FateNation : Both i heard only laurel. Wtf

V : I heard Laurel on both when you played the 2 clips separately??? Lol, what's wrong with me? xD I actually know 1 person called Laurel and another called "yanni" it is spelled differently but pronounced the same. I hear Laurel every time.

Zappa Woman : I can only hear Laurel, whether it is the higher or the lower frequencies. I've got my own theory as to why people hear one or the other.

ManPursueExcellence : It’s interesting, in this video, when he plays the upper portion I hear a strange mix of Laurel and Yanny that sounds like something in between Lanny or Larry 😂 However, it is still predominately Laurel. Lower portion is Laurel all day. I have to be focusing to hear Yanny but, I do hear Yanny in their with Laurel too. Yanny sounds lighter, maybe female. Laurel is a smooth man’s voice. I’m using iPhone ear buds👍🏾
