Don't get angry in the comments if you disagree, because it does nothing for anyone.
Laurel, or Yanny?
In fact, according to scientists,
it WAS, indeed, RECORDED as laurel, but the name you hear is either one. The reason?
Frequencies and varied ages!
You may be like:
'w0w, that's stupid.'
but hear this out.
As a child, from ages 0 - 15(ish),
you can hear much higher, louder frequencies. But anything over that age, and your hearing may become less sharp, so you'll hear lower frequencies. Yanny was recorded on HIGH frequencies, while Laurel was recorded on LOW frequencies.
'OI, I'M UNDER THAT AGE, BUT I HEARD LAUREL!'
Well, to be completely honest,
That means you have less-than-average hearing. or, you may lack, or have an excess of, certain mental disability to hear either one, i.e. OCD, ADD, ADHD, ect.
but hearing one over the other does NOT make you any smarter, OR any dumber!
So, to answer your questions,
STATISTICALLY, it's laurel
SCIENTIFICALLY, it's both
dogs will ALWAYS hear yanny
whichever name you think about beforehand affects what you hear
The static is there to confuse your brain into picking up false frequencies
anyways, thanks for your time, see ya' around!
