Sound quality

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

28000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
has active noise cancellation (ANC)
βœ–Razer BlackShark V2 Pro
βœ–Razer Kraken V3 Pro
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
sound pressure level

100dB/mW

96dB/mW

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

32 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.
has a neodymium magnet
βœ–Razer BlackShark V2 Pro
βœ–Razer Kraken V3 Pro
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
has passive noise reduction
βœ”Razer BlackShark V2 Pro
βœ”Razer Kraken V3 Pro
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.

Microphone

has a noise-canceling microphone
βœ”Razer BlackShark V2 Pro
βœ”Razer Kraken V3 Pro
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
highest mic frequency

10000Hz

10000Hz

The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
has a removable microphone
βœ”Razer BlackShark V2 Pro

The microphone can be attached or detached if necessary.
has a mute function
βœ”Razer BlackShark V2 Pro
βœ”Razer Kraken V3 Pro
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
mic sensitivity

-42dBV/Pa

-42dBV/Pa

It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
