Burning in your Roxanne once you got them back will have noticeable difference than worrying about the cable. It's also free.

How long did you have to burn in yours for?

Pardon the interruption, but nice avatar. You should join us here.

On topic though, even JHA's recommends some burn in.

The biggest change is after the first 100 hours.

Mine were not the custom version but the AKR03, there seemed to be some phasing in the highs and high mids with my pair right out of the box, I thought it'd go away after some burning in. It did mostly, and after 24 hours of white noise, even better, but still not perfect, the phasing is happening around the high mids area, around 3-10 kHz I think, the sibilance on the vocals seems to hit a certain frequency around 4kHz region, but not much outside that. The pair I demoed definitely didn't have that problem, and it hasn't really improved a lot in the last 24 hrs of burning in with music and white noise. I'm wondering if you had some phasing problems with your ones initially too?

Thanks for the tip, and sorry for opening the can of cable worms, i didn't realise how hotly contested the issue is out there in the wild internet (a few googled articles and a tour through the attached comments section showed me the error of my ways ;)  ) . i have heard a lot of people talking about burning in their CIEM's, I am keen to give it a go when i get my Roxies back, but what sort of process should i be using to do it? do i leave my IEM's plugged into my ipod overnight with the songs on shuffle? or should i be running white/pink/brown noise through them? also is volume a factor when doing it?

Different sorts or music playing in shuffle and repeat should be good enough. Jsut leave the volume at a slightly higher level than your listen level.

Burn in is a contentious subject too! At least it's free and cannot do any harm. smily_headphones1.gif

At least there was an attempt and measured a difference when it comes to burn in. i have yet to find one for cables.

Wow, I can't believe some of you guys are waiting 6 months. By the time you guys get your orders, they will be along with the next new model.

Just received email that my bf order has started cf process. Anyway there won't be any model higher than Roxanne for the next few years.
post #5594 of 6927

Is there a right or wrong way to 'burn in' new drivers? By which I mean, can I play Periphery, Monuments and Messhugah non stop for 100hrs or do I need certain tones, frequencies etc?

post #5595 of 6927
Nah,I usually use a bunch of different music, some others use white noise.
