The best way to 'burn in' new headphones is to spend a bit of time listening to familiar music with them, to let your ears adjust to the new sound-signature.

I was just commenting on this on another post. My DT990's sounded like mud out of the box. They Improved significantly with jus one day of break in. They improved even more over the weekend and yet I don't think they are done breaking in yet. They are listenable though.

I have just read a Taiwan forum (yes I am a Chinese). They said the soundstage always change before 1000hours of burn in time :P

After that much time, you'll more likely hear a change due to the pads compressing...

I tried the DT 990 premium 32 Ohms. And I found the mids and somewhat pronounced treble to be the problem. The mids sounded hollow and small covered by the treble more than the bass.

And the treble was also a bit brighter than my Grado SR 60i. Although, it was extremely airy.

 

Would the DT 990pro model have fuller forward mids and lesser treble without losing the airy quality of the other variations ?

And has anyone tried the DT 990 pro with portable amps like the Fiio E6?I have the Xonar DGX + E6.

How good would they sound?Would I lose some bass and treble out of a portable amp?

I'm almost dead set on buying the DT 150. My friend praises them very highly and how they compare against the HD 650 and higher models. I believe him, but If the pro model corrects the hollow sounding mids , I might change my mind.
