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

2.lowest frequency

18Hz

10Hz

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

Best

5Hz

3.impedance

30 Ohms

50 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.

16 Ohms

4.highest frequency

23000Hz

27000Hz

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

Best
