    This is the required way to give the unit power. Common power sources are 120V AC (Common house plugs), batteries, or a combination of the two. If the headphone amplifier uses batteries, this will list the type of batteries that are required. Please refer to the description to find out how many are required for the unit to be properly powered.
    Rechargeable Lithium Polymer Battery
    Sample Rate
    24-bit at 96 kHz
    Digital Inputs
    The type of digital inputs the digital-to-analog converter features.
    S/PDIF Optical (TOSLINK)
    Frequency Response
    The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
    20 - 20,000 Hz
    THD (Total Harmonic Distortion)
    The amount of change in harmonic content of the signal as it is amplified. A lower figure indicates less change and a more accurate amp. THD below 0.10% is inaudible.
    Output Impedance
    This is the amount of impedance that the microphone allows.
