DO MY EARS DE­CEIVE ME?

Herald Sun - - NEWS -

AN au­dio snip­pet with just two syl­la­bles has ig­nited an in­ter­net melt­down, di­vid­ing so­cial me­dia users into op­pos­ing camps: do you hear “Yanny” or “Lau­rel?”

The col­lec­tive sen­sory ex­per­i­ment caus­ing a Twit­ter tizzy mush­roomed from a short au­dio clip orig­i­nally pub­lished by a high school stu­dent on Red­dit.

Roland Sz­abo, 18, said he recorded the seem­ingly in­nocu­ous au­dio from a vo­cab­u­lary web­site while do­ing a project for his school in the US state of Ge­or­gia.
