I'm American and "one" and "done" rhyme for me.
For me, "done" would be like the one by TopQuark.
"one" would be like the one by SimonPMounsey. Interestingly the Irish one by Caitria sounds like it might have the same vowel as "done".
Could just be me though.
(I've no idea if there's a way to link to a specific pronunciation on forvo ... I spent a minute looking and didn't find any way to do so).
Oh interesting! So the "done" sounds like a normal RP /ʌ/ vowel (which is usually more of an [ɐ]) but "one" sounds more like /wɒn/ to me, with the same vowel as "cloth". Does "one" rhyme with "on" for you?
I'm taking a look at Wiktionary and it gives /wʌn/ as the Received Pronunciation pronunciation, but then it gives /wɒn/ as the "UK" pronunciation which seems a bit contradictory to me.
