You've probably seen the 'Yanny vs Laurel' audio clip that has been all over social media (and the evening news). Simply, people listen to the same audio recording, but some hear 'Yanny' and others hear 'Laurel'. It's not really a mystery: " The secret, it turns out, is frequency. The part of the sound that makes some people hear Yanny is higher frequency than that which makes some people hear Laurel." What's interesting to me is this as an example of how people han have exactly the same evidence but come to completely different conclusions.
