Please just help us out here.

The latest debate on social media is all about "Yanny vs. Laurel" and celebs are debating what they hear in this clip that is spreading like insane! [Editor's note: It was not in unison.] The pair each tried a number of headphones ranging from nice to incredibly crappy and still heard only "Laurel".

While some people are clearly hearing one word, there are many people who say they eventually hear the other word after listening over and over again. The two younger members of Select All heard "Yanny", while the older two heard "Laurel". "There is no N sound".
