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.
