It's a little quiet but I hear він sounding like 'hihd' in this recording. I expected it to sound more like 'veen' from my alphabet guide.
Am I hearing it wrong or is my alphabet wrong?
Your alphabet guide is correct. However, she stressed Де and Він came out a little muffled, maybe that's why it sounds like hihd to you. In general, recording environment that's was used for audio recording leaves something to be desired.
Not a problem my friend, generally throughout the course audio is "ok" quality. If you doing new lessons I would suggest quiet environment and maybe a set of headphones to get a better listening immersion.
