    Had a listen to the new Bose AE2i's and they're sounding a little harsh in lower-mid. I have read that many 'phones need to be played for a while to sound at their best (like a violin!). Any particular advice on what to put through them and at what volume?

    It won't change, but you can adapt. Innerfidelity has the extensive tests on burn-in.

    Headphones and sound are very complex, and you can hear at least 1000 differences between two different sets, so that's why the adaptation takes some time.
