Much have been argued for and against the practice of burning in headphones. For dynamics, I have personally conducted experiments by buying two headphones that are of the same make. There are apparent and appreciable differences between the old and the new (out of the box). At the end of the day, it boils down to what you are willing to do versus what may be perceived as a probable benefit that may be derived from the burn-in treatment.
Over time, through regular usage, your HD800 will get to that "settled sound" anyway.
