Afterwards at louder volume but still one that I can tolerate if the iems are in my ears, just the usual pink, white and brown noise mixed with frequency sweeps and heavy drums for a couple of hours followed by music like psychedelic trance and trap (I personally don't like this "music" but it's great for burn-in) for a couple of hours. That's usually what I use during the night while I'm sleeping.
During the day I often just use all sorts of random music from classical, rock, heavy metal, hip-hop to that modern BS that kids these days call music but I call burn-in mix.
There isn't one specific thing I use with every single thing I'm burning in. More like trying to work on specific parts depending on the case. For instance, if an I'm has boomy bass I use stuff to work more on this area etc. So a It's not an exact science - sometimes I can be using only heavy drumming sessions or just a frequency sweep for hours on repeat. And unlike what some of the burn-in fanatics might tell you like hundreds of hours of burn-in and miracles happening most of the time you might not get any change or just a bit of improvement here and there - some peaks reduced, slightly more open sound, slightly tighter bass - stuff like that.
