Burning in IEM´s

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I bought the Vsonic Gr07 Mk2 and I read on the forums it needs a long time to burn in.

 

I plan on just letting them play for 2 weeks 24-7 using my ipod music (all kinds of music genres it contains) on average to high volume.

 

Would this work? Or do I have a risk of destroying my IEMS this way. I got no idea how it works technically so...

Let them have a rest now and then. I'm not sure on your working / social hours. Though I'd set them up at night before bed time say 10pm then let them run through to about 12pm the next day. So what's that? 14 hours then let them rest for about an hour, I don't know why but the rest period seems to contribute, Plus it let's the driver relax.

Set your EQ to flat and about 3/4 volume. Put them on while adjusting volume for burn, avoid any distortion, you'll feel it, they'll have a sweet spot somewhere around 75% - 85% volume. then wrap them up in a shirt but the ipod on hold. If you want to start at lower volumes say 70% the first few sessions, do so.

Late at night when it's silient they get pretty loud cranking away.:P

It sounds insane, but get them up to 250 - 300 hours. (For GR07 MK2)

Enjoy! It's a damn choir after a while.

you should let them rest. 2 weeks continuous playing won't be good for the drivers. leave them on at nights. you can listen to them normally in daytime.use white/pink/brown noises for burn in :)

And of course don't be afraid to listen to them when you want!

People are going to drift in here and tell you it's all a myth and bla bla bla. Just follow your heart and your GR07 will love you. wink.gif

every audio driver is a electro-mechanical device that moves physically. everything that moves, does it even better after some "practice", Burn-in" or whatever you want to call it. I don't get how people can call burn in a myth... burn in does exist and it is always noticeable. i won't change cheap drivers to some high end ****, but it will be able to do whatever it is intended to do a little better. that's all.

GR07 MK2 particularly require some treatment because of their bio-cellulose drivers. Mine have matured into something truly wonderful. It didn't happen over night, didn't happen over the first week but by jess it did happen! Burn in is very subjective here, there's two fast lanes that firmly believe in both sides. Even the mere thread title calls them in flocks. I've seen it too many times.

Hopefully this thread will be spared. redface.gif

well, I don't really like blind believers as well as naysayers who are skeptical to everything equally. I can understand that the measured 1 db or so of difference in fr that burn in creates may be really hard to discern, but even if one doesn't look for these differencies, one will still hear it eventually. I guess that's to lossy and lossless audio - many can't really differentiate the two, but somehow listening to lossless is always more satisfying than lossy music (especially low bitrate mp3s . i's not like there's this huge improvement, but the slight refinements are pretty important imo :)
