I actually can hear what you’re talking about. I played it a few times in a row and I started to hear “homaru” also. I think it may just be either an “audio illusion” or maybe the audio is clipped too close to the start of the speaking and cuts off a piece of the t-sound.
Just wanted to let you know that you’re not losing your hearing or going crazy, unless we both are!
And I’d like to invite everyone else to open their minds when they listen to the audio and maybe you’ll hear the h sound also.
EDIT: Also could it be the speakers? I’m listening on shitty laptop speakers.
