    Played it for my four year old daughter and she said “Laurel”.

    Yanny.

    Edit: I put it up to my ear and heard laurel. Now, I hear both. Most of fam heard laurel from the beginning.

    Y’all crazy. If you hear Laurel your supposed to go check yourself in the mental ward. Seriously, I read it on the internet

    Sounds like "so what, who cares," to me. And then, the next time, it's more like, "I am Iron Man." I'm sure it's Ozzy.

    I can't decide. :D

    There are some good writeups on this on the net. It seems that this was recorded right at a frequency shift point. What you hear is dependent on a combination of your hearing and the speakers you are listening to. If the track is slowed down (i.e. frequency shifts down) you hear Yanni more clearly. If the track is sped up and the frequency shifts up you hear Laurel. People with high-frequency hearing loss will be more likely to hear Yanni.

    I was thinking this also. Last I knew I had about 30% hearing loss both ears. In the hearing test both after about 2-3 tones I’m guessing .
