The great internet debate: Yanny or Laurel

Several classmates posted the audio to Instagram and Reddit, and it went viral from there.

He says one theory for the two words is auditory perception.

Circulating elsewhere on the internet was the line: "Man Calls Girlfriend "Yanny" During Sex, Swears He Said "Laurel". "And Laurel, I hear Laurel, and that sounds like very a low kind of deep voice". She seems to be, understandably, Team Laurel.

Buzzfeed did some digging and was able to find out from the original poster that the clip is saying the word Laurel, not Yanny. "C'mon. How many Laurel fans here huh?"

"If you hear Yanny and not Laurel I don't trust you", user Quincy Quarter-Zips tweeted.
