Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by a casing, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids such as 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 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, Mpow Flame S have a rating of IPX7 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, Mpow Flame S has a higher liquid rating than Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We prefer a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry.
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this case since they don't have cables. This is a key distinction as some wireless earbuds have cables linking the 2 earbuds .
The Mpow Flame S come with wingtips, these are commonly used for workout earbuds and come as an optional add-on to the separate silicone ear tip for a better fit.
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance
Mpow Flame S's resistance to sweat makes both devices fit for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
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 Mpow Flame S and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and inverts the soundwaves to counter it. In simple terms, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero resulting in a reduced level of noise.
The Devialet Gemini have ANC allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
The Mpow Flame S too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the devices ideal for flights and rush hour travels. Each work with different noise cancellation types, pick the setting that suits your travel or that enhances your chill time.
Devialet Gemini stay well in place, this creates a sound seal that reduces your environment noise and also prevents the device sound from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this implies that both tone down ambient noise instead of actively using ANC to cancel it out.
The Devialet Gemini have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass. A driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size dictates the sound produced by the device.
Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio component produces low recognizable frequencies and if it alters the signal while at it.
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio device makes high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
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.
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 requires fewer chargings.
Mpow Flame S's battery life is more than that of Devialet Gemini by 6 hours . Each 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.
The battery life of the charging case is given by the vendor, and the Devialet Gemini's case is said to have a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with more battery hours allows you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
It requires 1.5 hours to fully charge the Devialet Gemini's battery. It is highly adivsable to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds when they have been unused for extended periods.
Devialet Gemini's battery power is 55mAh, battery power, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can keep.
Devialet Gemini, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the earbuds, you simply put down on a compatible charging pad.
Devialet Gemini have a battery level indicator, an indicator alerts you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights show the charging status of your earbuds and charging case.
Mpow Flame S too have a battery level indicator, these allow you to tell the charging state of your earbuds, whether fully charged, or having a low battery.
The Devialet Gemini have USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power in a single cable.
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.
Mpow Flame S 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 to connect via Bluetooth.
Mpow Flame S 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. Because it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it can provide better results than other codecs at the same bit rate.
Since its the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Devialet Gemini will work fine with your iPad. If you intend on using these with Android , ensure that they also support aptX HD, LDAC, or LHDC as well.
The Mpow Flame S 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.
Mpow Flame S support LDAC, a codec developed by Sony which allows streaming high-resolution audio over Bluetooth connections at up to 990 kbps at 32 bit/96 kHz. It is capable of a very high bitrate of 990kbps, which provides high-resolution audio.
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).
Mpow Flame S support APTX Adaptive as well which implies that both can adjust the bit rate for different scenarios, such as reducing interference from other devices.
Mpow Flame S support APTX Low Latency, a codec developed by Qualcomm. It uses Bluetooth 5.0 technology to provide low latency audio (around 40ms), which is useful when you want to avoid audio lag for example when playing games.
The Mpow Flame S support APTX HD, an audio codec for Bluetooth devices that are developed by Qualcomm. It supports high-quality 24-bit audio (at a bit rate of 576kbps).
