It's very subtle unless you're a linguist or a north Walian speaker! Essentially the southern [ɪ] is like English "i" in "pit", whereas northern [ɨ̞] is the same but with the tongue drawn slightly further back in the mouth. Not a lot of south Walians can hear the difference either, so don't worry about it. Stick with English "pit".
