Audio Frequencies Cheat-Sheet


As you read our reviews you may find that sometimes we name some audio frequencies and it may be confusing at times; so we decided to make and share with you a simplified chart showing what Sub-bass, Bass, Mids/Vocals and Highs/Treble correspond on the different audio frequencies.

Audio frequencies are written in Hz; for example: 2000Hz.
