While waiting for my first pair of headphones to arrive, I've a question: What exact do I have to do to "burn in" (or "break in"?) the new headphones? Are there anything else I should do?

Btw, thanks for all the advices on the Sony V6, especially to Tempus who recommended me to buy from Shopsunshine.com

To break in, simply use them for an extended period of time at the volume that you normally listen to. When not in use, leave them playing music... (set cd player on repeat all mode, or winamp playlist on repeat)

General total break in time is around a week or two.

Well, I'm glad it worked out well. BTW, as long as my
previous advice was well received, here's some more. If
you find that some sources produce an unacceptable amount
of hiss in your new headphones, and that the hiss is
unaffected when you turn the volume up or down, you might
try adding an inline volume control. I got one at Radio
Shack for $5.49, where the part number is 42-2559. It
works like a charm at removing the hiss from my TV's
headphone jack, and also allows me to use my headphones
with my computer's screwball sound card without creating a
minor earthquake.
