Ingress protection ratings is the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to protection 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 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.
In comparison to the Devialet Gemini, JBL Live Pro 2 have a rating of IPX5 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, JBL Live Pro 2 has a higher liquid rating than Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We take in account a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
JBL Live Pro 2, at 9.6g weigh more than the Devialet Gemini by of 1.6g
For a device to be true wireless it must have no cables linking any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this matter since they don't have wires. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have wires linking the two earbuds .
JBL Live Pro 2 also is true wireless because it doesn't have cables linking the two earbuds .
Devialet Gemini are resistant to sweat
JBL Live Pro 2's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use during long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, 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 JBL Live Pro 2 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and producing -1 (inverted noise) giving zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The 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 noise.
JBL Live Pro 2 too have ANC making both devices ideal for flights and morning commutes. The Devialet Gemini and JBL Live Pro 2 operate with different noise cancellation settings, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for commute or that enhances your chill time.
Devialet Gemini sit well in place, this creates a sound seal that reduces background sounds and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out .
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that they limit ambient noise without using technology 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 the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the sound made by the device.
JBL Live Pro 2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 1mm , 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 yes, larger drivers can generate 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 inidcates how well an audio component produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Live Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini make sound with a juicier bass than the JBL Live Pro 2
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component generates high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
JBL Live Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies 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.
JBL Live Pro 2's sound pressure level measurement is 93dB/mW. How loud something is can be taken differently by separate people, so we need to have the means to get a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
JBL Live Pro 2's battery life is more than that of Devialet Gemini by 4 hours . Every time you recharge your device, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not 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 more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before recharging the case itself.
JBL Live Pro 2's charging case has a battery life of 30 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 12 hours
