The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
Audio interface sampling rate/frequency defines the number of samples per unit of time taken from a continuous signal to make a discrete signal. Sampling rate determines the quality of a digital recording.
Microphones with a higher max SPL (sound pressure level) can record at greater volumes without the audio distorting.
The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
