Saw this on the TV yesterday and it seems of the 4 of us in the room at the time, I (62) was the only one who heard 'Laurel' and only 'Laurel'.
Daughter and friend (Late 20's) suggested they could hear a blend of both whereas the Mrs (68) could only hear Yanny?
I understand both words are being voiced simultaneously and with the 'Yanny' at the higher pitch but my high pitch hearing is still reasonable (or so I thought), in spite of my Tinnitus but how come I couldn't hear any of the Yanny? If one tends to lose the high frequencies as we get older, how come the Mrs can only hear 'Yanny'?
Cheers, T i m
