Yeah, you could interpret it like that, but it's not implied in the quote at all.

Well let me say or ask this.
If there is or is not benefit from "burn in" could there be anyway to avoid "burn in" Since the "burn in" occurs simply by using the headphone the only way to avoid "burn in" would be to not use the headphone....so why is this a topic to debate? It will or will not happen anyway you look at it unless you never use the headphones at all.

This is a great perspective to take on it, and you're not alone in doing so. Burn-in really is a non-issue, but certain people (like me) make a big deal out of it for no good reason. Whether you believe it is necessary to put 300 hours into your headphone before listening to it or if you just stick it on your head and roll with it, the hours get put on it and that's that.

All it says is that the headphones don't require burn in - so it also does not imply that there is no benefit to burn in. However, I have to agree with max-9

Whatever benefit that exists from burn-in will occur regardless of whether or not someone specifically attempts to burn in a pair of headphones or uses them normally. That said, I think the debate is more whether or not people should bother leaving their headphones running while they're not in use on the listeners head for the first dozen to few hundred hours or so, in order to get the headphones to sound their best sooner rather than later.
