A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

15Hz

15Hz

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

22000Hz

25000Hz

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.
5.impedance

47 Ohms

60 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.
