Kai: Ruined Gohan's voice for the anime and the games. Sounds like a little girl. I was fine with it when he was a kid, but when he was ssj2 gohan it made me turn it off. Same goes for 18. The new girly voice doesn't really seem like it fits. I mean she is one of the cyborgs that kills everyone in the world. The voice acting was great though. Darn you for getting rid of Stephanie! I cannot play Teen Gohan in this condition!
Japanese: Almost everyone sounded like a girl.
Funi: Pro, voices matched everyone. Just the voice acting was a bit old.

I preferred the FUNI dub of Dragonball Z over the Ocean Dub and Dbz Kai. I would choose all of them over the Japanese version simply because I don't speak or understand any Japanese, so why would I watch something that I couldn't understand?

Original Funi dub for me. Cant stand the Japanese dub. Goku's voice is horribly whiny and it makes him sound like he is 12

Well in my childhood, there was only one(other than the Jp versions) and that was dbz Funi dubbed. So, I grew up with it and stand by it to this day.

Funimation dubbed ftw  8).
Dbz Japanese sounds weird especially Goku's voice.
Dbzkai ruined goku turning super saiyan for the first time you can tell the difference if you watch it.

In order:

1. Original Japanese
2. Kai dub
3. Japanese Kai
4. FUNi dub for Dragon Ball and later parts of Z
5. Ocean dub for early parts of Z
6. FUNi dub for early parts of Z

I'm mostly a manga person, though. Never really cared for FUNi's original dub, though I'll admit it got better as it went on. I'll be honest, I used to be a dub-hating naughtyword, but some aspects of it have certainly grown on me. I doubt I'll ever watch it the whole way through, though -- it's more like a novelty. I think that the Ocean dub in general was terrible with script accuracy, but once again, I'm viewing it as a novelty and I think the voice acting in it was better than when FUNimation took over. (not to insult them or anything -- they were new to voice acting at that point in time, so they naturally wouldn't be as good as they are today)

I like this question,

I would pick Original Japanese but since I have no idea what they are saying, I opt out of watching this. Why would I watch something that I can't understand? Even with subtitles.

Nothing beats FUNimation.

Honestly? I'm perfectly comfortable watching Dragon Ball raw, with no subtitles. It's a series that has a reasonably straightforward plot and I've read the manga enough times before that I can just sit back and watch Japanese people yell at each other.

Watching anime in Japanese is rarely about understanding what they're saying, though. It's really about enjoying the performance of the voice actors and the product as it was originally presented. It's like how some people prefer to watch foreign movies while others want a lip sync or whatever over top of it -- or just completely ignore foreign movies.

What made me like FUNimation is that I grew up with that dub. When I started watching it when I was 6/7 years old, it was always FUNimation (with sometimes Ocean dub on weekends, complete garbage).

The first time I heard the original dub was when I was seventeen, not for me.

Yup. Same for me. The roots of my childhood.

I heard the FUNimation dub first too, though I was probably around 12 or 13 when I first heard the Japanese voice actors.

Personally, I think it's a bit -- and I mean this in the kindest way I can phrase it -- closed-minded to not enjoy a different take on a series because it's not what you're used to. I feel like nostalgia in general blinds us to the truth a bit. It reminds me a bit of how fans of '80s cartoons automatically shun any remake of their beloved childhood series because it's not the same -- even when, if you take the time to actually watch both versions of the show, it's clear the modern iteration is almost always more finely polished. Not that it's objectively better or that this in particular holds true for Dragon Ball; I'm merely making a comparison.

People don't dislike Kai's dub, it's imo the best English one. They dislike kai as a whole because it doesn't include filler and it originally (not sure if the buu saga continuation is true or not) end where toriyama wanted it to. With the earth protected from all villains, goku in heaven so as not to attract more villains, and Gohan taking over as the guardian of earth with his new found power. I love kai as both a dub and a series because the filler has more plot a other stuff, but I'm all about the action to be honest. Just my opinion.

Ocean dub was OP. The Ocean dub was only available for us until FUNimation took over in the Frieza saga. I still have the first DBZ boxsets which have the Ocean dub and also the later FUNimation re-recordings. While I don't have a preference I quite liked the Ocean dub. The only exception is the Kai re-dub. I genuinely disliked that.

Japanese Kai - The best for me, the only problem I have is that good sounds like a little girl. You get used to it though. Oh and the K-K-K-K-K when someone's hurt, that's just annoying.
Funi DBZ - Second best, because of the soundtrack and Goku's voice.
Original Japanese - I really don't like the music in that one. Not for DBZ, I can handle DB though.
Never watched Ocean or Funi Kai...

Funi for the music and later dubbed

Kai for the animation and the dub.
