Recording problem in dictation exercise "Le Hellfest de Clisson"?

I was just listening to this exercise and came upon this sentence:

En une quinzaine d'années, c'est devenu le rendez-vous incontournable des amateurs de musiques dites "extrêmes".

The word quinzaine does not appear to be correctly recorded, it sounds way off to my ears.

Hi Chris, 

I have listened to the passage you mention a couple of times and I can hear 'quinzaine' clearly on my desktop computer.

Let's see if anyone else reports it.

This 'Hellfest' sounds like my idea of hell to me !!!!

Bonjour Chris,

I listened to the recording several times and (to my native ears ;-) ) I can hear "quinzaine" clearly too.

Bonne journée !

Clearly, my ears were out of whack. :) After listening again, I now can hear quinzaine as well. 

Thanks to both of your for the clarification.
