AN AUDIO clip is dividing the opinions of listeners online.

The clip, which has gone viral, has left some people convinced they have heard the word “Yanny”, while others believe it says the word “Laurel”.

The original audio recording was published by Reddit user RolandCamry who asked people what they could hear in the clip.

In 2015, a similar debate surfaced online over the colour of a blue and black/white and gold dress.
