I heard Laurel last night but I heard Yanny this morning. Some expert of something said it depends on where a person puts their focus. Try focusing on Yanny and see if what you heard the first time changes.

Can only ever hear Laurel in an American accent. I did also read that your own accent can help determine what you hear.

It sounds exactly like "Laurel" and nothing like "Yanny" whatsoever.

RE: Which Do You Hear
How can you hear Yanny?!?!?! Those two words are completely different.

WHATTTTTTT 47% hear Yanny? WTF but again, those words sound nothing like each other wtf.

So 47% of people always thought Laurel and Hardy were Yanny and Hardy? WTF lol. It makes no sense at all the pronunciation is completely different!

Why do we never get people talking of the famous comedy duo Yanny and Hardy then?

EDIT: LOL in that video he said the soundwaves were similar when they looked very different lol. They sound different and look different. Makes no sense. Some people may be primed to hear Yanny but the actual sound is clearly Laurel and those two words are both spelled and pronounced completely differently.

It's like saying "Do you hear Yogurt or cabbage?" lol.

One starts and ends in a "y" sound the other starts and ends in an "l" sound. One has a strong "n" sound in it the other does not. It's not even close to being similar in pronunciation. What a joke.

EDIT 2: WTF the pitch being brought down thing is weird because this suggests he's not really saying Yanny or Laurel. If he's really saying Laurel then that sounds nothing like Yanny. This is why it's Laurel and Hardy and not Yanny and Hardy.

EDIT 3: Oh my ears are accurate then. It's Laurel.

Depending on what I focus on I hear "Laurel", or "Yuri" (or perhaps "Yeri"). I don't see what the big deal is - clearly there are two different modulations applied to the sound, at different frequencies, so different interpretations are obviously possible, especially, that it doesn't sound like a natural human voice. 

Besides, a great deal of what we hear is dependent on visual information - it's called McGurk effect.  Sounds as different as "b" and "f", for example, can be easily confused by our brain, even when dealing with actual human speech.
