I just received the Purplehearts today. First thing I did was sit there and listen to them for a few hours. It sounds like I should burn them in a bit. But so far I really like them. I love it when I get new headphones and start listening to music that I've listened to for years - and discover sounds that I never heard before. I'm running them through a FIIO amp on low gain and they sound great.
if you feel like you need to burn them in, it means you hope it would be better.
You are correct - on the first listen, the sound was good and very detailed, but the range of sound was not as "wide" as I had hoped. However, after about a week, they started sounding better. I also changed out the pads to Brainwavz Sheepskin Angled - and the soundstage improved. I got back some of that "wider" sound that I was missing. These are now my favorite headphones for listening to music. Yea, the heavy, non-detachable cable is a hassle, but I'm willing to deal with it.
