How to burn-in a newly bought iem?(Ai-m6)...especially Joker I need your help again:P

O yea...I bought a Ai-M6, and finally it comes to y house
I always heard that an iem will perform better after iem, so I search some info about it..
however, in the net some say burn-in with a slightly higher than the normal volue...some say burn-in with normal volue; some say burn-in with pink white noise(wt is this???), some say just simply use the songs I listened to usually; some say burn-in 8hrs and rest 30ins, soe say burn-in 3hrs and rest 10mins....

OMG...thats so many ways to do it....I understand that if i brun -in in a wrong way...the iem will be damaged....so how should I burn-in correctly?

thx guys

This is pink noise : http://www.burninwave.com/download/pinknoise.wav

I've never heard of resting an IEM during burn in ... I'd just hook it up to my computer and let them play that file on repeat overnight.

...lol. Not sure about 'resting' your IEMs but 100 hours is usually the recommended 'safe' burn-in period. That said, if you're liking what you hear and you aren't trying to be objective for a review or something you can indeed just burn in as you listen. If not JLab's pink noise generator may be handy, or the link posted above.

There really is no way to incorrectly burn in an IEM. As long as the drivers are flexing the desired result will be achieved eventually. And don't worry about damage - don't crank them up so high you can hear them from the other room and you should be fine.

the way they are burnt in isnt really that important..any way should work fine
i usually just plug them into my spare mp3 player and run it overnight

Slightly louder than the maximum volume you can listen to should be fine.

the JLab say like 4-5 hrs a day for burin-in....40hrs continously is not good....

u mean the voices exaggerate the s or sh sound? that would be sibilance if thats what you are referring to

That's not sibilance. Sibilance is the exaggeration of the 's' sound in vocals. Sounds like you have an impedance mismatch (most IEMs have very low impedance/high sensitivity), resulting in hiss. What's your source?

Ummm, that sounds like hiss, to me.
