

It took well over an hour but I can once again hear YANNY.

I’ve only been able to hear laurel once. It was so weird. I was listening, it said yanny, but randomly, it said laurel and it sounded like an entirely different clip of sound. So weird.

I asked my little brother(10) and niece(7) to listen to the audio, without telling them what they were suppose to be listening for & they both heard yanny. Which actually proves your theory about the age thing because I heard Laurel. 👍🏽 I was definitely amazed by this,

First i could just hear "Laurel" and not "Yanny".. then i tried to figure out how to train myself to hear both..If you want to hear "Yanny", you have to hear very early to the sound, means before you hear the "L" of "Laurel" you have to try to hear that electric sounding voice saying "YA" - "NNY". You will hear in bewteen "Laurel" too, but thats how u can train your brain to hear both (Yanny sounds like a High Pitch Electric Voice, Laurel more like an Men with a deep Voice). Thats how i figured it out for my brain to hear "Yanny" aswell. beside that the "Yanny" Sounds is more , lets say quieter & more in the background. Good Luck ;)
