    I’m assuming you are asking about the recordings and not the plays themselves? The Arkangel Shakespeare recordings are very well done. I enjoy them greatly. It helps to be familiar with the story, as keeping track of the characters can sometimes be difficult without visuals, but they have great casts with distinctive voices which helps. They have original music and plenty of sound effects.
