Ingress protection ratings is the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against solids and water. In the format of IPXX, 'X' represents a number The first value of the IP rating refers to protection against solids say dust, while the second refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring IPX4, the Devialet Gemini's rating for solids indicates 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, Nuraphone NuraTrue 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 better for the reason that lighter devices are more comfortable to transport.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue, at 14.8g weigh more than the Devialet Gemini with a difference of 6.8g
True wireless devices have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this case since they have no cables. This is an important difference as some wireless earbuds have cables connecting the pair of earbuds .
Nuraphone NuraTrue also is true wireless since it has no wires connecting the two earbuds .
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance
Nuraphone NuraTrue'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, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both Nuraphone NuraTrue and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
ANC utilises more advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero hence "diluting" the noise.
The Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation allowing you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't have to crank up the device volume to overcome background sounds.
Nuraphone NuraTrue too have ANC which makes either of the earbuds ideal for flights and rush hour commutes. The Devialet Gemini and Nuraphone NuraTrue work with different noise cancellation types, pick the noise cancellation type that suits your commute or that enhances your relaxation time.
Devialet Gemini sit tightly in place, this creates an acoustic seal that tones down background sounds well as preventing the device sound from leaking out .
Both Nuraphone NuraTrue, and Devialet Gemini have passive noise reduction this means that they tone down ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
Devialet Gemini driver unit is 10mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size dictates the loudness of the earbuds.
Nuraphone NuraTrue driver unit is 10mm in diameter, making both devices similar in how loud their sound gets , as many tend to believe that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver better quality sound.
The 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.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Devialet Gemini can produce a juicier bass than the Nuraphone NuraTrue
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component makes high audible frequencies and if it makes any adjustments to the signal on its way through.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices can generate equal treble
SPL, 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.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's sound pressure level measurement is 108dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be perceived differently by different people, so we need to have the means to get an objective 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 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.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's battery life is equal to that of the Devialet Gemini . Each time you recharge your device, they get a little less playing 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 has a charge of 18 hours. A charging case with a longer battery life enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go several times before having to recharge the case itself.
Nuraphone NuraTrue's charging case has a battery life of 18 hours, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the Devialet Gemini's battery. It is highly adivsable to charge fully the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Nuraphone NuraTrue takes 2 hours to fully charge the battery, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 0.5 hours
Devialet Gemini's battery power is 55mAh, battery power, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
Devialet Gemini, the device supports wireless charging. To charge the earbuds, you simply place down on a compatible charging pad.
Devialet Gemini have a battery level indicator, an indicator notifies you when the earbuds has a low battery. The battery indicator lights indicate the charging status of your earbuds and case.
Nuraphone NuraTrue too have a battery level indicator, charging indicators enable you tell the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or the battery is running low.
Devialet Gemini have USB TYPE-C, an industry-standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Nuraphone NuraTrue too use USB TYPE-C. This USB-C plug is part and parcel of most current laptops, phones, and tablets.
Devialet Gemini have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in range, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Nuraphone NuraTrue has a Bluetooth version of 5, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini . Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
The Devialet Gemini have a 10meters distance to connect via Bluetooth.
Nuraphone NuraTrue 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 can provide better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Since its 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.
The Nuraphone NuraTrue 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.
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).
Devialet Gemini have 2 microphones.
While the Nuraphone NuraTrue microphones are 2, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini . More microphones result in better sound quality and help the earbuds to filter out noise.
Devialet Gemini have a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are made to reduce noise from the earbuds' sound.
Devialet Gemini support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient noises to still be heard even when wearing them
