:point:

Yes,have to say that with the pitch test things change dramatically,I think he's having us on!  :giggle:

I see white and gold,and heard Yanni,only TV and laptop as sources.

Amazingly interesting (and confusing!) results!  :nfi:
Would be great to have a scientific/psychological attempt to explain!

According to ASAP Science, the recording is actually "Laurel" but with some additional layering.

If anything, this experiment proves how different everybody hears and that audiophile equipment reviews are unreliable.

Well,fortunately not too many recordings are compound/layered  :giggle:

As for reviews,they still lead us into temptation,and are still 'valid' imo,just not alpha and omega for all...

Predictably, me " Laurel " exclusively ( except in Trompie's first two permutations ) and my wife only " Yanni ".  ;D

We've had the dress and shoes for sight, Yanny or Laurel for hearing.
Next up, does this taste like Fanta or Fresca.
