Burn-in most definitely works for at least some headphones. I was a real skeptic but my Takstar Pro 80's were initially too harsh for me at the high end. A few songs were near impossible for me to listen to with any enjoyment so would not make it through a single full play. I have real sensitivity to the highs (not just fatiguing to me but uncomfortable to painful). I was told to burn them in which I did and they kept improving over a few months. Now I can listen to anything through them. It is definitely not my ears adjusting. I found the same discomfort from sibilant (newer) Moxpad x3's and x6'sin ears but have not had the same improvement. I think driver size/type may have something to do with whether it can make a difference. My 2 cents.
