    Except... I heard something on your sound clip that wasn't Yanny or Laurel.

    Yep, plenty say the same although it's more for the "yanny" sound than "laurel".
    Well this is fun isn't it?

    Must have something to do with frequencies, device speakers, and our auditory system? All those are outside my knowledge base.
    It's all in the mind of the perceiver. It says Yanny if you expect it to....says Laurel for the same reason.

    Listen to the loop until the name becomes simple noise, like saying a word over and over until it loses its conceptual meaning. Then repeat to yourself the opposite name you initially heard, in its place each time, rythmically..until the name suddenly changes, seeminly out of the blue.

    Don't try too hard, relax yet be insistent. It may take a few minutes.
