NEWS HOUR SHARES - Perception, 'Yanny' vs "Laurel'

"Yanny vs. Laurel spotlights our brains’ desire to fill in the gaps" PBS NewsHour 5/16/2018

On my iPhone I hear "Yanny."  On my TV home entertainment system connected to a HI Def Surround Sound Amplifier, I hear "Laurel."  The device does make a difference.
