burn-in is a real mechanical phenomenon in dynamic transducer headphones. Can be and has been measured. However the amount of burn-in needed is usually greatly exaggerated. In my subjective experience and measured objectively, most burn-in occurs within the first 50 hours of use in headphones and the first 20-30 in in-ears.

I Always Thought Of Burn-In Being A Psychological Thing, But It Is True To Some Extent (Meaning Not All Headphones Will Show The Same Result). My UE700's Definitely Lost It's Shrillness And It's Lower End Became More Present After About 50hrs Of Use. I Didn't Purposely "Burn" Them In, Just Went By Normally Listening To Music. No White/Pink Noise Burn Ins Or Whatnot. Just Use Your Headphones As You Would Normally And They'll Burn In Just Fine. Only Those That Are Very Curious, Or Impatient, Go Through The Whole White/Pink Noise Burn In Process.

Hey everyone
Needed help with a good pair of headphones. Will need them specifically for music listening. I was looking into the Bose Quiet Comfort 3 , so you all could suggest something along that line. All help is appreciated

There are many many many make and models. A popular one made by a Chinese company is the musiland monitor 02. All you need to do search on ebay for it. But if you want us to be specific it'd be good to know how much you're willing to spend and what connections you need coming out of it.

They're supposed to be really good. Personally i love my e-mu, and it was only £50. The sound quality is excellent, but the built-in headphone amp is poor. Now they've gone up to around £100 though.

I know that in North America you can get the 0404 which has a much better headphone amp for roughly the same price though.

how hard would be building damn good quality headphones? ive modded mics into headphones very easily and it seems if as long as i got the drivers, i could easily build my headphones. ive put mics into: some skullcandy headphones, and some surround sound headphones that work on coax or optical with a little DAC box.

seriously it seems to me that if i could buy drivers as good as $200+ headphones, i could make some wooden, maybe later, metal custom cans by putting those drivers in them.

if not, i will literally buy some broken hifi headphones where the head brace thing broke but speakers still work and take out the drivers and make my own damn headphones to prove everyone wrong. if you can build speakers, you can build headphones.

so anyone got any info on where i'd buy hifi headphone drivers to make my own hifi headphones?
