There is an admitted "loosening" of the driver diaphragm/membranes that does occur with some headphones from simple vibration of the driver, which does result it a more fluid listening experience. However, it isn't due to "hundreds of hours" of burn-in time as some sources may say; with a looping playlist of an array of pink noise, white noise etc.. It occurs within the first few hours of listening, most within the first hour.

It's not a myth but more it's exaggerated. It's real thing but there's other psychoacoustic factors as well. Also the inital period is mroe than 1 hour. It depends on the size of the dynamic transducer diaphragm. It's around 50-60 hours for full-size headphones, 20-30 for in-ears. This only applies to moving coil / dynamic transducer (same thing, different names) systems, which is what most audio outputs like speakers, microphones, headphones, in-ears use. Other systems such as BA (balanced armature) do not express burn-in characteristics.
