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.
|Frequency||Frequency Range in Hz||Characteristics|
|Sub-bass||20Hz to 60Hz||Rumble, Depth|
|Bass||60Hz to 250Hz||Punch, Boom|
|Lower Mids||250Hz to 500Hz||Muddiness|
|Middle Mids||500Hz to 2000Hz||Harshness|
|Higher Mids // Treble||2000Hz to 6000Hz||Harshness, Sibilance|
|Highs // Treble||6000Hz to 20000Hz||Definition, Pierce, Sibilance|
