Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

5Hz

5Hz

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

35000Hz

42000Hz

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

100dB/mW

100dB/mW

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

40 Ohms

44 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
5.driver unit size

53mm

53mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
