Most folks I have spoken to and from what I have read hear Laurel - only a few like me hear Yanni. My daughter hears only Yanni.

I heard nothing but Yanni on my cheap PC speakers. Then on my way home frorm work yestrday, the radio staion I was listening to played and I clearly heard only Laurel on my bass heavy car stereo.

I am curious if people sharing the same sound source in the same room ever hear it differently?

I did this yesterday Scott. I played it on my good quality system with sub- and Chris heard Laurel and I heard Yanni.

I'm hearing Laurel. With the boost in the video swept into the kHz range, I got Yanni. It did sound like a weird recording artifact, though, and listening to the original again, Yanni is there, but 10-15dB down compared to the very obvious Laurel.

Human perception is always willing to fill in the missing information trying to make sense of bad or incomplete input. There is apparently a lot of common information shared by the two words. What we perceive depends somewhat on how we fill in the missing gaps, somewhat on media playback integrity, but the recording is intentionally challenged to create the ambiguous perception. 

I don't think there is a correct answer while reportedly the original word was Laurel several corrupted media generations ago. YMMV

The hearer's ears play a huge part in this.  If I have deficiencies in one band or sensitivities in another I will hear differently than others.
It is a neat phenomenon.  The weirdest thing is that someone found (or thought to look for this).  Satanic rituals, I say.  ;D

another side to this if you use the iPhone and headphones, lots of the people have the eq selected in settings for bass boost or other selections so they are not listening the the  flat recording and have a system that is boosting to help their hearing needs.

Internet click bait, not unlike that dress visual perception trick that looked like different color combinations to different people.  Life is short but people still have too much time on their hands.

All i could hear is Yanni no matter how many times I played it.
