IP ratings is the rank of protection offered by a casing, against dust and liquids. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number 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 the second value 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, 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
The Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are more comfortable to move with.
The Nothing Ear 1, at 9.4g weigh more than the Devialet Gemini with a difference of 1.4g
True wireless devices 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 major difference as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the two earbuds .
Nothing Ear 1 also is true wireless since it doesn't have wires linking the 2 earbuds .
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance
Nothing Ear 1'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.
The Nothing Ear 1 also have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to actively counter noise. How it works, it studies the sound pattern of incoming noise and inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and producing -1 (inverted noise) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the earbuds volume to overcome background sounds.
The Nothing Ear 1 too have Active Noise Cancellation making either of the earbuds ideal for plane rides and rush hour travels. Each operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the setting that you prefer for commute or that suites your chill time.
The Devialet Gemini sit tightly in place, this creates a sound covering that tones down background sounds and also prevents the device voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction which implies that they tone down ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Devialet Gemini driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size dictates the sound produced by the device.
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 , a common assumption 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.
Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 1's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini produce a juicier bass than the Nothing Ear 1
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component produces high recognizable frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
Nothing Ear 1's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices generate equal treble
SPL, 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 given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, 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 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 manufacturer, and Devialet Gemini's case has a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with more battery hours 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 takes 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.
Nothing Ear 1 takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini

Nothing Ear 1 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. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at the same 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 intend 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.
