New to Burn-In?

What is Earphone Burn-In? It is the process of making your fresh pair of earphones practice music playback, so that you can get optimum performance from them in the long run.

Why do I need to Burn-In?

A fresh pair of earphones from the assembly line, are tested for performance and output, although their speakers did not have enough time to play before release. This implies that the speaker diaphram – which accurately produces the voice coils sound waveform is still tight, and needs to loosen up a little. For a more vigorous output performance, you have to stress the driver by letting the earphones play music at least for 40 hours.

What is the best way of burning-in my earphones?

There are many methods of burning-in your earphones. The most widely used method is to play an array of different music genres. This will help you do a test run for an entire audio spectrum. All the different music has to be played at medium volume levels, to avoid any damage to speakers during initial stages of burning in.
The best way to ensure you have stressed the entire audio spectrum is to play frequency sweeps, radio, white & pink noise, sound channel mixes, heavy drums, and more at a medium volume level.

Cycle your Burn-In Time

A one-time stressful burn-in can be harmful to your earphone drivers. During the initial stages, the speaker cones are feeble, and over-straining can damage them. Your best bet is to cycle your burn-in by playing different music in a period of 4 to 5 hours per day, for many days. You can burn-in for 40 to 500 hours, and for every 4 to 5 hours of playback, you have to provide your earphones a rest period.
