Is this the right sound? It seems too harsh for H, more like Q on the recording

In fact, though Dr. Okrand's descriptions often make it sound like the H should be slightly more forward, he also pronounces the H like this. Klingonists often say that Q is basically qH. The difference between the two letters is the onset, more than the harshness.
