Nettles has analyzed the frequency of the recording and concluded, "To make a judicious choice, I would need to have the original sound file and observe unbiased experts as they process the file in real time".

If you are reading this, you are likely one of the more than 14 million people who vehemently believe that this audio clip is saying either the word "yanny" or the word "laurel".

Patricia Keating, a linguistics professor and the director of the phonetics lab at UCLA, said: "It depends on what part (what frequency range) of the signal you attend to".

Everything from the speakers or headphones you're using, to your computer's soundcard can affect which frequencies get through. "And I want to know if the people hearing Yanny saw a blue and black dress and the people hearing Laurel saw a white and gold one", she wrote.

The debate got so big that even National Football League teams started arguing about it. Take the Panthers for instance - they couldn't seem to agree on what exactly they were hearing.

"So even if both people are listening to the same sound, they might disagree because they just have different ear prints". "'Definitely Laurel.' 'Laurel?' Laurel, it's not Yanny at all", says Melissa Atkins. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted that everything at her show stopped to see what people heard.

Laurel or Yanny debate

But if muddy audio or an unfamiliar speech pattern is all it takes to fool the brain, how can we trust anything we hear?

Finally, go back to the first clip.

The brain is left to interpret what we are hearing and make its own guess.
