Devialet is a French company that was formed in 2007 by a group of sound engineers who decided to produce speakers, but with technical components that allowed them to deliver audio with high fidelity.
It began as a start-up and it has been invested in by brands including Renault and Foxconn.
To date, despite having only three wireless speakers: Phantom Gold, Phantom Silver and Phantom, Devialet has filed more than 100 patents for audio codecs and technologies. The above, the cheapest, costs about $2,000.
The company announced the launch of its first wireless headphones, Devialet Gemini, this Friday.
It will provide the same technology and audio quality as the speakers, according to the company, but with an additional noise cancellation system and transparency mode.
All for a $353 dollar price.
The headphones are of the in-ear variety and provide a set of rubber bands to isolate the outside sound, like other models of active noise cancellation (ANC).
Devialet has decided not to opt for an AirPods style design, according to the Xataka blog. The Gemini is smaller, flat on the front and built to fit into the ear of the consumer.
According to the French business, in order to process the signal and enhance the sound experience in the event that the earphones move, each earphone monitors 8,000 times per second for potential sound leaks.
You can choose between three ANC levels and two transparency mode levels.
Without active noise cancellation, Devialet guarantees that its headphones give up to eight hours of autonomy and up to six hours with the feature enabled.
The Devialet Gemini pre-sale will begin on Saturday, 10 October 2020. There has been no official release date announced.
In addition, a mobile device application will be provided to allow you to monitor the configuration of the headphones.
