Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

Are you a 'Lauren' or a 'Yanny'?

I'm a 'Yanny'.

Well that clearly sounds like laurel.

On the NYT it's clearly laurel at 7.5. After that the el starts to sound like "ie" but also sounds highly distorted from the original. By 10.0 it sounds like a low pitch "Laurie". the first vowel definitely is not a "ah" sound and the "r" never sounds like "n", so I don't know what is the deal with the Yanny people.

My slier doesn't have numbers so I'm going 0 to 10, 5 in middle.

Neither. I hear M sounds. More like "yammer".

The best answer I heard was "It depends on your speakers".  I heard Lauren when people were playing it at work, and Yanny on TV.

Clearly it's a Lauren because if it was a Yanny the two Ns would look more alike than they do :)

That is a very good piece of work.

I've had mixed results from this. There's some kind of hysteresis in effect.

Going by RC's scale, the switch-over point is around 6.5 for me if I start from 10.0 and go downwards slowly, or 7.5 if I start from 5.0 and go upwards slowly.

I'm old enough that it's definitely Laurel below 6.0.
