I'm new here (first post) but I've been surfing the web for months because I was in need of buying a new headphone and this website has become the main resource for me.
I must admit that I found many many opinions here and sometimes I've been confused by the amount of information you gave in certain discussions.
I'm not an audiophile, but I would like to be one, one day. Anyway, to summarize the situation, I have to say that according to my needs and budget, I finally decided to order a Pioneer SE-MJ751, yesterday from amazon. Please don't kill me if I made a "bad" choice, I'm not a fashion addict, but I had short budget and I've been undecided until the very last moment, between these, the JVC-S400 and the ATH-SJ55. (Yeah, I'm a Japan lover XD). I mostly decided upon dual drivers feature and my impression about build-quality and fitting because I always had problem with this and I need a very "tight" headphone.
Well, I'm waiting for them to arrive very anxiously but I would like to know something more precise about the burning-in process.
I must say that I searched a lot and even in this case I found many opinions very diverse between each other, so I decided to open a new thread.
I gave myself the permission to prepare a sort of short list (please excuse me if it seems miseducated, it's not the purpose):
- is the burn-in process applicable to any headphone? (and to the mine one, of course)
- the type of sound to be used (pink/white wave - something else idk), depends on the type of the headphone? if yes, what's better for the mine one?
- is there a minimum time / fixed time / maximum time for the burn in, depending on the model?
- do I have to connect them to an amplifier or can I do it with my PC too? I have an old technics SU600 (well, my father owns it actually :P)
- do I risk to damage something if I make some mistake in the process?
Really thank you to everyone of you who'll help me; sorry for my noob-ness and for my poor english.
Thanks in advance.
