Question about English (US)

In the recording, does he say "vowels" or "vowel"?

I'm confused about the sentence:
- that changes the characteristic vowel sound
Do "characteristic" and "vowel" both modify "sound"?

Reference:
Essentially, high notes sound louder with an open jaw and if a vowel requires a singer to sing a high note with a closed jaw, she’ll usually adjust by opening her mouth a little bit more to increase the volume of the note. But that changes the characteristic 【vowel】 sound and makes it harder to understand the word. That means a singer sacrifices meaning for the sake of volume.

Thank you! :)
