Yanny or Laurel? Soundbite sparks internet din

Story says the two words have similar patterns that could be easy to be confused.

Whatever you hear, all you need to do is jump on Twitter to see some of the hilarious reactions.

Some speculated that the differences might be related to hearing loss or the age of the listener.

The Internet has lost its mind over the past few days trying to figure out if a popular audio clip is saying "Laurel" or "Yanny", and the Detroit Tigers are just as confused.

First, a black and blue dress - or was it white and gold? - dress divided the internet.

Do you hear "Laurel" or "Yanny"?

I have no idea how anyone else can hear anything but "Laurel" - even when I heard a change in the bass level provided by another tweet. Now that the brain is primed to cut through the noise, you will probably be able to hear "The juice of lemons makes fine punch".

People who hear both words are switching their focus during the audio clip. If you hear Laurel, you're more likely hearing lower frequencies.

Do your speakers have anything to do with what you hear?

What is the recording actually saying?

It can also depend on what you're listening to the clip on and where you're listening, McCreery said. The original poster, user RolandCamry, wrote that he got the clip from the dictionary.com listing for "laurel".
