Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank 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, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Devialet Gemini's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and of liquids that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
In comparison 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
The Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are easier to carry.
The Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen), at 10.6g are heavier than the Devialet Gemini with a difference of 2.6g

Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) too have ANC which makes both devices ideal for flights and morning commutes. Each operate with different noise cancellation modes, pick the setting that you prefer for commute or that suites your relaxation time.

A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the sound made by the earbuds.
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 , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component 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 means 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 measures if and how well a particular audio component generates high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen)'s highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level 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 before recharge. 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 earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and the Devialet Gemini's case has a full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge 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 requires 1.5 hours to fully charge the Devialet Gemini's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully 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 capacity 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
