‘Optical Illusion for Ears’ Causing Nationwide Debate

The country is divided over what’s being called an “optical illusion for your ears.”

Is it “yanny” or “laurel”?

The unusual audio clip has gone viral and even sparking debates on Capitol Hill.

A Los Angeles audiologist says we actually hear with our brain and not our ears and the sound frequency of this clip is low quality, forcing listeners to fill in the gaps, which is why Americans can’t agree on what is being heard.
