2.highest frequency

42000Hz

40000Hz

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

44 Ohms

35 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

45mm
