The sound is good but definately promotes BASS and down-plays the treble (voices). I put my IPOD equalizer on the TREBLE setting so that helped some but the BASS is the fore-front output. Maybe if I didn't live in a condo and could turn it really loud it'd be better? I'm glad I got it and it works just like it should. I just wish I could hear the singing voice more. I'd buy it again, no doubt.
