    Hiya Guys !

    Does anyone here have the frequency response of the Airpod ? Apple does not publish it officially but does anyone have an excerpt from any other source or website ?

    Frequency response is a tad tricky. If I say it's 20/20k that may be true, but to hear anything in the 20hz range, you might need the volume at max, and it may still be only 1% as loud as it should be. We're dealing with something analogue, so it's not can it or can it not, but variations and ranges of audio reproduction.

    Something that markets itself as 40/15k may sound identical to something that markets itself as 2/40k because the extended range of the second is either badly or incorrectly reproduced, or so little volume it cannot be heard

    Yes, I did have an idea that Frequency response can be a little tricky a headphone which claims a certain low response frequency need not always sound that good in BASS, but still I wanted to know this about the AirPod because I wanted to compare it with a competitive product. For me the AirPod Sucks big time in BASS !!

    You can find this info and compare here:

    I actually find the AirPods to have pretty adequate, natural bass. It comes down to personal seal and volume level. Too low and the sound isn’t full, too high and they distort. 75% with a good seal sounds better than expected.
