2. What are the main differences with competitors?

At Devialet, we strive to offer our customers products with unprecedented quality, design, and purity of sound.

 

To reach the ultimate sound quality, we worked on several patents that shape our sound rendering and listening experience.

 

  • Internal Delay Compensation (IDC®️) - Our patented algorithm perfectly compensates for the internal delay generated by a noise cancellation loop. The result: a significant gain in noise cancellation, especially at higher frequencies.

 

  • Pressure Balance Architecture  (PBA®️) -

    Devialet invented an acoustic architecture of cascading decompression chambers that ensure ideal inner pressure at all times.

    Each chamber is coated with custom acoustic mesh that proactively stops external noise from entering the system, ensuring effective Active Noise Cancellation. The result is an intimate listening experience with unspoiled sound.

 

  • Ear Active Matching (EAM®️) - Devialet Gemini owes its superior sound quality to a proprietary Ear Active Matching algorithm. The algorithm instantly captures the listener's specific ear shape and automatically tailors the signal to the ear up to 10,000 times per second, ensuring a fully immersive and intimate listening experience.

Top

  • Is Devialet Gemini made for sport?

Devialet Gemini has not been initially designed for this purpose, however, we did multiple tests during sport sessions and the outcome is positively good for biking and running! Of course, the most important part before starting any sports session is to ensure the good adherence of both earbuds inside your ears.

 

Top

  • Why using Devialet Gemini neutral mode?

In neutral mode, there is no active noise cancellation or transparency running. Meaning that the earbuds are not actively processing external sound.

Please note that even though there is no active noise cancellation, the earbuds are still passively blocking external noise.

We recommend using this listening mode when running or in case of strong wind to avoid possible unwanted sound due to the microphone's interaction.

You can activate the neutral mode directly from the app's main screen.
