The high-end speaker manufacturer Devialet is launching its first pair of earphones called Devialet Twins. The in-ear headphones have active noise cancellation and cost £ 279 in the UK. They will be available in the coming weeks.
The Devialet Gemini are completely wireless, which means there is no cord between each earbud like Apple's AirPods. The company has developed three new patents for the product.
They have cascading decompression chambers, which means they should get stuck in your ears and apply adequate pressure. In-ear earphones require a good seal.
There are two microphones in each earbud for active noise cancellation and a dedicated microphone for calls and other voice interactions. As with the AirPods Pro, there are several ANC modes. You can remove background noise entirely or enable transparency modes so you can hear what is happening around you.
You can choose between three ANC levels and two levels of transparency. The company publishes a mobile app that you can use to control these settings. There is also a touch button on the back of the earbuds that you can use to control music playback, noise cancellation or voice assistants.
The earbud automatically adjusts the audio signal when the earbud moves. It uses a microphone to detect a change in frequency. The app can also tell you if you are using the correct tip for your ear.
The company promises 8 hours of battery life without ANC and 6 hours with ANC activated. The case offers 3.5 charges and works with wireless chargers that use the Qi standard or a USB-C cable.
