2.highest frequency

50000Hz

50000Hz

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

104dB/mW

98dB/mW

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

90 Ohms

32 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.has a neodymium magnet
Focal Utopia
Grado PS1000
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
