BGVP DMA In-ear Monitors: An In-Depth Review


The BGVP DMA is the latest IEM equipped with a dynamic driver for bass, two balanced armature drivers for mid-high frequencies, and two bone conduction drivers for a robust low-mid atmosphere. Priced at $299 globally, the BGVP DMA boasts a 3D-printed shell made by HeyGears. Let's dive into a detailed review of these in-ear monitors.

BGVP DMA In-ear Monitors: An In-Depth Review

Design and Build Quality

The inner shell of the BGVP DMA is crafted from photosensitive resin, while the faceplate is made of metal. The faceplate features a Y-shaped space filled with a metal mesh, colored red on the right side and blue on the left. The overall design is minimalistic, and the build quality meets high standards. The cable is made from high-quality materials, feeling sturdy and pleasant to the touch.

Comfort and Fit

The BGVP DMA earphones are compact and fit well in my ears without causing fatigue. However, the edges of the faceplate are slightly sharp and can cause discomfort when they touch the ears. The provided eartips are of good quality. Overall, the fit is great, but the sharp edges of the metal faceplate can be a bit uncomfortable.

Sound Quality

For my setup, I used the BGVP DMA with a 4.4mm cable, Questyle M15 DAC & AMP, and a MacBook Air, using the stock eartips. The BGVP DMA has a W-shaped tuning, well-balanced with a rumbly sub-bass, clean and lean midrange, and crispy, energetic treble. The soundstage is wide, with average imaging.

  • Bass: The BGVP DMA focuses on sub-bass, offering a rumbling and thumping experience that is physically engaging. The bass has enough weight and body, with controlled decay. However, in some tracks, the bass can overlap with other frequencies, causing congestion.

  • Midrange: The midrange is clean and detailed, with female vocals sounding particularly good. Male vocals, however, have slightly less weight and body than I prefer, and at times, the vocals feel fluttered.

  • Treble: The treble is crispy, snappy, and energetic, though the overall texture is dry to my ears. While the resolution and refinement are good, they are not the best I've heard.

  • Soundstage & Imaging: The soundstage is wide, but the layering and imaging are average.
