    I heard “yanny”, then “yummy”. What’s going on?

    This has a slider which makes it easier to hear both

    Ahhh wtf I hear Laurel after doing that. Now I can hear both alternatingly from the original pretty much at will.

    Edit: ok I can't control it, my brain randomly interprets one as yanny and the very next as laurel. Weird as hell. Same thing happened to me with the dress although I could actually control what I saw more (but going back, I just see blue and black now).

    Hearing it on the slider makes me realize that this is due to a time-compensating pitch-shifting algorithm that's fucking up the formants. There's a way to shift it so that it preserves the formants in the most natural state while allowing the length of the sample to expand and contract, which I'm guessing would have less of the illusion.

    Yanny. I thought this whole thing was a trick; I don't see how anyone could hear laurel. But, I know people who have heard that.

    You're going to have a Laurel where your yanny used to be, you French tickler.

    If you can only hear yanny, go here and play the audio clip https://www.vocabulary.com/dictionary/laurel

    Then listen to the original clip again, you will hear Laurel. Or at least it helped me switch what I was hearing. Supposedly the clip is the vocab audio on loop so technically it is the word Laurel.
