Thanks for that. I'm using your file right now to burn in a new set of headphones. wink_face.gif

 

In case someone is curious, this site does an OK job of explaining what pink noise is. It also offers some links to pink noise files and noise generators.

A pretty nice browser based noise generator can be found here. Don't forget to set the preset to 'pink noise' when burning in your 'phones.smily_headphones1.gif

I found a free iOS app that makes things even easier. It's called 'Burn-In' and is specifically designed for burning in headphones with white or pink noise. It allows you to create a profile for each of your headphones and set a desired total burn-in time for each profile. With each burn-in session it counts down from this desired total time.

The app does offer an in-app purchase which allows you to play music from your device instead of using pink or white noise, but personally I wouldn't bother with this.

 

The app can be found here.
 

I hope it's of some use to someone here. smile_phones.gif

It's a classic App, when it was just released users had the chance to have it for free. 

 

Edit: 

I realized there's a different one

My own personal favorite one to use is one from the iTunes App Store, called Audio Sizzler - Audio Burn-In, by CubitCreations Limited

Thanks for the submission.I will use this when I get my new headphones.

Do I have to use amp for this?What are the levels of volume for burning in process?

post #352 of 353

An external headphone amp is not required. The headphone out on your mp3-player / PC / phone should do fine.

As for as volume levels go: With both speakers and headphones I always do burn-ins at normal listening levels and a bit above that after the first 5 hours or so. Pink noise is nowhere near as harsh as white noise, so a low volume setting is not needed.
