Non-Bluetooth Latency

What it is: The amount of delay introduced by the headphones. This could cause the audio and video to become out of sync. This test is performed with the wireless transmitter and represents an average of 3 different runs. The results are specific to our test setup since the PC or platform (website, software) you are watching content on could also impact latency.
When it matters: When watching videos or playing video games wirelessly, high latency can cause sync issues between the images you see and the audio you hear.
Good value: <75 ms
Noticeable difference: 30 ms
