The Dark Force
>> The ZERO sometimes leaves me a bit perplexed. Warm, soft, quite dark compared to other BGVP models and yet detailed and transparent when the music and source are right. Sometimes intimate and oppressive, sometimes clearer and separated. An IEM with two sides. Brighter players are definitely welcome!

The ZERO is surprisingly bass-heavy, which I wouldn't have expected from the driver choice. Sometimes I find it a bit overwhelming, especially with rock music, as the mid and high frequencies rarely manage to provide clarity. The bass tends to booming a bit and is not the fastest on the market. Spongy is the wrong word, but the bass of the ZERO definitely likes it softer and more organic than hard and punchy. That might work better in genres like jazz, or partly classical music, but I would like to see more facts here than to flush everything soft.

From the bass on it goes up, also concerning the rating. If the bass is not too much in demand, the mids can unfold and convince me with their voluminous and smooth nature. However, for me they are anything but natural, as the bass gives them too much warmth. Here, I feel a bit reminded of the BGVP EST12's "sugary" mids, but they are much clearer and more transparent. You get used to the signature of the ZERO, but still I always have the wish for more clarity and brightness. Voices are quite intimate and fade into the background. With acoustic music, this creates a cosy atmosphere, but can also cause narrowness and loss of naturalness. Basically the mids are quite unique and certainly not bad, but I don't like this presentation much.

With the highs I experience a similar play as with the mids. Partly I'm really taken with it because of the good resolution and the details, on the other hand I'm sometimes afraid to fall into a dark hole when listening. Again, the ZERO clearly benefits from brighter sources and although the driver is easy to drive, it also benefits from more powerful DACs. What the ZERO has to be credited with is its absolute freedom from sibilants and peaks. On the other hand, there is a fast roll-off in the high frequency range and you usually have to concentrate on the musical content if you don't want to miss anything. Certainly suitable for relaxed listening, but nothing for analytical purposes.

The ZERO is a rather intimate IEM, due to its warm and darker tuning. This is of course also reflected in the stage. However, the stage is surprisingly three-dimensional and also offers enough space to separate instruments well from each other. A clear strength of the ZERO within its possibilities. Still a bit unusual and not consistent. <<

Analytical Dark
Preliminaries
The IEMs come with 3 pairs of "Vocal ear tips", 3 pairs of "Bass ear tips", 1 pair of "Memory foam tips", 3 pairs of unmarked tips. I used the "Bass ear tips" as they fit the best. Also included is a small soft shell case and an MMCX cable with an inline mic.
The tip selection is excellent but the cable is prone to tangles. Overall a serviceable package.

TL;DR
Warm dark sound with lots of detail retrieval. Like detailed mids and highs but hate sibilance or harshness? Get the BGVP Zeros. IEM enthusiast? Do give them a listen, as they have one of the more interesting tunings to hit the market.

Bass
Bass is clean and tight with plenty of volume, sufficient to satisfy most. However, on certain tracks the mild hump in the 300hz-500hz range can cause muddiness (listen to the taiko drums in NieR Gestalt & Replicant Soundtrack – Song of the Ancients - Fate) and sub-bass is almost entirely not present.

Mids/Treble
This is where the Zero is most interesting. Although its sound signature is dark and sibilance is virtually non-existent, it does not lack for detail retrieval. Quite an oxymoronic thing to say. Vocals are crisp but smooth (?) (listen to Birdy’s Wings (Acoustic)) and rhythmic electronic stabs are piercing but not harsh (!?) (listen to Camellia’s senpai, notice me! at 0:44). This might be due to how fast the Zero is (listen to the finger snaps in the opening of (G)I-DLE’s Senorita) thanks (presumably) to its electrostatic drivers.

A curious “side-effect” is that vocals/lead instruments tend to be emphasized in solo sections, but recede when the rest of the instrumentation kicks in (listen to Birdy’s Wings). The former is usually a good thing but I found myself wanting the presentation to be more coherent when the latter happens.

In summary, the BGVP Zero offers a very pleasant, very comfortable V-shape-esque sound signature while still managing to retain an analytical streak with good technicalities that punches way above its asking price.

Soundstage
Small, typical of most IEMs, nothing much to say here.

A unique and detailed IEM with great vocals
The Zero is built out of metal and has a very unique jelly bean almost seed like shape.  It is comfortable and flatter shaped than other IEMs in its class.  The BGVP comes in a very nice box with a nice amount of accessories the case is a nice addition and well made. 

Build: Is solid , comfortable and the cable is decent with a nice rubberized coating that is soft, my large fingers had a little bit of a hard time putting on the MMCX connectors because of the seed shape  and small size but I eventually got them on without a problem. The hard case has plenty of room inside for a small DAP or MP3 player.

Sound:  

Bass: Is tight and refined with some noted sub bass but is not the focus here its more neutral.

Mids: are forward and vocals have a nice intimacy to them and are so detailed and natural with the right amount of warmth to them. 

Treble is detailed and smooth with a nice but not over emphasized sparkle.

Soundstage: is wide and deep and there is some excellent imaging here and a great openness to the sound presentation.

Conclusion:

The BGVP stands out of the pack of new and unique tuned IEMs with its own take on it and is a pleasurable detailed and open sounding IEM with warmth and good musicality, it can be enjoyed for long listening sessions without any fatigue or discomfort, its good looking and solidly built with every accessory included to enjoy right out of the box.

BGVP Zero - A Pleasant Surprise
The Zero is such a unique and pleasant surprise! It has a very different tuning from other BGVP products, and also other IEMs in the Chi-Fi industry (in a great way).

If you enjoy an IEM that is detailed yet warm, smooth in treble & has a relatively intimate vocals, then this might be what you're looking for. I REALLY enjoy it a lot for the songs that I listen to (Pop, Alternatives, Acoustics & Rock). It's a brilliant choice if you're looking for something musical that can enjoy for long hours. In terms of fit, the Zero is also very comfortable to wear.

Lastly, thank you so much to Daniel, the shop owner, for always recommending me new products & being so welcoming! My friend was very glad about the purchase! What more do I have to say? Visit Oardio & try the Zero (& other products). A happy experience; a happier you!
