The sentence is pronounced as 'Ee men' ?

The n and m sort of glide together, but I (as a native speaker) hear the n in the audio here. I can see how it could be missed though!

What about the "d?" I am clearly still in the dark about Danish pronunciation!

The d in mand is silent:)

I am hoping that one day I will be able to understand Danish media though my chances of visiting Denmark are very slim.

The the consonants usually glide together in this language? I've listened to the pronunciation of the words in the basic lessons, and if I'm hearing them correctly then it seems that not every letter is pronounced at in a language like, say, Spanish. Would it be wiser to wear headphones?

Yeah, it's a good idea to wear headphones, but you are right. In danish letters can glide together or not even be pronounced at all.

❤❤❤❤❤❤ I didn't see your reply, duolingo sometimes doesn't show me the replies until I leave one for whatever reason??? Does anyone know what I could do? I also don't get any notifications of people leaving replies to me, does anyone even get them? Help?

Yes, but the words and pronunciation definitely aren't as clear as Spanish like you've said, so I'm afraid headphones won't fix much, but you'll get used to it :)

I'm not hearing the "d" pronounced in "mand" but I wonder if that's the audio quality or it's not really pronounced. Can anyone clarify this?

    The d in "mand" is silent, but there is a kind of glottal stop at the end known as the "stød" in Danish (if you know any IPA then it is pronounced [ˈmanˀ])

    The answer "er mand" is also accepted without an info about typo
