Adobe Explains the Laurel vs. Yanny Phenomenon

Yesterday I left the internet alone for about an entire hour to watch some quality Netflix streaming, and when I returned I had no idea what anyone was talking about or why they were on the verge of wrestling each other to the ground over a couple people named Yanny and Laurel.

Then I listened and developed my own opinions. And god help any of you that try and change my mind.

Thankfully Adobe’s evangelist of all good things audible, visual and Creative Cloud Jason Levine has come to the rescue using Adobe Audition’s Spectral Display Frequency to help explain WTF is up with this thing.

It turns out how you listen to this, the speed at which you hear it, and your own experience in life (destroying your hearing at rock shows and such) has an effect on what you hear! Jason explains with visuals, EQ, and other good Adobe Audition tools in this live stream.

As Jason expertly quotes from Harry Nilsson: you see what you want to see and you hear what you want to hear. And this is the wholesome content I need on my internet right now.
