    Ы — http://www.forvo.com/search-ru/%D1%8B/
    Hear the difference between Мышь (a mouse) http://www.forvo.com/word/%D0%BC%D1%8B%D1%88%D1%8C/#ru and Миша (a name Michael) http://www.forvo.com/word/%D0%BC%D0%B8%D1%88%D0%B0/#ru

    About Ь (soft sign) hear the difference between Роль (a role) http://www.forvo.com/word/%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%BB%D1%8C/#ru and Ролл (a roll) http://www.forvo.com/word/%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%BA-%D0%BD-%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%BB/#ru

    Ы is pronounced as hard и. Try to say и with your mouth opened twice as much. ь is not pronounced. It is a softener of a consonant that goes before it. That's why it is literally called "soft sign".
