It's very debatable. Nobody really know and alot of sound changes happens in your brains. Just try to test it with EQ, tune your headphones a way you like and switch back after a long time.

It depends. Almost all dynamic drivers change dramatically in sound during the first 30 minutes of burn in. While undoubtedly any mechanism changes with use over time, whether you actually hear any perceptible differences beyond the first few hours depends on how "audiophile" your ears are, you getting used to the sound psychologically, and the nature of the drivers themselves. Some headphones change a lot more with burn in while others don't seem to change at all. Balanced armature drivers generally speaking don't need as much burn in as dynamics, if at all.post #1893 of 52944/22/13 at 8:58ampost #1894 of 52944/22/13 at 9:26am
Does anyone have the address for Cosmic Ears? I've got some shells to send back but lost the address sticker that came with them. Haven't heard back from Phil and want to get them back asap so I can finally listen to some music again.

Hey guys. I have been looking at the website and trying to purchase a pair but it doesn't seem to let me. Are they just not selling any ciems right now or am I just doing something wrong. I always get to this product required page. Please give me some advice. I tried emailing them, but not response.post #1899 of 52944/22/13 at 11:23pmQuote:Originally Posted by dkim87

It's because they're out of cables and monitors for the moment so they don't take any orders right now. The new cables and monitors should arrive in early may according to Phil. There's a queue system so sign up and request a purchase on the modell you want and they'll let you know when they got things in stock again.post #1900 of 52944/23/13 at 7:07am
Somebody here said that Phil was out of the country so that may be why he's not responding to emails. I haven't heard back from him either.
This wait is killing me, especially knowing that my shells are made and ready, yet no cables.
And by the way, the extra-bass BA2 experiment didn't go well (he couldn't get the bass impact from the driver), so don't ask for onepost #1901 of 52944/23/13 at 7:12ampost #1902 of 52944/23/13 at 11:58amQuote:
Yeah, I talked to Phil today too. Did you get any dates about the BA4?post #1903 of 52944/23/13 at 12:23pmpost #1904 of 52944/23/13 at 12:27pmpost #1905 of 52944/23/13 at 12:36pmQuote:
Dude, probably he is overwhelmed by the emails he received. I say, don't worry. At the end you and your ears will be happy.
