Sound quality

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.
3.sound pressure level

122dB

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (HyperX QuadCast)

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.
Audio interface bit depth/rate describes the number of bits of information recorded for each sample. Bits represent the resolution. The more bits, the more accurate sound is reproduced.
6.Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Blue Yeti X)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (HyperX QuadCast)

A higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) means that the microphone can record a cleaner audio signal with less background noise, particularly as the volume level is raised.

20000Hz

20000Hz

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