However, they report that age isn't the only reason that the audio may be heard differently by different people.

That was the question Wednesday as a short audio clip sparked a social media debate about whether the word being heard is "yanny" or "laurel".

"Everybody has a different opinion, but I clearly hear Yanny", broadcaster Mario Impemba insisted.

Give it a listen.

"What you hear doesn't mean you have better hearing or poor hearing", said Ryan McCreery, director of research at Boys Town National Research Hospital.

A straw poll carried out among staff in AFP's Washington bureau counted 17 for Yanny, and 14 for Laurel.

The viral tweet posted by Feldman was actually taken from a post on Reddit, as she has explained.

Story says the two words have similar patterns that could be easy to be confused. "If you lose the high frequencies, the illusion goes away".

Everyone is listening to the clip and revealing whether they hear the word Laurel or the word Yanny. It is known that some sounds are audible only to people under 25.

Nobody can tell if this recording says "Yanny" or "Laurel".

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