IP ratings is the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
Having a value of 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, 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
Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We prefer a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.

Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers, what this means is that Devialet Gemini's speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
ANC utilises advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and generates a mirror signal to counter it. In simple terms, it's like taking +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Devialet Gemini have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the earbuds ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. The Devialet Gemini and Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX operate with different noise cancellation settings, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for travel or that suites your relaxation time.
The Devialet Gemini stay tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that tones down your environment noise and also prevents the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
Devialet Gemini driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines 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 usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they deliver better quality sound.
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 on its way through.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Devialet Gemini make sound with a juicier bass than the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well a particular audio device generates high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can generate equal treble
SPL, is the level of pressure 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.
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 given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's battery life is more than that of Devialet Gemini by 2 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing time. The effect is barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will no longer play for long like they used to.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and the Devialet Gemini's case has a full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many 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
It takes 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.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini's battery power is 55mAh, battery power, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX's battery power is 70mAh. more than that of Devialet Gemini by 15mAh
