Anyone listen to the latest social media audio debate of, "Yanny" vs "Laurel"?

With or without hearing aids, I hear "Hammy", not Yanny or Laurel. :lol: :lol:
( Actually, with hearing aids, by the 3rd Hammy then I clearly hear Yanny. :lol: Guess there is a delay in my processing. :lol: )

I think it's about quality of audio recording and transmission, along with pitch.

I have my hearing aids in and very clearly hear Laurel. Had I just heard the sound without the graphic, it would still be clearly Laurel. Not even close to Yanni.

Question to those that wear hearing aids. Can you connect to Bluetooth? My sons MIL can connect her hearing aid to Bluetooth. She paid $13,000 out of pocket for her device. :shock: :shock:
