Laurel or Yanny, what do you hear?

 	  Perk those ears! What do you hear

The "Jimmy Kimmel Live" host gave his audience the "Laurel vs. Yanny" test that swept the internet this week, then reached a conclusion on what it really means.

Especially if they heard the word played at either a slower speed or a faster speed.

But where did it all come from?

People hear different sounds in different pitches, which is why the internet can not decide which word the recording is saying. However, she didn't create the audio track.

It is the biggest internet debate since the infamous black and blue - or white and gold - dress of 2015.

Neither did Roland Szabo, an 18-year-old United States high school student, who posted it to Reddit on Monday.

"Any speaker that can replicate enough "low end" or "bass" - you will most likely hear Laurel".

Scottish Parliament Votes To Oppose Brexit Bill
Nicola Sturgeon's government in Edinburgh insists that Holyrood must explicity agree to any changes before they can take effect. Speaking after the vote, he said any move to force legislation on Holyrood would break a "20 year old devolution settlement".

Go to the page for "laurel" (yep, that's officially the word in the clip) and click the audio icon. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted that everything at her show stopped to see what people heard. At first, reporter Ashley Paul could only hear Yanny. The listing's for laurel.

Those who want to check on their hearing can follow this link. The original poster, user RolandCamry, wrote that he got the clip from the listing for "laurel".

Rosevere says different frequencies bring out different sounds of the word. "That could have to do with your hearing or it could also have to do with what you're listening to it on".

Amit Almor is a psychology professor at the University of SC.

"Because it's noisy, your brain is filling in with what it thinks it should be".

The "Yanny or Laurel?" audio file is a one-word snippet of recorded audio which the listener must decide whether the voice is saying the word "Yanny" or "Laurel".
