IP ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by a casing, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Devialet Gemini's rating is read as, the first value of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value 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

The Jabra Elite 5 also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced kind of tech to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.

Devialet Gemini have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the loudness of the device.
Jabra Elite 5 driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which implies 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 usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean 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 on its way through.
Jabra Elite 5's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini can produce a juicier bass than the Jabra Elite 5
The Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio device produces high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Jabra Elite 5's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices can produce equal treble
The sound pressure level, 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.
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.
Jabra Elite 5's battery life is more than that of Devialet Gemini by 3 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 have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the manufacturer, and Devialet Gemini's case has a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge 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
