Just got the AKG-K81DJ. Do they need to be burned-in?

Actually....No.

I am a newbie who just bought my first set of cans. Haven't even listened to them yet.

However, have seen various posts mentioning something like "make sure to burn-in."


Therefore...would appreciate any thoughts on this?

I wouldn't worry about it. Just use them as per normal; they'll get "burned-in" through normal usage just fine. It's likely any sound changes will be very minor, anyway.

Put them on your head, plug them, in, put music through them, and shut up!

I couldn't handle the bass on these phones, but I'm not a basshead.

Yes, with a few days of burn there sound improves considerably.
The bass becomes more tight and impactful.
Except for the mids, their overall sound is very little like other AKG headphones.
