2.highest frequency

54000Hz

20000Hz

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

110dB/mW

99dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
