BGVP is a Chinese brand with a sound quality curve going up. We had reviewed many of their models before. And they were all good for their prices with strong bodies. Now its time of Dn2, their recent iem. Initials impressions are positive. But let’s inspect deeply.
Box, Iem and Cable
Box is a small white box with iem photo, name and hi-res logo on front. At the back there are specs and company address etc. Inside the outer box there is another wooden colored cardboard box with the logo and brand name. When you open it up your eyes shine with glimmer. 3 sets of tips named as vocal, 3 another with bass, 1 pair of foamies, seperate earpieces, mandatory documents and black box which holds the cable in. Traditional BGVP generousity. Cable is MMCX ended and somewhat tightly braided 6N Pure Copper OFC silver cable with 3 strands. The cable feels supple when you touch. Beryllium coated dynamic drivers are in solid earpieces that are clad in black. Metal coating is all over them with no black spots. Yet they are not heavy. Stock black tips come with them.

Being a Beryllium hybrid of 1ba + 1dd, sound is clean, musical and realistic overall. DD is Beryllium coated and BA driver is named as Phoenix and this is a driver they had developed. Airy, a little bright and forward. Timbre is natural. Detail level is enormous for its price. Soundstage is not too wide in studio recordings but faithful to the tracks original recording place characteristics. Thus you can and will hear the +90 instrumented rock symphony of master Zimmer as if you are listening though full sized open cans. Instrument seperation is impressive. Transparency too. You can track any instrument in a brutal metal / rock music like in this hate song. Realism gives you a life like experience especially on live recordings. Live or not, you can hear the singers breathing, chairs scratching, pages turning, fingers sliding (on guitar strings), drum sticks resonance on surfaces it hits etc. Glockenspiel on another master Oldfield is fascinating. Feels perfect to hear every bling of the plates in 3d.
On a sub full song like The Plan you are constantly feeling the fast paced rthym in your stomach. But besides keeping with the bass of the song successfully, sub bass is lacking. And midbass? You have no problems there. All the bass guitar lines are revealed in good recordings. Mids are top notch if you consider these as intruments and vocals. We won’t be repeating its merits. Treble is wow on this iem. With the help of its high level of detail and realism, trebles you hear are made of their actual materials they were made from.
BGVP Dn2 Review Last Words
This 60$ iem reminded me of Etymotic er2xr. We and I personally recommend this perfect iem to anyone looking for an iem for 50 – 100$ range. Many well known iems will be stayed put if this is on the stage. We thank BGVP for supplying us the iem for our honest opinion. See the detailed pics yourself.
