The ultimate giddy ear test

Our fridge is *decorated* with lots of magnets on its exterior, and one of these is a set of Fridge Phonics which Ethan loves to play with.  What this Fridge Phonics set does is sing a song corresponding to a particular alphabet together with it’s phonetical sound.

A couple of days ago, Ethan was playing with it, when he suddenly exclaimed, “Oh NO!!  Something’s wrong Mommy, look!”

Apparently the U was NOT pronounced as “U”.  I tried it myself and agreed with him.  The “U” sounded like “N” now.

We then reported this to my hubby, and demonstrated it to him.

Upon the first listen, hubbs looks at me strangely and said, “No…there’s nothing wrong with it.  It says “U”!”

I repeated the process over and over again, but still we held differing opinions, … till now.  I think there is something wrong, but hubbs thinks something is wrong with me, or rather, my hearing.

So what to do?  I got proof….here’s the video clip of what the “U” sounds like.  Please, tell me what you hear so that we can decide who needs to go for an ear checkup.

    ermm…either your hubby has got something wrong with his ears or I have something wrong with mine – I also hear “N” (unless it’s a weird “neUU” which doesn’t make sense!)

    go with ethan’s verdict! 😀

    I heard U at first then as the machine played longer, it sounded like N already…

    …another theory is maybe the machine read the “u” upside down, ie.. “n”…. ;-p
