I think like most of the Kennerton Headphones, between 75 and 100 hours, for my Magni after about 80 hours the sound was another world.
Ok, I just got them today and have about 2 hours on them. I was really surprised at the quality, pictures don't do them justice at all. These headphones are top quality. The sound is another matter. I'm always nervous with break in. Like did i make a mistake, will these ever sound better ect. The sound is balanced but Im assuming the drivers are still pretty stiff.

I would think 75-100 hours As well -like the other headphones
I would definitely recommend making sure they fit for best sound
The kennerton band isn’t really all that sealing for the average person
Try bending them in as instructed above
Hope this helps
It did for me - I wasn’t happy until I made that custom change
So far the fit is pretty good. I going to fiddle with the headband a bit later. Ive bought plenty of audio equipment over the years and I always go through the bad nerve faze when they're breaking in. The doubts the listening to them while theyre breaking in every 5 minutes to see if the sound has improved. Lol

It’s normal to question ur purchase always
Best part about Kerrington is the try out period - that’s a huge selling point and clearly says they are confident in the way they are engineered to offer such a deal-
With me it wasn’t love at first listen not at all- you can read in this thread how I had huge doubts and buyers remorse - but doing what I did to customize them the way I like - the sound did get much better with band Adjustment for me And break in- so much so my jaw dropped and I kept saying I can’t believe difference

This does make me feel better. Im using ibasso dx220 and it does get warm after a few hours. I think I'm going to buy a small fan to cool it while it plays over night.

Has anybody found any hard case for kennerton headphones? I own thekk and want to get hard one for the travel case.
I bought one for my th900 from AliExpress but thekk is larger.

24 hours is much too short you need at least 75 hours to feel really a difference
That's for sure. I have them burning-in in the kitchen. I have my frying pan being used as a heat sink for my Dap lol. It works great.

Thinking I might be selling my Abyss 1266 TC. The GH 50 is so good for my type of music that my 1266 is boring.

and to think they havent even fully broken in yet... latter if you feel the need for even more bass... lol... there is that little secret called "sound carpet" protecting the holes... I'll tell you they could have more bass if you want to play and void the warranty.... Kennerton will not endorse this I am sure- thats all im going to say - PM me if you want more details...

Someone says in another forum regarding the Ghorn :

What I read about the Kennerton: much more bass, yes, but less resolution overall. More of a high level fun headphone. Which is fine. You just need to know what you lose when the bass is cranked up.

Is it true ?

In my opinion, these questions have been answered about 10 times here.

My review coming up will go through what’s what- I think it will help-
In short the ppl that use the Ghorn expect to turn volume way up when in fact they can but they really don’t need to- the horn design is nuanced and has incredible resolution at low volumes
