Alright - that makes sense.
What doesn’t make sense is me using any amp over 5 watts...
My wife says she hears an electronic-sounding but distinct "laurel".
I hear, in possibly the crappiest audio quality I've ever heard, "eealee".
Update: This morning I listened again several times, and heard "laurel" each time.
It's clearly these guys after the game, bombed out of their minds and slurring their speech...
I guess the flip side is why post links at all? Geez, buy 'em books and they chew on the covers!
My wife and I were watching the news tonight and it's funny, she once again proved she's smarter than me. She heard the yanny, I hear the laurel. We replayed it, and got the same thing. Me, I'm just a dump a$$, my wife is the smart one around here. (And Toto, of course he heard yanny.)
My wife heard “laurel” and I’ll check her out later, because something is obviously wrong.
WHAT??? LAUREL??? My wife said she heard "laurel" too but she's an Aussie and I always expect the oddest from them. I totally heard "yanni". Totally.
the real question is.... Ginger or Maryann
I heard “Bob”.
Was that not an option?
I can still hear the 15K sound on "Sgt. Pepper" and I heard Laurel...Seriously, if folks can t agree on an actual word no wonder theres tonewood hearers and tonewood deniers.
Well from my computer with earbuds I hear "Yanny" everytime, with the NYT tool I have to move it towards the 1st marker to the left to start hearing "Laurel", but if I bring it back to the middle... definitely "Yanny"
I'm happy to see (hear) speech science in the news (I'm a psycholinguist and my wife is a speech researcher). My guess (I hear both) is that this is a superposition of two wave forms and that where the slider is, determines where each individual's crossover point is. I would bet that if you applied a low-pass filter to the whole signal you would only hear "Laurel," and with a high-pass filter, you would only hear "Yanny." In speech there is a well known phenomenon called "categorical perception." Generally speaking, the data come from experiments in which you ask listeners to say (for example) whether they hear a "p" or a "b" when you play them a stimulus. The only variation between stimuli is the amount of "voice onset time," (VOT) which is the amount of time between when the lips close and when the vocal folds begin to vibrate. Short VOTs are perceived as "voiced" (b, d, g) while long VOTs are perceived as "voiceless" (p, t, k). When you first create stimuli it's pretty remarkable: you record a person (or synthesizer) saying "b" (again, as an example), then just add varying amounts of silence (or zero-centered noise) to the beginning, and at some point your perception of the identity of the phoneme changes completely. However, for each person, this category boundary is different. While the phenomenon here is not identical to categorical perception, it is similar: i.e. perception is more than just the transduction of acoustic energy.
I heard Laurel, but in the tool in the first link when panned to the right side I heard "Yowie". There was no "n" sound at all, so it couldn't have been Yanny.
at dead center I heard Lamme , at -1.25 I heard laurel and between -1.25 to 0.0 blended into a simulated autotune Lamme, possible because Laurel was a lower pitch and Yanney was a higher pitch that had a phase cancelation in the stereo field I found the bottom end started to disapate at 0.0
I watched that yesterday and heard "yammy". Today, the same clip/ same setup is laurel.
There was a piece in nyt about this. I'll post a link if I can find it
The link is in Post #1.
