Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

3Hz

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

100000Hz

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

30 Ohms
