Burn-in Files - Page 2

post #16 of 35
Yea i usually listen music at 70%, sometime higher.
Ad i said i played your files for 10 hours no stop at 70% , hope my brand new shure 530 didn't get damaged

if u burn in at normal listening level u cannot break em since it would be no different then u listening to em at that level but u should give em a break every hour or two for 15 minutes

Please explain to me how you figure an armature IEM can require nearly a month to burn in.
Placebo, that's how...

Armature-type drivers DO NOT burn in...maybe if they'd never been used before, and hour or so to loosen up playing music would suffice. LOL...

From Wiki:
A balanced armature is a sound transducer design primarily intended to increase the electrical efficiency of the element by eliminating the stress on the diaphragm characteristic of many other magnetic transducer systems. It consists of a moving magnetic armature that is pivoted so it can move in the field of the permanent magnet. When precisely centered in the magnetic field there is no net force on the armature, hence the term 'balanced.' As illustrated in the second diagram, when there is electric current through the coil, it magnetizes the armature one way or the other, causing it to rotate slightly one way or the other about the pivot thus moving the diaphragm to make sound.

The design is not mechanically stable; a slight imbalance makes the armature stick to one pole of the magnet. A fairly stiff restoring force is required to hold the armature in the ‘balance’ position. Although this reduces its efficiency, this design can still produce more sound from less power than any other. Popularized in the 1920s as Baldwin Mica Diaphragm radio headphones, balanced armature transducers were refined during World War II for use in 'sound-powered' telephones for military use. Some of these achieved astonishing electro-acoustic conversion efficiencies in the 20% to 40% for narrow bandwidth voice signals.

Today they are typically used only in canalphones and hearing aids due to their diminutive size and low impedance. They generally are limited at the extremes of the hearing spectrum (<20Hz, >16kHz) and require a seal more than other types of drivers to deliver their full potential. Higher end models may employ multiple armature drivers, dividing the frequency ranges between them using a passive crossover network. Some combine an armature driver with a small moving-coil driver for increased bass output.

thanks, now i feel better.
Btw since you have the 530 too, did u notice any improvement adding a D2, im intereted in ibasso amp.
Is it worth?

Thanks

Placebo was exactly what I was thinking, glad to see I am not the only one who thinks a month for an armature is insane.

...not that placebo isn't without merit. I mean, if you THINK it sounds better, then it will, and good for you. Funny how no one ever experiences "reverse placebo", in that things begin to sound worse (until they suffer from upgradeitis and want to validate needing new equipment).

It may take a month to get used to the sound of an IEM though. They are pretty weird.

I agree.
I will delete the time table.
Thanks

I break-in my headphones the old fashioned way... I listen to music through them.

Thanks for the files

Thank you for the files.
I did today burn a CD with your files. I am right now burn-in my SA6. I have missing such files for weeks.
I did too add a 15 min. silent track on the CD to let them take a breath every hour.
The rest of the space is used for my favorite songs.

Thanks for this post my friend! These files are awesome!
