IP ratings is the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value represents protection against solids say 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 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.
Compared to the Devialet Gemini, Jabra Elite 5 have a rating of IP55 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, Jabra Elite 5 has a higher liquid rating than Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We take in account a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to carry.
Jabra Elite 5, at 10g are heavier than the Devialet Gemini with a difference of 2g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is a major distinction since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the pair of earbuds .
Jabra Elite 5 also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables linking the 2 earbuds together.
Devialet Gemini are resistant to sweat
Jabra Elite 5's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, cardio sweat workouts , etc
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.
The Jabra Elite 5 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced kind of tech to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 thus "diluting" the noise.
Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The Jabra Elite 5 too have ANC making either of the devices ideal for plane rides and morning commutes. The Devialet Gemini and Jabra Elite 5 operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the setting that you prefer for travel or that suites your chill time.
Devialet Gemini sit tightly in place, this creates a sound covering that tones down your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out .
Both Jabra Elite 5, and Devialet Gemini have passive noise reduction which means that they limit ambient noise without using ANC to cancel it out.
Devialet Gemini have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size determines the sound produced by the device.
Jabra Elite 5 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 4mm , 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 yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not indicate that they produce better quality sound.
The Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response measures if and how well an audio component generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Devialet Gemini can make sound with a juicier bass than the Jabra Elite 5
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well an audio component produces high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
Jabra Elite 5's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
The sound pressure level, 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 for a single charge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
Jabra Elite 5's battery life is more than that of Devialet Gemini by 3 hours . Every 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 no longer play for long like they used to.
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 allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
Jabra Elite 5's charging case has a battery life of 27 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 9 hours
It requires 1.5 hours to fully charge the Devialet Gemini's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Jabra Elite 5 takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 0.5 hours
Devialet Gemini's battery power is 55mAh, battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
The Devialet Gemini, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you simply place down on a supported charging pad.
Jabra Elite 5 also support wireless charging, always look out for the charging standard of a device.
Devialet Gemini have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the device has a low battery. Its lights display the charging status of your device and case.
Jabra Elite 5 too have a battery level indicator, these allow you determine the charging state of your earbuds, if charged fully, or the battery is running low.
Devialet Gemini have USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
Jabra Elite 5 too support USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current electronics.
Devialet Gemini have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Jabra Elite 5 has a Bluetooth version of 5.2, newer than that of Devialet Gemini . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Devialet Gemini have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Jabra Elite 5 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Devialet Gemini will work well with your iPhone. If you intend on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Jabra Elite 5 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.
