The molecules of the title compounds, C16H15NOS2, (I), and C16H13Br2NOS2, (II), are E,E-isomers and consist of an extensive conjugated system, which determines their molecular geometries. Compound (I) crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c. It has one thiophene ring disordered over two positions, with a minor component contribution of 0.100 (3). Compound (II) crystallizes in the noncentrosymmetric orthorhombic space group Pca21 with two independent molecules in the unit cell. These molecules are related by a noncrystallographic pseudo-inversion center and possess very similar geometries. The crystal packings of (I) and (II) have a topologically common structural motif, viz. stacks along the b axis, in which the molecules are bound by weak C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. The noncentrosymmetric packing of (II) is governed by attractive intermolecular Br⋯Br and Br⋯N interactions, which are also responsible for the very high density of (II) (1.861 Mg m−3)
