They sound awful to me, but that's an opinion I guess.... however, I vastly prefer the 80/20's, which are more natural, mellow, and seem to go better with the sound of the plain steel strings.
I compared these stings to the 80/20 Bronze D'Addarios that I usually use, by taking an A string and placing it on my guitar in the 6th position, next to an 80/20 Bronze A string of exactly the same gauge. I then picked each string in different ways and noted the results. I would describe the 80/20 as soft and mellow compared to the phosphor bronze. The PB had a very harsh metallic sound to it that I found distinctly unpleasant. My guitar is a grand concert (folk) size Sunlite, with mahogany body and solid spruce top. I used nylon, celluloid and Ultem picks, and the results were pretty much the same in each case. I really dislike the sound of PB... oh, by the way, the PB flat-tops sound the same as the round-wounds, they just slide quieter and cost twice as much. The other string I tested that gave a more sharp but not unpleasant or metallic sound was the D'Addario Silk and Steels... but they do cost twice as much as the 80/20's or the PB's, and they only make one guage of each string, sold in a set.
As usual, D'Addarios are very well made and accurately sized strings.
Like the 80/20 Bronze strings, these are a low price a set and therefore a great deal.

      I keep changing these sooner than I like, maybe next time I'll try the exp coated ones same brand same gauge they say they improved them. Don't get me wrong with a fresh set these sound great maybe I need to wipe them down more after use.

        If you read the ad where you buy the hummingbird pro epiphone brand they say they use these strings but if you call gibson they tell you they use gibson masterbuilt strings and specs change and there using medium lights 13-56. Well I use the D'Addario lights EJ16 and they feel like the ones that came with the guitar. I may try the masterbuilt in lights 12-53 but I might just be waisting the extra money for them, next string change I will know for sure just if it sounds better with gibson strings.

                  I usually use D'Addario for my electrics, but this was the first time I bought this brand for my acoustic. I wasn't pleased. Sound is dull. Corrosion developed on one of the non-wound strings whithin the first week or two of playing.

                      I have used these for years and love them, they are well priced and last just as long as Elixers that advertise long life. They sound great and feel wonderful.

                          The strings are not individually pacaged. However, the color codes are provided so each string can be put in its proper place.

                            Best strings for the money. I play with a Blue Grass band I find that I can play in a 3 hour jam session and at the end of the jam my strings will stil be in tune. Have been using these stings for quite sometime. Tried other string but kept coming back to the EJ16's
