80%-85% of Max volume. Yes. I would never listen to my headphones and earphones this loud. It is not max volume but it is audible easily off the head. I had to cover it with a blanket for the overnight burn in as it was too loud. lol! My unwritten rule about music burn in. First have them on your head crank up to what you would consider fairly loud. Take them off the head and turn up half a notch. So if it was 70% volume turn it up to 75%. That should do it. And just let burn in take place.
For these carbon nanotubes I went a full notch over loud for me which was 70% to 80% volume..Not full blast yet fairly close.
It was around 40-50 hours when I noticed a tighter sound. @100 hours is an acceptable amount but I am going for 200 hours.
Oh and as a heads up. Watch what you write for impressions as it will be immortalized on a link on the first page.
