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

30000Hz

51000Hz

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

4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)

102dB/mW

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