Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection given by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of IPX4, the Devialet Gemini's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Devialet Gemini, Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

Both Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Devialet Gemini have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes both devices ideal for flights and morning commutes. Each operate with different noise cancellation modes, pick the mode that you prefer for commute or that suites your relaxation time.

Both Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen), and Devialet Gemini have passive noise reduction this implies that both tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
Devialet Gemini have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, its size dictates the loudness of the device.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 1mm , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they produce better quality sound.
Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Devialet Gemini can make sound with a juicier bass than the Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)
The Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices produce equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure of sound, in decibels, dB, Devialet Gemini's measurement is 94dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Devialet Gemini's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s battery life is equal to that of the Devialet Gemini . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and the Devialet Gemini's case has a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s charging case has a battery life of 24 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 6 hours
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the Devialet Gemini's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) takes 1 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Devialet Gemini by 0.5 hours
Devialet Gemini's battery power is 55mAh, battery power, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s battery power is 49.7mAh. less than that of Devialet Gemini by 5.3mAh
