I dunno how its any worse (cropping and color saturation aside) just not much better. The 1999 dub is laughably bad the 2007 partial redub is barely improved and keeps to much of the garbage from 1999 to ultimately matter. They put the Japanese score back in and Nadolny and Sabat sound slightly less awful (until they don’t) that was their big improvement. Also the narrator is slightly less embarrassing.
It really is just barely better than the old Season 3 dub but in reality not by a whole lot, and aside from the whole consistency thing with the UUE version of the Saiyan and early Namek arcs it feels very patchwork and haphazard with how FUNi approached the redubbing. Just hearing Sabat's much improved circa 2005/2007 Vegeta speaking to Schemmel's wooden sounding Goku from 1999 is jarring as hell every time. They are so badly mismatched with one another by nearly a decade's worth of difference that it's almost comical, because Season 3 as awful as it was at least had the cast's voices fit even given their amatuerness while the OB redub doesn't at all. They only went so far before pretty much leaving things as is from Trunks' arrival onwards.

Honestly, as i mentioned in the thread i did about the redub a while back it really didn't amount to all that much in the long run because Kai came along not to soon after that point which turned out to be their best effort by far and basically rendered the partial redub effectively obsolete almost immediately as far as a faithful version goes.
