Ingress protection ratings refer to the rating of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value refers to protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
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.
In comparison to the Devialet Gemini, OnePlus Buds Z2 have a rating of IP55 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, Devialet Gemini has a lower liquid rating than OnePlus Buds Z2
Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We consider a lower weight better for the reason that lighter devices are easier to move with.
The OnePlus Buds Z2, at 9g weigh more than the Devialet Gemini by of 1g
True wireless devices have no cables linking any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this case since they don't have wires. This is a major difference since wireless earbuds have wires connecting the 2 earbuds together.
OnePlus Buds Z2 also is true wireless because it doesn't have cables connecting the 2 earbuds .
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance
OnePlus Buds Z2'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, devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from separate channels on both left and right sides, this creates a richer sound and a better listening experience.
Both OnePlus Buds Z2 and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation makes use of advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and after generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (counter sound by the device) to make 0 which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Devialet Gemini have Active Noise Cancellation enabling 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.
The OnePlus Buds Z2 too have ANC which makes either of the devices ideal for flights and morning travels. The Devialet Gemini and OnePlus Buds Z2 operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the noise cancellation type that you prefer for travel or that suites your chill time.
Devialet Gemini sit well in place, this creates an acoustic seal that tones down your environment noise well as preventing the earbuds sound from leaking out .
Both OnePlus Buds Z2, and Devialet Gemini have passive noise reduction which implies that they reduce ambient noise instead of actively using technology to cancel it out.
The Devialet Gemini have a unit size of 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, therefor producing better bass.
A driver unit is the component that produces sound in the earbuds, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the device.
OnePlus Buds Z2 driver unit is 11mm in diameter, making them have a larger driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 1mm , as many tend to believe 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 a particular audio device generates low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
OnePlus Buds Z2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that Devialet Gemini produce a juicier bass than the OnePlus Buds Z2
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio component makes high recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
OnePlus Buds Z2's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this implies that both devices 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.
The Devialet Gemini's battery life is 6 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average for a single charge. A device's battery life is commonly given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and requires fewer chargings.
OnePlus Buds Z2's battery life is more than that of Devialet Gemini by 1 hours . Every time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less playing 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.
This is given by the vendor, and Devialet Gemini's case has a full charge of 18 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
OnePlus Buds Z2's charging case has a battery life of 31 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 13 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 in storage for long periods.
OnePlus Buds Z2 takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the battery, equal to that of the Devialet Gemini
Devialet Gemini's battery power is 55mAh, battery power, shows the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store.
OnePlus Buds Z2's battery power is 40mAh. less than that of Devialet Gemini by 15mAh

The Devialet Gemini have a 10meters distance connecting via Bluetooth.
OnePlus Buds Z2 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. Because 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 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 OnePlus Buds Z2 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.
