Sound quality

1.highest frequency

25000Hz

28000Hz

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

Best

Roccat Khan Pro

40000Hz

2.has sound isolation/passive noise reduction
Kingston HyperX Cloud II
SteelSeries 5Hv2

The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.

3.impedance

60 Ohms

40 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.

Best

Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven Pro

16 Ohms

4.lowest frequency

15Hz

16Hz

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

Best

Beyerdynamic MMX 300 (2nd Generation)

5Hz

5.has a neodymium magnet
Kingston HyperX Cloud II
SteelSeries 5Hv2

Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.

6.sound pressure level

98dB/mW

110dB/mW

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

Best

Razer Kraken 7.1 V2

123dB/mW

Microphone

1.has a noise canceling microphone
Kingston HyperX Cloud II
SteelSeries 5Hv2

These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.

2.mic sensitivity

-39dBV/Pa

-38dBV/Pa

It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.

Best

Creative Sound BlasterX H7

94dBV/Pa

3.highest frequency mic

18000Hz

16000Hz

The highest frequencies that the mic can pick up well. Better for recording treble.

Best

Corsair HS60

100000Hz

4.lowest frequency mic

50Hz

75Hz

The lowest frequencies that the mic can pick up well. Better for recording bass. If a microphone is going to be used for speech, a voice microphone, it must have great gain for bass, since human voice is in the low frequencies.

Best

Ozone Rage Z50

10Hz
