I have no idea how anyone else can hear anything but "Laurel" - even when I heard a change in the bass level provided by another tweet. Where this does matter, she says, and where similar issues are at play, is how people fill in the gaps of their hearing when faced with a noisy context.

Finally, go back to the first clip.
