3.impedance

30 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.

Best

Turtle Beach Ear Force XO Seven Pro

16 Ohms

4.lowest frequency

18Hz

20Hz

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.driver unit size

50mm

40mm

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
