So, anyone know how they compare to the similarly priced iBasso it01?
Bumping this question, I was looking at the iBasso's as well.
I listen to Hip-hop/edm/rock so I kinda need decent bass.
Not sure if this would help, but I had a brief session with the iBasso IT01 and just recently received my BGVP DMG.
I was quite disappointed with how the iBasso performed. The sound was muddy, lacking the details of the vocals and other instruments (such as cymbals and guitar). I believe the reason why it sounded muddy to me is due to the lack of sound stage and separation of individual instruments. Everything was forced to overlap each other. I was using the silicone tip for the demo session and was comparing it with my older JVC HA-FXD80 with Comply tips which for me personally, out performed the iBasso.
However it is a totally different story with the BGVP DMG. It beats the JVC and iBasso in clarity, details and sound staging. I am able to hear each instrument placement such as the hi-hats being on my right and a crash on a left. I can hear the sound moving about freely and not being restrained. I was able to discover some minor extra details from songs I have heard numerous times. It was like listening to my favorite songs for the first time again. Also I like that I am able to tune the DMG with filters to my preference which is a first for me. One drawback that I might have with the DMG is that the bass might be too overpowering with certain songs but thankfully the details do not disappear into the back.
iBasso did not sound good to me and the DMG is just amazing.
Thanks a lot! Very helpfull indeed. I have looked around a fair bit but there seems to be no good comparison between the two on the forums. Too bad the drop closed.
Thanks for the in-depth reply.
I actually didn't see this reply until now which was after I joined the drop, so i'm glad you have good things to say about these compared to the iBasso :)
Can't wait for them to come in.
