Burning-in reduces headphones lifetime?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi! Does burning-in your headphones reduces their lifetime?

As long as you will not over driven it the answer is no.

The drivers are usually outliving the rest of the headphone :-) don't worry about putting a few hundred hours on it.

Theoretically, yes. Assuming that the drivers have a limited lifetime, any time spent on burn-in will reduce the headphones lifetime.

 

But if burn-in is necessary, the per mil of total lifetime used during burn-in is probably well spent, making the enjoyment of the remaining lifetime much greater. 

 

Short version: Go ahead :bigsmile_face:

By how much will it be reduced if I burn in my headphones for around 200? Will it reduce a lot of the life time, like 50%?

No.

 

The reduction of lifetime will be insignificant. Even if you spend 200 hours on burn-in.

 

The reduction of lifetime is purely theoretical, and will probably not be of any importance in real life :-)
