Just think of it as a bonus. You don't have to roll but . . . if you do roll you get a whole new type of sound. (Not always better mind you.)

The nfb11.32 makes the re-400 sound sooo much better than a $100 iem should be allowed to sound.

I don't think I need a fullsize headphone :ph34r:

(Not even kidding)

It would probably have cost me less to have one high-end rig ... but who's kidding who?  I wouldn't have been content with that either!

I like your style... It is always nice to be able to try different headphones and associated equipment to figure out what works best for you. It is the only real way to do it.

What exactly needs burning in?

post #15538 of 18669

Sorry maybe should have added the products name :p But yea both the new cable wich the people at the hifi shop said it had to play a couple of hours before the sound opens up. The dac aswell, wich is a Hegel HD20 wich needs approx 100 hours according to the manual + the hifi shop dudes said I should leave it running a couple of days for it to open up :)

Very interesting. How does the burn-in process work on cables? :)
