Actually, SSB is a narrow band communication mode and never was intended to 
"sound good".  Hence the existence of good sounding AM remains.  Regardless 
of it being deemed by some to be an outdated mode.

Take any portion of the audio spectrum, chop it to a 2.4KHz bandwidth and 
one has "telephone quality" designed for effective communication.
