Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against solids and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Devialet Gemini's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 4 means 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, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX have a rating of IP57 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX has a higher liquid rating than Devialet Gemini

The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX also have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to 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 (noise) then adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
Devialet Gemini have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to overcome background noise.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX too have Active Noise Cancellation making both earbuds ideal for flights and rush hour commutes. The Devialet Gemini and Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX work with different noise cancellation settings, pick the mode that suits your travel or that suites your relaxation time.

The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the sound produced by the earbuds.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX driver unit is 9.2mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 0.8mm , a common assumption that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yes, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio component produces low audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini make sound with a juicier bass than the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it changes to the signal on its way through.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level of sound, measured 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.
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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's battery life is more than that of Devialet Gemini by 2 hours . Each time you recharge your device, 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 vendor, and Devialet Gemini's case is said to have a full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's charging case has a battery life of 20 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 2 hours
