So as i am getting closer to trying out multiple full size headphones and picking the best one for my needs and personal liking i am starting to think ahead to get the best out of what i will be paying for. I am a huge bass head, but i absolutely need clarity in the mids and highs, no muffled sound or feeling can be accepted, well maybe just a tiny bit, i would probably get used to it if the rest of the headphones are great for me. Anyways, i plan on trying out the Sony MDR X10's first and i read here: http://www.wired.com/reviews/2012/11/sony-mdr-x10/ It says "to get the truest impression of a speaker’s sound they need to be “burned in” for 100 hours or so... That’s exactly what I did...they were greatly improved. The midrange frequencies in the soundstage were much more defined. The bass and treble were still holding court"
So i am wondering if burning in headphones or even just this particular model will really make a difference in sound, this guy seems to really believe so and says he does. I ask mostly because i am afraid burning them in will cause more damage than help; if there is no damage that can be done by doing so, i will probably do it anyways since it wouldnt hurt to do so and there is only possible improvement to be made.
So any help and feedback would be very greatly appreciated! Please go easy on me, im new to this and an entry audiophile, long time basshead. Thanks!
