Mine sound very good out of the box driven by the SRM 717, with less of the lower treble emphasis then the Lambda Nova Signature. OTOH, their bottom end is still not as extended as the LNS. I would guess I'm up to about 100 hours.
I have noticed minor improvements since I first hooked up my Omega II`s.
But since all the components in my Headspeaker system is brand new, it might very well be cause by burn-in on other components. Like the DAC, Amplifier or cables.

Also not as comfy as a friend's broken in pair. Do they get more comfortable.
The bass will very quickly go from slightly one-notish to full ranging and meaty and clean. This can also be a side effect of them not being charged properly, are you leaving the amp turned on and the headphones plugged in 24/7?
As for comfort, the SR-007 headband can be bent to be adjusted. I find that the best sound and fit comes from bending the headband inward slightly on both sides at the point where the two metal bars rise about 1 cm fro the earpieces into the main arc.
Also, ensure that you have the earpads rotated to the correct posision. The holes for your ears are D shaped and the flat side of the D should be at the back of your ear.
