You are paying far more if you want to host that yourself by conventional means and you have to link to a physical file while SoundCloud embedding is commonplace on various forums.

Bandwidth is cheap but not free. You want availability; you pay for it. Nothing strange about this.

Cheaper than that is dumping it on Youtube; but forget downloads in that case.
