Frequency Response



Frequency response describes the spectrum of sounds that the drivers in a headset can reproduce uniformly, without distortion. A higher frequency response number translates to a wider range of available sounds. That said, the size of the available range of headset frequencies may be too small for variance to reflect a detectable difference in overall sound quality.

The goal of a uniform frequency response is to not overemphasize or underemphasize any particular sound; this uniformity is referred to as a "flat" frequency response. When the frequency response is flat, it is theoretically reproducing the audio at the same levels as the original recording or input sound. Look for frequency response range listings that include a decibel qualification (ending with a phrase like "+/- 2 dB"). These listings give a better sense of what the frequency response range can handle without sound distortion.
