I make a habit of it each year to only watch Netherlands-Deutschland and cheer for Deutschland, I even acquired a german flag this year and put it on my car lol. Did get some strange reactions driving with a dutch license plate and a german flag, especially when I was driving in Germany ;).

But this can't be blamed on my brain burning in. I would still be able to atleast hear  the distortion. I think it's a combination of the two factors and that, ofcourse, one headphone changes alot while another might barely change.


Even though I'm rather new again to this whole audiophile stuff after years, the Brainwavz B2 are known to not require any 40-hour+ burn-in. Now, while that's true, they definitly changed after a few hours. So, whatever may be the case, I'd say giving any headphone/speaker/IEM a few hours (around 6 will do) when they're fresh out of the package is a plus, which doesn't sound strange.. everything fresh needs to settle a bit.

There's a difference between burn in and drivers loosening up....

That settling I talked about is probably the latter, and might be what the Holy Gouda experienced? :P Just needs to have a name, right ;).

Hooray, I'm stoked! Will we have an appropriate source for the Auralic Taurus at the meet? I wouldn't wanna have to lug around a fullsize-CDP (which is nothing special to begin with). I only have one piece of luggage on the flight and - as mention before - it's too much stuff already. I'm only bringing portable sources too, as much as I would have wanted to bring the ZeroDAC.

No, because the biggest headphone amp I own is a Fiio E9...

 

If you want a case for your 337, I suggest looking at Pelican... Prepare for a second mortgage though...

No experience with those, but at approximaely half the price of a similar sized Pelican case, it might be an interestng product.

 

I went with the Vanguard cases as they are even cheaper, and I dont really bring my gear into situations where water- and dustproofness are required.
