This was a unit owned by the owner of the shop I went to... No way to determine its age, but the leather case was quite well tarnished...

Since you quoted Duncan's response to me, I must ask: Was whose a brand new AK240 and which run in longer? Mine had been in personal use about a year at the time of my Layla audition.

I'm somewhat curious about the concept of burn-in for DAPs. I can (sort of) understand the concept of burn-in for moving parts like drivers in headphones, but what's the principle behind how burn-in works for things like DAPs that don't have moving parts?

Sorry- for lunch yesterday I just had a Sainsbury's sandwich and some popcorn, but I did think very hard about these whilst eating

Could thr difference be to the 240 being burned in more than the 380?

I slowly came around the accepting burn-in as one more thing on the audiophile landscape.  It may be that better components require longer burn-in.  I heard obvious improvements in SQ on a new dCS Vivaldi DAC at 400, 600 and 800 hours.  Shunyata recommends 200 hours of burn-in on their power distributors.  Someone at Cable Company said silver cables require longer burn-in to remove sibilance.

I suppose a way to look at burn in, but in a super quick way, is to look at how Class A amps work, how they sound better when running hot...

Haha, if we were talking about rubber, I would agree...

Layla and Vorzuge Pure II+ is a damned fine combination, I was thinking I could move away from amps, but I guess not...

I would explete when trying to explain the combation but that might well get me in trouble wink.gif

My Layla's are finally breaking in. Using Spinfits , insert and twist into ear clockwise until I get a good seal.  now prefer the sound to my IE800's.

I am going to be getting some snugs tips for mine. They are a half-shell design as the Laylas are too big to have a whole shell cover. It'll basically be a bit like a custom IEM. When I have them I will post pictures.

I've having some problems with the right ear piece (Red dot) since I bought it almost 5 months ago. Most of the times, it doesn't produce sound until I touch\move it a bit before it can work. For the past 2 weeks, it's getting worst. I had to unscrew and screw it back to get it working. After a while it won't work again.

 

Has anyone experiencing the same problem? Please let me know
