BGVP DMA Review    



BGVP is a Chinese brand founded in 2015 and is the subordinate brand of Dongguan Nengjiang technology limited company. BGVP mainly produces and customizes various high-end HIFI earbuds, earphones and other electronic products. BGVP has also introduced new products such like TWS earphones and Electrostatic IEM’s this year.

The BGVP DMA that I will now review for you is a TriBrid (Triple Hybrid Driver) Universal In-Ear Monitor (IEM) with a stylish design featuring a transparent 3D printed resin housing and a fancy aluminum faceplate. Each monitor has a unique 5-driver configuration: a 9.2mm Dynamic driver with a Nickel Diaphragm, dual Balanced Armature drivers from Sonion and Knowles, and a dual Bone Conduction driver setup. The IEMs come with a premium detachable cable featuring high-purity copper and silver plating, with the option to swap between 3.5mm Single-Ended and 4.4mm Balanced headphone plug connectors.


I would like to thank BGVP for providing me DMA TriBrid IEM for review purposes. I am not affiliated with BGVP beyond this review and all these words reflect my true and unaltered subjective opinions about the product.


Price & Availability:

The BGVP DMA is priced at around 299.99 USD. More information’s can be found under the link below;


Package & Accessories:

The BGVP DMA arrives in a black box with a cardboard sleeve. The sleeve features an illustration of the product alongside related branding.

Inside the box, you’ll find the following items/accessories: 

  • 1 pair x BGVP DMA In-Ear Monitors
  • 1 x Detachable Cable with MMCX Connectors and Swapable Headphone Plug Design
  • 1 x 3.5mm Single Ended Headphone Plug Adapter
  • 1 x 4.4mm Balanced Headphone Plug Adapter
  • 3 pairs x Vocal Ear Tips (size S/M/L)
  • 3 pairs x Bass Ear Tips (size S/M/L)
  • 1 pair x Foam Ear Tips (size M)
  • 1 x Storage Case
  • 1 x User Manual/Quick Start Guide


Design & Build Quality:

BGVP DMA has a compact and sleek looking monitors shell with a very transparent 3D printed resin housing and an aluminum faceplate that comes in two different color options which are Dianthus Silver and Dark Blue same like my review unit. The resin part of the monitor was created in collaboration with HeyGears Technology, a leading brand that is specialized with the latest DLP-3D printing technology.

Inside the heart of each monitor is a Tribrid Driver configuration that consists of 1x 9.2mm Dynamic driver with a Nickel Nanoscale Diaphragm, two Balanced Armature drivers (1x Sonion 2300 Series + 1x Knowles RAD), and Dual bone conduction drivers. The Single Dynamic driver and the Two Balanced Armature Drivers are conceived to the sound nozzle with 3 acoustic tubes, while the Dual Bone Conductor drivers do have a short single tube that connects it directly to the monitor outer cavity.

The aluminum faceplate boasts a 5-axis CNC engraving process, with a sleek anodized finish.

Each earpiece features the BGVP DMA branding and a Y-shaped opening in the center, adorned with a perforated cover behind it. Interestingly, these Y-shaped accents showcase contrasting colors: blue on the left earpiece and red on the right.

The inner surface of the monitors features the sound nozzle with a metal mesh on the top that prevents the insertion of small particles like dust or ear wax

On the top of each monitor shell is a MMCX (Micro Miniature Coaxial) female connector to connect it with the detachable cable. Honestly, I would prefer it if BGVP switched to using 2-pin connectors in the future. 2-pin connectors are more widely used these days, which would make their earphones more compatible with a wider range of cables.

The monitors are pretty lightweight and do have a very robust build quality.


Detachable Cable with Swappable Headphone Plug Design:

The BGVP DMA comes with a detachable cable featuring four cores of high-purity (6N) single-crystal copper with silver plating. The cable has a braided design for improved durability and aesthetics.

Measuring approximately 120cm long, it offers soft insulation that minimizes microphonics (cable noise).

Each MMCX connector has a gunmetal-colored metal housing with red and blue rings for easy left/right identification. For added comfort during wear, the cable incorporates heat-shrink ear guides.

The cable features a metal Y-splitter and chin slider, both finished in the same gunmetal color.

A key highlight is the inclusion of swappable headphone adapters: a 3.5mm single-ended adapter and a 4.4mm balanced adapter. The adapters sport a sleek, straight-profiled metal housing with a plastic strain relief for enhanced durability.

The Sound:

The BGVP DMA employs a Triple Hybrid Driver configuration that combines Dynamic, Bone Conduction, and Balanced Armature drivers. This unique approach yields a distinct sound signature with strengths and considerations across the frequency range. Let’s take a deeper look.

The review for the BGVP DMA has written after a burn-in process of approx. 75-80 hours. I have used mainly the stock Vocal Ear Tips and the new Stock Cable that are included inside the package. The main sound sources are the FiiO M23, Questyle CMA18P and the Neutron HiFi DAC V1.


The BGVP DMA delivers a robust bass presence, emphasizing both the midbass that adds body and the subbass that delivers satisfying rumble and depth. This powerful low-end foundation remains well-controlled, with clean leading edges ensuring a tight attack and impactful delivery. This control prevents bass notes from bleeding into other frequencies, maintaining a clean and defined overall sound audible in songs like Gogo Penguin’s “Murmuration”. Whether you crave the powerful punch of electronic music like Massive Attack’s “Angel” or the depth and body of orchestral basslines like Hans Zimmer’s “The Dark Knight OST” album, the DMA’s bass performance is sure to leave an impression.


The BGVP DMA’s midrange shines with remarkable clarity and spaciousness. The dedicated Sonion 23 series balanced armature drivers render vocals with a full-bodied and natural presence, faithfully capturing the nuances and emotions of the singer’s performance. Instruments are well-separated and presented with exceptional detail, creating a clear and defined soundscape. This allows for appreciation of the intricacies of acoustic guitars, the subtle details of string sections, and the warmth of wind instruments. Male vocals like Sting and Elton John or female voices like Adel and Norah Jones are reproduced in a pretty lively and emotional manner. The DMA is also quite successful while listen to complex orchestral piece, where it shows a pretty pristine, clear and detailed presentation


The BGVP DMA offers a balanced treble presentation. It prioritizes clean highs with good detail retrieval that avoids harshness or sibilance, making for a fatigue-free listening experience. Metallica’s “Sad but True” would likely translate well on the DMA, as you can appreciate the intricacies of the high-pitched riffs without any unwanted edge. However, compared to some high-end IEMs, the DMA’s treble might lack some air in the very highest frequencies. This translates to a smoother, more comfortable sound, which may be ideal for listeners who prioritize a non-fatiguing experience.

Soundstage & Imaging:

The BGVP DMA features a wide soundstage, possibly due to its use of dual bone conduction drivers. These drivers contribute to both the bass response and the perceived sense of separation between instruments. The DMA’s soundstage offers a fairly wide stereo image, which creates a more immersive listening experience, allowing for better identification of individual instruments within the mix. This expansive presentation is particularly well-suited for genres like classical music or jazz, where precise instrument placement is crucial for appreciating the full complexity of the composition.


BGVP DMA versus BQEYZ Winter:

The BQEYZ Winter distinguishes itself with a sound profile that leans towards brightness and neutrality, setting it apart from the BGVP DMA’s more dynamic and entertaining sound profile.

In terms of bass response, the BQEYZ Winter may not satisfy those seeking depth, as it presents a more pronounced midbass at the expense of subbass presence and rumble, which the BGVP DMA delivers more effectively. The Winter’s bass has a tendency to be boomy, yet it doesn’t provide the same level of impact and dynamism that the DMA offers.

The midrange, especially the upper midrange on the Winter, sounds more elevated, resulting in a brighter sound profile that can sometimes seem unnatural and harsh, particularly with woodwinds and violins, as well as vocals. In contrast, the lower midrange of the DMA exhibits a better sense of body and fullness, which is noticeable with male voices and instruments like pianos and cellos.

The treble of the BQEYZ Winter is more pronounced, imparting a sense of airiness and adding sparkle to strings and percussion, compared to the BGVP DMA. The Winter adds a layer of presence, while the DMA provides a slightly more subdued yet relatively detailed high-end response.

The BQEYZ Winter’s soundstage is expansive, offering a wide and fairly deep atmosphere. However, the BGVP DMA outperforms it in terms of depth, separation, and imaging.



The BGVP DMA is a compelling Triple Driver Hybrid IEM that delivers a well-rounded audio experience. It has a fancy looking design and comes with a rich set of accessories and a decent cable with interchangeable plug design. Its Tribrid Driver configuration culminates in a sonic experience that is as lively as it is versatile. It offers a powerful bass with excellent control, clear and spacious midrange, and a comfortable, balanced treble. The wide soundstage makes it ideal for genres that benefit from precise instrument placement. While the very highest treble frequencies might lack some air compared to high-end models, this creates a fatigue-free listening experience that many users will appreciate. Overall, the BGVP DMA offers a winning combination of features and sound quality, making it a strong contender for audiophiles seeking a versatile and enjoyable IEM.


Pros & Cons:

  • + The Tribrid Driver configuration offers a Rich and Versatile Sound Presentation
  • + Strong and deep bass that compliments various genres
  • + Clear and Natural midrange Profile
  • + Smooth, non-fatiguing treble with good level of dynamism
  • + Realistic Soundstage Atmosphere
