Do you think that we can burn-in a specific fr.range of our headphones by playing test tones in this range?
My logic is: we have one driver (most headphones at least) which reproduces all frequencies so it doesn't matter what frequency we play, the driver works and there is a burn-in proces that affects all frequencies. Am I wrong? :)

Well, there's no question that at least part of it is mental; otherwise, how do you explain how fixed-armature IEMs "burn in" - when they physically can't. There are no moving parts. 
 
On the other hand, I'm not sure the issue is settled for break-in. There's lots more to learn.

In my opinion, “burn in” is the loosening of the diaphragm,  and I would say, that if one where to play one section of the “spectrum” only it might make a difference as to how responsive the diaphragm is to that section.
