this is the government slowly figuring out how to tell us what to do with pitch frequencies, like a human dog whistle where we are exposed to Yanny but succumb to Laurel

it was Yanny at first! it was!

i hate this shit. every time this happens i want to weigh in saying how stupid and memetastic all this bullshit, how embarrassing that we get sucked into it, it's just a reflection of our natural lust for tribal conflict playfully neutered by the lowest possible stakes

and then i come in here reading people saying they hear yanny and it makes genuinely feel like i want to physically fight someone over it and or walk into the ocean

I’m 35 and have had tinnitus for as long as I can remember so am a little surprised I unequivocally hear “yanny” (though phonetically it sounds more like “yehnny” to me).

good news wrote:Yeah so its recorded in such a way that depending on your speakers it emits a different frequency range. On my laptop speakers it clearly says yanny at high end, plugged into speakers i hear yanny and laurel cos it ha a broader frequency range, thru my phone its all mids so you only hear laurel. ITS A TRICK depending on your speakers you literally can't hear either name at times!Toggle Spoiler

Nice try

heard laurel first

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/201 ... ebate.html
this link has a slider where you can change the frequency so you hear both, i had to move it like a quarter of a bar to be able to hear yanni.

yanni is some reverb effect from laurel, so it's effectively two things overlapped. i can hear them both if i play with the slider

i didn't hear yanny on the slider until the second to last notch on the right but then sliding it slowly back i didn't hear laurel again until one notch to the right of center. weird stuff
