Apparently, if you have a below average IQ you will hear Yanny. If you are large in the "trouser department" you hear Laurel. Science eh!

Are the people that hear yanny messing about??!! Deffo laurel, heard it on Radio 1 this morning and thought Laurel!
The secret, it turns out, is frequency. The part of the sound that makes some people hear Yanny is higher frequency than that which makes some people hear Laurel.
As Lars Riecke, assistant professor of audition and cognitive neuroscience at Maastricht University, explained to The Verge "If you remove all the low frequencies, you hear yanny. If you remove the high frequencies, you hear laurel.
"If your... ears emphasise both the higher and lower frequencies, you can toggle between the two sounds."

Apparently there is an age element too, as high frequencies are the first to deteriorate as you get older.
..and yes I could only hear Laurel,

Yanny.

Try as I might, I could not hear Laurel.

Does this mean I am of lower IQ, small in the trouser department, or very young? Or all three?

I think this experiment is flawed.
