Yanny or laurel? The nonsense question splitting the internet

Partly sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid 70s are in the forecast today for Auburn and Cayuga County. North northeast wind 5 to 7 miles per hour becoming light and variable in the evening.

A four-second audio clip has triggered a huge divide on the internet.

"Watched this for 5 min and heard yanny...watched it 5 min later and I hear laurel". We also all process external stimuli differently.

That explanation was roundly dismissed by many on Twitter, however a select few claimed they managed to hear both Yanny and Laurel. Where else can you switch "Yanny" or "Laurel" teams-even just for a moment?

But that doesn't necessarily explain why someone would hear the lower or higher frequencies.
