Welcome to the audio equivalent of "The Dress." Remember trying to figure out whether that dress spreading through social media in 2015 was black and blue or white and gold? It left the Internet puzzled for days until experts explained the reasons we saw different colors depending on how our brains and eyes perceived them.
