IP ratings is the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids such as dust, while the second refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Devialet Gemini's rating for solids indicates 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.
Compared to the Devialet Gemini, Nothing Ear 1 have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids
Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to move with.
The Nothing Ear 1, at 9.4g weigh more than the Devialet Gemini with a difference of 1.4g
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 don't have cables. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have cables linking the 2 earbuds .
Nothing Ear 1 also is true wireless because it doesn't have cables connecting the two earbuds together.
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance
Nothing Ear 1's resistance to sweat makes both devices ideal 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 separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
The Nothing Ear 1 also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (noise) and producing -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 therefore "diluting" the noise.
Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, good for your ears since you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The Nothing Ear 1 too have Active Noise Cancellation which makes either of the devices ideal for flights and morning commutes. Each operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the setting that you prefer for commute or that suites your relaxation time.
Devialet Gemini sit well in place, this creates a sound covering that tones down your environment noise while preventing the device voice audio from leaking out .
Both Nothing Ear 1, and Devialet Gemini have passive noise reduction which implies that they limit ambient noise without 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.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size dictates the sound made by the earbuds.
Nothing Ear 1 driver unit is 11.6mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 1.6mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so it's true that, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 1's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Devialet Gemini can make sound with a juicier bass than the Nothing Ear 1
The Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it changes to the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 1's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this means that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, is the pressure level 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 commonly given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
Nothing Ear 1's battery life is less than that of Devialet Gemini by 1 hours . Each 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 vendor, 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 multiple times before recharging the case itself.
Nothing Ear 1's charging case has a battery life of 29 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 11 hours
It requires 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.
Nothing Ear 1 takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini's battery capacity is 55mAh, battery power, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
