Harsh Sibilants in playback

Example - - When ever Diana speaks it's all sharp Ssssses .

I have a Sound Blaster card and Logitech speakers and that video does have sharp s sounds. I think it's just the audio mastering or perhaps Youtube's compression is doing something to it. You can probably tweak your EQ but it's going to kill the high end on everything else too.
