Build quality on the BGVP DMG seems very good, with the shells made of solid metal alloy (supposedly aluminum and magnesium mix). They consist of a two metal pieces well attached together which appear to be thick enough and do carry some extra weight, but not much as to affect the comfort. The shape is quite unusual for a universal IEM, with a custom in-ear form meant to offer a more natural and ergonomic fit. Apart from the two pieces joint section, the finish is very smooth with metallic matte color.

There are two small vents, one on the upper part close to the cable socket and a smaller one on the inner side of the shell. The DMG feature a simple tuning system with 3 different nozzles. The nozzle has a standard width but a bit short so the fit is a bit shallow; however, the unique shape may block most of the outer ear area. While the shells are a bit large holding 6 drivers per side they sit very comfortable. The isolation is around average or a may just a bit above and no driver flex noticed with any ear tips used.

The 3 nozzles are identical in shape and the only difference is on the mesh material used (or lack of) just below the nozzle grill. The gold one which provides the strong bass amount has a thicker mesh, while the blue (red or black) has a thinner one for a more balanced sound. The silver has no extra mesh inside which gives more treble quantity and less bass.

The included cable is quite good, at least on this non-mic version. It consists of two strands with a silver-plated copper wire inside and clear plastic (TPU?) outer sheath. It is soft and looks very nice too. The 3.5mm L-plug is well relieved and has a small extra metal cover. The MMCX connectors are not the standard ones; instead they have a small split on them in order to give a much stronger grip, so once attached they won't rotate around the earphone socket unless some extra force is applied.

With a multiple driver hybrid setup of 2 dynamic and 4 BA units per side, the BGVP DMG brings a powerful sound with very solid technical abilities. While not a completely balanced sound, the DMG is fun (and maybe very fun), wide and carries good clarity and separation, putting the accuracy a bit as a second priority.

Despite the 3 included exchangeable nozzles, the sonic differences are not major. Noticeable when going from one nozzle to the next one, but still keep the same overall sound characteristics. The blue one (or red or black, depending on the IEM color) has the more v-shaped sound, balancing lows and highs to a similar level, while the gold gives a warm/darker response. The silver one has the clearer sound with more effect from the BA units and a cleaner bass response. Blue and silver nozzles are very close in overall balance, though the bass on the blue is similar to the gold filter. Gold nozzle gives the most bass impact and smoother and laid back midrange and treble.

Regardless the filters used, the DMG has v-shaped response with a strong bias towards the low frequencies and overall warm tonality. The bass emphasis is very strong, full and thick in texture, rich and dynamic. The strong impact is mainly on the mid-bass region; not too overwhelming or unnatural heavy bass, but definitely highly enhanced. However, it's not just a mid-bass lift; there's plenty sub-bass rumble and good control and extension. The quality is very good; it has good separation and nice layering. Speed is normal with a natural attack, if a bit slow decay to completely match the BA units speed.

Midrange is a bit recessed, mainly in the lower mids, whereas the upper mids can maintain a good balance with the bass and treble. The strong bass impact has some effect on the midrange tonality; gives more fullness, texture and weight on lower instruments but affects the separation. Also sounds drier on the lower midrange, with less quality for male singers. Upper midrange is more articulated, richer and cleaner. Not completely smooth but very good control and handles sibilance well. Female vocals are more highlighted too and carry sweeter texture. Despite the v-shaped response, it's still an enjoyable midrange.

Treble presence is more dependent on the nozzle filter used. Very smooth with the gold one, still detailed but more forgiving and laid-back. With the blue (red/black) and silver nozzle it is more forward and lively. A bit smoother at the treble top on the blue option, and more extended and effortless with the silver; either way, there is plenty of sparkle and energy. I find the gold and silver to have the best quality; they're opposite in the treble presentation, but sound more natural, while the blue filter compromise the timbre. Quality is good, has control and speed, though not the most accurate and refined.

The soundstage is probably one of the best characteristic of the DMG, surprisingly very wide for the ~$100 price, open and spacious. Even just out of the Fiio M3K which has a small stage, the DMG is still wider than many IEMs for the price (e.g., IT01, E4000). Scales better with the M0 and much higher with more solid DAPs. The extra width may affect the imaging, and the DMG is not best in coherence for a hybrid setup. It is more about fun, detail and musicality.
