That is actually what I have been doing to be honest, I was going to be using the London Philharmonic Orchestra, which is a great orchestra group that covers a lot of classic songs and bands like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, but then also video game music like Elder scrolls etc. I actually say check them out because they have a lot of unique music and noise. I do not know how well it will help the burn in process, but I will let every one know if I see a difference. Getting the new phones tomorrow noon time.

Well, my pair of K240S is finally burned in. How do I know? After three weeks of active listening to just above everything, they sound better than the samples from Sonic Sense Pro Audio. And I know you cannot make a pair of $100 headphones sound like something for $200.

 

I am still somewhat annoyed at how the upper mids and highs are a little underpowered. AKG should look into this when they make Mk III or smth.

I would love to see a true double-blind study on headphones. Three headphones. One is burned in, one is not, and the third has a 50/50 probability of being one or the other. See how many people can correctly match the two that have the same status, with bonus points if they can tell whether it's burned in or not.

And I'd love to get paid for this.

If I had the resources I'd totally organize it. It sounds like it'd be kinda fun, and it'd settle the debate. I figure a few models of headphones would be necessary.

You just know it wouldn't. People would say, "I don't listen double blind; I listen to my set up with my ears, &c., &c."

Thanks a lot for those files. My HD650 should be here in a couple of days!

Not experienced on this subject, but does it matter if you just listen to music for about 200 hours ish, when a friend picked up a new pair of b&w p5 there was quite a difference. Also, is it limited to "one burn in"? Can you burn in the lows first then the mids then the high or are you supposed to do it all at once?
