Intro

It took a long time, but now I was finally able to deal sufficiently with the BGVP DMG, which was showered with premature praise.

Such praise can be a curse and a blessing, as it usually arouses expectations that have to be fulfilled first. One often takes a more critical approach to the whole thing and thus assumes that a good in-ear also makes mistakes which are not so much to one's liking with other, previously unknown in-ears. Of course you will also get an in-ear that is simply overhyped. Not so with the DMG, which like the Kanas Pro quickly conquered my heart.

Handling

First of all, it's amazing how BGVP has managed to accommodate 6 drivers (2*DD & 4*BA) in this comparatively compact housing. The wearing comfort and ergonomic fit offered here is already great cinema! 12 Points for BGVP 😉
In addition we get a full metal housing, which is perfectly processed, i.e. without gap dimensions or quirks and has an independent design.

Included in delivery are a pair of foam tips, 3 different types of silicone tips in 3 sizes, two additional, exchangeable filters (the reference filter is already pre-assembled), a cable clip and a silver-plated, robust and very smooth cable (MMCX).

The isolation is excelent, but at high volume some of the sound penetrates to the outside.

Sound

Since the BGVP DMG can be equipped with different filters, the main part of my review is about the sound with the reference filters, which always resemble the respective housing color. There is also a bass filter (gold) and a treble filter (silver). However, my hearing doesn't seem to be sensitive enough to detect big differences between the individual filters.

Hallelujah, the bass can do something and by that I don't just mean "banging", which is of course one of its competencies, but also accurately resolving, highlighting individual bass lines and revealing fine details. It masters the high and low bass frequencies without any problems and thus covers the entire range sustainably. However, it feels most at home in the mid-bass, where it develops a decent punch that may scare some bass sensitives. I really enjoy it because, as I said, it not only booms, but always stays clean despite the impact.

The bass is powerful, but I don't find that it gives the mids an unnatural coloration or pushes them too hard. The mids present themselves very lively and clear. They lack neither body nor assertiveness, despite the obvious L signature. This is far more balanced than one would suspect, so you don't have to worry about missing anything or getting a distorted sound. The mids sound full and resolve very well. Female voices come out a bit better than male voices, but they benefit just as much from the full body and bass influence. I can't detect any gross unnaturalness in the mids overall.

The highs are as much a matter of taste with the DMG as the bass. They are decidedly detailed. Definition and transparency are typical for good BAs, which the DMG definitely has under the hood. The treble is also influenced the most by the respective filters.
In general, the highs exude a lot of sparkle and energy and give the DMG that certain something. Sibilants are an issue, though, as well as peaks here and there, but you get used to the bright sound pretty quickly and become deeply immersed in the music due to the good resolution and spatiality. Personally, I have surprisingly fewer issues with the treble on the DMG, but surely some will feel differently.

Separation and stage are very well done on the DMG. There is a lot going on here at different levels and you quickly get lost in individual details or instrumental passages. Definitely, the sound also steps outside the head and thus provides an airy and exciting listening experience.

Silver Filter: The bass seems a bit tighter and the BAs get more attention, which makes the DMG seem clearer. However, this is very subjective and really not a big audible difference.

Gold filter: Here it becomes a bit clearer. The bass remains unchanged from the reference filter, but the sound seems warmer as the highs are muted, but still remain clear and detailed. Here one can easily prevent unwanted peaks, but also loses some brilliance.

Basically, I maintain that the filters do not have too much influence on the sound, since the signature does not change much.

Outro

With the DMG, BGVP has brought out an audiophile all-rounder that is also very affordable for what it does. It is nobly crafted, has a superb wearing comfort and a defined, clear, albeit bass accentuated sound. The sound penetration to the outside provides something for point deduction in handling. The bass meets all my requirements and also the treble despite the slight emphasis on the sibilants. In the mids there are slight deductions in the B-note, because male voices could be a bit more powerful. The DMG joins the CCA C16 and the TIN AUDIO T2 in the overall ranking and is thus in best company! Clear recommendation to buy!

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.
