IP ratings is the level of protection offered by an enclosure, against solids and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value of the IP rating means protection against solids say dust, followed by the one that refers to protection against liquids (sweat).
Scoring 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, Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro 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 prefer a lower weight best because lighter devices are easier to transport.

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 Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro and Devialet Gemini have stereo speakers
ANC uses advanced technology to reduce ambient sounds. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then generates a mirror signal to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like taking +1 (sound from your surrounding) then adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The Devialet Gemini have ANC enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue since you don't need to crank up the device volume to outcompete background noise.
The Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro too have ANC making both devices ideal for flights and rush hour commutes. Each operate with different noise cancellation types, pick the setting that you prefer for commute or that enhances your relaxation time.
Devialet Gemini stay tightly in place, this creates a sound covering that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the device music from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that both tone down 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 basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the earbuds, its size corellates with the sound produced by the earbuds.
Xiaomi FlipBuds Pro 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 can generate louder sound, but this does not mean that they deliver 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 alters the signal on its way through.
The Devialet Gemini's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well an audio component makes high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
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.
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.
