Hey so I have just bought a pair of SR-80 few hours ago and I have managed to burn it in for over 2 hours, still it sounds nothing but so thin... Am I just too impatient?

You're absolutely correct, Silver. You are quite a bit too impatient here. You see, Grados need a lot more than a F-ing 2 hours to burn in properly -- in fact, at least 24 to 48 hours.

HI: I burn all my cans in for 50 to 100 hours before serious listing.

When I was first burning in my cans, I did the same thing -- pumped MP3s into them day and night. I kept coming home from class or waking up the next morning really frustrated though because my computer kept crashing for no good reason. So I then turned off the hard drive idling, sleep mode, and screen saver.

It was just frustrating because I kept waking up thinking... "joy, now my cans will actually sound GOOD!... hey... wait a minute here...."

My SR-80s sounded like *** till after burn in. They sound much better.


I burned them in through playing computer games. That worked well.

My SR 225s took about 100 hours to sound great. About 150 for the W100s.

What is your source?
It just might not be the phones.
