65 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.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
8.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
HyperX Cloud Alpha S
