My wife and I were approached today be a local television reporter about our thoughts on the computer generated recording that went viral. When played, some people hear “Laurel” and others hear “Yanny”.  We both heard “Laurel”, However, after returning to our office, we pulled it up on a laptop the exact same recording from the same website and we both heard “Yanny”. Now, I can actually hear both!

This is VERY cool. Let us know in the comments what you hear.
