I don't post often (4th time in four years) but I do follow threads and I have learned so much in my years here, so thank you head-fi.
I also took advantage of the Radio Shack sale on the M-80 headphones yesterday. Right now they are plugged into my Droid Razr Maxx and I am trying to do a good bit of the burn-in process while I watch 3 three consecutive football games.
I am brand new to on ear headphones so I will be continuing my learning here on head-fi and any advise I can get about the initial burn in will be welcomed.
I rip all my music direct from CD to flac using Media Monkey and load selected cuts onto my phone's micro SD card.
What's going on now is that I have my entire music collection playing in shuffle mode, so the genres can change from song to song randomly.
That means Alter Bridge can lead to Sinatra, followed by Stanley Clark which can then be followed by Coltrane, Luther Vandross, Return to Forever, Tremonti, Dream Theater, Jay Z, and around again to a long list of female vocalists Annie Lennox, Brenda Russell, Paula Cole, Chaka Khan, etc.
Am I doing it right?
Oh, and I love these headphones!
edit: I also wanted to throw my 2 cents worth in on the noise isolation issue that comes up in some posts. I use headphones on the subway to and from work. I listen to music and read from my ereader for 1.5. hrs each way five days a week. From the brief time I spent listening to them when I first put them on, I was able to detect other sounds in between songs (I do have gapless playback, but there is still that fade out-fade in moment). This is not a problem for me since I do want to be able to notice SOME of the sounds around me on the subway.
