Ingress protection ratings refer to the rank of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating represents protection against solids say 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.
In comparison to the Devialet Gemini, Skullcandy Indy Fuel 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, Skullcandy Indy Fuel has a higher liquid rating than Devialet Gemini
The Devialet Gemini have a weight of 8g . We prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to carry.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel, at 57g weigh more than the Devialet Gemini by of 49g
For a device to be true wireless it should have no cables connecting any part of the device together, Devialet Gemini are true wireless for this matter since they have no cables. This is an important difference as some wireless earbuds have wires connecting the two earbuds together.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel also is true wireless because it doesn't have cables connecting the pair of earbuds together.
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel come with wingtips, these are commonly used for workout earbuds and are usually an optional add-on to each silicone ear tip for a more secure fit.
Devialet Gemini have sweat resistance
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's resistance to sweat makes both devices good for use while doing sports such as long-distance running, marathons, training in workout bodysuits, etc
The Skullcandy Indy Fuel are both dustproof and water-resistant.
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 Skullcandy Indy Fuel and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
ANC uses more advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. ANC works when, it detects and analyzes the sound pattern of incoming noise and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) and adding -1 (inverted noise) to make zero hence "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 sounds.
The Devialet Gemini stay tightly in place, creating a sound covering that tones down background sounds and also prevents the earbuds music from leaking out at the same.
Both Skullcandy Indy Fuel, and Devialet Gemini have passive noise reduction this implies that they tone down ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
Devialet Gemini driver unit is 10mm in diameter, the bigger the unit the more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is the component that makes sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the sound produced by the earbuds.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel driver unit is 6mm in diameter, which means that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Devialet Gemini by 4mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers can generate louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
Devialet Gemini's lowest frequency is at 5Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well a particular audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal on its way through.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Devialet Gemini make sound with a juicier bass than the Skullcandy Indy Fuel
Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response shows how well a particular audio component produces high audible frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, this means that both devices can produce 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.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's sound pressure level measurement is 105dB/mW. The sound pressure level, a device is can be perceived differently by separate people, so we need to have a way of getting a standard measurement of sound level expressed in numerical terms.
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.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's battery life is less than that of Devialet Gemini by 3 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.
This 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.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel's charging case has a battery life of 27 hours, more than that of Devialet Gemini by 9 hours
It takes 1.5 hours to fully charge the Devialet Gemini's battery. It is recommended to fully charge the battery before using the earbuds for the first time.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel takes 0.3 hours to fully charge the battery, less than that of Devialet Gemini by 1.2 hours
Devialet Gemini's battery capacity is 55mAh, battery power, shows 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.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel also support wireless charging, always look out for the charging standard of a device.
The Devialet Gemini have a battery level indicator, an indicator shows you when the earbuds has a low battery. Its lights show the charging state of your device and case.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel too have a battery level indicator, these allow you to determine the charging state of your device, if charged fully, or having a low battery.
Devialet Gemini support USB TYPE-C, a standard connector for transmitting both data and power through a single cable.
Devialet Gemini have Bluetooth version of 5, Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that enables data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves.
Skullcandy Indy Fuel 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.
Devialet Gemini support AAC, a codec used for Bluetooth audio. It supports 24-bit audio at 250kbps. Since it uses psychoacoustic modeling, it provides better results than other codecs at a similar bit rate.
Being the highest quality codec that any Bluetooth-supporting Apple product supports, the Devialet Gemini will work well 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.
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).
The Devialet Gemini have 2 microphones.
Devialet Gemini have a noise-canceling type of microphone, these microphones are designed to reduce background sounds from the earbuds' sound.
Devialet Gemini support ambient sound mode, which uses microphones to channel ambient sound to still be heard even when wearing the earbuds
