yea ditch all of that and just use regular music. Actually try music from a variety of different genres. Classical is great for burning headphones in!

Hm.

 

I'd throw in some pink and some orange to be safe. 

 

As well as two hours worth of whale sounds.

Don't burn in with noise. You can damage your headphones that way. Just use regular music that covers a wide range in frequancy and dynamics

 

But honestly. Burn in differs from person to person. Just don't play it TO loud, and don't say you where not warned about using "noise"

How does that happen ? Noise/music - is it not all signal ? 

 

I don't understand how random noise can do any damage as long as it is not at too high a level ?

The peaks of high and low volumes can be damageing to the drivers if they are set to loud. It's really all in the volume, not to mention the static demanding on drivers. 

 

But yea, keep the volume in check and you should b ok!

Depending on the pink noise (generator) you're using, you might be sending quite a bit of very low frequency (< 20 Hz) energy into the headphone drivers.

exactly, which is why I prefer music over Noise, besides your going to be LISTENING to music, not noise, so why burn in with something un natrual!

I highly doubt any signal can damage the drivers, only time I think you can damage the drivers is overloading it with too much power.

 

Burn-in barely does anything anyway, what's the point in doing so? Just start listening to music.

Meh Burn in has worked for me, either way with new headphones I usually run em through music 24/7 the first week I own them. When I'm not listening. The run in a drawer on slighty louder volume than I was listening with.

so whale/dolphin (bird chirping/thunder/rain) sounds along with music are not recommended for burn in?

When you start hearing that grating noise from the voice coil touching the magnet in the driver you'll be at the late end of the damage caused by the music.

What headphones have done that?

 

If you are suggesting that music can cause the voice coil to touch the magnet and create a grating noise then the transducer design is flawed or just not good in the first place...in which case R&D should get the heat for that mess of a product not the music.

That's ridiculous, just use your headphones for what they're intended for... music/movies/games. They'll burn in, just have some patience.
