Yanny or Laurel: What do you hear?

The next great internet debate is upon us, but this one requires your ears instead of your eyes.

Do you hear Laurel or Yanni?

That’s the defining question for the internet today as a four-second Twitter post went viral, attracting the attention of people such as Ellen DeGeneres, Yanni and Chrissy Tiegen.

The computer-generated sound clip, which emerged late Monday night, has people vehemently defending what they’re hearing. Some are explaining that the difference is due to the quality of the recording, the speakers, and even the age of the listener. Over the next few days there’s sure to be experts weighing in on the debate but for now, the audio argument will rage on.

It’s the biggest online debate since the blue dress vs. the gold dress..

Here is some of the chatter on Twitter.
