I just bought a pair of AKG Q701 from amazon. How long do you guys recommend to burn in this headphone?
So far, I have Sennheiser HD 25 i II, Sennheiser PX 200, Creative Aurvana Live, Harman Kardon CL. I hope Q701 will sound better among all headphone pairs that I have.
I have a JDS Labs C421 as my amp, but have not bought any DAC yet. Which DAC do you recommend me to buy to pair it with C421 and Q701 ?
As for the burning in:
Opinions on this matter will differ GREATLY, some say the effect of burn-in is only psychological, others say it's just the listener getting used to the headphone and others believe it needs like 50 or 500 hours of burn in.
One thing is for sure, and that's that the differences aren't night and day, so you'd better just listen to your headphones and optionally put some pink noise on repeat at decent volume when you'll not using them for a long time.
