The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.has passive noise reduction
AKG K3003
AKG N5005
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
3.highest frequency

30000Hz

40000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
