When I showed him the two words, he definitely sided with Yanny.
"I would guess that because of the poor recording quality, the sound ended up being on a perceptual border", said Todd Ricketts, vice chair of graduate studies with the department of hearing and speech sciences at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
First, there's a simple explanation as to why some people hear "Yanny" and some people hear "Laurel".
Evidently, there is a higher-pitched "yeh"-like sound hidden somewhere near the beginning of the word laurel (at least in this viral recording), along with an "ee"-like sound near the end - but these higher-pitched sounds are not readily audible for everyone".
The Internet has erupted into a debate about whether a short audio clip features the word "Laurel" or "Yanny", and experts said they might both be correct.
But now, it's been revealed the reason why we are hearing different names.
Or you can use The New York Times' tool that can shape the sound both ways by changing the high and low pitches.

Celtics fine with Cavs coach Lue's 'goon' comments
The Celtics won't beat themselves like the Raptors did at times against Cleveland, making Boston's series lead that much safer. LeBron apparently wanted the Cavs to get Jordan, and in a rare turn of events, the front office went against his wishes.
In case you chose to spend yesterday on an island in the middle of the ocean, chances are you are familiar with the Yanny vs Laurel test.
Headphones and speakers can also play a role in this, depending on the quality of the set, or if they are tinny.
What does hearing either word say about my hearing?
Juuular also posited that older people, who are more likely to have sustained hearing damage, will probably hear "laurel" because our ability to hear higher frequencies diminishes as we age.
"So, people are just mishearing those sounds through a degraded audio clip on their phone or what have you".
Is there a right or wrong answer?
In a YouTube video, Feldman explained the post originally came from Reddit, and she then posted it to Twitter. But he could not say for sure.
