IP ratings refer to the level 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 means protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Having a value of 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.
The Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to transport.
True wireless devices have no wires linking any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this matter since they don't have cables. This is an important difference since wireless earbuds have cables linking the two earbuds .
JBL Tour Pro 2 also is true wireless since it doesn't have cables connecting the 2 earbuds together.
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance

Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both JBL Tour Pro 2 and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced kind of tech to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then adding -1 (inverted noise) giving 0 resulting in a reduced level of noise.
Devialet Gemini have ANC allowing you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears as you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background sounds.
JBL Tour Pro 2 too have ANC making both earbuds ideal for flights and morning commutes. Each operate with different noise cancellation settings, pick the setting that you prefer for travel or that suites your relaxation time.
Devialet Gemini stay well in place, creating a sound covering that tones down background noise and also prevents the device sound from leaking out .

Devialet Gemini driver unit is 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
JBL Tour Pro 2 driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making both devices similar in how loud their sound gets , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
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 makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
JBL Tour Pro 2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini can produce a juicier bass than the JBL Tour Pro 2
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response measures if and how well a particular audio device makes high human frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal while at it.
JBL Tour Pro 2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices 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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Tour 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 barely noticeable at first, but over a few years, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This 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 more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before having to recharge the case itself.
JBL Tour Pro 2's charging case has a battery life of 30 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 12 hours

Devialet Gemini support AAC, a codec that is used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being 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 you need to pay even closer attention to codec support for if they only have AAC they won't provide the best audio quality possible, ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The JBL Tour Pro 2 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.
The 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).
The Devialet Gemini have 2 microphones.
While the JBL Tour Pro 2 microphones are 6, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 4 . More microphones record better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background sounds.
