Ingress protection ratings refer to the level of protection given by an enclosure, 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 such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (water).
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.
Compared to the Devialet Gemini, BLX Earbuds Gen 1 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
Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We take in account a lower weight better because lighter devices are easier to transport.
BLX Earbuds Gen 1, at 44.5g weigh more than the Devialet Gemini with a difference of 36.5g

The BLX Earbuds Gen 1 also have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to actively cancel noise. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Devialet Gemini have ANC enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background noise.
The Devialet Gemini sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic covering that reduces your environment sounds well as preventing the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that they tone down ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
The Devialet Gemini have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass. The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, the unit size determines the sound made by the earbuds.
The Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio component produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
BLX Earbuds Gen 1's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini make sound with a juicier bass than the BLX Earbuds Gen 1
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio device makes high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
BLX Earbuds Gen 1's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies 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.
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 have to charge the device less often.
BLX Earbuds Gen 1's battery life is less than that of Devialet Gemini by 1.5 hours . 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.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and Devialet Gemini's case is said to have 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.
BLX Earbuds Gen 1's charging case has a battery life of 13.5 hours, less than that of Devialet Gemini by 4.5 hours

Devialet Gemini support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Devialet Gemini will work fine with your MacBook. If you are planning on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The BLX Earbuds Gen 1 support AAC as well. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves higher sound quality than MP3 encoders at the same bit rate.
Devialet Gemini support APTX Adaptive, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It has a variable bit rate (between 279kbps and 420kbps).
Devialet Gemini have 2 microphones.
The BLX Earbuds Gen 1 microphones are 2, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini . More microphones record better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out noise.
