Why is there a limited frequency response range when using Bluetooth?

Sennheiser headphones have a frequency response range that the headphones are capable of reproducing and this is the range that is listed in the technical specifications of the product.

When Bluetooth is being used the actual frequency response range is dictated by the device that the headphones are connected to and the frequency range that the device can transmit audio over Bluetooth. Hence the headphones are limited to the range that the device is transmitting.

For example if the headphones had a frequency range of 15-22,000 Hz but the device that the headphones are connected to can only transmit a frequency range of 19-19,000 Hz then the headphones are limited to this narrower range when connected to this device via Bluetooth.
