I wanted to say hello to everyone, as a new member who has just made my first substantial headphone purchase after some research, the Sennheiser HD438. Previously, I had mostly just used the basic headphones that came with CD players and the like, or retailed for ~$10. The only departure was that previously I was using a Tritton AXPC 5.1 surround sound gaming headset. Recently I decided to look for a better listening experience, and after lurking on these forums a bit and looking at various models elsewhere, I decided on the HD438.
I was wondering a few things for those familiar with these phones: Will they benefit a lot from burn-in? Can I use these right out of my laptop, without an amp? And more generally, anyone have any advice for someone new to this whole scene? Thanks
