I will still listen more before I write my final review, but I just listened to these tonight for about 2-2.5 hours and enjoyed them. Using my Galaxy S4 with the Neutron music player app and 2 simple bands of EQ I was able to make them quite enjoyable for a good variety of different music. I took out 4dB centered at 80hz with a 2 octave width, and I made a 3dB boost centered at 2k with a 1.5 octave width. Before these adjustments and after just over 200 hours of burn in I...
Mine should have roughly 144 hours on them as of about 9pm tonight.
That's a pretty neat piece of gear. I like the 2 band PEQ. Yamaha has always made good stuff.
The burn in debate will never end. There are manufacturers like Shure, like you stated that claim that there is no such thing, and then you'll see certain high end speakers companies highly recommend very strict break in guidelines to properly and safely break their speakers in. People will always argue about this, even if Mythbusters disproved it. Just like some people say cables make a huge difference, and then there are people who claim all amps and DAC's sound the...
I may have possibly "flip flopped" a little. One night I was commenting on needing to remove 6dB or bass, then after another 10 hours of burn in the next morning I felt the need to only remove 3dB of bass and said that the bass was almost where I wanted it, and then a day or two later came back to say that I still felt there was too much bass for my liking. Again, this doesn't make the S5 a failure, it's just not as neutral as I like my IEM's to sound. I'm also starting to...
This is pretty awesome IMO:   I love the saxophone and the viola together, and the electronic style beats are pretty cool to go along with it. 
ECM puts out some amazing stuff.    This is more contemporary jazz, but I'm giving this a listen right now, and I find it to be pretty awesome:   It's on Spotify, for people here who use that. 
I know this post is a few days old now, but I was reading this thread, catching up, and saw your mention of the Pioneer BS22's. I've had a pair since January in a nearfield setup and they are a very good speaker. Especially good if you can find them on sale somewhere for under $100, I paid the full $130 for mine and they are still well worth that. In a nearfield configuration they won't require much power, but I have about 65 watts per channel on tap for mine from an...
3,855 tracks, 383 albums, 84.6GB of music. I've added a lot of jazz to my library this year.    I also use Spotify, which helps me save some money on not buying too many CD's all at once. Helps me listen to things I like enough to listen to, but not enough to purchase.
