6m

3m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

10Hz

21Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

39800Hz

18000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction

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