Review : BGVP DM6 – bulls eye

Specifications

 

For the nit-pickers and nerdy ones here, I’m giving the full specs and technical sheets . For all the others, you can just go to the next page to see how the DM6 performs.

Balanced Armature drivers

The BGVP DM6 is a multi-drivers IEM, a five drivers IEM more specifically. All of them are provided by Knowles, the leader in the market, and are specifically tuned for BGVP.

The drivers used are 1×22955 and 2×30017. The first are dedicated to the lower range of the spectrum and the latter to the upper range, thanks to a three way crossover. If you take a look inside the shell of the DM6, you’ll see how big the 22955 is compared to the other drivers.This transducer alone can be filled with the whole set of four 30017 driver, that’s how big it is.

The technical sheets are available on Knowles’ website but that’s only half the truth. We saw many great tweeters with amazing design, yet awfully tuned in disastrous IEMs… Still, I’m curious to hear how it will sound, my latest 5-driver IEMs are the Earsonics ES5 and I preferred the ES3.

3D Printed shell

It’s becoming the norm : 3D Printed Shells. Thanks to science, 3D printing is becoming more and more popular and affordable. To make things even better, the precision now equals hand-built shells, allowing batch production of IEMs or CIEMs.

To produce their DM6, BGVP uses an EnvisionTEC 3D printing equipment. The German company has been working for major brands like General Electric’s, Phonak, Siemens or even Cartier to offer high-end solutions.

The good news is how cost-effective it can get compared to traditional human-made ear molds. Sure, there is still a lot of work behind it to make the monitors sound good, but that leaves more time and energy allocated to acoustic tuning.

A nerdy guy with a passion for audio and gadgets, he likes to combine his DAC and his swiss knife. Even after more than 10 years of experience, Nanotechnos still collects all gear he gets, even his first MPMAN MP3 player. He likes spreadsheets, technical specs and all this amazing(ly boring) numbers. But most of all, he loves music: electro, classical, dubstep, Debussy : the daily playlist.

      These are not the slightest bit treble heavy. I would describe them exactly as he did.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t call them treble cannons. I find them very neutral.
      Seriously, you have either faulty pair or using wrong tips/not getting seal.

      How are these compared to Shozy BG?

      I’m in for some Chi-fi IEM’s around 300-400$ maximum budget
      I’m looking for something fairly balanced but more towards warmer side, with mids at least in line or a bit more pronounced than trebles.
      There’s so many of those new IEM’s it’s hard to choose. DM6 and shozy seem to be among standouts, even though they are only around 200-250$.
      Do you think either of these are a good choice or is there something that’s actually worth adding extra 100$?
