IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
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 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, JBL LIVE 300 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Devialet Gemini has a lower liquid rating than JBL LIVE 300
The Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight best for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
JBL LIVE 300, at 65.7g weigh more than the Devialet Gemini with a difference of 57.7g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no wires connecting any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this case since they have no cables. This is a key distinction since wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds .
JBL LIVE 300 also is true wireless because it has no cables linking the 2 earbuds .
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance
JBL LIVE 300's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
An earbud foam is made to be ultracompact and lightweight, with little interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. The JBL LIVE 300 have an earbud foam to some it is more comfortable than the in-ear foam.
Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL LIVE 300 and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation utilises advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) to make zero thus "diluting" the noise.
Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background sounds.
The Devialet Gemini stay well in place, this creates an acoustic covering that tones down your environment sounds while preventing the device sound from leaking out at the same.
Both JBL LIVE 300, and Devialet Gemini have passive noise reduction this implies that they limit ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
The Devialet Gemini have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the earbuds, its size determines the sound produced by the earbuds.
JBL LIVE 300 driver unit is 5.8mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 4.2mm , 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
JBL LIVE 300's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Devialet Gemini can produce a juicier bass than the JBL LIVE 300
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
JBL LIVE 300's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices produce 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.
JBL LIVE 300's sound pressure level measurement is 95dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be taken differently by separate persons, so we need to have a way of getting an objective measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
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 requires fewer chargings.
JBL LIVE 300's battery life is equal to that of the Devialet Gemini . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the Devialet Gemini's case is said to have a full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go multiple times before recharging the case itself.
JBL LIVE 300's charging case has a battery life of 14 hours, less than that of Devialet Gemini by 4 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 when they have been unused for long periods.
JBL LIVE 300 takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 0.5 hours
Devialet Gemini's battery capacity is 55mAh, battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
JBL LIVE 300's battery power is 60mAh. more than that of Devialet Gemini by 5mAh
The Devialet Gemini, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the device, you just put down on a compatible charging pad.
Devialet Gemini have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging state of your device and case.
JBL LIVE 300 too have a battery level indicator, these allow you to tell the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or the battery is running low.
Devialet Gemini use USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
JBL LIVE 300 too support USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug comes along with most current electronics.
Devialet Gemini have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data movement between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
JBL LIVE 300 has a Bluetooth version of 5, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
Devialet Gemini have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
JBL LIVE 300 have a maximum range of 10meters, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides 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 well with your iPhone. If you are planning on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The JBL LIVE 300 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.
