I've used it too for my headphones as well as speakers, and audio components in general (sources and amps/receivers).

Pink noise in itself is really very interesting. See Wikipedia's Pink noise for more details. Also check White noise, or the entry Colors of noise.

Is it just static?

No static is white noise. Read the wiki article.

I have the feeling some people really exaggerate the effectiveness of pretty much everything... yes, I'm talking to you, Rick Hunter.

Well pink noise had been used in the pro audio industry for that purpose for years, so they may be more effective than just simply music, honestly it is far less pleasant to hear, I don't think that they prefer to listen that stupid noise instead of music....

i find it funny that people think they need "lossless pink noise" lol.

you're burning in your f'in headphones, not trying to pick out nuances in the pink noise...

i burn mine in with gold ol' fashion listening, so i can tell differences over time.

Nice. The pink noise generator in the free audio package is fine, but I don't invest any money in sound cards or USB amps, so burning in a pair of headphones through my computer is sort of pointless.

It's not so much that I'd listen to the pink noise and thus need a higher bit rate, its just that, to me, the more detailed the audio, the better the burn in. Plus, in a lower bit rate pink noise file, its possible that some frequencies are omitted due to compression, and the drivers are not tested with this frequency. Call me crazy for caring, call me whatever you want. It's just that in the end I'd rather do everything as best as absolutely possible

I believe in pink. A couple of cans ago I thought I had a set of cans fully burnt in and decided to play some pink noise overnight. All I can say is the change was clearly evident.

P.S. Lossless pink noise sounds a lot better than 128.

Would I lose any audio-information by converting a FLAC file to a WAV file so I can burn a CD of it? (Foobar doesn't have a CD burner)...
