The dress was white and gold.
The voice says Yanny.
I hear “Yaurel mom”
I mostly hear Laurel.
Only, only laurel. If you hear yanny, you’re slammed. Listened closely, twice, and can’t understand how you could even perceive yanny. I tried…
I hear both. It’s weird. When I play it from my speakers, I mostly hear Yanny, but when I cup my hands over my ears, I hear Laurel.
Laurel but my older son heard yeelee
I hear yanny.
The dress was blue and black in real life; you can find it on amazon. It only looks gold (to some people) in that one specific picture.
It supposedly was a recording of the word laurel on the vocabulary dot com website.
i hear Yankel
Toi: I am totally with you here, hear!
Seriously, how can anyone hear Yanny?
It’s so obviously Laurel.
The dress was blue and black to me as well
You can find videos from audio professionals explaining what’s going on, but both are in fact correct.
Are there any studies on hearing a name a seeing a color dress? Any pattern?
I heard speculation that a younger person is more likely to hear “Yanny” because younger people hear higher pitches, but the people I know of all ages don’t match that. The dress looks white and gold to people whose perception adjusts for evening lighting and it looks blue and black to people whose perception is wired to adjust for afternoon lighting. And it looks blue and brown to people who see with their eyes.
If I’m remembering correctly, the first time I listened to it, I heard Yanny
(it was repeated several times in that video, and I heard Yanny each time),
but when I listened to it again, I heard Laurel, and it’s been only Laurel since.
(A way for people to hear both versions has been created – you can Google it.)
only yanny, as hard as i try i cant hear laurel
I watched a vid from an audio tech/expert. He says, besides the quality of your audio, the higher frequency part of the sound is yanny, and the lower frequency part is laurel. As he changed the pitched from lower to higher, it became yanny, which I was unable to hear before. He actually said that by looking at the graph the sound generates, it doesn’t look like the patterns are of human origin, rather manufactured, based on anything he’s seen before.
RebYidd it also has to do with the sound settings and your device, so if you heard it on a different device or volume it could change that as well.
the people that say YANNY is just for hock its LAUREL!!!!!NO SHAILAH!!!!
I heard both, depending on where it is being played and on what devices. It has to do with the pitches that a person can hear.
The Fighting Sefardi is correct, if you change around Laurel and Yanny. It’s Yanny, period!
