Hmm. Not sure why. As long as it doesn't happen again, you should be ok. No more pink noise for break in. ;)

For burn in I'm guessing that I should just burn them in using dubstep music?

Yep, that's fine. Just not louder than you would listen to it.

Well I like to listen to them at a pretty high level. Not high enough to cause ear problems but still pretty loud. As long as im not hearing clicking or bass distortion I guess I can listen to them pretty loud right?

Read this.

 

I wouldn't listen to anything at a pretty high level for any length of time. Take it from someone who has hearing damage from headphone, concert and car stereo's being too loud. If I could do it all over again, I would be much more careful and not have a cavalier attitude about it.

So how do I know what level is ok to set the volume? The iPod touch just gives a bar and does t measure it I decibels. Don't the xb500s go up to about 100 or so decibels? So can't I just divide 100 by the number of bar settings in the volume to get the decibel volume? Given the dynamic range is similar during all songs?

Now way to really gauge it exactly without a SPL meter. I never go past 75% on my iPhone for what thats worth.

If you are worried about listening to music too loud you most likely aren't listening to it too loud
