    They'll break in through normal usage, setting aside a specific "time" for speaker break-in is just silly for normal listening.

    They will change as you listen to them more... They will get mores smooth... But there is no "need" to specifically break them in....

    You should apply an oil based lotion to them every day, for 3 to 5 hours. Do this for about 2 weeks, DO NOT PLAY THEM BEFORE THIS!

    Then they will sound awsome.

    I'm assuming it's that AA Arsenal 15 he has listed in his sig.



    Caraudio.com - Where the average member couldn't wire a SPST toggle if they had to.


    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    btw the lows and highs are really crisp and the confort is amazing, I dont feel them on my ears, very good product, the only downfall is the mid-bass, it isnt too* punchy.
