Intro

The BGVP DM6 is already felt to be an older semester in the fast-moving time of Chi-Fi-In-Ears. The DM6 came out shortly after the DMG and completely does without a dynamic driver. One could now expect 6 BA drivers, but they are " only " 5.
The DM6 is more aimed at meticulous listeners, as it is still musical, but still quite analytical.

Handling

The DM6 is created in 3D printing and gives the optical impression of a custom IEM. It is precisely processed and its transparency makes it easy to inspect the interior. Here it is noticeable that a smaller housing would have been better, such as the much more compact DMG or DMS. Since I can call myself an ear giant, I don't have any problems, but I'm not the standard either.

The scope of delivery is quite impressive! You get a pair of form tips, 2 sets of silicone tips (S, M, L), a cleaning brush and a decent 8-core cable with L-plug, which is very robust, but also a bit stiff.

The isolation is quite good, but from the outside some things penetrate to the inside and vice versa.

Sound

The DM6 has received a lot of good reviews regarding its sound characteristics. These are certainly not unfounded, but unfortunately the DM6 can't play at the top.

The bass is well tuned and largely linear. The midbass looks better on him, because the pressure drops quite fast in the low range, but he develops a good punch further up and gives the signature some warmth. The used driver (Knowles 22955) is also used in the TENHZ P4 Pro, where it is too early tilted. The problem with the DM6 is less pronounced, which means that even bass-hungry tracks are well served breakfast, with good detail rendition and texture. Rarely the midrange bass seems a bit bloated, but on the whole it remains clean and stable. Here you have to admit that KZ/CCA can perform with their bass BAs for less money, surprisingly well and even better when it comes to impact.

The mids score above all with their clarity and resolution. They are taken back in the mix, but this is only noticeable with lower male voices, which don't have the presence of their female counterpart. Above all, the clean, fast response of the BA drivers ensures very good instrument reproduction. Unfortunately you have to adjust to one or the other unpleasant peak, which clouds the listening experience a bit. This is amplified the louder you turn up. For the quiet listeners among us, this might not be a big negative criterion, as it is not noticeable. Nevertheless, the DM7 performs better than its little brother.

The highs convince with a bright, detailed and airy presentation. However, sibilants and peaks are no rarity here, but are part of everyday life. Depending on the source and the genre, this impairs the audibility. Nevertheless, this is all within a tolerable range. But especially in rock music I find the cymbals and guitars too much in the foreground in the interaction with the mids and dominat, which gives a very analytical impression and also reflects, but the musicality and dynamics gets lost a bit.

The separation is very good due to the direct response, speed and spatial division. Every detail can be perfectly located in the room and is clearly reproduced, without overlapping. The stage is well sorted by the 3D effect, but not the biggest. But because it also fits the depth, a very good sound image is reproduced in the head, with occasional detours into the distance, especially with effects.

Outro

BGVP start with the DM6 the first attempt to bring a pure BA-In-Ear of the upper class on the market and manages this on a very good level, however, fails perhaps for the time being at the own requirements. The DM6 is a very good in-ear, which still has some flaws in the frequency response, which is reflected in unpleasant peaks from time to time, but above all stands out with clarity and resolution. So the DM6 is at eye level with the TENHZ P4 Pro, which has the disadvantage in bass, but the smoother midrange. Nevertheless, both have to struggle with peaks.
But in comparison I love the DMG with its dual-dynamic driver & 4 BAs, which also has some problems in the tweeter, but is more dynamic and musical. Above that there is the DM7, which I also appreciate very much for its peak-free, warm, relaxed style with at least the same level of detail as the DM6.

Legend

Haptic:

Here the processing plays a role and the usability of the scope of supply. Additionally the appearance, wearing comfort and robustness.


Value:
Here I evaluate for me subjectively the price/performance ratio - does not flow into the evaluation!

Z: No Brainer

A: money well spent

B: all right, you can do

C: gives better for less money

D: overpriced

E: collector's price

Daily life:
Here, I focus on the long-term audibility and whether I can hear it well out of the box. This is of course very subjective and therefore only a minimal deduction or bonus.
