[Products] Badminton Strings Hitting Sound!

Here are some instructions on choosing your perfect badminton string by listening to its hitting sound. We’ve recorded the hitting sound of our strings while smashing and visualized its loudness and frequency to see the difference between each strings.

You might hear some players saying “The smash sounds so clear and explosive, that person must be professional”, “What’s your stringing tension?”, or “Which model has the loudest hitting sound?” It seems very usual for us to look at the string’s elasticity, material, and some specification data because that’s what the manufacturer told us. There’s no one who takes a serious study on the hitting sound, so here we are!

 

After releasing the JS-61 ultra-thin string, the collection of JNICE’s badminton string is almost completed. Here is another gear shopping instruction for all badminton lovers: The Real Hitting Sound of JS Collection – Presented by JNICE.

 

The first measurement of hitting sound is loudness (measured in dB), and the definition of loudness is that when we apply an equal force on two different gauges of strings, the thinner string produces the louder sound. Because the thinner the string is, the greater the amplitude is. With the collection of JS-61, JS-65Carbon, JS-66TI, JS-67, JS-68TI, JS-69, JS-70, and JS-70TI. We can see the loudness comparison below.

The red line proportion on the circle shows the duration of the hitting sound. The width of the red line shows the level of sound amplitude. Apparently, JS-61 produces the loudest sound.

The second measurement of hitting sound is Frequency (measured in Hz). The brief explanation of frequency is: Higher sound frequency makes high pitched sound, and a thin, tough, and tight string creates high frequency. If we add an additional titanium metal material into the string, the frequency could even be higher. Let’s take a look at the frequency comparison below.

We have captured and visualized the moment of the highest frequency from each string. The width of the circle shows the frequency level of the hitting sound. The wider the circle, the higher-pitched the sound is. From the comparison, we can see that the strings with titanium coating produce the higher-pitched sound. Such as JS-65Caron, JS-66TI, JS-68TI, and JS-70TI.  But JS-68TI performs best in this test because of the Kevlar filaments makes it tougher than others.

Now, listen carefully, and choose your favorite string wisely.

The one and only string with the explosive hitting sound. The highest frequency can reach to 1.8KHz. Who says only high tension makes noise? With JS-61, 24-26 lbs makes you sound like Thor on the court.(Click here to check out more)

JS-65 has the loudest hitting sound in the mid-section. Carbon coated string also provides an explosive and a long-lasting echo effects.(Click here to check out more)

The thinnest titanium coated string in our collection. It has a clear and high-pitched sharp metal hitting sound. The highest frequency can reach to 1.9KHz.(Click here to check out more)

Long-lasting compressed hitting sound. 1.6KHz gives an aftershock bass effect. (Click here to check out more)

The beast in our string collection. 2.0KHz heavy metal hitting sounds sharp, tough, hyper. Just like a bomb next to you, just for challenging your sense of hearing. (Click here to check out more)

A thick and durable nylon filament creates a middle-frequency sound. Not sharp, but sonorous.(Click here to check out more)

Compares to JS-69, JS-70 is made with double-layered nylon filament. The low-frequency sound makes it sounds deeper than JS-69.(Click here to check out more)

JS-70TI uses the same double-layered nylon filament as JS-70, but the titanium coating gives it a metal hitting sound. Sounds sharp in the beginning, but the low-pitched sound comes out in the mid and ending section.(Click here to check out more)
