Please Stop 'Burning In' Your Earphones
Don't let audiophiles fool you. There's zero evidence that burning in a pair of earphones has any effect on the sound quality. Stop wasting time and start enjoying your music. OK, audiophiles: real talk. Earphone makers seem to be either too polite or scared to say anything. And the people in the industry who should know better are only actively encouraging a ritual. So let me say it for them: Earphone burn-in is a bunch of hokum.
